Tip 1: Plan a wedding that suits you! Remember who you are and choose a wedding style that suits you – if you’re comfortable with formality and formal is what you’re looking for that’s fine but don’t be pressured into opting for a style that just doesn’t reflect you. This goes for choosing your suppliers too!

Tip 2: Don't be afraid to ask for help! There's lots to think about and lots to do so be realistic about your capacity to do it all yourself.

Tip 3: Try not to get too obsessed with wedding planning - (I know that sounds a little strange coming from a wedding planner!) but take regular breaks from wedding planning to spend time with each other - enjoy being engaged rather than seeing it as just the gap between being single and married!
