Your big day is a time to celebrate and enjoy every special moment. Our new collection Always & Forever, is designed to help you every step of the way. From the initial organisation to styling an inspiring space, to capturing memories, we have the perfect pieces to help you on your journey.
To inspire you to get started we asked our New Zealand based Workshop Consultant Kim Yong to share her 5 top wedding planning tips. Don’t forget that you can also book into our inspiring Wedding Workshop for more organising tips and inspiration.
1. Create a vision board to collate all your ideas and inspiration.
A physical vision board is great for a hands-on, creative bride or groom-to-be. Photos, magazine cut outs and to do lists are just a few of the things you could post on your vision board.
Or if you’re more tech savvy, Pinterest is an amazing app that you can take everywhere with you on your phone. You can create a board for each area of your wedding; from the venue to your wedding dress/suit, and wedding favours to flowers.
2. Ask for help.
You don’t have to do everything! Remember that you can always ask others for help and delegate items on your to do list. Asking for help means that you can focus more time and energy on what matters most to you.
3. Get yourself a wedding planner or folder.
Having a planner or folder dedicated to your wedding will reduce your stress by having all your information, bookings and lists in one place. Our Wedding Notes book is the perfect tool to get you organised, with tabs and lists covering everything you need to plan your dream wedding.
4. When making tough decisions, go with your gut.
Planning a wedding is stressful and when you overthink, or are indecisive, your stress levels increase. If in doubt, always go with your gut feeling and don’t forget that the best moments are the ones you don’t plan!
5. Take some time out to recharge. When planning your wedding, make sure to also plan some me time leading up to the big day. A relaxing massage, a day to yourself or even 15 minutes to read your favourite book will help you to slow down and be mindful. Our workshops are also a wonderful way for you to take some time out for yourself.
