I know some of my readers miss my "wedding" blog posts so I asked Ceena to be a guest writer.
Planning a wedding is not as hard as I thought. Well, if you are not as picky as other brides, and you and your fiance can agree and decide immediately like us (a reasonable budget aside of course). :)
After my fiance and I finalized the wedding date, we already started looking for the primary suppliers (coordinator, photographer, videographer). We had less than a year to plan and most of the articles I read about weddings say that you need at least a year to plan your perfect wedding. That's why in less than 2 months we were already half way done with our suppliers. :)
We got so scared that we won't be able to get the wedding suppliers we wanted that we didn't realize we had no particular supplier in mind. I guess it was one of the reasons why we completed our list so quickly and easily. We simply looked at the works of the suppliers referred to us by our friends and other wedding suppliers and set an appointment with them. We only met those suppliers whose work we liked, and if during the meeting we feel like working with them, we book them on the spot! :)
Me, My Fiance and Our Photographers
I'm not very particular with the details that's why it's easy for me to pick a supplier. For me, it's more important to feel at ease and to feel that you will have a smooth working relationship with your suppliers than making sure you're getting the best of the best deals from them. Making sure you'll have a stress-free wedding day should be the top priority.
