Managing expectations is a mindful practice and this will certainly prevent you from stressing over the tiniest details too much. In reality, not every step of the plan will go smoothly. There might be sudden changes or mishaps, like unpredictable weather, but it won’t mean your wedding day is ruined.

Be a bride with a vision! Go for a particular theme and motif you really love, and create your mood board. When you have specific ideas about how you want your wedding to look like this will also give your suppliers an easier time planning their service for you.

It will also be a lot of fun when you have your entourage involved in the process!
