Plan Your Wedding Like a Pro: Delegate Your Wedding Tasks With These 6 Tips

 

If you’re used to doing everything on your own in life, you’ll probably go on autopilot mode when it comes to your own wedding. Now, it’s entirely possible for you to handle everything right up from planning to execution, but it’s simply not the healthiest way to go about it. 
You’ll soon come to realize that your to-do list is simply growing longer and the number of hours or days that you have on hand is dwindling fast. Instead of pulling out your hair and wondering how it came to this, it’s time to start seeking help from those around you. Delegating is key to ensuring that the entire process flows smoothly, so just take a look at some of the tips we have down below to get started:

Prioritize 

You needn’t worry about having too little to do. After all, it’s your big day and there’s definitely a million and one things that can be done. Even if you were the most efficient person you know, it’s still not a wise choice to handle everything on your own. Decide on three to five priorities with your partner in order to decide on the things that you would really much rather handle on your own. For example, if you don’t require feedback on certain things that you’ve already determined, you should definitely handle this on your own. 
Likewise, if you don’t particularly care about the types of drinks that will be served during your wedding reception, this is a task that you can definitely delegate to family members or friends. However, this isn’t to say that they will be handling this on their own without informing you, but rather that they’ll be going through the initial research and shortlisting process before getting back to you with the final details.

Work with a Planner 

You don’t have to break your piggy bank in order to hire professional help a.k.a. wedding planners and coordinators. Most people would have little to no experience in terms of planning and managing a wedding, and instead of using up your precious resources figuring out what to do and stumbling about in the dark, you can save yourself a lot of heartache and wasted hours by hiring someone who knows exactly what they’re doing. 
Just think of them as professional consultants whose role is to make your life a whole lot easier and to help you achieve every single task with minimal to no effort on your end. After all, they are the experts in the industry, and you’ll also be able to leverage on their little black book of trusted vendors that they use on a regular basis.

Involve Family and Close Friends 

If you’ve decided on the tasks to delegate out to friends and family members, now is the time to figure out each individual’s strengths in order to fully and effectively make use of their gifts and talents. If decorating is not your forte, this is a task best handled by someone else whom you know is able to do a much better job. 
Of course, you should share your ideas and preferences with them before they start, but after that, you need to leave them on their own to sort things out before coming back to you. This means that you’ll be kept in the loop in order to understand how things are progressing, but they’ll be the ones doing the leg work and providing you with the solutions that you can then decide on. Sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it?

Delegate Tasks 

Imagine planning, organizing and running an entire wedding on your own? Although it’s entirely doable, it’s really not the best way to make use of the available resources you have on hand. After all, the only ideas you’ll be able to get are your own and whatever else you can find on the Internet. 
Brainstorming with people whose opinions you trust is a great way to leverage on other people’s gifts and talents, and it’s truly a great way to be inspired. Once you have discussed and discarded options that you don’t prefer, you can then proceed to handing out different tasks to people whom you know will be more suited to handle it. 

Let Go 

Wedding planning time can be pretty crazy, not just for you but for everyone else involved from start to end. Constantly looking over everyone’s shoulders is not going to do anyone much good and could, in fact, put others off helping you out genuinely. Once you’ve assigned tasks to people whom you trust, you need to let go of the reins and allow them to do it their way. 
Of course, this does not mean that you completely wash your hands of the entire situation, but rather that your role has now change to a supervisory one. This is great news for you as it frees up your own time and mind space to concentrate on the things you would much prefer doing. You have to admit that sounds pretty awesome, right?

Hire Professionals 

There is absolutely nothing wrong with seeking professional help in handling tasks which you’re not comfortable handling or which require more in-depth knowledge or experience. This is where sites dedicated to freelancers really save the day. Not only are they affordable, you also don’t have to learn to do something that you might only use once. For instance, if you have no clue how to design your own wedding invitations, it makes sense to outsource this to someone with the right expertise. 
Likewise, if you are unsure of how to plan and manage transportation for your wedding, you’ll want to seek professional help.
