Like most women out there I’ve been planning my wedding since long before I even had my first boyfriend…..from the colour scheme to my dress to the type of dessert - had it all organized in my head!!
So after a string of “what did I ever see in him’s” I finally met Mr right, got engaged and thought to myself… “I know what I want so this is going to be a breeze - I got this….”
Well…..turns out it was not as simple as that!!
It's not just a question of booking a venue, buying your gown and you're married.
Most couples firstly think of the big things like the cake, flowers, photographer and music; but there are so many other things that need to come together to make your perfect wedding - like the rings, favours, stationary, beauty regime and even who your officiant will be - these smaller things are often overlooked in the beginning but actually play a very important role. And along with all of this you also need to make sure to stick to the budget you set youself.
Then of course there are other decisions to make like who will be in your wedding party and which guests to invite; do you want to use a planner, do you want a destination wedding - the list goes on....
So, I relized that there is a lot more to planning a wedding than I originally thought and found myself thinking - after spending hours online doing research about the do's and don'ts, timeline planning, finding suppliers that fit into our budget - that it would just be so much easier if all the information I needed was in one place .....
…….and hence Let’s Plan It was born!!
Planning a wedding should be enjoyable, and that is the aim of this site - to save you time (and frustration) by giving you everything you need in one place to plan not only a wedding but any event in an easy and convenient way.
How It Works
To make life easier we have incorporated 3 search options:
All - this will bring up all the suppliers on the site.
General - here you can search for suppliers according to category, area or price.
Budget - here you give us your budget and we will find everything you need in one location.
Your step by step guide for the Budget search:
Select a budget that you have in mind and click submit...
A list of all the different categories will then appear with a preset value for each category...these values are based on the recommended averages that research has shown.
You can leave them as is or adjust the percentage on the categories as you please...
Once you are happy with all the financials click on search and Let’s Plan It will do the hard work!
You will then be given a list of suppliers that fall into your selected budget category.

Ideas & Advice
When I was planning my wedding I found myself spending more time researching how to plan a wedding rather than actually planning my wedding. So, I have put together this 'Ideas and Advice' section with all the information you require for planning a wedding - and as a wedding, after all, is an event - most of this information will come in handy for planning any event. I have included everything from questions to ask suppliers to timeless and even paperwork requirements - make sure to check back every now and then as we will be adding more articals with time.
