A wedding is a wonderful event in the life of two people who love each other. In our minds, it is usually associated with style, travel, delicious food, flowers, and a sense of happiness.

"However," SSPDaily writes, "for everything to go right, the event needs to be properly planned." The online publication talked to Terri Pous, author of How to Plan a Wedding, about this topic.

Here are the top 5 mistakes she believes brides and grooms make when it comes to organizing the most important day of their lives.

Prioritize what is important to you

One of the biggest mistakes Pous believes people make when it comes to planning a wedding is not prioritizing what's important to them.

"They just think there's enough room in their budget for everything," she said. "In reality, you're probably going to have to choose between things like a band or a DJ, big flower arrangements, or something smaller."

She continued, "If you don't define what you want to focus on from the beginning, it can become problematic down the road."

Personal approach is essential

"Remember that the most important thing for the guests is the drinks and dancing," the writer said.

"Don't make them uncomfortable and then everything else will be just a pleasant addition."

Planning should be collaborative

"Planning a wedding should be a partnership," Pous says.

"Ideally, you both have an opinion on what's right," she said. "It's part of the idea of planning your future together and one of the most important things you do as a couple at this stage of your relationship."

Take time to enjoy your engagement

"Take your time with wedding planning," Pous said.

"I always recommend waiting at least a week to just relax, drink champagne, and celebrate with friends," she said.

"My book is based on a 12-month planning schedule, but that doesn't mean you have to start doing it as soon as you get engaged," the expert explained.

"In fact, I recommend taking your time if you can because once you start planning, there will be a lot of talking about numbers in terms of people, money, and logistics, and then it can feel like you're losing the perspective of joy."

The most important thing in planning is the venue

"The venue should be the first thing you choose because there is always a lot of competition," she explained.

"Sometimes you go there with a date in mind and they say, "Oh, we're all booked up."

"The choice of venue determines a lot," Pous added, "the date, the vendors, the type of outfits, and the atmosphere. Personally, it was a very important moment. It was then that I realized that this is the first thing to do and that everything else depends on it."
