Money is the number one source of stress during the wedding planning stages. Before you start looking at anything, set a clear budget and stick to it.
As well as your budget, make sure you get clear on your guest numbers from the very start as this will have an impact on all your other choices including that all-important venue! Remember it is your day!
If you are struggling with numbers then give each set of your parents a specific number of invitations they may send. Once you’ve made your decision about something, stop looking for further inspiration. You will only start second-guessing yourself and become overwhelmed with conflicting styles and colour choices. Trust your initial instincts they are usually always right. Your bridesmaids, groomsmen, friends and parents all want you to have a perfect day, so get them involved by asking them to help with small but time consuming tasks, such as addressing invitations.
