Congratulations if you recently got engaged! I hope you are on cloud nine and excited about planning your wedding day! But where to start? You need a venue for both ceremony and reception, a caterer to feed everyone, a band, a photographer, a florist, daytime music and entertainment, stationery designer for your save the dates and invitations, table place settings, favours, ceremony programs, and that's just off the top of my head. There are things to organise with each individual supplier, schedules and designs to confirm, and budgets to finalise. With so much to sort out it can get quite overwhelming.
I've put together 5 links I came across on wedding blogs, which I found most helpful to newly engaged couples.
- Bridal Musings blog has got by far the most extensive wedding planning section with 'Step by Step Wedding Planing Guide', expert tips and advice, and a free downloadable Wedding Budget Spreadsheet (along with budget tips).
- One Fab Day published a brilliant Wedding Checklist to help you keep on track with everything throughout the year before your wedding day. If you are always on the go and keeping busy, check out their list of Essential Wedding Apps. Amongst others it includes Top Table Planner to make designing your seating plan hassle free.
- Pinterest - for inspiration on the look and feel of your wedding day, ideas for personal touches, make-up and hair, flowers, dresses and what not! You can gather everything you like in one place online which is very handy. You can share boards you create with your suppliers to help them bring your vision to life. Follow my Wedding Styling Ideas and Wedding Flowers boards to start with.
So, there you go! I hope you will find information above helpful! Happy planning ;)
