Pin ‘n’ Plan
Pinterest is an inspiration haven, so whether you’re opting for a low key and relaxed affair or a glam blowout with hundreds of guests, it’s a great place to start when planning your wedding. But with so many boards to follow, it can be tricky to know where to begin to get the look you’re after. Luckily for you, ladies, we’ve done the hard work and rounded up a couple of our favourites on everything from invites and centrepieces, to hairstyles and cakes! Check them out below and get ready to start planning (and pinning!).
Once you have your date set, you will want to get those invitations and save the date cards sent ASAP. As the invite is really the first aspect of your wedding that you will be sharing with your guests, it’s nice to make them personal and give your guests a hint of what’s to come for your big day.
If you’re going for a classic style wedding with a slight rustic edge, we love this board. The aged paper, traditional calligraphy and wax seals definitely set the scene for a classy affair.
