    What's your best wedding planning tip?

    What advice would you give to an engaged couple who are just planning their big day?

    Relax- Plan to have the day you want not others - Have a sense of humour as sometimes things do go wrong but it is how you react can make or break the day .  The main thing is that you love each other and are together . You do not need to spend a fortune to be happy ..We had a very small beach wedding as it was our 2 nd marriage and we loved it .
    I hope it all goes well for you both!

      Actually I'm helping someone close to organise theirs, but it's a bit complicated and I fully agree with your adbice. It's about the couple and not everyone else so I hope they will enjoy their day very much smile

    You don't need to have your reception and ceremony on the same day. I was married in the winter. We did the reception in the summer when more of my family were able to make the trip to be there.

      This sounds like a great idea if someone wants more time for the planning and having everyone together for the big celebration. Thanks a lot

    Remember it's (your) day and (your) future. Delegate assignments!
    Too often people get swept up taking "advice" from numerous people, trying to please family/friends, and stressing to have the "perfect" ceremony. Don't go bankrupt hosting wedding activities. The wedding is just (one day). The marriage hopefully is for (life). Don't try to invite every single person you know!
    Set a budget and stick to it. If possible choose an "all inclusive" honeymoon destination through a company like Apple Vacations or Sandals. Allow yourselves 2-3 years of adjusting to marriage before starting a family. Once you have children you won't have this type of time alone to spoil one another until the empty nest occurs after the last child moves out. Also having children does create stress and a lots of responsibilities. Use your time to prepare for their arrival by setting aside money and creating a strategy for how you want to raise them.

      This is a great advice, thanks. So many people focus on this one event whilst saving for the future plans is just as important or more! Though a honeymoon in a fantastic all inclusive location is every newly weds' dream I think smile
