If you are planning a wedding this year, it could be challenging. With crazy high demand coming out of a global pandemic, brides have limited options for everything from wedding dates to food to venues… it’s a true “wedding boom,” according to Brides.

Tips for Planning a Wedding

No matter how challenging planning a wedding in 2022 can be, staying focused and making quick, sound decisions will be the biggest factor in pulling off your big day. Planning a wedding requires more patience and flexibility now than ever. 

  • Be open-minded – Costs with vendors and venues are higher than usual, but it’s also necessary for you to stay within your budget so be flexible with your plans. 
  • Make sound decisions quickly – No one wants to rush things, but it could prove worse to miss out on the best opportunities. If it seems like it will be a good fit, jump on it.
  • Be flexible with dates – Think outside the box with off-Saturday dates, offseason, and non-traditional event times. You’ll have more options to choose from, plus you could end up saving a bundle.
  • Consider your guests – Get your save-the-dates out as soon as possible, giving your guests plenty of time to plan and navigate what is likely an extra busy wedding season.
  • Consider hiring a wedding planner – A good place to start is with getting help, even if a planner wasn’t originally on your list. The experience and insider knowledge they offer can really be a benefit with making your special day the best ever.
