Getting engaged is so super exciting that you should really allow yourself to revel in the moment for as long as possible. Don’t be afraid to think big, bold and fabulous, you wedding day is a momentous event so have some fun planning it!
Use sites like Pinterest and Instagram to look at different ideas and allow your imagination to run wild!
Don’t rush into setting a date before you know what you really want from your wedding. If you find yourself drawn to images of beautiful winter weddings because there are lots of gorgeous lights and candles a July wedding may not be right for you – it doesn’t start getting dark in the UK until about 9pm and by that point your guests are likely to be inside enjoying the band rather than admiring the hundred or so twinkling candles you’ve placed outside!
Learn to prioritise. Giving yourself this dreamtime will allow you to think clearly about what you really want. If you love good food and wine invest in a great caterer and arrange a wine tasting. Flowers important to you? Find a florist that shares your passion and can create stunning designs.
If you’re using a wedding planner they will ensure that you have the very best wedding and will help you by creating mood boards and recommending the best possible suppliers.
If you choose to plan everything yourself, take time to really research your options and make sure your venue and suppliers fully understand your wedding day vision.
Have fun and enjoy!
