Behind every auspicious wedding, is a planner doing all the footwork and yelling orders. A planner, if you can fit them in your budget, cannot single handedly make each critical decision. While they are very efficient at timeline planning, the bride still has to make crucial decisions for their big day.
This can be a big problem if you are an indecisive person. To help you out, we have a few tips that will make decision making easier for you.
Start with your dress
This may seem obvious, but do you know that the choice of your wedding dress can set the mood and style of your entire wedding? Therefore, the very first decision you need to make is about how you’d like to feel on your big day. How do you want to look? Do you plan to dance your heart out? A whimsical, fairytale gown would be perfect! You can, for instance, go for a beautiful Pronovias Dinara flowy gown with a sweetheart neckline and a floral appliqués bodice. That decision eliminates half of the hundreds of wedding gown designs you are going to find in form-fitting designs. Do you want to look like the classic romantic bride? How about a Maggie Sottero gown’s timeless silhouette yet oh so exquisite modern details. A dress fitted to the waist, then allowed to flow to the ground, as the Maggie Sottero Whitney will ensure you look like a charming but timeless bride. The ideal dress will spark your imagination towards a wedding theme that corresponds to it.
Make a mood board
A mood board might sound old school, now that you have Pinterest boards. However, it’s one of the best ways you can combat decision fatigue. Wondering whether that is even a real condition? Yes, decision fatigue comes in after long sessions of decision-making and causes deteriorating decision quality. A mood board will act as a physical reference for your wedding day’s vision. On it, have you and your partner’s favourite places, colours, likes, must-haves or venue attributes. A mood board combined with your style and that of your dress can bring your dream wedding to life.
Identify your favourite colours
Pop into Bunnings with your partner and pick some paint cards. The only thing to be wary of is colour choices that do not sit well together. To make an easy decision use a colour wheel to build your colour palette.
Find a vendor with a similar aesthetic to your mood board’s ideas
If you want a beach wedding, a vendor who offers garden style weddings is not ideal. If in doubt, look for versatile vendors for peace of mind.
Take a break or let someone else decide on your behalf
If you are feeling a tad overwhelmed, take a break from decision making, for a day or two. Your best ideas will flow after some well-deserved rest.
If you hate decision-making, then small choices made by others will hardly ruffle your feathers. As such, it wouldnt hurt if someone else decides the linen colours. Find a good planner, or trust professional vendors to take care of some of your minor wedding decisions.
