So you’ve just got engaged and you’re chomping at the bit to start planning your wedding. But, you have no idea what you need to do, or what order you need to do it. Here are a few tips that will hopefully make the process a bit easier for you!
When it comes to planning your wedding first thing is first – pick a date! This can be the hardest thing to achieve but it’s the first step in putting your big day together. Once you’ve got the date, then you need to start booking the following vendors all at once:
4.Hair and make-up
These are the top 5 vendors involved in a wedding so you need to get onto them straight away. We all book up months, if not years in advance. Some celebrants are already booking into 2017 so make sure you give yourself enough time to secure the people you really want.
The most common thing I hear from couples is “We didn’t realise we had to book so far in advance.” They then get stressed they can’t find people available for their date. So remember, if you snooze you lose!
After organising those top 5, the rest will fall into place. But, you still need to make sure you allocate yourself enough time for planning and budgeting. Other things to consider are:
1.Invitations/save the dates
5.Cake and cake toppers
7.Transport for bridal party
Of course, you don’t have to have a wedding where all of these vendors are involved, but there is a lot to coordinate so it’s best to give yourself as much time as possible.
You don’t want to miss out on having the people you really want involved in your special day so there’s no time to lose. Get onto organising things straight away and avoid disappointment! And feel free to let me know if you're needing a good celebrant!
