The 10 best things about wedding planning
Planning your wedding is one of the most memorable experiences of your life! It will be filled with highs and lows, drama and delights, tears and laughter, but today, rather than focusing on the good, the bad and the ugly, we’ve settled on the good. Horrah! So grab a cuppa & check out the 10 best things about wedding planning.
The engagement reveal!
The engagement announcement has definitely become more of a show in recent years with couples looking for unique ways to reveal their news and we LOVE it! Following this comes that all-important engagement party which is really a warm up for the wedding and most couple’s first taste of what planning their wedding will be like, not to mention the perfect opportunity to soak up all that glory. We say, enjoy that hazy, romantic glow!
Late nights with your bridesmaids
It might sound like a chore but trust us, this one is fun! Wedding planning often requires rounding up the girls for bridal magazine sessions, assembling favours and getting hands on with wedding invites (applies especially to DIY brides). Have the wine at the ready and be happy knowing that you can count on your leading ladies to lend a helping hand!
Finding your dress
Definitely the highlight of most ladies’ wedding planning, finding the dress of your dreams is an emotional rollercoaster. There will be tears, despair and maybe even tantrums but all of that will be quickly forgotten when you find ‘the one’. Breathe a sigh of relief and feel happy in your decision.
Binging on bridal TV programmes
The guilty pleasure of many brides, there is no better time for binging on bridal TV shows than in the run up to your wedding, Where to start? Check out ‘Say Yes To The Dress’, ‘Bridezillas’ and ‘Don’t Tell The Bride.’ You can thank us later!
Cake, frosting, filling, icing… what’s not to love!? Grab your other half and get cake tasting. Many couples reveal this is high on their list of favourite wedding planning tasks and we can see why.
While we’re on the subject of cake tasting, bring on the wine! Finding the perfect wine for your toast, as well as accompaniment to your meal is the perfect opportunity to crack open several bottles with your other half.
No doubt you’ll want to look amazing on your wedding day which leads to a tonne of (justified) bridal appointments. From relaxing massages, to hair trials, skin plumping facials and mani/pedis, enjoy some downtime a week or two before the wedding. You deserve it!
Many girls spend just as much time daydreaming about the perfect pair of heels as they do about their wedding dress and we can’t blame them! Your wedding day is the time to pull out all the stops and find a show stopping pair of heels. You can really go to town here and find a pair which sets your heart a flutter. Go on!
Booking your honeymoon
Your honeymoon is your chance to go all out and kick off married life in style. Use this as the perfect distraction when you need a break from other wedding planning activities. When it comes to your destination, the sky is literally your limit. Dream big and spend the beginning of your married life together exactly as you both want!
Pinterest is a hive of activity when it comes to weddings and we say, don’t get married without it! It can literally be used for every aspect of wedding planning. Set up separate boards for dresses, hairstyles, make-up looks you like, bouquets, buttonholes and more. Get pinning and feel inspired!
