As business owners, we are often given advice by many different people, from family and friends, to fellow business owners. Usually it is well-meaning advice, though often misplaced. Today, we wanted to share some good advice and bad advice that we have received over the years. The purpose of this post is not to simply relay the advice to you, but instead to help you be able to discern advice that is truly helpful, and advice that is not.
We’re moving right along in our series highlighting what to expect and things to think about for day-of planning. So far we’ve heavily stressed the fact that hair and makeup are essentially the beginning of your day. We feel proper planning during the first couple of hours of the day can get everything properly set into motion. Today we’re discussing the last few things to consider when planning your wedding prep.
The other day, we started a series that will give you tips for planning out your wedding day logistically. We posted a sample timeline for a traditional wedding as well as one for couples who are planning a first look. Both of them are just samples and can be used as a general guideline for your own wedding. We also noted that hair and makeup are essentially the beginning of your day. We feel it is so important, we are going to highlight a few more things to consider before moving on.
Over the years, we have learned that a well built timeline can help you have the low stress wedding you’ve always wanted. When our couples are headed down the final stretch of planning their wedding, they are often unsure about when to schedule certain things. As a best practice, we make it a point to emphasize things to consider when scheduling all of the key contributors to timing on a wedding day.
