Planning your wedding can be a stressful time and one that takes up a lot of time. Here are my tips for planning your wedding:
- Set your budget and stick to it
This is one of the most important things that you should do first when starting your wedding planning journey. If you don’t set a budget, things can soon get out of control.
- Pick and ideal timeframe
Set yourself a timeframe from the moment you start planning your wedding up until the day itself. In that time, set goals of when things need to be completed by, and stick to it. This will make things a lot more stress free for you.
- Create a list of priorities
What is important to you when it comes to your wedding day? Decide on this an organise these parts of your wedding first
- Find inspiration and create a vision board
Doing this will help you plan your own wedding a lot easier. Decide on what style you want to go for with your wedding and build up your inspiration from this.
- Work together with your Partner
Remember, it’s not just your special day. Talk to your other half to find out what they want for your day. Marriage is all about teamwork, so what better place to start.
- Limit your options
With Pinterest and Instagram, there are so many ideas out there, it’s easy to get carried away. Make sure that you stay focussed on the style of wedding you want to create.
This is something that you need to do from the start, at the same time as setting your budget. Have a wedding planning file and make sure that you keep all paperwork together. If spreadsheets work well for you, set some up.
Create a master checklist
This should include details of all your Suppliers, how much you are paying them, what deposit you have paid, what balance is due and when it needs to be paid by. That way nothing will get overlooked.
- Don’t rush into decisions
Remember, your wedding day is the biggest day of your life. You want it to be just perfect. If you are not sure about something, take some time to decide whether it is really for you.
- Hire a Wedding Planner!
A Wedding Planner can take a lot of stress away from you. Even if you want to plan the main part of your wedding yourself, consider hiring an On the Day Coordinator. Couples that hire me at LMS Weddings can be assured of guidance and advise towards their wedding planning. I can also recommend Suppliers that are reputable and reliable.
