Top Five Wedding Planning Mistakes

Updated: May 18, 2023

Planning a wedding can be a very hectic undertaking, as the clock is ticking and there are endless things to do.

As a jazz band for hire in the Tampa Bay area, we've seen a lot of of errors that greatly increased wedding stress, both on the big day and leading up to it.

Here’s the five common mistakes that couples make in wedding planning:

1. Not setting a realistic budget:

One of the most common mistakes couples make is not setting a realistic budget. It's important to determine how much you can afford to spend on your wedding and prioritize your spending accordingly.

2. Waiting too long to start planning:

Another mistake couples make is waiting too long to start planning. Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort, so it's important to start early and give yourself enough time to get everything done.

3. Not hiring a wedding planner:

Many couples try to plan their wedding on their own to save money, but not hiring a wedding planner can lead to unnecessary stress and mistakes. A wedding planner can help you stay organized and ensure that everything runs smoothly on your big day.

4. Trying to please everyone:

It's impossible to please everyone, so don't try to. Focus on what you and your partner want and what's important to you. Your wedding day should be a reflection of who you are as a couple.

5. Forgetting to enjoy the process:

Wedding planning can be stressful, but don't forget to enjoy the process. This is a special time in your life, and it's important to savor every moment leading up to your big day.

Avoiding these mistakes will go a long way to reducing stress and in the end having a wedding that your friends will remember and talk about for years to come.

Our band, The Harrison Jazz Ensemble, a jazz band for hire in the Tampa area, would love to learn more about your unique vision to see if we’d be a good fit help you.

Congratulations on your engagement and let's chat!
