The 20 Stages of Planning a Wedding That Most Brides Know to be True

Getting engaged, isn’t it just magical? Everyone congratulates you and you are the centre of attention, but no-one warns you of the huge black cloud that will overtake your life – that is, wedding planning. Below we’ve listed the 20 stages of wedding planning that most brides are sure to go through:

  1. First thing’s first; you excitedly make the announcement to your family and friends, to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, to your work colleagues, neighbours, ex-best friend, and essentially, anyone who will listen.

  3. You think people are exaggerating how hard this ‘wedding planning’ malarkey is, it’s only week one and you’ve already set a date!

  11. Your bridesmaids, bless their hearts, try to share their opinions…

  16. You never thought you were cheap, but after you meet with the caterers you wonder if you can get away with not feeding your guests at all?

  17. After all, you will be feeding them ‘sick beats’ with the expensive DJ you have booked.
