So you’re now engaged — congrats, but gushing time is over, it’s time to get down to brass tax… planning this b*tch!
I’m going to have a wedding series since I just got married and I’m basically an expert now.
JK, but I learned a bunch of stuff that I felt I didn’t find on other sites. So if you want someone to gush, peep another blog but this is a gush-free zone (but maybe subscribe to get updates still).
It won’t be every week, but maybe once a month, different tips and tricks that I came across in my planning. I also plan various events for real-life work, so I’m not a total noob at this.
OK, so I planned my own wedding because I feel like other people wouldn’t have done it as well. It’s not being full of myself…well maybe it is, but it’s also a fact. I had nine months to plan and it was the best wedding I’ve attended. Once again, full of myself and fact 🙂
Here is what you need to do and when if you wanna be an Organized Ola rather than a Loser Linda.
The very first step: Actually be engaged! Only Loser Linda would count her eggs before hatching. But seriously, first step is figuring what you want i.e. rough size of wedding, religious vs heathen, etc. because you don’t want to start contacting places that will not offer what you’re looking for.
Below is a graphic that you can use and a Polish Ola Wedding Timeline that won’t suck up all the colour ink from your work printer (don’t pretend like you’re gonna print at your own house).
Note: your wedding might be different than mine. I had a church ceremony with reception at a venue. I also didn’t have a wedding party, but included it. Regardless, this is just a guide to show what you should be planning when. In my a future post in the wedding series, I’ll dive into these topics and tell you the 411 (that’s means ‘what’s up’ or ‘what’s the deal’).
