I’ve had a fair share of experience: a hospitality degree, an internship at the Don Cesar, an assistant to a couple wedding planning businesses, and planning my own wedding. I know weddings. And I am absolutely in love with weddings and the wedding planning process.
Where to Start:
A lot of brides don’t even know where to begin. Here’s my tips to start the wedding planning process without stressing or freaking out! This is something to be enjoyed! So let’s get started…
Pinterest. Wedding magazines. Find a good month by month checklist and you’ve got your new best friend for the next few months. But seriously, the checklist is the key. It tells you what to do, when to do it, and keeps you on schedule. If you follow the checklist, it’ll eliminate so much stress. Make sure not to fall behind.

2. Buy a planner.
That’s right. Get yourself a cute little agenda from Target and keep all the dates in one place. Dress fittings. Makeup trials. Food tastings. This’ll keep things organized.
3. Don’t get ahead of yourself.
Don’t start worrying about what you need to do in a couple of months. Take one day at a time and enjoy every moment! Being engaged is fun, but all too often, brides spoil this precious season by freaking out and stressing out. Have joy and create joy.
4. Take care of yourself.
Get lots of sleep. Read a book. Drink some tea. Go for a walk. Have a spa day at home. Being a healthy bride, makes you a happy bride.
5. Enjoy your fiancé!
Don’t forget the reason why you’re engaged! You’re in love with the man of your dreams and you are about to build a life together. Marriage is such a special gift. When two become one, they can do so much more together for the Lord. Go on dates. Spend lots of time together. Pray together.
I hope you found these tips helpful! Use them to help you plan your own wedding, or pass this post along to a friend! More tips are coming, lovelies!
