Your life suddenly became a huge whirring blur; that moment replays in your head a million times a second as you try to focus at work. The love of your life actually wants to marry you and of course you said yes! It’s all getting so real and you want to start planning your big day. Okay, so it only happened last night but there are already SO many things to think about right? Your dreams are coming true and you finally get to be that blushing bride who has the perfect wedding day. Now, there are a lot of things that you need to discuss with your fiance first, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning right now. From your guest lists to your venue you now have the biggest task to focus on and you couldn’t be more excited. Here are a handful of wedding elements that you could nail today!
Guest List Love
As soon as you said yes, you immediately started thinking about who you would invite to your big day. Even if you want to extend an invite to every single person you know, but wedding invites are so personal and important, they have to go to the right people. Be selective with your guest list and ask yourself if they are truly your close friends. People who crawl out of the woodwork and start fishing for an invite to your wedding should be an automatic no. Not only do you need to choose your style, design and lettering on your invites, but you should also refine the receivers too!
Pinterest is the perfect place to start gathering ideas for your dream wedding. You can pull together all of the tiny concepts in your mind and create a full-blown wedding theme that will work for you and your partner. Pinterest is free to join (if you haven’t already got an account!) and you can gain inspiration from a variety of different places.
Choosing your ideal colour scheme is one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding. You have probably had ideas in your mind for a long time, but your favourite colour might not work as a wedding theme. Try and avoid super brash and bright shades that will detract from the pureness of your white dress. Muted pastel shades always look beautiful against flower bouquets so think about what kind of palettes appeal to you.
Don’t rush to finish all of your wedding tasks in a hurry, try to enjoy every minute of being the bride to be! Your special day will be over in the blink of an eye, so take your time to relax, enjoy and soak in all of the magic around you.Click To Tweet
Cake Tasting Fun
What could possibly be more exciting than heading on a cake tasting adventure on your lunch break at work? Book yourself into a local bakery and sample their array of flavours; from light lemon drizzle to decadent red velvet, this will definitely be one of the most enjoyable tasks on your to do list!
The Perfect Place
The wedding venue is something you can start researching right away, but you will need to book in some visits in order to find the one you love. Choosing the perfect wedding venue can take a lot longer than you would anticipate, but as soon as you walk through the door you will know if it’s the one for you or not.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Shopping for your wedding dress isn’t actually as time-consuming as you might imagine. Yes, you want to get your friends and family involved in the process, but there is nothing stopping you from heading to a local bridal store and trying on a couple of different wedding dresses. Sometimes it’s best to go on a solo shopping trip so that you can discover what type of style you like, before everybody else comes along.
Relax and Enjoy
Don’t rush to finish all of your wedding prep tasks in a hurry, try to enjoy every minute of being the bride to be! Your special day will be over in the blink of an eye, so take your time to relax, enjoy and soak in all of the magic around you.
You have never been so over the moon about your future before; you have always dreamt of being a beautiful bride and finally you get to turn it into a reality. Although you want to rush ahead and make a tonne of decisions straight away, make sure you consult your other half too. Get together and make it a fun activity for you both to enjoy as a couple. Of course you should get the final say in the super important decisions like colour schemes, invitations and dresses (!), but make the most of planning your special day together, because it’s the only time you will get to do it.
