Wedding Planning Made Easy – Our Top Tips

Where to start with wedding planning.

So, you’re getting married! This is the moment you’ve been dreaming of forever. Before you know it, you’ll be fully addicted to Pinterest and you’ll spend your Sunday afternoons tackling complicated spreadsheets of suppliers on excel. Even if you’re super excited to get started with planning, it’s likely that you also feel overwhelmed by your never-ending, ever-growing task list! Don’t worry though, here are some simple tips to help you with your planning!


Wedding Email

Nobody wants to be bombarded with emails from wedding suppliers and post-wedding marketing mail on their personal email. We highly recommend setting up a wedding email address, where you can keep all of your wedmin in one place. This is also a great point of contact for your guests and suppliers.


Wedding Fairs

Get your bridesmaids together for a day out at some wedding shows. This is fun and exciting way to indulge in all things weddings, meet lots of amazing suppliers, and get inspired for your big day! They’re a great place to get up to date with all the latest wedding trends.


Shop around

We recommend doing plenty of shopping around when it comes to your suppliers. Even if you fall in love with the first photographer you talk to, look around for different quotes and ideas before you pay a deposit. You don’t want to book a supplier impulsively and then regret your decision. A good way to browse wedding suppliers is using an online wedding directory where you can search for specific suppliers in your area.


Download Apps

If you’re a tech savvy bride then what better place to plan your wedding than on-the-go, using your phone or iPad? There are so many easy-to-use Apps which can provide you with helpful task lists to help kick start your planning. The Guides for Brides Wedding Planner is available online and as an App – a great place to manage your budget, suppliers, and guest list!


Remain calm and enjoy it.

Although the planning process can be stressful at times, make sure you relax and try to savour every moment of the buzz of getting married. Why not have some therapeutic fun on Pinterest or read some inspiring wedding blogs? This is one of the most important day of your life – from the planning to the day itself, enjoy every minute!
