Apart from the nice weather and the blossoming nature, Spring announces the kickoff of one of the hottest and most prosperous industries in Lebanon: weddings. From mid-May till the end of September, all wedding-related businesses are working around the clock to cater to the countless ceremonies happening across the country. Here’s all you need to know about wedding season.
Given the huge sums spent on the decorations, catering, locations, and entertainment, weddings are definitely not a trivial matter in Lebanon. They’re taken very seriously and can compete with the biggest international shows, ranging from a minimum of $40,000 to millions – the sky is the limit!
Even if Lebanese weddings seem to be a competitive affair where more and bigger is the only way to impress, this does not mean you cannot plan a wedding the way you like, one that reflects your style and personality, even if it steers away from the conventional and the traditional. After all, this is your biggest day and you ought to have fun organizing it.
Where to begin? At least by avoiding these common mistakes almost every bride-to-be makes:
1-Not planning early
It’s no secret that the sooner you start planning your wedding, the more time you have to weigh your options, find exactly what you want, and enjoy the smooth preparations. After all, preparing for your wedding shouldn’t be a nightmare!
2-Not putting yourself first
When organizing your big day, you tend to think about what might please the guests and suit their taste instead of thinking about what would make YOU happy. It’s always important to remember that this is your special day and you should remember it like you always dreamt you would.
3-Not letting the little things go
Being a perfectionist and demanding is a great quality but sometimes you have to realize that in big events such as weddings, not everything can go the way you plan for it down to the last detail. It’s important to stay realistic and to remember that having a good time is the most essential.
4-Buying your gown before choosing the venue
It’s true that your gown should reflect who you really are but don’t forget that it does have to suit the venue you choose for your wedding. After all, you can’t go for a five-meter long wedding veil and end up getting married in a garden. You’ll definitely wish you went for something easier to manage.
