The Best Bits Of Planning A Wedding

All wedding planning is fun, right? Well, no, not really. Boring things like paying invoices, finding insurance and even making the table plan are enough to make you fall asleep. It’s true – some bits of wedding planning are more fun than others. When it comes to planning a wedding, there’ll be the things you want to do, and the things you have to do, but that’s ok, as the fun bits will outweigh the dull bits. To get you excited and into the wedding planning spirit, here are some of the best bits to look forward to of planning a wedding.

Picking a dress

Picking a dress is, without a doubt, the most princess-style moment of wedding planning. When else will you get to try on beautiful dresses worth hundreds that you get to twirl around in to a room of admiring people? Unless you’re a Hollywood actress, this is a once in a lifetime thing. Trying out different styles with your nearest and dearest will make you feel amazing, and the moment you find the one will give you a special memory you’ll cherish forever (even if it’s not the teary-eyed moment you see too often on TV) – so soak up every minute.

Choosing the food

If you’re a food lover, then, of course, you’re going to love this part. Getting to sample lots of different foods to choose your dream wedding menu is fun for you and your partner, and a good excuse for a date too. You’ll get to sample lots of different things that you might never have tried before, and most venues will include the tasting as part of the wedding package. Oh and don’t forget the wedding cake, who knew there could be so many different flavors? You may need to book several tastings for that one!

The entertainment

The entertainment you choose for your wedding will be a fun thing for you and your partner to pick together. Whether you have a favorite band, a hobby you both love or just love to be entertained, you’ll have a great time choosing something special for you and your guests. If you have no idea what entertainment you want, directories and websites like sourceme are ideal for finding a variety of companies who offer services like photo booths as well as music, leaving you with plenty of inspiration for your big day.

Hair and makeup

Many of us fail to treat ourselves, but choosing hair and makeup looks for your wedding is a great way to pamper yourself in the lead-up. You could spend hours browsing wedding magazines and websites trying to find the right look for you, trying out various styles to see what works and makes you look like the bride you pictured in your head. It’s also a good excuse to treat yourself to some new, high-quality makeup which you can continue to use after your wedding to make you feel special.


Planning a wedding can be fun, but there are some things you’ll want to hand over to the professionals. Read about the things to look out for when hiring professionals for your wedding and leave them to sort the basics, while you get to enjoy the fun bits.

  1. Hi Lindsay, hope you’re doing well! Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed reading through your blog and this post in particular really caught my eye! As someone who is also planning a wedding currently-not my own, but my sister’s-I can say that everything you talked about was spot on! It was very entertaining to read your experiences with choosing a dress and food and so on, and it reminded me a lot of my own experience of taste testing food, and choosing outfits for my sister’s wedding. I loved the fact that you chose to focus on the positive aspects of planning a wedding rather than the negatives, and I think both of us can agree that there are MANY negatives lol. I hope everything worked out perfectly with your wedding, and I’m hoping things will work out just fine with my sister’s! (Fingers crossed) You can check out my blog, too, if you’d like, to see my experiences with wedding planning and all that fun stuff! (it’s

    All the best, Bushra ❤
