1. Get yourself a good Wedding Planner
A wedding planner is a great way to keep all your notes and ideas together whilst also doubling up as a cute little keepsake to look back on.

2. One thing at a time
For a lot of Brides and Grooms they have never planned a wedding before so it can be difficult to know where to start. To Do Lists are your best friend throughout this journey! Set aside a day where you get together with your partner or Bridal Party and decide what you will tackle that day, whether it be to find a Hair
and Makeup Artist or decide on what centerpieces you would like once you’ve started ticking things off your list it become so much easier. It might also be helpful to keep a notepad by the side of your bed so if you can’t sleep and ideas are running riot you can make sure they don’t get forgotten by the morning!
3. Take time for you
During the wedding planning period it can start to consume any healthy relationship, whether that be between you and your partner or with family and friends. So on the days that you haven’t set aside for wedding planning try and keep the wedding talk to a minimum and take some time for yourself. Whether that be to exercise, meditate or partake in your favourite hobby. The same can also be said for you both as a couple too, make sure you are going on regular date nights so you can really enjoy each others company and your engagement.
4. Join online wedding communities
It’s important to remember that you’re not the only couple who are planning a wedding or have ever planned a wedding in the past, so you are not alone! Joining Facebook Groups are a great way to chat with other Brides and Grooms going through the same stresses as you. You will also notice that people are asking the same questions as you, so you can get all the answers and find some amazing local suppliers along the way. Don’t suffer in silence, head over to https://www.facebook.com/groups/weddinginspirationandideasuk and ask away!
5. Don’t forget it’s your wedding!
Sometimes it can be easier said than done but don’t forget that it is your wedding, no one elses. Asking for peoples opinions on your wedding can then be a slippery slope into people telling you what you should do. It’s impossible to please everyone so make sure you take a step back from it all to regroup and remember what is important to you and your partner.
