At first sight the world of wedding & planning can seem like a glamorous one, with shows like 4 Weddings, Say yes to the dress, & Platinum weddings; I can see how. And lets face it who doesn’t draw inspiration from Instagram & Pinterest as you make plans for your big da. For most this is the first time you are stepping into this realm, so let me be the first to welcome you.
Wedding planning can seem overwhelming but with a little help & understanding where to start you can start your wedding planning journey the right way. Creating a wedding experience is no easy task on average it take 250 hours to plan a wedding. Not to include all of the moving parts, tiny details, & coordination of multiple vendors. And that’s just the cliff notes version of tasks. To make this process easier most couples spend any where from 12 to 18 months planning the details of this one night. This is where a wedding planner can come in, for most, you just don’t have that much time in your already busy schedule. To seek out the best vendors, while making sure you create a cohesive wedding experience and keep all the details organized is a easier task for professionals. For those couples that take pleasure in the creative chaos. It takes time to plan a wedding. You still need a planner to coordinate the day as you walk down the aisle.
There are a lot of details to keep organized, so having a wedding binder, a separate email address, and an online planning system like the knot, or the one we use with our couple. It allows you to take planning on the go if necessary.
Planning your wedding takes time and is all about the details in order to create a once in a lifetime experience, but how you start and the plan you create to execute this journey makes all the difference.
