Plan your Wedding Planning

You’ve just enjoyed the whirlwind excitement of your new engagement and now you’re realising your wedding day isn't going to happen by itself. There are countless decisions to be made (Which wedding venue? Which date? What even is a wedding breakfast?) and, seemingly, so little time to do it all. If this sounds like you, you are in the right place! 

Here at Bijou, we love everything about planning weddings; from searching through beautiful wedding venues to choosing an elegant theme and perfecting every last detail. On this page, we’re sharing our wisdom to help simplify your wedding planning, including an easy to follow timeline and some honest home truths (a must read if your vision of wedding planning is that of cliché rom-coms and Pinterest...). 

If you’ve only just started your wedding planning but know you want to host the most unforgettable day, head straight for our article all about choosing unique wedding venues. Or, if you’ve been planning your special day for years (perhaps even before The Proposal!) our A-Z of weddings is the perfect read to ensure nothing is forgotten.
