Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

Today’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons is dedicated to the newly engaged, to you deliriously happy brides-to-be who are excitedly taking your first wedding planning steps. To all of you who’s heads are spinning from the thrill of having a ring on your finger and the thought of all that is to be done….take a deep breath and take a squiz at these 5 snippets of wedding planning wisdom……

1. Set a budget! And remember your wedding day is just the first day of the rest of your lives, so when your budget is set stick to it! Ruffled’s Wedding Pie series that breaks down the costs of some of the real weddings featured, will definitely help with this (after all who has any idea of how much a wedding costs until you start planning one!) This week they looked at Jessica and Terry’s Bohemian Fall Wedding which you can see here in all its glory captured beautifully by Carly Bish.

2. Get inspired! And there is no better place to start than with Wedding Blogs – free, at your fingertips and packed full of pretty! And there are plenty, each offering something a little bit different, so don’t stop when you find one you like. How about this elegant wedding inspiration shoot over on the Wedding Chicks…..

3. Create inspiration boards galore! They are by far the easiest and most effective way to collate your ideas and to communicate your vision to those who will be helping you create your dream day. If you don’t even know where to begin with creating your wedding day inspiration board, this post from the experts Pocketful of Dreams over on  Bridal Musings is a must read….

4. There is no greater inspiration than real weddings! Hearing the stories and advice from brides (and occasionally grooms) who have just experienced all the highs and lows, joys and trials with memories still fresh and emotions high, is never short of inspiring (and quite often tear inducing) so bask in their happiness and soak up the inspiration! Take a peek at this Rustic Chic Backyard Wedding of Highschool sweethearts Michelle and Jimmy to see what I mean….

5. Don’t forget the honeymoon! It is important, after all the excitement and stress of planning a wedding, to spend some time having fun, remembering the magical day and creating your all important first memories as husband and wife. This Is Glamorous guest post on Snippet & Ink had me yearning for a week in Paris!…..

Honeymoon Paris France

“But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Oh and of course don’t forget to get pinning!

Have a wonderful weekend,
