Top 10 Tips for Planning Your Wedding


Eek you're getting married! How exciting? Now the planning begins.


Wedding planning can be very overwhelming, so here are some tips for you:

  • Get a planner and a folder. Keep all of your leaflets and business cards. Make short lists of suppliers in your planner. Guest lists and start to gather a style for your wedding.
  • Get out to wedding fayres. Big national ones can be expensive and overwhelming but they do contain a huge selection of top notch suppliers. Balance this with some smaller fayres so you can look at smaller local businesses that can't afford to exhibit at the big shows. These are often at local venues. Gather cards and chase to suppliers. It's best to meet suppliers face to face.
  • Ask your friends who are married who they recommend and who to avoid. Look on forums and reviews to find out who is well recommended. Work of mouth is great but you may want to try a new suppliers so your wedding is different from others.
  • Online wedding directors list all your local suppliers. Many have reviews and links to their website. This can be great to get phone numbers to call or email for quotes.

  • Facebook group pages. If you get stuck ask for recommendations on a local wedding Facebook group loads of people will reply.



  • Use Pinterest and Instagram to gather style ideas and save images to boards. It's a great way to pick a hair or make-up style and show your artist your picture to recreate.
  • Read blogs online to find out what the latest trends are. Many wedding suppliers write blogs and show case their work. These are a great way to get an insight into what to expect and get inspiration.

  • Budget and save. Start as you mean to go on otherwise spending can get out of control. Ask suppliers to stagger your payments - most will. It can be difficult to pay everything at once.

  • Ask for help from your brides maids, ushers and family as a wedding is a big job. You don't have to do it alone. If everyone has a small job each, it can lighten the burden.

  • Get a wedding planner or ask if your venue delegates a planner to your day. It really helps to have a professional there all day making sure everything runs smoothly so you and your guests can enjoy the day with no stress.
