Tips for organising your wedding dayWrite a to do list

Planning a wedding isn’t easy, but with organization, time, focus and vision, you can plan the wedding of your dreams.

Start now. Even if the wedding is 3 years from now you can never be too organised! List all the things that you might need. After a while you will realise the ‘musts’, ‘might’s’ and ‘don’t needs’. Leave big spaces or do it through Microsoft Word so you can add new ideas all the time. One of the first things to take into consideration is the season you want your wedding in or if you’d prefer it abroad. If it’s hot you could have an outdoor ceremony in a gardens or keep it in a beautiful but warm church in the winter? Next, pick the exact date and location so you can work around it finding out how many guests you want present, which cars, Djs, photographers, caterers and other services will be available on your date. You can then spend time relaxing a bit more finding out what colour scheme you’d prefer, the wedding dress, groomsman’s outfits and also the bridesmaids. Start planning which décor you’d like at the ceremony, the flowers, menus, music, entertainment, invitations and all the nitty gritty that makes your wedding the day you’ve always planned in your mind. Remember, it will take time and money but its one day that cant be re-arranged, make the most of it and plan, plan, plan!
