What is it about Christmas time and the New Year festivities that screams ‘let’s get married!’? In fact, according to this article, over a third of all engagements happen between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Could it be the magic of Christmas, romantic nights by the fire or perhaps that extra glass of wine that we had just because we could?!It seems that more and more of us are choosing to get engaged over the holidays, and what better way to cheer up a gloomy January than by getting stuck into planning for the wedding of the year? (If not exactly the ‘wedding of the year’, it will be one of the most important days of your life!)
January can be a difficult enough month already without piling on the stress of planning for a wedding (and this weather isn’t exactly helping) so it makes sense to gather all the help you can. It’s not always financially viable to hire a professional wedding planner (nice and all as that may be!) so grab some of your best friends for a drink and throw some ideas around! Have fun with it – after all this will be your special day, so you want it to have positive associations from the outset. Modern life can be busy and ultra-demanding, but we also have the amazing tool of the Internet as an upside! So use all the online tools at your disposal to give you a helping hand.
Here at Top Wedding Sites our aim is to get rid of that of the traditional stress associated with wedding planning and give brides, grooms (and often their family and friends!) a hassle-free ‘one stop shop’ experience of all the wedding directories and information sites you could care to dream of – allowing you to plan your big day from the comfort of your own home, favourite coffee shop, or basically anywhere you have an Internet connection. It couldn’t be easier!
Your first stop will be to look at the top wedding site directory you can find. There are several fantastic ones available to you these days, mostly entirely free of charge – and we can guarantee these will be one of the most useful resources in planning a DIY wedding! Multiple directory sites such as our own http://www.topweddingsites.co.uk/ (we offer a series of wedding-related directories) make the whole process much simpler and more transparent.
We also like Weddingsite.co.uk’s no-nonsense approach to wedding planning – which contains details of over 200,000 wedding suppliers and allows users to search suppliers by category or location. It is great for the UK based bride to be. The site also offers a wedding supplier research service, fantastic for the time (and cash) pressed. Just post your request for a quote for free, picking a category, location, budget and description of what you need – the more the better here. Don’t forget to provide the date for your big day if you have it!
So if your New Year resolution list includes ‘Plan Our Wedding!’, don’t panic – just sit back on your sofa with a cuppa and your laptop and browse our lists of suppliers, wedding ideas and venues in your chosen area.
