He’s popped the question over the holidays. Now, one week into the New Year, the ‘newly engaged’ butterflies have calmed somewhat (or not!) and you’re waking up to the mammoth task of planning one of the most important days of your life. Unless you’ve had this day planned to perfection since you were a little girl – or no longer think Barbie and pink is the way to go – you’ll be seeking advice and inspiration to help plan the wedding of your dreams. Whether you are thinking of an informal intimate ceremony or a traditional church wedding complete with a party to end all parties, Bridalwave is here to help!
In a new series, Wedding 101: from proposal to honeymoon, I’ll be looking at everything you need to think about when planning your day. Unless you’ve decided to give a professional wedding planner free reigns (which I doubt), it could be that you’re currently finding yourself panicking over all the details that need to be arranged. Take a deep breath… and another one. Not everything needs, or will, be sorted immediately. This is a journey; perhaps the best time of your life as you wedding day is likely go past in a blur; so take time and enjoy the process of planning.
In the weeks and months to come, I’ll guide you through budgets, the etiquette of who to invite, finding the right venue, gowns and much more, helping you sift through the noise to find what’s right for you. I hope you find the guide useful, and Id love to hear from you so use the comment boxes or email me. Now let’s get planning!
