Organizing a wedding – don’t make these mistakes! How to avoid a disaster at your wedding?
Weddings are some of the most important events in our lives, but they can also be stressful and overwhelming. In this article, I’ll share tips and advice on how to avoid common mistakes and plan a successful wedding where your guests, but most importantly you as the bride and groom, will have a great time.
Where to start organizing a wedding?
Organizing a wedding is a process that requires a lot of attention and care. The first step in organizing a wedding is to set the agenda. In the beginning, it is extremely important to set a budget and stick to it. Next, it is necessary to determine the size and style of the wedding to know what elements will be needed to organize it. The next step is to choose the date and location of the wedding, which will allow for more accurate planning. For larger weddings, it’s a good idea to hire an organizer or coordinator to help with the planning and ensure that everything goes according to plan. It’s important that every stage of planning is carefully thought out and refined to make the wedding day special and memorable for all guests and the bride and groom.
If you do not want the organization of the wedding to be in the hands of an outsider, it is worth asking your service providers about their experience and advice on planning such an event. I, as a wedding photographer, am very happy to share my experience and eager to toss around different ideas.
Choosing a wedding reception venue
Organizing a wedding is quite a challenge, and one of the most important steps is choosing the right place to hold it. The first step is to think about the location, which should be convenient for guests. It’s also worth considering the capacity of the room and the available amenities, such as parking or overnight accommodations for guests from outside the region. The next step is to visit the chosen venue in person and ask questions about, for example, the menu, decorations or room arrangement options. This will allow you to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the offer and avoid misunderstandings in the future. The opinions of other people who have already had the opportunity to use the services of a particular place are also not insignificant. It’s worth checking reviews online or talking to people who have had fun there.
The last step is to check the availability of the place on the selected date and make a reservation. This way you can be sure that the organization of the wedding will go smoothly, and your guests will be satisfied with the choice of venue and the atmosphere during the celebration.
Guest list – how to make it?
When organizing an event, especially your wedding, it is important to decide how many guests you want to invite. Then create a guest list and send out invitations. It’s a good idea to remember to include all the people you want to invite when creating your list, and make sure you have their current contact information. It is a tradition in Podhale, but probably also in many other parts of Poland, to be invited to a wedding in person. It may not be the most convenient solution, but it certainly brings a lot of joy to the invited guests.
When inviting, it is a good idea to ask about any dietary restrictions so that the menu can be prepared accordingly. This will ensure that the organization of the event will run smoothly and without unnecessary surprises.
Decorations and arrangements – which ones to choose?
Organizing a wedding is not only about choosing the right venue, menu or music, but also the proper preparation of decorations and arrangements. In order to create an unforgettable atmosphere, you should pay attention to several important points. First, you should choose a theme or color scheme for your wedding. For example, it can be romantic red and white, soft pastels or a bold combination of different colors. Such a color theme will allow you to plan your decorations coherently and create a harmonious whole. Second, decide on the type of flowers, table decorations and lighting.
Flowers are an integral part of any wedding arrangement. These can include bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, decorations on the tables and in the church or office. You should also think about additional decorations, such as ribbons, candles or lanterns. Lighting is also important to the atmosphere of the wedding. You can opt for romantic candles or vintage-style lights, as well as more modern solutions, such as striking LED lighting.
If you don’t feel confident about decorating, it’s a good idea to hire an experienced decorator. Such a person will help us choose the right elements and plan the entire arrangement. However, if you feel like preparing the decorations yourself, it’s a good idea to plan all the elements in advance and use online advice. This will make our wedding unique and aesthetically consistent.

When planning a wedding menu, it is important to take into account dietary restrictions and guest preferences. It is worth considering a variety of appetizers, main courses and desserts to satisfy the tastes of each invited guest. It’s also a good idea to offer a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages so there’s something for everyone. Keep in mind that your wedding menu should be tasty and appealing to the eye, while being tailored to the needs and preferences of your guests. Personally, I think we should trust the chef at the chosen establishment when it comes to the menu 🙂
Music at a wedding – what songs to choose?
When organizing a wedding, it is worth taking care of the right musical setting for a fun and memorable experience for all guests. The first step is to hire a DJ or live band to be responsible for the music during the wedding. In my opinion, the musical setting should be chosen consciously and one should not be too insistent in imposing one’s song list on the band or DJ. Let’s trust our choice and let the musicians do what works best for them 🙂
How to choose the right photographer and videographer?
If you are planning an important event such as a wedding then you are surely wondering how to choose the right photographer and videographer. First of all, it is worth doing research and comparing different specialists in the field. This can be done by browsing the web, searching the web or using recommendations from friends. The next step is to check the portfolio and reviews of the selected photographers and videographers. This will ensure that the specialist you choose has the experience and skills to realize your vision. Be sure to choose a photographer and filmmaker whose style of work appeals primarily to you. Wedding photos and video will be your keepsake for the rest of your life.

Wedding dress and wedding suit
When planning a wedding, one of the most important aspects is the choice of outfits for the bride and groom. The first step is to start looking for a wedding dress and suit early enough. It’s a good idea to start browsing for deals as early as a few months before your planned wedding date, so that you have time to find the perfect outfits. When choosing a dress and suit, consider your body type, style and budget. A well-fitting outfit will emphasize the assets of the figure and make the bride and groom look beautiful and elegant. Let’s also not forget about accessories, such as a veil, jewelry or a tie.
Shoes are another important part of an outfit, and they should be comfortable and match the overall styling. In conclusion, choosing outfits for the bride and groom is quite a challenge, but with proper planning and consideration of several important factors, you can create the perfect outfit for that special day.
Transportation for guests – do you need it?
Arranging transportation for guests to the wedding is very important to ensure that they get there comfortably and avoid unnecessary hassles. There are several options to consider, such as hiring buses or cabs to transport guests from the wedding venue to their homes safely and comfortably. It’s a good idea to include detailed directions and parking information in your invitations to avoid unnecessary delays and misunderstandings. When planning transportation, it is also important to consider the distance and accessibility of the wedding venue, so that guests can freely get to the venue and enjoy the celebration without the stress of getting there.
Wedding coordination – how to plan a schedule of events?
Organizing a wedding is quite a challenge, so you should take care of proper coordination and planning of the schedule of events. While I always say that it’s impossible to plan a wedding so that everything happens perfectly according to the hourly schedule, it’s worth planning at least a general schedule. The first step is to create a plan for the day, which will take into account all the important moments, such as the wedding ceremony, the wedding reception, the nuptials and the wedding cake.
Then assign tasks and responsibilities to your wedding team and vendors so everyone knows what they have to do and when. It is also important to have a contingency plan for unexpected changes or emergencies, such as worsening weather or transportation problems. This way you can avoid stress and chaos during the wedding and enjoy your special day to the fullest.
Organizing a wedding can be difficult, but with the right approach and preparation, you can avoid common mistakes and have a memorable and successful celebration. Remember to prioritize your needs and preferences, communicate effectively with your partner and service providers, and above all, have fun!
