Wedding planning is one of the most exciting and stressful times in a person's life. There are so many details to think about and often, things can get overwhelming very quickly. To help you avoid some of the most common mistakes people make before planning a wedding, we've put together this list of 7 things to avoid.
Not Defining Your Budget
One of the first things you need to do before starting to plan your wedding is to define your budget. This will help you avoid spending more money than you have and will allow you to make more informed decisions about where to allocate your funds. And yet, as difficult as it may be, don't do it. Not unless you and your partner have discussed your budget and are confident that you are not spending all of your money in one location. Remember that weddings have many hidden costs (possible dress alterations, vendor trials, etc.), so make sure you're always financially prepared for any expenses that may arise.
Not Making a Guest List
Another common mistake people make before planning a wedding is not making a guest list. This can lead to problems down the road when you realize you've invited too many people and don't have enough food to serve.

For example, if you want 200 guests but have a £20k budget, which is a very good budget, it will not be realistic; it will be doable, but the expectation of your wedding will be lower.
The number of guests will have an impact on almost every aspect of your wedding budget, so keep that in mind when deciding on guest numbers.
It will have an impact on the size of your venue, and your catering because you'll have to feed everyone and all of the stationery you'll need for them (invitations, name places, menus, table plans, and so on.
Not Reminded Of The Guest Experience
Don't misunderstand me. I am a firm believer that this is your wedding, and so do you, do what makes you happy, it's your day! But you're also throwing a party to celebrate with your friends and family, and you want them to have a good time as well! So try to strike a balance between the guest experience and what is important to you. That is, I am referring to food and entertainment. Ensure that your visitors are well-fed, watered, and entertained.
Reduce or eliminate canapés during the reception, for example, because you will have hungry guests who may not have eaten lunch depending on the ceremony time and will be hungry! Give your visitors
