    SteStep 1 – Get Clued Up on Every Aspect of Your Nuptials

Getting married is a lifelong commitment, as well as a legally binding contract between the two of you. Thus, planning your perfect wedding day means getting clued up on everything.

There are many ways of doing this, including a wedding planning diploma that clearly sets out what needs to happen and when. You never know, you may enjoy planning your wedding so much, you decide to make a career out of wedding planning…

  1. SteStep 2 – Set the Date and Book the Venue

These three things happen simultaneously. If you have a firm venue in mind, you may have to change the wedding date to accommodate their availability. Or, you may have the date set and find a venue that fits with it.

  1. SteStep 3 – Choose a Theme (or Not)

Once you have the date and the venue booked, the next step is to decide on a theme. Not every couple as a theme, sticking with a traditional and formal setting to their wedding.

Other couples find that setting a theme is a way of pulling the strands of their wedding day together. There are all kinds of themes that work well for weddings, and the great thing is, there are no hard and fast rules.

What do you both like? What would you like included in your day? And, just as importantly, what don’t you like.

  1. SteStep 4 – The Invite List

As a couple, this is possibly your first foray into the diplomatic nightmare that is the ‘invite list’ and who should/ shouldn’t be invited to the ceremony and the evening reception, if this is how you are choosing to organize your day.

You can send out ‘save the date’ cards which is one way of announcing your engagement and letting people know the date of your marriage, but only do this once you have the venue booked.

Sending out invites and getting back RSVPs in good time is essential for organizing the catering. Give yourself plenty of time between the RSVP date and your wedding day so that you have time to discuss numbers and dietary needs with you caterer.

Top Tip – always ask for any special dietary requirements to be flagged up before the big day as discovering that aunt Ethel is in fact a gluten-free vegan five minutes before serving dinner is not the best time.

  1. SteStep 5 – The Wedding Attire

The wedding dress is possibly the second biggest purchase of the day, second only to the cost of hiring the venue and catering.

It needs to be the perfect fit. It takes time to find the right dress and for you to be comfortable in it all day, it needs to be altered to fit exactly.

And this means giving yourself plenty of time to find the right dress, followed by several fittings and alterations.

  1. SteStep 6 – Book the Wedding Photographer

Many brides and grooms are surprised at just how difficult it is to book a fantastic wedding photographer.

And this is because they are popular because they are so good. If you have a specific photographer in mind, book them early to avoid disappointment.

Step 7 – Cake, Centre Pieces, Favours etc.

Now that the big stuff is taken care of, you need to turn your attention to the smaller details of your big day.

There are practical things such as the cake, the table centre pieces and favours to take care of. There are also other practicalities:

  • Do guests need notifying of times and certain places they need to be?

  • Do you need to provide directions and maps?

  • Is there anything that guests need to be aware of?

  1. SteStep 8 – Remember to Look After Yourself

As you enter the final few months and weeks before the big day, the pace of the planning will start to increase.

You will find yourself pulled in all different directions. It can be stressful, and this can lead to anxiety, meltdowns, arguments and panic attacks.

You want to enjoy your day and this includes the excitement of the weeks and days as you hurtle towards your big day. Don’t forget to take time out for yourself, both as individuals and as a couple.

Eat well, get plenty of rest and sleep, and exercise too. And perhaps do something pleasant together, like a weekend away where ‘wedding talk’ is banned!

Your wedding day will be fantastic, especially if you take time, effort and patience in preparing for your big day.
