According to study (quoted from Brides.com), 40% of couples categorized wedding planning as “extremely stressful” while 71% thought it was more nerve-wracking than other major life events like finding a new job. It's a universal truth that wedding planning is stressful, with endless to do list, from the venue to décor to the dress and every single detail in between. However, there are things that your guests don’t really care about! which you may want to consider reducing your time and effort on it.
1. Wedding Invitations Materials
Wedding invitations is the very first introduction and impression to your wedding, a gorgeous invitation But big chance is, be judging your choice of paper stock, paper thickness or ornamentation, as long as it is beautifully designed and matched with your wedding concept.

2. Fresh Flowers
Florals arrangements are an important elements in your wedding, bringing decorative purpose to wedding venue and illustrating the wedding concept, but guests won’t probably notice what types of flowers you will be using, whether it is real or artificial.
Guests will appreciate the thoughtful, fragrant flourishes which type of flower it is. Unless you have a certain designer blooms that you like very much, else local market selections are going to be as equally striking and lower costs than those imported blooms.
3. Table Linens
As long as the table clothes clean and tidy, it will be just fine. Specialty linens can get costly and not to mention if you are to buy or rent for each guest table (imagine if you will be having 30 to 50 guest tables), and most probably it will be only one-time use. Most venue packages already come with linen included, usually in white, or in a colour that suits the venue’s décor, save yourself the money by choosing something simple and functional that blends seamlessly décor.

4. Bouquet Toss
Bouquet toss has always be one of the ‘must’ in wedding, but recently we are observing many brides opting to skip it altogether. To the question of whether to have bouquet toss, it will be depending of how many single ladies that you will be invited, and whether they do enjoy to ‘catch’ the bouquet or shy away from it. How about preserving your bouquet instead? There are so many surprising ways to do it actually (shall share with you the next time!)

There were feedback received from guests: ‘it every wedding I , I got favour’. It’s okay to skip wedding favours. If you are to spend on wedding favours, we recommend something practical and special. You can also refer to our video on how to plan a low waste & minimalist wedding, which we mentioned also some of the recommended wedding favour options. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lY7jXAu4eI&t=48s
