So, you’ve started planning your wedding?

Assuming you’ve at least set a date (or month) you might be wondering what comes next in planning for the big day. We’ve seen many brides in our time so you know we speak from experience when we say that these three things are ESSENTIAL to sort out as soon as possible.

Start Wedding Dress Shopping

Finding your perfect wedding dress is arguably one of the most important decisions to make when planning your wedding. Not only is it a great excuse to get together with your closest friends and family where you are the centre of attention and get to try on many fabulous dresses, it is also the chance to work out how a dress fits in with your budget and to see what dress alterations you’ll need to make.

At Fleur De Lys Bridal, our expert team aims to make your experience as special as possible, with our years of experience, award-winning VIP service, stunning designer collections, and RBA accreditation; you’ll be in safe hands from the moment you step through our doors. Our bridal consultants will guide you seamlessly through the process of selecting, trying on, and ultimately choosing the perfect dress for you, and will be on hand to suggest finishing touches such as tiaras, shoes, veils and more.

If you are at the start of your wedding dress journey, or even if you’ve found something you like elsewhere but need to see what else is on offer from other Bridal shops, why not book in for a 90 minute appointment.


Book Your Venue

If you’re like most brides, you’ll have imagined your wedding day over and over again, visualised the venue, the theme, and all the decorations. When you start planning your wedding, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find and book your perfect venue. However, the perfect venue is not just based on how it looks; it is more about how it will work logistically.  Many future decisions will rest on the suitability of your venue, so it pays to ask questions and make sure that whatever location you choose looks great, but is also adaptable to your desires.

Of course, booking your venue as early as possible also improves your chances of hiring the venue for your desired dates.

Plan Your Honeymoon

The weeks before your wedding will be a whirlwind, it’ll be both exhausting and exciting, so what you’ll need is a holiday (sorry… honeymoon) to relax and unwind. Whether you’re looking for sun, sea, and sunshine or something a little more adventurous, start planning it now because pretty soon you’ll be consumed by every detail of your wedding that the honeymoon might just pass you by!

The other reason to start planning and booking your honeymoon is that you want it to match up with your actual wedding day.
