Are you a recently engaged couple not sure where to begin?

First things first, we want to congratulate you on your engagement! Let the celebrations begin and your love be known. But wait, this now means you’ll have questions left right and center from your family & friends about things that you haven’t even considered yet. Yikes! Well, for starters let them know you’ve given no thought to what colour your bridesmaids dresses are, or where you’ll be getting married and let them know you’re just basking in the limelight of being engaged…for now.

When you are ready to start planning your wedding (btw, there really is no ‘right’ time). Then be sure you know what you’ll be getting yourself into before it all begins. Don’t prepare yourself to be stressed during this process, instead, prepare yourself to be ready to take on wedding planning! Simply put, the key to a hiccup-free wedding is smart planning. Save yourself the headache and stick to an organized, constructed plan that you and your fiancé put together – keyword: together.

Fortunately for you, there are multiple online resources to help you plan and organize your wedding, all which we’ve already done the digging of our top fav’s for you!

STAYING ORGANIZED: When it comes to keeping track of everything, you’re going to want to make use of a checklist- like the one on our blog!  It covers everything for you; from budgeting, to your guest list, to ongoing reminders of your to-do’s per month!

FINDING INSPIRATION: So you have your venue selected but how in the heck do you make the red carpet’s work with any other colour aside from black, white & gold?! Pinterest will become your bestfriend, if it’s not already.

PLANNING TOGETHER: If your fiancé isn’t one for staring at pretty things, and is more of an excel doc kind of person that would rather have information handed to them, without the pretty fonts & cute graphics, Google+ and Google Doc’s will become your ultimate best friend. We frequently work with this tool to consolidate information with our clients.

You’re also going to want to get your hands on a Wedding Planner binder if you find yourself to be more of “for it to be real, I need to handwrite it” type of person, there are many printable fill-in-the-blanks online or you can find one at your local bookstore!

Happy Planning!
