Five Common Wedding Myths

See what misconceptions you might have about wedding planning and let Royal Palace Ballrooms help you plan the perfect wedding! 

You Have to Spend Money

It’s tempting to place a lot of weight on the budget, especially if you’re trying to create a memorable day for you and your partner on a small budget. 

But the most important thing is to make sure that your wedding is a reflection of you and your significant other — and you don’t need a lot of money to do that! Add in handmade touches that will leave your guests impressed and remember that your friends and family are there to just help you enjoy your special day! 

You Have to Invite Everyone

There is another common misconception that you have to invite everyone you know — including your extended family and coworkers — to your wedding. But if you’re planning a smaller wedding or have to stay under a maximum guest count, that might start to feel stressful.

But the guest list should only include people you want to spend your wedding day with! Whether you’re having an intimate ceremony or a destination wedding, your friends and family will understand, so make the guest list exactly what you want!

The Father of the Bride Pays the Bill

The tradition of the father of the bride footing the wedding bill dates back to the early tradition of dowries. Since women were unable to be employed and make money, they brought no monetary contribution into the marriage. So it was tradition that the father of the bride would pay a dowry and for the wedding since the husband was making a long-term commitment to take care of his bride for the rest of her life. 

But now, in the 21st century, this tradition doesn’t apply anymore. Instead, put that assumption aside and work with both sides of the family to see what strategy will work best for all of the parties involved in the wedding! 

The Color White

The bride must wear a white wedding dress. Only the bride is allowed to wear the color white. There are a lot of myths surrounding the color white and the proper way to use it at a wedding, but they’re not true. 

In fact, the tradition of brides wearing a white wedding dress didn’t become popular until the 19th century. Now, there are countless brides that opt for a dress that isn’t white. When it comes down to it, the bride needs to find a dress she feels beautiful and confident in — especially if it’s something as simple as a dress that’s not white!

On top of that, more and more weddings have started incorporating white bridesmaids dresses. This comes down to a decision made by the bride. It’s up to the couple if the tradition of white is something important to them. Beyond that, it doesn’t matter who does or doesn’t wear white!

Stress Is Part of Wedding Planning

You don’t have to be stressed to feel like you’re planning your wedding the right way! In fact, it is possible to plan a wedding without any stress at all. Prioritize what’s most important to you and ask for help or assistance when you can. 

In the end, you want to make sure you’re able to enjoy your special day. If you waste all of your time striving for perfection, you won’t have any time to experience your wedding for yourself!
