Five Quick Wedding Planning Tips from Aussie Wedding Blogger, Ms. Polka Dot

Wedding Planning Tips

It’s Friday, and why not start the weekend than with some wedding planning tips from down under… Today’s 5 Quick Wedding Planning Tips are from Aussie wedding blogger, Ms. Polka of Polka Dot Bride! If you’ve never checked out the wedding and entertaining blogs from Australia, take a moment and enjoy — there are also some fantastic Aussie wedding magazines out there, such as Real Weddings.

Without further ado, here are Ms. Polka Dot’s tips!

1. Spend some time after getting engaged just basking in the glow — enjoy no expectations, no pressures, no plans, just bask in the glow of your new commitment!

2. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t stress yourself out with too many DIY projects, Hire in the professionals for tasks you don’t have time or ability to do and finish your DIY projects early and consider hiring in help to make sure things run smoothly on the day!

3. Hold Hands. One of my favourite wedding tips was when the couple made sure they held hands all night of their wedding. While it may not be for you I love the sentiment of checking in with each other and keeping close and present with your newly beloved.

4. Host your guest. I know guests are adults but if they’re from interstate and have never been to your wedding destination before consider doing something to help them feel less like lost souls. Host a get together, a celebration before the wedding, or provide a list of suggested activities. I love it when I fly somewhere for a wedding (often a three day trip) and I get to spend longer than the ceremony and reception celebrating!

5. Don’t be afraid to do something really you and fun: wearing a cardigan, amazing shoes, red lips or a short dress, You don’t need to fit a certain style or expectation, you just need to be you.

Thank you, Ms. Polka for the wonderful tips!
