How to get started when planning a wedding

Create a Wedding Wishlist

Planning a wedding can be stressful and at times downright annoying. Figuring out all the little details from party favors to which linens to use can be overwhelming if you’re doing the planning on your own. Being disorganized when planning a wedding is like dating Kim Kardashian. PAINFUL AND DESTINED TO FAIL!

To make things a little easier, try organizing your ideas in a Wedding Wish Book. This is an opportunity for you to live beyond the reality of what your budget will ultimately dictate and instead find inspiration for your wedding. So go ahead and throw caution to the wind.

Dividing your Wedding Wish Book into sections helps you stay organized and focused on the big picture. You might divide your book into sections:

  • Guests
  • Food
  • Spaces
  • Flowers
  • Suits/Tuxedos
  • Dresses/Gowns
  • Cake/Dessert
  • Hotels/Transportation
  • Honeymoon
  • Miscellaneous (this section is great for random things like favors and welcome baskets)

These sections are just suggestions, but for sure you will likely think about including them.

Lastly, buy magazines, get print-outs and start filling your Wedding Wish Book with anything you see that makes you say, “ooooooh!” or “yeeeeeesssss!” Soon you will start to notice a trend in the things you are attracted to. All of sudden you will have found your wedding colors without even stressing about it! That is why the Wedding Wish Book is so great! It allows you to gather your ideas in a fun exciting way without causing you to breakout in hives. Plus, you only have to commit to something when you’re ready. So go, explore, have fun and find inspiration!
