The guest list, the save the dates, the invites, the dress, the bridesmaid dresses, the table centrepieces… where does it start and where does it end?! It sounds like you need some wedding planning tips! Wedding planning isn’t the easiest task, but if there’s one thing we know, it’s that it’s not something that you should panic over; it’s something you should enjoy and have fun with! It’s the first steps to the one of the happiest days of your life, so we want to help you get to the aisle completely stress free which is why we’ve collated our top wedding planning tips and have shared them with you below.
Give Yourself Time
As we mentioned earlier, wedding planning should be something you enjoy. Your wedding day does not, and should not, need to be rushed! Give yourself time to plan your big day, and take it one step at a time. Don’t just give yourself a few months to plan; your future spouse isn’t likely to change their mind, so give yourself as long as you need to make it the most perfect day.
If we had to just pick one out of our wedding planning tips, it’d be to stay organised! Make yourself a checklist of everything you need to do and get for your wedding and work your way through the list bit by bit to ensure you don’t miss anything. Get a ring binder to keep everything related to your wedding together, or download an app like WeddingHappy.
Grab the Mags & Go to Wedding Fairs
Inspiration is exactly what you need when planning a wedding! Grab a few wedding magazines and mark the pages with things you like, whether it’s a dress, flowers, table centrepieces or accessories. See if there’s any local wedding fairs on near you and get a few friends together to go with you for a day out.
Know Your Guests
The last thing you need on your big day is your guests stressing over food! When you send your invites out, ask for them to RSVP with any dietary requirements such as allergies, dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian or vegan. If you know that your guests are going to bring children, double check what food they will eat too.
Don’t Stress Over The Dress
The final of our wedding tips is all about the dress! If there’s anything we don’t want you stressing over for your big day it’s your dress. Have an idea in your head of the kind of style and colour you want and what your ideal budget is. Research your local bridal shops or see if there’s any bridal shops you’d want to travel to and book an appointment. At Icon Bridal, we pride ourselves in helping lovely ladies find their perfect dress!
