As any bride would know, the months of wedding planning, budgeting and dealing with a ton of personalities that come with any celebration is sometimes enough to put a damper to on the fun festivities of a wedding day.  The good news is that there are specific measures you can do to ensure that you won’t feel any frustration, money worries or resentment.

Here’s are a few top tips to make your bridal process a smoother one.


No matter how small or big the wedding may be, you can never be too organised and making a to-do list is a great place to start. Note down as many tasks and ideas as possible and then rank them according to priority. Ticking tasks off your list will be the most satisfying feeling ever! You’re welcome.


Getting your wedding priorities straight will help you with budgeting. You’ll cut down the schedule, spend more time working on the top three on your list and compromise on making the rest work within your budget.

You might be spending half of your budget on the wedding photography. But, forget the bombonieres and the bottle of champagne. After all, these two items won’t be able to provide you with photos that’ll last you a lifetime.


There are thousands of suppliers and vendors to choose from and it can get seriously overwhelming. That’s why you mustn’t be afraid to ask around from friends and family for wedding vendor recommendations!

You can also pull recommendations from non-wedding events, or from your own life. For example, what’s your favourite cafe? Do they also do catering or events? Or even better, do they have a private function room where you could host your ceremony, reception? You’d be surprised how many cafes and restaurants have private spaces for events such as a wedding which brings us to our next tip.


If you are looking to have a civil ceremony, then having a singular venue will be perfect. It can be overwhelming to host a wedding venue that expects you to do everything on your own. Choose an all-in-one event place which offers wedding packages so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of your special day!


Wedding planning can be a very time-consuming process and something that a lot of couples underestimate. Planners and consultants work with you to take as much stress away, while you get involved in as much or as little as you desire. They help in ensuring to create an unforgettable day and an incredible experience.


At some point during the wedding planning, make sure to treat yourselves to a little R&R. Book a weekend getaway out of town or a simple staycation will do. A break from wedding planning will help you come back refreshed and rejuvenated.
