From budgets to bridesmaids, here are some top expert tips to help plan your perfect wedding…
So you’ve said yes to your dream partner, and now your thoughts have turned to wedding planning. Maybe you’ve been planning this in your head for years, and have a good idea of what you like or don’t like. Or maybe you’re totally new to wedding planning and wondering where to start? Wherever you’re at in your journey, we’ve got some brilliant tips to make your day go without a hitch.
1) Engagement ring shopping
Your partner might’ve popped the question with a ring, but if they haven’t then first things first is to pick your engagement ring. You could hit the shops in person, and go from shop to shop looking for the perfect ring. Or how about staying at home, popping some champagne and checking out rings online. Shesaidyes have an amazing amount of engagement rings to choose from, so you’re sure to find something you love. Then once you’ve picked you can book a table at your favourite restaurant and celebrate.
2) Set a budget
After the ring comes the serious stuff: money. Like it or not, your wedding will probably have a budget. It’s so easy to go overboard on spending on your day, so it’s best to decide upfront how much you can afford to spend, and then prioritise where you want to spend your money. If having the perfect big dress is your main thing, then make sure you allocate a decent chunk of the budget to that – researching how much dresses like your dream dress might be.
3) Bridesmaids and best men or women
Picking your people to stand by your side on the big day is another important step. Once you’ve chosen your team you’ll be able to call on them to help you with wedmin. It’s a good idea to have a spread of people who will each be able to handle a different job – you want someone reliable and organised to help you manage the big tasks, but maybe you have a different friend who is super fun and will get everyone on the dancefloor at your wedding.
4) Choose your wedding bands
Don’t forget to pick your wedding bands. They should complement your engagement ring as you usually wear these together. These beautiful moissanite wedding sets are designed to go together – we think this is a brilliant idea. One thing is for sure, you need to absolutely love it as you’re going to be wearing it for a long, long time.
5) Location, location, location
Wherever you choose to host your wedding will really set the tone for a whole day. A city wedding in a cool bar, or a countryside wedding in a barn – go for the location that’s going to reflect who you are, and that will give you the vibe you’re after for your day. And always make sure you and the venue team are on the same page – you’ll be working with them a lot, so it’s always good to get along really well.
6) Don’t forget to plan for the future
Weddings are so exciting, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the day and lose sight of the fact that you and your partner are going to be together forever. And while the focus is on the big day right now, it’s really nice to plan for the future too. And what better way to plan than to check out future anniversary gifts, such as these gorgeous anniversary rings for her. Another incredibly thoughtful and special piece of jewellery is something from the super selection of moissanite eternity rings. These are such thoughtful gifts – the perfect way to remember your big day together.
