Engaged? The First 3 Steps to Planning the Wedding You Really Want

how to plan your weddingBeautiful bride, I’m so glad you’re here (isn’t paper + lace stunning)!

I’m Megan from She Said Yes, and I’m so happy to be here to help you plan your wedding. It’s an absolute honour to have even the smallest involvement in planning your dream day.

If you have just got engaged (Congratulations) it can all feel a little bit overwhelming. Everyone has an opinion on how you should plan your wedding, your families each have their own expectations, and you may also be feeling a bit of pressure from your friends, social media (+ Pinterest) and even yourself, about the kind of wedding to have. I hope to dispel some of that pressure, and make you feel good about planning the kind of wedding you really want.

I share a lot of ‘wedding planning wisdom’ over on She Said Yes too, but the gorgeous Jax has been kind enough to invite me to share some exclusive content for you paper + lace lovelies too. Like Jax, I’ve been a wedding blogger for a few years, and more recently started my own business with the little white book wedding planner book. Helping brides-to-be plan their big day is my absolute passion and privilege.

I know that one of the hardest things about getting started with wedding planning is getting your guest list organised, working out your budget and choosing your wedding venue, but if there’s any other particular problems you’re having, let me know and I’ll write something to help you out.

In the meantime, I’ll begin with those three topics, in the order I suggest you tackle them:

ONE. Start your wedding budget
TWO. Work out your guest list
THREE. Choose your wedding venue

If this helped you, head to the She Said Yes wedding planning page for an index of content, and if you haven’t already, take a little look at the little white book the best wedding planner book and Megan’s new ‘baby’ – pregnancy journal made with love
