Wedding planning can be an extremely overwhelming and stressful time.

With the right planning strategy and tips, your life will be made easier and even more enjoyable. Today, we will share some of our essential wedding planning tips to help all of you budding brides!

Tip #1 Set your wedding budget

First things first, get your finances to ensure a smooth process when wedding planning. A budget is integral, so definitely decide with your partner or family before confirming or buying anything major! Having a budget will definitely make your bridal planning easier, so you know how much to spend on your dress, accessories, flowers, and anything else you desire as the bride. You don't want to overspend and go off budget - be organized and buy yourself a budget planner!

Tip #2 Finding the dress

Arguably the most important step for budding brides; seeking out your dream bridal gown, one you will cherish forever. We most definitely recommend you do your research on the silhouette, style, color, fabric, and details you desire for your perfect dress. Flick through wedding magazines, browse Pinterest, or shop around. Once you have an idea in place, you can begin your search. But what happens if you can't find the one? Opt for a custom-made wedding dress. Custom gowns are made-to-order unique, individual ensembles made by hand to your liking. You will have the opportunity to choose every detail and be present every step along the way! Our stunning bride Jeanna looks like an angel adorned in her crepe and lace sheath custom-made dress. By choosing to have a custom, bespoke gown, you will most certainly stand out from the rest and feel your most confident self as you say 'I do'.

Tip #3 Choose a theme or color scheme

This step is definitely one of the most fun and creative moments when planning, and it is great to do with your partner so both styles and personalities are reflected in your wedding. Consider your vision for your wedding, what aesthetics you like, your favorite colors, and the season of your wedding. All of these factors will help you decide on a theme and color scheme! Once you have settled on this, you can start investigating venues and vendors that can supply you with the appropriate decor to suit the theme.

Tip #5 Create your guest list

Having a guest list is more important than you think. To be able to book your venue and vendors, you should have a clear idea of how many people are invited to your wedding. Although this seems very early to start planning who you are inviting, it is essential so you can properly accommodate everyone on the big day!
