Source a Free Wedding Planning Guide
There are some brilliant free resources on the Internet which will help you plan your wedding with a month by month breakdown of what you should book when. It’s important to remember that it’s only a guide so try not to worry if you don’t do things exactly like it says.
Don’t Underestimate Your Budget
The biggest stress when planning a wedding is more than likely going to be the cost. When you are planning your own wedding don’t forget time to properly plan through your budget as well. This is always best done together so you both know exactly where you stand with the budget. It’s always handy to over estimate your budget so that you don’t end up falling short. Plus, when you over estimate what things will cost you may end up with some left over to spend on an amazing honeymoon.
Get To Know Your Venue
In the build up to the wedding day it’s important to get to know your venue. By visiting the venue as often as you can (or keeping in contact virtually) with the team members means you will have built up a good relationship with them. By staying over, if able to, or visiting the restaurant will help make you feel more relaxed knowing the team have everything in hand when your wedding day comes around.
Remember It’s Your Big Day
It’s so easy to fall into the trap of trying to please everyone on your wedding day. Although a wedding day is quite often family affair, it’s you & your partner that should be making the choices. Of course you are going to want recommendations & advice from family members but don’t be afraid to do it your own way. Make it count so that you know you've had the day that you really want no matter how big or small.
Sort Out The Priorities
Wedding planning can be very overwhelming as there’s a wealth of information & decisions to make. Prioritise the things that are most important to you and go from there. You may be foodies that want the best caterers, you may want an amazing band first and foremost - make a list of the most important things and allocate budget from there.
