Why Every Bride Needs to Know How to DelegateOctober 9, 2017 by The Marquardt Ranch
Everyone knows that there is a lot of planning that goes into a wedding. From getting guests’ addresses to choosing flowers to deciding the ceremony order, there are so many things to be done. If you’re a bride-to-be, it’s important that you know how to delegate.
This week we’ll be sharing why it’s so important for brides to know how to delegate, and next week we’ll give you some ideas on practical things you can delegate to your friends and family.
Why Every Bride Needs to Delegate
You’re the bride.
You are the only one with the real power to delegate tasks to your friends and family. At the end of the day, everyone wants you to be happy. But they can’t help make that happen if they don’t know what you want. Remember that you are the bride, and you have to convey your vision and ideas to the people around you. Don’t forget, they can’t read your mind. If you don’t speak up, someone else may run with their own ideas.
This can be intimidating for brides who don’t naturally take charge, but it doesn’t have to be scary! You do not have to boss your friends around and tell them what to do. Simply tell them what you’re envisioning so they can help make your wedding dreams come to life.
You can’t do it all.
This one is a no brainer. There are just way too many things to be done when planning a wedding. You can’t do it alone! And even if you think you can do it all, you shouldn’t test that theory. When your big day arrives, you want to enjoy every moment you can. When you’re walking down the aisle, you want to be soaking in each step you take and each tear streaming down your groom’s cheek. You do not want to be wondering if every guest got their program, or if that last sign was hung up at the reception venue.
Delegating things will take stress off of you so you can truly enjoy your big day.
Your friends want to help you.
Your bridesmaids are your best friends. Ask them for help! Again, they can’t read your mind. Especially if your girls ask how they can help…take them up on it. They know you have a lot on your plate, but they can’t help if you don’t let them. Including your bridesmaids in wedding planning is also a fun way to make new memories together.
So are you convinced yet? Have you been trying to do too much wedding planning on your own, and you’re finally ready to delegate the load? Stay tuned for next week’s blog post, featuring a list of practical things that brides can delegate!
