Pinterest is an great resource for brides to collect ideas. However, keep in mind that your dream cake, flower bouquet or table setting Pins may not be possible to replicate based on your wedding budget.
Look over your Pinterest board with a realistic approach. Focus on what styles and colors are important to you and use your Pins as inspiration for a wedding that is customized to you and your fiance’s personality and budget.
Mistake #2: Not keeping track of your budget while picking vendors
We understand it can be exciting to choose your wedding venue, dress, food, flowers etc. Many brides start making decisions and signing contracts one vendor at a time, only to realize you may have to skimp on the last few details because of poor planning.
