It would be a fair observation to say that for somebody who works in a planning environment, planning our wedding has not been my favourite thing in the world to do. I literally have had no idea where to start.
1 – Thankfully in a wedding group on social media, somebody mentioned the Bridebook app, and Oh my god – It’s been an absolute lifesaver. From sorting our budget, to our guest list – to reminding me to get my invites sorted. I don’t know how we would have got this planned without this little treasure! Throughout the planning process the guest list has changed multiple times, Family fall outs, friends breakups – You don’t realise just how much it deviates from your original plan!
2 – Pintrest. The hours and hours I have lost on Pintrest looking for inspiration. Just type in the theme, or what you are after (rings, invites, dresses, hair and make-up. It’s all there!)
3. Amazon The things I have found on here that are super cheap for all of us DIY brides, you wouldn’t even believe. I think my Ring box was less than £3 including delivery. It really is worth a browse. Sometimes you may have to wait a little longer for delivery but it is extremely worth it.
4. Social Media. There are so many companies out there in the wedding industry offering all different types of products, and you find some will do competitions. I have won some smaller things, tote bags, a bride hoodie, a personalised hanger – but the best thing?! I won a free videographer!
So, There you have it, my BIG 4 for wedding planning. Enjoy planning your big day ladies
