I've heard a lot of talk about wedding planners, however my partner and I are unable to afford one in the budget and most of the planning has been left up to me (which I don't mind to much as I rather enjoy it). I'm terrified I will forget something and I know there is a to-do list on the tools but I don't even know where to start. 2 years will go very quickly and I'm sure there will be things I forget to plan or book. Any advice?
Attend wedding fairs, keep an eye on this site and you will get lots of ideas. Sift through them and pull out what appeals to you and make it your day. A good place to start is with a date and venue. Enjoy.
Hi I agree with Susan and make list tick things off as you do them it has worked for me :)
Hi I agree with Susan and make lists and tick them off as you go good luck it has worked for me :)
Thank you ladies I really appreciate you taking the time to comment back ❤️
Download an app called Bridebook. It's helped me a a lot, would have been lost without. It has everything you need and a guide as to when things need to be done. You can also keep a track of your budget as well x
Book shops have lots of wedding planning diaries, can pick them up for a couple of £. That will remind you of what you need to do on a regular basis, also a nice memory keepsake. Best of luck
It's just a party - don't stress too much. As long as registrar/ church is sorted and you're providing some kind of food so people don't starve, the rest is optional x
I downloaded Wedding Wire and it's been really helpful, especially so with guest list/table plans. Good luck and whatever way you do it...enjoy! x
Bridebook has been really useful as well as creating loads of spread sheets for me. I also joined a Facebook group called the emboldened bride which has resources and great advice
Have a look online at different wedding planners and see what's included in them. They you can make one based on that
I bought a wedding planner from paperchase and it's got everything in it! I've got 3 years to go but its so useful to see everything you need to think off. Would highly recommend 😍
I follow a couple of wedding planners on Instagram and they have their own blogs with helpful tips.. also I agree with the above comments, Bridebook is a great tool
Mine has been absolutely useless so don’t worry! X
Try Bridebook app online. It’s free
Download something like Bridebook, it helps you with every step!! good luck and enjoy it!!
If you forget something then it can't be that important. Just do what you want and place your priorities and it'll all flow. You'll be playing it through your head so many times it'll all be great. I'm doing my own too, it's great fun, we're lucky the internet is a thing lol x
I've not got a wedding planner either we started with the guest list and budget and went from there... once you have a venue everything else seems to fall into place... and don't overthink anything
Wing it !!! Thats what im doing i have a wedding planner book and i bought a table layout planner as well
Iv been planning two years we are lucky as we run a pub with a function room enclosed beer garden and kids park so we can do what we want to venue so we have bought everything chair covers table cloths the list goes on pubs shut for day and all my planning is on bits of paper lol don’t stress cause if you miss anything there’s only you that no’s in my opinion my only stress was seamstress did my wedding dress but told me last week she couldn’t alter bridesmaids dresses she didn’t have time but a lovely lady’s stepped in and doing them now and we get married next week it’s yours and your h2b day so do it how you want to and don’t let anyone but in good look x
Bridebook App is excellent. Will give you list month by month if what needs doing. It's got a checklist so you know where you are and if you missed anything x
Use an online planner such as Bridal book x
To do lists
Take your time and enjoy it
A few people have said it already but Bridebook, Bridebook, Bridebook!! It's absolutely fab. Gives you a standard checklist that you can add to or delete from if you need to. It's also good for Guestlist planning and budget planning. But I mostly use it for the checklist.
Thank you everyone. Will definitely download bride book. I really appreciate all the advice XX ❤️
As long as you have a venue, something to wear, remember to send the invites and have some food and drink, the rest is just extras xx
Lists are good! Wedding fairs are brilliant too for getting ideas. if you like spreadsheets excel can be good for keeping track of things too.
