Top Tips to Plan A Wedding

Planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting and memorable experiences of your life, but it can also be overwhelming if you’re not well-prepared. To make sure your special day runs smoothly, careful planning and organisation are essential.


We’ll share our top 4 tips (Not necessarily in this order!) to help you navigate the wedding planning process and create a day that you and your guests will cherish forever!


1.     Establish a Realistic Budget

One of the most crucial steps in planning a wedding is setting a realistic budget. Weddings can be expensive, and costs can quickly add up. Start by sitting down with your partner and discussing how much you’re willing to spend on your special day. Consider what aspects of the wedding are most important to you and allocate a larger portion of your budget to those areas. 


2.     Create a Detailed Timeline

A well-structured timeline will help you stay on track and ensure that you have enough time to plan each aspect of your wedding. Start by choosing a wedding date/month or time of year at least and working backward from there. Having a clear schedule will reduce stress and help you manage your tasks effectively.


3.     Choose Your Venue
