The Hardest Wedding Decisions And How To Tackle Them

18 July 2017

Planning a wedding takes a huge amount of work. From all the major considerations right down to the tiny details, everything needs to be absolutely perfect. Some of the decisions that you have to make are going to be simple. Deciding when to have the wedding is fairly easy, most people opt for a summer wedding. Unfortunately, it isn’t all going to be that easy for you. Some decisions, like choosing a dress, will have you up all night, tearing your hair out trying to work out the details of your wedding day. These are some of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make, and how you can take the hassle out of them.


Maid Of Honour

Choosing a maid of honour is one of the hardest choices you’ll ever have to make. You’re essentially being asked to choose who the most important person in your life is, apart from your spouse of course. There’s always a worry that you’re going to upset the rest of your friends if you don’t pick them. Some people get lucky and they have a clear option, but for most people, it’s a struggle. How do you decide between two close friends that you’ve known for years? One way of avoiding any bad feeling is to choose a family member like a sister or a cousin, that way none of your friends end up feeling put out. You should also try to be a bit more practical about it. If there are two people that you can’t decide between, choose the one that lives closer because they’ll be helping you out with all of the wedding arrangements so having them nearby is handy.


Getting the rings right is vital. You’ll both be wearing them for the rest of your lives so if you don’t like them, you’ll be regretting your choice forever. Going for something traditional is a safe bet but it might not be the best for you. Visit sites like for some more interesting wedding ring designs. When you’re shopping for rings, always make sure that you start early so you don’t end up buying something in a panic. Setting a budget beforehand will narrow your choices down so you don’t spend hours looking at rings that you won’t end up buying anyway.

Guest List

The size of the guest list is another difficult consideration. Striking a balance between inviting everybody you want and keeping the costs in check is incredibly hard. Setting a number first isn’t always the best way to go about it because you might find that you fill that quota and still have people that you want to invite. Start off by listing everybody that will definitely be coming and see where you are from there. An easy way to keep numbers lower is to not invite any co workers or children, as well as limiting the people that you allow to bring guests. If there are any people that you disagree on, you shouldn’t invite them. Otherwise you’ll both end up writing a separate guest list and the numbers will get out of control.For more tips on your guest list, visit
