Congratulations on your Engagement to all the newly Engaged couples in town, this is such an exciting time for you!
Being engaged is a beautiful moment which must be celebrated with lots of celebrations, dinners and parties not forgetting sharing your special moment on Instagram and Facebook. You need to enjoy staying in the bubble and celebrating your wonderful news at any given moment with loved ones and friends.
Once you are ready to start planning your Luxury Wedding, I am sure you will be pinning away at anything you fancy and sharing Pinterest images on social media and with loved ones on the vision you have for your luxury wedding.
Over 4 million people use Pinterest to create their Luxury Wedding Visions and also connect with suppliers. I love Pinterest and often create boards along with my couples to help create their dream wedding during our Consultations as part of the FULL WEDDING PLAN or our Bespoke LUXURY INSPIRATION SESSIONS.
The board works as a guide and vision to your Luxury Wedding and can be used when choosing suppliers to work with as well as keep in line with your wedding budget.
Click here to see a few Pinterest Boards that I have created for some of my past clients.
Over the course of the next four weeks I will be sharing with you the Ultimate Guide to your Perfect Luxury Wedding. I have shared this guide with my couples on their wedding planning journey and look forward to sharing it with you.

Hi loves, it’s a new week time for a new Guide to Your Luxury Wedding! This week we are chatting about one of the main tasks in planning your wedding, CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING SUPPLIERS!!
Suppliers are the main ingredients in your luxury wedding and choosing your suppliers requires a lot of research, patience and a decisive mind. Once you know your style and budget of your wedding, it’s time for you to identify suppliers that align with your vision and can deliver the perfect results.
As a Luxury Wedding planner, I have built relationships with different wedding suppliers that I know and trust will be able to deliver the services required by my clients. During our consultations we will review these suppliers and narrow it down to your preferred choices. Often these are the five steps I recommend you use when choosing suppliers:
Research suppliers local to you and your wedding venue.
Choosing local suppliers reduces time spent travelling to visit the suppliers and also means once selected suppliers costs will have reduced transportation charges to your wedding venue.
Choose at least three suppliers from each category
Choice is the best thing in life and having three options for suppliers allows you the chance to compare the suppliers and their services. There are so many aspects involved in choosing the perfect supplier therefore take your time to narrow it down to the top 3.
Arrange visits with a clear vision of your requirements
Once you have your finalised Pinterest board for your wedding, this will act as a guide to you and your suppliers. Being clear in your vision will also guide you during the visits, reducing confusion, time spent reviewing other options as well as staying within your wedding budget.
Create a spreadsheet for each category and fully complete it with all the information from the visits and compare the services and offers
Based on your visits, Pinterest board and budget you are now in a place to make the final decision and CHOOSE YOUR PREFERRED SUPPLIER.
Congratulations, the best part of the wedding planning has been successful. You have chosen your suppliers now it’s time to get those contracts reviewed, signed and sealed.
Review your contracts and ensure that your requirements and the suppliers delivery expectations are fully detailed prior to signing.
Hope you have enjoyed this instalment in our Four Week Guide!!
