Knowing what to do and when is imperative in the minefield that is the wedding organization.

First things first, a bit of an obvious one – but if you haven’t got the engagement ring then get it now!

If you have no idea, what kind of look you like, then there are various sites around that show you what rings will look like, and although this may not be as good as putting it on your finger and trying it on, they do give you an idea.

We will be providing information regarding romantic proposals and ideas soon, but if you’re reading this, hopefully, that parts been taken care of! For you we will provide places where the rings are really good both in quality and price, we will aim to provide the places based on feedback from you our site visitors, and e-book readers.

Make yourself a good checklist, we will help you build this over time, and you will find one on our website soon. This checklist should be broken down into “time zones” (when things should be done by) and tasks.

Another essential tool is a Wedding Diary, this compliments the checklist and it is to record anything and everything that needs to be done, the steps needed to achieve them when they should be completed by. It is vital that you set realistic deadlines for everything. Try to distribute tasks by when they’re required and their importance, by doing this you will alleviate unnecessary stress.

The diary should also note the specifics and when the action was completed – we used a color-coding system (yes we know it’s a bit “Monicaesque” – Friends) we cannot stress the importance of it enough! Some of you will be “visual” people and you’ll find things well organized simply because of the color-coding.

During the organization process, you will meet a lot of people with lots of things and receive lots of information. You must keep absolutely everything – you never know you might need it later on. You need to ensure that you build good relationships with each and every person you speak to – you never know you might actually need them, and remember, by being nice you might be able to get more out of people, that could come in the form of a price reduction or even a service improvement.
