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.

Rustic Orange Themed Wedding

Are you planning a homemade, rustic style wedding?

I’ve just received this real wedding from Mark Dickinson Photography via Two Bright Lights and I just had to share it with you.

I really like the way the bride has incorporated the orange theme throughout her wedding.

Also loving the orange gerbera bouquets and the floral garlands decorating the chairbacks.

The rustic theme continues through to the wooden signage and the rural setting. This is one wedding to inspire you if you’re looking for a country theme. Enjoy!
