Your wedding is unique to you – your likes and quirks, personal preferences, budget, location and dreams. The most important advice I can give you is, never think you have to compete with anyone else’s wedding or what you see on Instagram and wedding blogs.
Getting married is about a lifetime journey – not just one special day
A wedding day is not about the flowers or the cake or the venue – it’s about celebrating that you found each other and fell in love. NOTHING is more important than that. So start your wedding planning journey by clearing the slate of ideas and inspiration. Before you overwhelm yourself with all the possibilities, just enjoy those first moments of being engaged without the stress of planning the wedding.
Don’t commit to anything too soon
What’s really important is that you don’t start making decisions too soon. Choices you make early on will have a knock on effect to other choices further down the line – and could prove costly. For instance, it’s a big mistake to invite every friend to be your bridesmaid before you’ve even decided what your wedding will look like. Just remember every bridesmaid could set you back at least a cool £250 so remember that before you let the excitement get the better of you. Don’t commit to anything before you have to. No matter when you want to tie the knot, the first few days of taking it slow will benefit you in the long run.
