Welcome to my first blog!
I thought what should I write about ? Well you of course !
A Big Congratulations on your engagement and the announcement of your impending wedding it’s an exciting time, one to be enjoyed so lets have some fun !
Where do I begin to start planning my perfect day ?
Well after great deliberation I thought where should I start. I came up with the idea right at the very beginning when a couple become engaged, the things and the list they may need to compile and think about.
First of all allow plenty of time, give yourself a chance to enjoy what you are doing I recommend at least 14 – 15months.
Get yourself a good Bridal Diary these are great because it has lots places to help you stay organised, with where and when, time to enter what and who you have booked at the right time frames and keep a track of your spend/ budget and what needs to be done.
Get your partner involved and work on this together.
