5 Wedding Planning Tips You Need To Know
1. You need a wedding planner
It’s doable but stressful to plan your wedding yourself if you are not in Nigeria. The easiest way out is to get a wedding planner who can manage the team. Especially if you are planning a #RoyalWedding…lol. She/he will be in charge of everything from the wedding stationery, wedding cake, wedding venue, wedding decor, wedding photographers, makeup and hair artists, table setting, fireworks display, the engagement, the food, dessert and drinks menu, wedding activities and so much more.
2. Do your research
Thank God for Instagram. Before you settle for any wedding vendor, conduct a research. Follow as many wedding vendors as possible and don’t settle for less till you find one that has done the quality or standard on event you are hoping to have. .’s why, if the vendor has done it before, he/she can do it again. Do not ever select your vendors because of the number of Instagram followers they have, only by the works they have to their name, instead, use vendors that care about the details as much as you do.
3. Make a list of the things you want to do and run it by the Wedding Planner
Do you have specifics? You need to double check. If you have a particular flower in mind for your bouquet, you need to let the wedding planner know on time so she/he can check with a florist shop if it is available. This rule appears to everything you want to do.

6. Be Flexible
This is key. Be willing to listen to your wedding planner. It’s okay to have opinions and idea of how you want your wedding to turn out. However, you need to be conscious of the fact that ideas are different from reality. That said, almost anything is possible if you have the financial capability.
7. Relax and enjoy your wedding
Don’t feel bad if somethings don’t turn out as planned. Try to enjoy every bit of the event.
