Since we got engaged at the beginning of June we have been full steam ahead with our wedding planning. This isn’t because I have turned into some sort of crazy bridezilla, it’s because we wanted to get married next summer and available dates are already very few and far between.
I think it’s going pretty well so far, I think, but then again neither of us have planned a wedding before so we have nothing to compare this to. I say ‘pretty well’ as there have already been some minor bumps but they are all learning curves. Hence why I thought I’d share them with you all.
Be ruthless with your guest list!
One of the first things we did when we started planning our wedding was we created a spreadsheet of who we wanted to invite. We thought we’d have a fairly small wedding but as the list grew, it soon became apparent that this wasn’t possible. The list still isn’t finished but we now as ourselves the following questions: when did we last see them? Are they a true friend, e.g. do they get in touch to see how we are or because they want something? Were we invited to their wedding?
Don’t over-worry about the weather
You can’t please everyone
Be organised and embrace your inner geek
Now we have our venue booked the rest should be a breeze… or there will be another lessons learned blog post coming very soon.
