So you've just got engaged, but what next? When you're both busy with work how do you squeeze in all the wed-min? We asked Essex wedding planner Hayley Jayne Weddings and Events...
While it's tempting to jump straight into viewing potential Essex wedding venues, investing a little time beforehand confirming your wedding budget and creating a draft guest list will ensure that you have the essential information needed to shortlist wedding venues to meet your requirements.
Securing your Essex wedding suppliers can also be a time consuming. Hours can be lost stalking social media platforms and websites. However, family and friends who have recently tied the knot are often keen to share their supplier lists, saving hours of research! You could also ask for recommendations from the experts you've already booked. Wedding professionals work with like-minded creatives on a daily basis, making them an ideal source of information.
I know it's hard to delegate but sharing tasks from your to-do list is an excellent time-saving idea. If you have a particularly organised friend, why not ask them to take control of your RSVP and dietary requirement management? You could also ask your maid-of-honour to book bridal party attire appointments. Whatever tasks you decide to assign, sharing the workload is a great way to include your loved ones in your wedding planning journey.
If you're really finding it hard, why not pass the baton on to a qualified and experienced wedding planner leaving you to enjoy the excitement of the wedding build-up?
