With all of the new engagements happening this time of year, that means new brides, new questions, and new experiences for everyone involved! Recently, one of my new bride’s (who is also my friend, yay!) parents admittedly said that they have no clue about weddings. And it’s true- if you’re a parent and you’re starting to help plan your son or daughter’s first wedding, you probably have no clue! Especially if you’ve been married for 20+ years- weddings are way different now!


So, I compiled a few of my Thursday Tips posts from the past year to help parents learn a little more about the wedding process (and maybe some pricing too).


Wedding Budget 101: A crash course on wedding budget!

Insight Into Vendor Pricing: Prices, Fees, Tax, and Delivery- oh my!

You Get What You Pay For: Everything comes down to quality with a wedding.

Vendor Meetings: What to bring, who to bring, when to go, what to know.

Booking Your Vendors: Especially good if Mom and Dad are pitching in…

Wedding Coordinator VS Venue Coordinator: Ah, the age-old battle…

You Don’t Need To Buy That: Don’t waste your money on things you’re not sure about using!

Cutting Costs: The two dreaded words that are almost always uttered in the wedding planning process.

Upgrade A Little: Small little upgrades can make a wedding look *that* much better.


So go ahead and feel free to send this post to your mom, dad, aunt, future MIL, whoever you want! And to the parents and family members visiting this post- welcome to ELD! Feel free to ask any questions! :)
