If you are planning a wedding, your first step should be to seek the advice of wedding industry professionals for guidance – people whose livelihood depends on producing successful results.
As a florist, you might think I’m biased recommending that you only use the services of wedding professionals for your wedding. If it’s in your budget, I would definitely say “Yes!” But I also realize that for many couples, it may not be possible.
If it’s not in your budget, or you just enjoy the doing things yourself, the easiest way to get great advice is to read and observe what the experts do.
Often, planning a wedding can be reduced to simple steps. Sure, creativity and inspiration factor in, but there is nothing like being able to look over the shoulder of someone who does it for a living. Books are the best and least expensive ways to do this.
There are a lot of great wedding planning books for the bride-to-be. Books that provide advice, ideas and inspiration for your ceremony, etiquette, flowers, and gowns.
Books that help you stay focused by providing calendars, timelines, worksheets and checklists. Here is a list of the current best-selling wedding books. It’s a great place to start…
