As anyone involved in planning a wedding will tell you, the perfect, fairy-tale wedding doesn’t just happen by magic, no matter how much you want it to! There is so much to think about when it comes to wedding planning, from flowers and cars to budgets and guests, so what’s the best way to stay on top of things and make sure that nothing is left to chance? One of the most effective ways to do this is to use a wedding budget planner to keep track of your finances and make sure you stick to your budget.

Wedding planning can be stressful at the best of times, but being organised can take the pressure off leading up to the big day. By using a wedding budget planner and a wedding checklist, you can make sure that everything within the wedding package is booked and paid for all in good time. Go ahead with arranging the photographer and flowers and buying the outfits and wedding dress, just make sure that you record everything you have paid for in your wedding budget planner and tick them off as you go along on the wedding checklist.

Traditionally, spring and summer months were when weddings were planned for, but with the statistics on couples getting married starting to rise after a decline in recent years, there is now far more choice of places to get married at any time of the year, whatever the weather. When planning a wedding, the venue is usually the first place to start, with all other details falling into place once you’ve decided on where your big day is going to be held. After all, it will depend on the size of the venue, where it is and the colour scheme as to how you plan your service and subsequent reception.

It also takes into account all the bits in-between, such as where the guests will stay, which room the wedding will take place and if the meal will be in a different part of the venue, among the many other things that will occupy mind as you go along. The meal is often a sticking point for couples when deciding where to sit relatives who notoriously don’t get on – make sure you don’t get these details wrong but using a seating planner, as you only get one go at your big day. Planning a wedding needn’t be stressful. Use the planning tools that you have at your disposal and it will be as smooth as it possibly can be.
