There is control, and then there’s an unwillingness to let anyone handle anything when it comes to your wedding preparations. Know where you stand when it comes to the ability to relinquish control and understand that your growing to-do list is just going to become more of a headache to you if you are unable to allow others to help you out.
Of course, you don’t have to actually hire a professional to help you out, but you can definitely benefit greatly from the help of people around you. Now, we understand that delegation is a skill that needs to be put into practice, so we’ve given you a few useful tips to help you get started:
Prioritize Wedding Tasks
Even superheroes suffer from burnouts when they handle too much on their own. Your wedding day is an important milestone in your life, and you really should leverage on the help and knowledge of others in order to handle matters efficiently. First, discuss things over with your partner in order to decide on a few tasks that you’ll prefer to handle on your own.
Once you’ve decided on what’s important for you to handle on your own, you can then set about delegating the remaining tasks to friends and family members so that you’re able to fully concentrate on things that are important to you. For example, if you’re not particular about the type of stationery that will be used, just let your mum, friends, or other family members handle this task. They won’t be making any major decisions but will instead be doing the groundwork for you to make the final call.
Hire a Wedding Planner
Wedding planning can be a real headache if you don’t know what you’re doing. Now, let’s be honest; most of us don’t really have a clue on how to start or even where to start. This is where wedding planners and coordinators come into the picture. Not only do they have years of expertise and connections that you can leverage on, but they can also help to delegate and manage the various tasks that comprise your wedding day planning more efficiently and effectively.
Rather than spend your energies and time on doing things you’re not familiar with, it makes sense to trust and rely on those who are able to help out. Another added benefit to using a wedding planner is that you can also leverage on their list of trusted vendors that they work with on a regular basis.
Count on Your Friends
Whether you’ve decided to hire an expert to help out or if you prefer to handle your wedding preparations on your own, it’s always a good idea to figure out the strengths and talents of your family members and friends in order to leverage on it to help ease your burdens. After all, nobody’s wedding preparations were ever meant to be a one-man show.
If you think you have absolutely no idea how to do your makeup and hair for the big day, let someone else take the lead. Share your ideas of how you envision yourself on that day, then allow them some time to come back with a few recommendations that you can choose from. The key to taking away from this is that you won’t be doing the legwork, but you will have the final decision in the end based on more carefully curated choices.
Brainstorming with people whose opinions you trust is a great way to leverage on other people’s gifts and talents. Of course, this does not mean that other people’s ideas will be better than yours, but rather that you’ll be able to use them as a sounding board to determine the best options possible for your wedding.
Once everybody has done sufficient research, gather around and share the ideas and feedback concerning different areas of the planning process. After narrowing down to just a few possible options, you’ll have a better idea of how then to proceed in terms of delegating tasks to your group of helpers. This sure beats telling yourself that you still have hundreds of things to do on your own.
Master the Art of Letting Go
Once you’ve assigned someone to handle a certain task, you need to learn to let go of the reins and allow them to do it their own way. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you are completely washing your hands off the entire process. However, the fact that you are not constantly looking over their shoulders and being overly concerned is already a big motivational boost to both them and you.
After all, trust is something that needs to be practiced constantly when it comes to planning a wedding. Now that you have others helping out, you are able to have more time to concentrate on handling the things that you would much rather be doing. Now, isn’t that simply the best solution for everyone?
Count on Specialists for Complicated Stuff
One of the best ways to get things done is by seeking professional help. Now, this does not mean that you need to hire a wedding planner to handle everything, but it does mean that help is available as long as you’re willing to search for it. For example, there are many sites that provide affordable professional services for designing, organizing and planning certain things that you might not be comfortable managing or may not have sufficient knowledge to do. Similarly, the same thing applies to planning and managing transportation for your own wedding day.
