Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting – and stressful – times in your life. There are so many things to think about, from the dress and the venue to the flowers for weddings and the cake, that it can be challenging to know where to start or even what you should be thinking about.
To help you out, we’ve put together a list of five things you shouldn’t forget when planning your big day. Incorporating these ideas and making sure they’re part of your overall wedding planning will help to make sure your day is everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
1. It is never too early to start contacting vendors.
If you have your heart set on a particular photographer, band, or florist, it’s essential to contact them as soon as possible to check their availability. Popular vendors can get booked up months (or years) in advance, especially in popular destinations like Noosa, Maleny, and Montville – so the sooner you get in touch, the better.
2. Taking classes can save a lot of money – and help reduce stress levels.
If you’re DIY-ing your wedding, taking some classes in advance can save you a lot of money (and stress) on your big day. There are now lots of classes available that teach you how to make your own bouquet, do your own hair and makeup, and even bake your own wedding cake. With the tools to help you feel more confident in your ability to plan a wedding, you’ll be less likely to make mistakes that could ruin your big day.
3. Delegation is key.
One of the most important things to remember when planning a wedding is that you can’t – and shouldn’t – try to do everything yourself. Delegating tasks to your friends, family, and even full-service wedding professionals will not only take some of the pressure off of you but will also help ensure everyone feels involved in the wedding planning process.

4. Don’t forget about the little things.
While it’s important to focus on the big details of your wedding, don’t forget the smaller details that can make a big difference on your big day. From the music you walk down the aisle to, to the wedding flowers that represent specific family members, paying attention to the little things will help to create a truly unique and personal wedding day.
5. Don’t forget to have fun!
Last but not least, don’t forget to have fun! Wedding planning can be stressful, but it’s also an exciting time in your life. So take some time to enjoy the process and savour every moment, from finding the perfect dress to picking out flowers with your wedding florist to saying “I do” on the big day.
