Christmas Engagment?! Where do you start??

January 5, 2014

Congratulations on your engagement! Now let’s plan a wedding.

I’m guessing there were a few romantic gentlemen over the Christmas period with all the enquiries we received over the past two weeks from very organised brides! Have you just got engaged or just set the date! First things first, start with the big stuff! If you want your dream wedding to come true, you must plan properly and then book as many of your vendors as far in advance as possible. Leaving things until later may mean you miss out on using your favourite location or hair stylist!

I know, I know….you just want to run out and start trying on dresses, and of course that is on the to-do list, but first and foremost you need a budget! Once the budget is set start researching and then tick off the following items to ensure you’ve got all the major suppliers locked in and can start on the pretty and fun stuff like invitation styles, hens nights & dresses.

– Reception Venue
– Ceremony Site
– Photographer
– Celebrant
– Music
– Florist
– Hair/Makeup

With the big stuff out of the way you can start working on the finer details: Send out the save the date cards, start thinking about the guest list, band vs DJ, what is the colour theme etc etc. There are soooo many things to consider but with the big decisions made, you can relax a little and enjoy the process.

Happy Planning.
