So, It’s Time To Start Planning Your Wedding!

When you get engaged, and the fuzzy haze of excitement starts to pass, you soon realise that you have a wedding to plan. That might sound obvious to some, but when you think about the sheer amount of planning that goes into a wedding, it can all get a bit too much. But, you don’t have to let it. Before you find yourself drowning in wedding planning doubt, take a step back and prepare yourself. The planning process can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be. But, if you want to get yourself an easy to follow system or framework and know where to start, here are a few things to bear in mind

Pick A Theme
The first thing that you’re going to want to do is find yourself a suitable theme. Not everyone likes their wedding to fit within a set theme, but it sure can help with the planning process, as it gives you some structure. Over the years, many different wedding themes have come into fashion, but you can often use your style and taste to pick one that suits you the most.

Find A Location
Then, you’re going to want to find yourself a wedding venue. This is probably the most important step, as many other decisions will be based around it; like your date and decor. Some people like to book their venue first, then decide on everything else. But by doing it after you’ve chosen a theme, you can make sure you’ve chosen a place based on your style, rather than letting the location set the theme for you.

Decide How To Do It
Once you have decided on a venue, you’re going to want to work out exactly how you’re going to do the rest. Sometimes, you might find an event coordinator is there to help you and included in the price of the venue. But, if you are stuck for ideas and you have the budget, you might also want to hire a wedding planner. From there you can work out what other wedding hire pieces you might need, or whether the venue will supply them.

Choose A Dress
One of the most exciting parts of the wedding itself is choosing the dress. Regardless of your budget, or what you want to spend on it, you should always look to choose the wedding dress of your dreams. Although you’ll only wear it once, it’s memory will stay with you forever, so choose wisely and make sure it really is the style you’ve always dreamed of.

Home In
With a venue, some decor, and a dress, everything is starting to come together. Now, you need to home in on the finer details. Depending on your tastes and the style of your wedding, you may have everything from the flowers and table decorations, to the wedding favours and evening food to arrange. But you can find a lot of inspiration online to help you, so you don’t have to decide it all on your own.
