Wedding Wednesday: J&J's Ultimate Wedding Checklist

Having nightmares about your big day turning into a disaster? Don't worry, we’ve got you covered. Continuing on with our wedding series...Today we present you with J&J's ultimate wedding checklist! Not gonna lie, wedding planning can be a bit of a headache! Co-ordinating all the different bits and pieces, we thought a basic list would be more helpful instead of a monthly planner because obviously each wedding is different, I've helped plan weddings in less than 10 days! Then there are others that take 2 years (me!). There honestly isn't any time frame on planning your special day. I have put this together to help you plan one of the best days of their lives, easily & effortlessly. 

Let the planning begin!

· Organise engagement party 

· Choose date, day and time of your wedding

· Discuss budget with those who are putting money towards this event
