Planning Your Wedding

How wonderful! He’s popped the question and you’re engaged to be married!

Congratulations as you take your first steps into your happy future together.

You’re going to be busy over the next few months but don’t panic. There are masses of wedding planning tools out there to help you through every step of the way. If you decide to use a professional wedding planner that’s fine but if you’ve got some time, then plan your wedding yourself and make it a day that’s very personal to you.

The most important thing to do before you start is to set a realistic budget. Work out with your fiancé exactly what you can afford, find out if your parents are happy to contribute and go from there. You really don’t want to start off on married life together with credit card debts and a huge loan to pay for your wedding – family and friends come to your wedding because they love you and want to share your special day with you, not because they want to be impressed.

I just spotted these heart decorations which are easy to DIY and would be perfect for decorating your wedding venue.


Inexpensive and simple to make, they’d look really effective hanging from trees, door frames, archways … anywhere you wanted to pretty up.


You’ll find full instructions and more images on the excellent How About Orange blog which has plenty of other DIY ideas you might like to try.


Have a look at the other DIY wedding ideas we’ve featured.  Here’s how to make a simple table centrepiece - or how about making paper flowers to decorate your place settings?

    Wow, totally love those – how cute! They’d look really sweet in a venue draped with pink and white fabric. I’ve come across who sell a whole range of inexpensive fabrics for draping venue, table runners and covering chairs etc. I’m feeling inspired!!
