    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

    August 2019 here!

    We've been together since May 2009 and h2b proposed January 2010.

    We're now in the position to start planning our wedding and thought it would be nice to do it for our 10 year anniversary :)

    We haven't set an exact date yet but we've been discussing it this weekend.

    We're in our mid 40's and both been married before, and are happy to have a registry office ceremony.

    Hope all your planning is going well.

    Morning!!

    I get married 7th September 2019!
    CANT WAIT!!!!!

    We got engaged in December just gone... i have already booked the hotel, booked the church, sorted a photographer (family friend) and paid despoit for my hair and make up (important stuff first obvs)

    Been to see a florist the other week, I am having artificial flowers (so i can keep them) she is going to do some mock up's of boquets for me to go back in and look at. My sister in law went to the same shop so I know they are good!

    Not been to try dresses on yet as i really want to loose weight first, suppose i have a while but dying to try some on!!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm getting married late 2019! We haven't chosen a date yet but we know it's going to be late Autumn.
    I thought I was really early trying on dresses this past week but the shop consultants all said they prefer it when brides come in at least a year before their wedding to buy their dress! They made me feel like a princess :)
    We've been to look at some venues too. There's so much to do!

    Alyssia :)

    How's everyone's planning coming on?

    We've visited 3 venue's so far.

    I think we've decided on one and we've decided to go for a Friday as cheaper than Saturday!

    Initially we were thinking registry office but now considering having the ceremony at the venue too.

    I'm saving my half of the budget but H2B has got his already, he got a nice bonus at Christmas.

    Nothing booked yet!

    We're going for a second viewing of one of the venue's in a couple of weeks, we've requested a different person to the one we saw last time as we just wasn't happy with her.

    I think we'll also be in the position to decide on a date at the second viewing.

    We've started buying bits and bobs that we can put away, not coming out of the budget so that we can spend more on the ceremony & venue.

    I haven't decided what kind of dress I want, I think that's the next thing I want to get sorted.

    How's everyone else doing?

    Still not booked a date anywhere!

    But I do have a dress, an ankle length tea dress in white.

    I'm currently looking for some blue shoes which is proving more difficult than expected! I don't want navy or bright blue, I think something in between powder blue and mid blue is what I'm after, also looking at white shoes in case I can't find any blue ones.

    How's everyone else getting on?
