It’s interesting to see how people make decisions when making decisions for their wedding. I think it’s easy to get overwhelmed. The way people make decisions in life are often not the same way they make decisions for their wedding.
When choosing your wedding venue, think of the criteria or preferences that come to mind. Among your criteria, think of what is most restrictive. For instance, you may really want an open hall but lots of places may have open halls. But if you have criteria about the color of the walls, or distance to the ceremony site, you will have more difficulty. Understanding your biggest restrictions is important so that you don’t waste time searching. Same goes for the dress. If your budget is $900, why are you trying on dresses that are $2,500? Don’t be curious. You will hurt yourself in the long run and waste valuable time you could put towards something else.
