Where to start...
I got engaged (huge surprise) in June and have just about come to terms with it enough now to start planning. We (I) want a Summer 2018 wedding (he says 2019 to save up but it just feels like too far away) so I'm here to get some advice.
Where the hell do i start?
We've looked at a few (local) venues, and i do know that i want the ceremony to be in a different venue than the reception. We've narrowed a couple down and have a couple of dates available for each one. So, once we've decided on that, we'll have a date (EEK)
We have been together for over 8 years, but the conversation of getting married has never once came up, from either of us. I think it's always something i'd assumed i would do, but I'm not the type of girl to have obsessed over it since i was a child and know exactly what i want as soon as the ring went on my finger!
So, do any of you brides, or soon to be brides (even that word makes me a bit queasy!) have any hints and tips on where is the best place to start? What to stress over, and what really isn't a big deal? I don't want a big princess wedding, but we do both have large families so we can't exactly keep it low key.
Any advice hugely appreciated
