TIPS FOR PLANNING YOUR OWN WEDDING

Planning your own wedding can seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools, it truly isn't that bad! I had a little help with our wedding, but did the majority of the leg work myself! Here are my top tips for planning your own wedding:

  1. Have a vision for what you want your wedding to look like.
  2. Decide what your priorities are (i.e. catering, the DJ, your dress, etc.).
  3. Make a separate wedding email address for easy organization. 
  4. Use Excel for budgeting, addresses, and other tasks. 
  5. Use Pinterest for inspiration and for planning times. 
  6. Find vendors using WeddingWire and Yelp. 
  7. READ VENDOR REVIEWS.
  8. Check out venues and vendors on Instagram. 
  9. Enlist friends for help when possible
  10. Trust your gut when it comes to making big decisions.

A Practical Wedding was one of my favorite wedding go-to resources. They're full of resources you didn't know you needed (in a good way!) and provided perspectives that helped me  stay grounded throughout the process. They're the best!
