You’re Engaged – What to do and Where to begin!

You are ecstatic! Your partner has just proposed, and you said ‘yes’!!! But then you suddenly realise that in all the excitement and overwhelm, you have not previously thought about the type of wedding you would like and find yourself unsure of where to begin! If this, is you, then keep reading and do not worry - at Love Lydia Wedding & Events, we have your back! Below you will find a couple of suggestions as to how to get started!

Create a mind map/list/notes or brainstorm:

Start by listing all elements you would like to see on your wedding day. Have a think about what is important and a priority for you. For example, the suppliers you would need to source in order to secure that particular entertainment or the decorative display you would like to see on the dinner tables and when you walk down the aisle – it is advisable to be clear on these factors in the first instance if you can, so when planning your wedding budget, you can easily determine where to allocate your spend and prioritise certain elements over others, as required. 

Or are you someone who does not have any idea what you would even like? that is perfectly normal too! This is where the internet becomes your best friend.

Start by simply searching online whether that be wedding themes, wedding décor, how to plan, beginner checklists and you will find all the answers you are looking for (and more!) – this will help you create clear direction and insight of what you want. Beautiful magazines can also be another form of inspiration or even just a walk in the park or a drive in the countryside.

Speak to / hire a Wedding Planner:

This is where you can ensure your wedding vision will come to life in the most seamless, stress-free way possible! Whilst not obligatory, if you are someone who feels needs direction or advice, one avenue of support we recommend is seeking a wedding planner. Wedding planners are there to guide you through the entire planning process, eliminating any stress you have or may experience later on - they can design mood boards and brainstorm ideas with you from their own professional experience, while ensuring all details have been carefully thought out and are realistic.

The wedding journey is one of the most exciting milestones a person will experience and every moment of it should be an enjoyable one! We appreciate that sometimes couples are faced with tight timelines/deadlines and there is a sense of urgency to secure a venue and other suppliers, but we strongly recommend couples not to rush and make any haste decisions. It can be both an exciting and overwhelming process, so it is a good idea to stop and reflect on your ideas and clearly identify what you really want to ensure you get the most out of what should be the most wonderful experience!

Dear Love Lydia...

We were extremely fortunate to have engaged Lydia to plan our wedding last summer. She and her team were absolutely fantastic. It really made a huge difference having her assistance and support through all the planning. On the day of the wedding itself, she and her staff executed the day flawlessly. You really cannot go wrong with Lydia and to top it all, she’s an absolutely wonderful person.

Kyoko & Tosin

Lydia is amazing at what she does and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through the challenges of a 2020 wedding. She has helped and supported us through the whole postponement of it to next year and we have complete confidence in her - when Lydia says she is going to do something, we don't even have to worry anymore! She has great contacts in the industry which has made the whole process so much easier having a marquee wedding, where you tend to need more suppliers.

Fiona & Richard

We are so pleased with the wonderful way everything was organised and co-ordinated on the day. Words just aren’t enough to convey our thanks. You made our day just perfect

Melanie & Lewis

Jay and I would like to thank you for planning our daughter Sarah and son-in-law Paul’s wedding day. It really took the weight off of our shoulders, allowing us to truly enjoy the beautiful occasion. Your nothing-is-too-much attitude throughout the whole planning stage and on the day, made us feel totally at ease and we couldn’t believe how relaxed we all were on the day itself! This was especially so because your professional approach put us totally at ease from our very first meeting. Many thanks, you are well worth your weight in gold!

Susan & Jay

Thank you Lydia and your team for the most unforgettable day. It was everything we dreamt of and more. Even though we commissioned your services a little after the initial arrangements were made, we felt that your hands-on approach was very reassuring and made for a magical, stress-free day. Thank you again.

Debbie & Jo

We don’t know how we would have done it without you! Your professional, yet friendly approach, really put us at ease during the whole fourteen month process. Thank you so much for arranging our wedding over four days in Albania. Your patience was extremely appreciated and your resourcefulness was second to none. Our guests were completely blown away with the beautiful venue and styling and are still talking about it several months later. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will never arrange another event without Love Lydia.

Antuela & George

I hired Lydia as my wedding coordinator for my wedding in Sardinia. I had to take her with me as there was no one better in my opinion. I have to say that Lydia has such a variety of skills and gives 110% effort into everything she does. Lydia was available to me day and night and nothing I asked for was too much trouble. Lydia treated my wedding like it was her own and wanted to make sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me. My family and friends have said it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

Christie & Danny

As the groom with an amazingly organised wife I was originally against using a wedding planner but I’m not ashamed to admit I was wrong. Lydia was absolutely amazing. Not only did she help get our dream venue on the day that we wanted, she was brilliant all throughout the whole process. Constantly in contact and not mention on the actual day of the wedding how amazingly organised and professional she was. Liaising between all parties involved and keeping everything running smoothly.

Francesa & Roberto

Just to say a belated thank you for all your kind help throughout our wedding preparations. Your attention to detail and flexibility helped us to create the most perfect day of our lives. We had an incredible day making so many treasured memories. It was quite exhausting to be honest (!) but you took a lot of pressure off us which was super. Thank you again, best wishes.

Amelia & Oliver

Thank you so much for all of your support & hard work on the lead up to our wedding day & on the day itself!

We really appreciated all of the advice you were able to offer & for the recommendations.

Thanks again!

Charlotte & Alex

Thank you to Lydia and team for helping ensure a perfect wedding day for my wife and I. We, of course, highly recommend Lydia and her team as great assets for your wedding planning and on day coordination needs. They are professional, caring, and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again Love Lydia Weddings & Events.

Gessica & Chris

A HUGE Thank you for overseeing our wedding day, you made it all feel effortless, and I speak on behalf of MANY people when I say what an outstanding job you did. We had an incredible day - I never imagined it would be that good. I loved every minute! Much love

Siobhan & Mick

We had the most amazing day imaginable! Although initially wanting to plan the day ourselves, it soon became apparent that more meticulous and time-consuming planning was required. Thank goodness for Love Lydia! No attention to detail was spared, allowing us to enjoy our magical day to the fullest. Everyone was wonderful and made us feel very special.

Monica & John

Nothing was too much trouble, Lydia was always at hand to alleviate any worries and ensured that any last minute nerves were quickly set aside. Thank you so much. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Amy & Tim

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all that you did to help arrange the most perfect wedding reception for us. We wanted to create the quintessential English Country Summer Wedding in Devon and you did! You were so great to deal with all the way through and delivered everything you promised, from the dressing of the luxury marquee down to the finer details. Thank you for making the experience so easy and enjoyable and taking the stress out of organising our special day!
