    Evening all. I'm marrying the love of my life on the 16th march 2019. I have already booked and starting to pay for the venue, got my wedding dress and most of the accessories. Looked at and booked transport ( horse and carriage ) sorted out colour schemes etc. Has any other 2019 brides started planning etc and have come across friends and family saying that your planning and paying for everything to early as I've had loads of people saying to me that I have done things to early and that the wedding is over 2yrs away. Even though this is second time around for me and h2b's first and hopefully only marriage I want everything to be perfect instead of a quickly arranged registry office and boozer afterwards ( like my first no offence to those that are having that type of wedding.) I've also had people say to me that it's wrong to have a female friend walk me down the aisle and that it should be one of my sons. The reason my sons are not is because they argued about it so my sons have agreed it should be my best friend who is like a sister to me has that honour. So they are walking the bridesmaids down the aisle.

    Hi Rachel
    Nope I dont think you are planning and booking too early. Im planning to get wed in 2020 and although I havent booked anything, I am definitly shopping around and making shortlists, I have even started making a playlist for the reception. There are no rules on how YOU plan YOUR wedding. You want to make sure you get the wedding you want, and booking early will gaurantee that.
    Keep us posted on your progress, will be interesting to find out how quickly and stress free you'll get things done :-D

    Hi Maria
    I've found planning early really easy and being able to spread the cost helpful. Luckily the venue price is good value considering I'm getting the honeymoon suite and 2 extra guest rooms, dj, flower centre pieces, chair covers etc all included in the price so all need to do now is get dresses etc for bridesmaid and my moh who's walking me down the aisle, groom and groomsmen outfits. Wedding favours are sorted as they are ferro Roche turned into golden snitches as we are having a Harry Potter themed wedding. I've done my own postbox with owl on top and have made a sorting hat, goblet and signpost for the top table and the signpost is for directing guests to the great hall ( wedding room ) hogsmead (bar) and hagrids hut ( outside where there is a seating area like a hut) . The venue is lending us lanterns to use. I have used a spreadsheet for keeping track of costs etc and amount saved each month. I should have main things paid for at least 9months before the wedding. Doing everything months in advance is helping keep my stress level down.

    Hi Maria luckily enough I knew where I wanted to get married and the hotel does package deals for weddings and we opted for the golden package which included a lot of things like chair covers, sashs and table planner and menus. But it was dearer than other hotels around it was a good deal for me lol and I'm able to pay instalments which was great. You can always ask venues if they use any events planners. Being in north Hampshire we have a company called 3v3nts 4 u that supply's a lot of hotels where we are. :-)

    Hello 2019 brides. How's everyone's planning going? We've booked our venue for 15/06/2019 and actually booked last May so getting excited that it's nearly in 'normal wedding planning' range! I've started DIY'ing! At least I have plenty of time to get crafty

    Hi Nadia, my wedding plans are all done now all I have to do nearer the time is bridesmaids dresses and accessories and the suits for the groom and groomsmen. I've also been lucky with a lot of things like transport and cake as they have been booked and I've not had to pay deposits due to planning in advance and I've requested that the companies I've booked with the actually write it in their diaries etc in pen and not pencil that way it can't be erased out and I've had booking confirmation from them. The venue has been brilliant that I've been paying in instalments since July last year so that the venue will be paid off come September next year a good 6months before the wedding date. The only thing I can't do at the moment until March next year is the booking the register as I can only book that a year in advance. Planning so far in advance has been quiet easy and hopefully I won't be so stressed nearer the time.

    Heyyy. I'm so excited, today I booked my wedding and registrar for 2019. We are not telling people until after Christmas but after a almost 3 year engagement with no wedding action (we were supposed to get married this year) I'm so excited to finally have it booked. Happy planning all ☺ x
