5 Things to Get Your Wedding Plans Off to a Flying Start


With the world being at a bit of a standstill recently, there are probably a lot of postponed wedding arrangements. All that means is, you get even more time to plan for your dream wedding. With the overwhelming task looming over you, your mind is likely flooded with thousands of things you need to get done before the big day. If this sounds familiar, take a deep breath and feast your eyes on 5 things you need to do to get your wedding plans off to a flying start.

Location, Location, Location

You’ve probably had a vision for your wedding since you were a little girl. The time has finally come and you need to search for the perfect setting for your day. As all eyes are on you, you need a beautiful scene to complement you. With elegance and high-end furnishings in mind, somewhere like Flora the Venue will set your inspiration on fire - whether you’re looking for a grand ceremony or a small registry day, they will help you out.

Who’s Making the Cut?

Set some time aside and deliberate with your hubby about who you want to see your wedding. Whether you want a whole family and friend shindig or a small intimate ceremony, come up with a rough estimate on the size of your wedding - this will make life a lot easier down the line.

Crunching the Numbers

In an attempt not to burst anyone’s bubble, it’s all well and good having dreamt up the perfect day, but you have to be able to afford it. Luckily, though, one silver lining of the ongoing pandemic is that there’s not been a lot open to spend your hard-earned cash on - so all that money spent not hitting the town every weekend can be put away towards your big day. Once you have your budget, you can let loose and start locking things in.

Snap, Snap!

Now that you have your budget and location, you can start the long hunt for someone to capture your day. The reason to include this within your first steps is that wedding photographers get very busy, often being booked up to a year in advance - so don’t let yourself be caught out and stuck with your uncle’s thumb overshadowing all your pictures.

Time to Get Dressed Up

At long last, it’s time to get your bridesmaids together and head out for some quality time shopping. Choosing your wedding dress will be both stressful and exciting, so don’t rush to the first one you try on - be a bit of bridezilla and demand your way to your dream dress.

There we have it, what once seemed like a frazzling and daunting experience can be the fun time that it should be. Yes, there will be times when things don’t go your way and you just feel like bursting into tears, but trust us, it will be so worth it when your big day comes around and you’re getting ready to walk down the aisle and into the arms of your soulmate.
