Top Tips For Planning A Wedding
Updated: Jan 22
We all know that planning a wedding can be hard work, but until you start to plan your own wedding you probably won’t realise just how much goes into making your big day perfect.
If you recently got engaged - maybe your partner popped the question over the festive period? - you’ll suddenly find you’re being asked a lot of questions and that you have a lot of decisions to make.
But don’t worry, Vogue has gone out and asked some of the top wedding planners to give their essential tips for couples who are just getting started on their wedding planning process.
Anna McGregor, a wedding planner at Lamp Productions, says it’s best to think about what’s important to you and to create a wedding that suits your personality. “Follow traditions that are meaningful for you but don’t get overwhelmed by them,” she said.
Along more practical lines, Hamish Shepherd from Bridebook urged couples to work out a budget before doing any planning. It can be easy to overspend when you’re getting married, so make sure you know your financial limits and stick to them.
You should also make sure that you book your wedding photographer in Kent, or wherever you’re based, as soon as possible. As the magazine pointed out, popular wedding photographers can be booked up years in advance, so if you find one you love don’t hesitate to hire them.
Hitched has a really useful step-by-step guide to planning a wedding. At the top of this list is setting your budget. The second thing you should do (before you book anything) is gather lots of wedding inspiration.
Pinterest is a great place to go for ideas on everything from venue decor to outfits and cakes.
