Top Ten Most Common Wedding Planning Mistakes!

Tailored Fit Films Wedding Planning Tips 1 Comment

Here are some of the top 10 wedding planning mistakes we hear about from couples planning the big day. Learn from their mistakes, and save you and your fiance some serious drama!

Okanagan Weddings are special, but no matter which Okanagan Wedding Venue you choose, you’re still in for a lot of planning – its important to watch out for these issues right at the start. Like every bad habit, its always best to catch it early!

Wedding Planning Mistake #1. MONEY MANAGEMENT
 Money is one of the biggest challenges you’ll ever face as a couple. Start your marriage off on a strong foot. Plan only for the type of wedding you can afford. Accept what you’ve got to spend and always shop with this in mind.
Wedding Planning Mistake #2. WEDDING FREE ZONES
Have wedding free zones in your home(s) and wedding free evenings with your intended. Then you’ll remember why you are doing this…
Wedding Planning Mistake #3. PRIORITIZE
Don’t waste time getting carried away with the details of your day until you have put in place the key elements: where and when you’ll be married,  how much you can spend. If you place a high value on your wedding photography and wedding video (which we think you should!) You’re also going to want to keep your wedding videographers and wedding photographer in mind when you choose the location and budget accordingly.
Wedding Planning Mistake #4. BE ORGANIZED
 It’s the key to successful and stress free wedding planning. Here are a few wedding planning charts to get started!
Wedding Planning Mistake #5. PRESENT A UNITED FRONT
Create your day together and present a united front to your families. Leave some room for family input – especially if they are contributing financially. But be sensitive to the desires and expectations of  your families, respect their point of view and listen – even if you eventually reject their ideas (as people sometimes just like to be heard!).
Wedding Planning Mistake #6. DELEGATE
Behind every blooming bride and gorgeous groom is a fabulous and efficient team, so delegate what you can to friends and family who have skills in areas you need help with.
Wedding Planning Mistake #7. BRIDESMAIDS & BEST MAN
Have a reliable best man and chief bridesmaid.  If your closest friends are not competent, confident, reliable individuals, give them something else to do!
Wedding Planning Mistake #8. HIRING & FIRING
Do not hire anyone or anything until you have seen or sampled their wares.  Get every detail in writing.  Before signing a contract ask: “is this your best price?” And read the small print: are taxes and service charges included – if not, you need to budget for them.
Wedding Planning Mistake #9. KEEP COOL, CALM & COLLECTED
 – especially with your nearest and dearest.  Don’t alienate anyone you’ll need later on (I’m thinking mother-in-law!).
and finally – the most important part of planning any wedding:
Wedding Planning Mistake #10. BE TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE
Create your perfect wedding, not an magazines dream day. Ensure your celebration truly reflects you, your values and your shared sense of style.
Until next time,
happy planning!

Wedding Budget – Why your wedding film should be at the very top!

Tailored Fit Films Wedding Planning Tips


Of course we’re biased, but here at Tailored Fit Films, we think that your Wedding Film might very well be the MOST important part of your wedding budget.

Yes we know – shocking! Most people plan their dream wedding, choose the perfect location, ideal photographer, fantastic caterer and the cutest cake – but wedding films somehow seem to be an extra in the wedding budget. We’re 100% convinced that your wedding NEEDS video, and that you’ll regret it if you don’t capture your day on film. Read on to find out why:


Your big day will be here before you know it.

We know how much work it is to plan a wedding. You’ve agonized over every detail. When your day arrives – you want it to be PERFECT. Planning your wedding is a labour of love. Its the first step in a series of days that lead off into forever – together as husband and wife. But when the day finally arrives – trust us, its over before you have a chance to blink!


“A wedding day is absolute magic. The nervous preparations of the morning, the anticipation of that car ride to the ceremony, the tears in Dad’s eyes as he gives away his little girl. The electricity of your first kiss as Husband and Wife”

In a flash, you’ll be cutting your beautiful cake. Before you know it, the music is playing and you’re having your first dance.

The beauty of a wedding – and really of life, is that once a moment is gone – you can’t get it back. These moments are precious, you can’t put a price on them.

Your flowers might last for a week. Your wedding cake is eaten the same day. Your DJ and Wedding Venue are gone at the end of the evening.

Your photos won’t catch everything. Only a film can capture your vows, speeches, and the magic of that once in a lifetime day. Why is it that its always at the bottom of the wedding budget? Any live event should have video at the top of its priorities, simply because nothing can capture a live event the way that a film can! Imagine watching the Notebook with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams as a photo slideshow… not as effective, is it?



Most parts of your wedding are here and gone. You only get to enjoy them ONE time, for a couple of hours. Remember that your wedding film is going to last you FOREVER – don’t let it be one of the things you try to save some money on, or see if you can afford after you plan everything else 🙂



So maybe cut back on the flower budget, invite a couple less of those guests you hardly know, or substitute a candy bar for your cake. Because when you think about cost versus value – Your Wedding Film and Photography are the MOST IMPORTANT parts of your wedding day. And that is a wedding budget tip worth holding on to.

Happy Planning!

Is a wedding film important? Should I film my wedding? is a wedding video worth the money? whats the point of a wedding video? are there any wedding videographers who make GOOD wedding videos? are all wedding videos boring?
