Planning a wedding week by week

Once you are engaged, it is high time to start planning the wedding. Sit down with your partner and talk about how your dream wedding day should go. Wedding planning must always have a clear order and structure, so we highly recommend getting a Wedding Diary to make your wedding preparation much easier.

If you don’t have a diary, that’s okay, come along with us for a step-by-step guide to planning your wedding – we’ve prepared a calendar of activities so that you know what to arrange for your wedding so that you don’t forget anything.
