Wedding planning basics

Staying focused as you plan your big day will be much easier if you start off on the right foot. It’s easy to jump into planning when you’re newly engaged and oh-so excited but, if you can just take a little time to get organised at the start, everything will be much easier. So, here’s how to stay focused and be efficient as you start wedding planning:

Don’t get caught up in the details too soon. You don’t need to be hunting online for wedding favours before you’ve booked your venue! Focus on the important elements of your day first.

Discuss your budget and your priorities before you start booking suppliers. Nothing will distract you from your plans more than money worries.

Get organised. Whether you use an old-school planning folder or online tools, get organised early will really help. Keep all your wedding related correspondence and paperwork in one place.

Put important dates in your diary. Giving notice, payment dates or meetings with suppliers – note them all down as soon as you have them to save time and stress later one.

Super efficient wedding planning

One of the reasons why planning a wedding can be tough is that it comes on top of everything else we do in our lives. To keep focused and to stay in control, you need to be efficient with your time. Here’s how to do just that:

Set aside time for your wedding planning. Try to avoid doing little bits and pieces every day. It’s far better to allocate a block of time and get through everything that’s needed for the coming week in one go.

When you’re in wedding planning mode, remember this is your time to get things done and tick things of your list. You can browse Pinterest or check out your Insta feed later!

Don’t be afraid to put suppliers in touch with each other so they can confirm details directly rather than going through you every time they need to know something.

Work from one master list rather than trying to remember everything. It’s much easier to stay focused when you’ve got one list to refer too AND you can be sure that you won’t forget anything.

Keeping focused in the week before your wedding

However organised you’ve been, this is the time when everything needs to come together. It’s incredibly important to keep focused now so that you can totally relax on the big day. Don’t forget these things in the week before your wedding:

Compile one master schedule for the day. Note the times all your suppliers will be arriving and list who and what needs to be where and when! Distribute this to EVERYONE involved in the day.

Delegate if you need to. Check your master to-do list and be realistic with your time. If there’s more to do than you can handle, delegate the jobs that really don’t need you to do them.

Set aside time for yourself. It’s important to take some time out in the week before your wedding to focus on the big event itself. Step back from your plans and start to think about your wedding day.

Remember what’s really important. If something crops up in the week before your wedding or you suddenly realise that a little thing has been forgotten, let it go. Your guests won’t notice anything that’s missing and the only thing that really matters is that you and your partner get married and start the next chapter of your lives together.
