I hear wedding bells
One of the things that all people will tell you that happens when they reach their mid 20s is that the rate of people having babies and getting married increases dramatically! For some people this option of settling down and having kids is a no brainer and potentially something that they have been dreaming about doing their whole life. For others, this idea is not quite as attractive as setting everything aside and heading out to visit some of the lesser trodden paths in the world is more appealing.
Regardless of your own personal choices, it is hard to deny that getting married is a big deal and it is likely you already have many friends that are planning a wedding. Even if it is not your own exact choice to get married at the moment, it can be extremely fun to give your friends a hand in wedding planning. With so much for them to do and organise they will be delighted to have your help on board!
Ideas for the big day
So whether it is your own big day that you are getting ready for, or whether you are helping a friend out, there is a wide array of options for you to choose from to help you get inspiration and start making some of the all important decisions.
Things you will need to decide on include (but are not limited to) your wedding cake, your wedding venue, the date of the wedding, your guest list, your decorations, your dress, your wedding photographer, your wedding transport and let’s not forget the rings!
Where to go for inspiration?
With so many things going on inside your head it can be difficult to think of something new and fun to try out for each of these different aspects. Regardless of your own personal taste, it is always worth researching and considering new ideas before making a final decision.
One of our favourite ways of doing this is checking out online blogs for real life tips and advice for your big day. An excellent new Wedding Blog has recently popped up and offers advice on many relevant topics for planning the most important day of your life.
Such wedding blogs are of course able to give fairly general advice. However, increasingly you will find that certain wedding blogs are focusing on different areas of expertise. Some may feature advice on how to remain calm and relaxed throughout the planning. Others may be able to offer money saving tips to ensure the budget is not exceeded. Several wedding blogs even appear to be experts in offering advice on specialised themed weddings!
Since you will be planning, or helping to plan, an extremely important day, it is essential to remember that everything you choose should be because you want it to be that way, not because others are suggesting it should. The bride and the groom are the most important people on the big day and they should not lose sight that wedding planning should be fun – if not a little stressful at times!
