Plan, plan, plan. We are sure you’ve heard this over and over again from the moment you said ‘yes’ and wedding planning brings a stress unlike anything else before. However, as one of the biggest moments of anyone’s lives, this shouldn’t overshadow the amazing process and ending you’ve been dreaming of for a lifetime.

What can be a challenging few months or years in the pipeline, all comes down to one fantastic day, and we love it. Understanding the little aspects that go into finding a bride their dream dress is our job, but we also want to help you out with the other areas of planning your wedding. So, take a read of these wedding hacks to make your wedding process a little easier.

Create a wedding email
To stop yourself from missing any essential wedding emails, create an account specifically for all things wedding, and give this email out to all your vendors.

Make a checklist
Keep track of everything! To do this, make an extensive list of to-dos and add check marks for things that are completed.

Consider a park venue
Save yourself some money and look for a pretty park that is tucked away and stunning all year round.

Attend bridal shows
Wedding shows are one of the best places to find out more about what you want, while locating the best deal around with local vendors.

Re-use wedding décor
Websites like ‘Sell My Wedding’  have loads of pre-loved decorating options at a fraction of the retail price.

Invest in a glue stick
Save yourself the torture of licking all your invitation envelopes and use a glue stick.

Prep your photographer
Not all photographers offer the same thing, so consider making a Pinterest board of wedding poses you like and share it with them, so they have an idea of what you want.

Meet your DJ
Making sure you’re on the same page as your DJ is vital. Simply give them a list of songs you would like to hear, and make sure the DJ is up for taking requests on the night.

Have a wedding rehearsal
Not everyone takes part in this, but it does allow for you to learn how and when to walk down the aisle, as well as whether the venue has any restrictions on photography, bare arms or even decorations.

Hopefully, these ideas will help you in the planning of your wedding, but, if you need any dress related ideas or tips, call one of the Fleur de Lys Bridal team on 01799 526982.
