Q: How far in advance should I start planning my wedding? A: Ideally, you should start planning your wedding at least a year in advance to allow ample time to book vendors and secure your chosen venue. However, if you have less time, it’s still possible to plan a beautiful wedding with careful organisation and prioritisation.

Q: Should I hire a wedding planner? A: If you’re feeling overwhelmed or unsure of where to start, hiring a wedding planner can be a great investment. A wedding planner can help you stay on budget, connect you with reputable suppliers, and handle all the little details so you can enjoy your special day.

Q: How much should I budget for my wedding? A: The total budget for a wedding can vary widely depending on factors like the number of guests, the location, and the type of suppliers you choose. However, as a general rule, you should plan to spend about 50% of your budget on the venue, catering, and rentals, with the remaining 50% allocated for all other elements of the wedding like photographer etc.

Planning a wedding is a big undertaking, but with the help of our ultimate wedding planning checklist, you can stay organised and ensure that everything runs smoothly on your special day. Remember to take your time, prioritise what’s important to you, and enjoy the journey!
