This Is Why People Think Wedding Planning Is Hard

If you talk to anyone who’s planned a wedding before, they will definitely agree that it wasn’t even by far a piece of cake. But what are they actually saying? What are former brides and grooms saying about the difficulties they encountered when planning their Big Day? Here are some tips for you to keep in mind:

  • Money issues. Let’s face it as it is: weddings are not cheap. And when your budget is limited, sticking to small sums of money and having your dream wedding is quite the challenge. It CAN be done and you SHOULD definitely do it precisely because your love story deserves it – but arm yourself with patience and great communication skills if you want to really pull this off!
  • Spending time with all of your guests. Even if you only have 50 guests, it can be very difficult to spend time with each group and participate in the special dances and moments you have prepared. After all, the reception only lasts for a few hours, and you definitely need to enjoy yourself too – so be organized and polite, but don’t let this stand in the way of you having the time of your life. In the end, this is YOUR Big Day!


Remember, here, at The Oaks, you are bound to have a more magical wedding than anywhere else, not only because our venue is stunning, but also because we organize weekend-long events, so you will have more time to spend with your guests!

  • The list and the seating chart. These aren’t matters that feel difficult at first – until you actually face them, of course. Making your parents happy and inviting some of their friends, keeping the list small enough to fit your budget and making sure you create a seating chart that enables people to be social and happy – now, that’s a challenge even for the smallest, most private weddings!
