Happy Sunday everyone. As we ring in the New Year many people will be getting engaged. The words “wedding planning” can be scary and overwhelming to the average newly engaged couple. With the right team of wedding professionals on your side, planning your wedding can be a enjoyable and stress free. To begin with, I suggest you invest in a wedding binder and notebook, this way you will be able to keep all of your wedding receipts, ideas, and anything related to your wedding together. I found a neat online checklist for wedding planning, https://www.realsimple.com/weddings/weddings-planning/wedding-planning-checklist .The first thing you will need to establish is your wedding budget. You must know what you can afford and what you are willing to spend. You must do this before you start any other step. Second, hire a wedding planner if your budget will allow. Wedding planner’s are experts in the field and can really help you where your family might not be able. Most wedding planners know who is who in the wedding industry. They can help book your venue, DJ, florist, photographer (Which is very important to add a little extra for a good photographer, so they are able to capture every magical moment), and caterer. Picking your wedding party is very important! They will be with you through your whole wedding process. Finally, say ” Yes to the dress or tuxedo”! Pick out your wedding parties attire, so that they match the theme/look you are going for. Cake tasting. Mmm.. red velvet with decadent cream cheese frosting your options are endless! Don’t forget to book your officant for the big day. I could go on for days about what you need to make sure your big day is special, but honestly if you just hire a wedding planner you wont have to worry about any of the details. All you will be required to do with the right wedding professionals is say ” I DO” . Stay tuned into Maggie Lace post for helpful hints and topic’s for the big day!
