How to start planning a wedding?

Wedding planning can be a very stressful task and is not as simple as some may believe! Some individuals may have more time than others, with years, or some with just months or even just a few weeks. Regardless of how much time you have one of the most important things to do when planning a wedding is to set a date!

Here our are “Top 5 Essential Wedding To Dos” that should be on your wedding checklist when thinking about your big day:

Set The Date

A lot goes into selecting a potential wedding date. Firstly, if you know where you would like to have your nuptials does the wedding venue that you have in mind have availability on that date? Another thing to consider is the weather, if you want an outdoor wedding or location wedding, the time of the year is also key to the success of your big day.

Whilst traditionally invitations and save the dates were sent by post, it is becoming more and more common for this to be done by e-mail, making things much easier to organise with lots of different websites available to help you with this.

Wedding Venue

Gather together a number of potential weddings venues and see if the date that you have in mind is available you might also want to see what other dates they might have, as different times of the year can be more or less expensive.


Once you have compiled your guest list it is wise to send out your save the dates as soon as possible with invitations going out no less than 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day.


The planning of your big day, and the planning of your time leading up to it, is essential to its success. The more detailed and organised your plans are the more smoothly things will run. It would also be wise to seek the helping hand of a professional. Not only can Wedding Angels provide you with a wealth of experience, we are also less expensive than traditional wedding planners.
