Unsure How to Delegate Your Wedding Tasks? Here’s How to Do It

Weddings are a huge milestone for anyone, and it’s understandable if you feel the need to be fully-involved or in control of every single thing. Letting someone else handle things might be easier said than done. However, you really wouldn’t want to be stuck with a growing list of things to take off that checklist. After all, weddings are a truly special occasion, and with or without a wedding planner, it is hardly ever a walk in the park. We understand that you might not be used to delegating or know how to start, so we’ve provided you with some tips that you can apply immediately right down below:

Put Your Tasks in Order 

Even if you were the most hands on and the most efficient person you know, it’s still not a good idea to do everything on your own when it comes to preparing for your wedding. First, you should discuss matters with your partner in order to decide on tasks that you would prefer not to delegate. For example, if you’re more particular about the type of food that will be served during your wedding reception, you should definitely handle that on your own. 
Otherwise, for tasks that you feel more comfortable letting someone else take on, you should definitely rope in family members and friends to help out. Their role isn’t so much to do everything for you, but rather to research, liaise, and shortlist options for you to choose from and to make a final decision on.

Hire a Professional Wedding Planner

Wedding planners or coordinators don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, for the amount of time and money you’ll be investing if you were to do it all on your own, it probably makes more sense to let the experts handle the process for you. With them on your side, they’ll be able to help you efficiently organize and plan all your wedding tasks in order to make the best use of the resources on hand. 
They’re also there to help you with those annoying tasks that take forever to accomplish, like chasing vendors, creating call sheets, and following up with everyone else that is involved before the big day. You will be paying them for their expertise, and they’ll be providing you with their knowledge and experience and their personal list of vendors that they trust to work with regularly.

Think About Your Friends’ Strengths 

Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. Instead of attempting to do something you’re not familiar with, why not let someone else who is better at it handle the task? For example, if you have no clue what type of wedding theme would be suitable, it’ll be good to delegate that task to family members or friends who have a better idea. 
Rather than spend your time and efforts trying to figure out what works best for you, this is the best way to keep others in the loop and feel included. The other obvious benefit is when you’re also able to leverage on their strengths to create the best wedding for you. Having good helpers on hand can really make all the difference.

Organize a Brainstorming Session With Your Friends 

Rather than take on the gigantic task of planning and organizing an entire wedding by yourself, why not start a brainstorming session with people whose opinions you trust? After all, it’s a great way to be inspired and also learn about the different possibilities out there that you can integrate into your special occasion. 
Round up a small group of people (that you trust!) and just start throwing ideas and options around. Once you’ve pinpointed a few avenues worth pursuing, you can then proceed to delegate tasks to the right people. Just remember to stay focused during your brainstorming session and you’re bound to come up with some wonderful ideas.

Trust the Persons Involved 

If you are unfamiliar with letting go of the reins when it comes to trusting others with wedding planning tasks, now is the time to start. Imagine if you were given the responsibility to handle something, but the assigner is constantly looking over your shoulder and asking you if everything is alright. 
Although you can understand that they are concerned, they can end up making others feel resentful and will instead lead to unwillingness to help out in the future. By delegating, your role has now changed to a supervisory one. Instead of leading the charge, this will now free up your time to do the things which you prefer to do and to allow others to help to the best of their abilities.

Count on Specialists 

Help is all around, and when it comes to online tools and services, you’ll be surprised at just how many affordable options there are out there. You might not have any clue at all how to use Photoshop or any other software to design your wedding invitations, but services providing expert help can easily help you accomplish your tasks. Likewise, if you have no clue on how to best plan and manage the transportation for your wedding day, it’s good to have professional help working with you from start till end.
