Getting engaged is sooo exciting, I mean...  a pretty ring was involved, you get to plan marrying your best friend and your pinterest board can finally be brought to life! You might find though, that a teeny bit of overwhelm can set in when it comes down to the actual nitty-gritty of planning. I know I 100% felt like this! Lucky for you, I have some tips from wedding planning experts Yasmin Harvey and Aysha Sun of Bridal Bible Weddings 

With shared expertise in web development, graphic design, social media specialising in the wedding sector, best friends Aysha and Yasmin saw an upward trend in brides wanting to plan their own weddings and bypassing wedding planners all together. Over the years Yasmin curated her own list of “go-to wedding suppliers” - the idea was to create the ultimate Online Wedding Directory,  giving our brides access to these top recommended suppliers.  

So ladies, if you have been overwhelmed when it comes to wedding planning and selecting wedding vendors, it helps to know that 1) you are not alone and 2) help is out there! 

I sat down with Ashya and Yasmin to talk all things wedding planning. Heck, I even got some tips for myself, since I have been sooo overwhelmed by the wedding planning process myself since being engaged! 

Hey ladies! First up, let us know what led you to this stage in your journey?

Yasmin owned and successfully operated a wedding planning franchise “Circle of Love” and over the years she curated her own list of “go-to wedding suppliers” - the idea was to create the ultimate Online Wedding Directory,  giving our brides access to these top recommended suppliers. Our site helps brides-to-be as they can feel overwhelmed when it comes to wedding planning and selecting wedding vendors. Our online wedding directory showcases top rated wedding suppliers by location, all in one place for efficiency and convenience. A one-stop-shop DIY wedding planning service!

What common mistake do you see brides make when starting to  plan their wedding?

Generally speaking, they are not even sure where to begin. Just doing a quick google search of wedding photographers in your area can be completely exhausting and overwhelming, not to mention confusing. How do you know these google found businesses are trusted in the community and will deliver the services advertised? By browsing and selecting approved suppliers on our online wedding directory they are confident with their choices and it makes the whole wedding planning process so much easier.  

What wedding trends are you seeing and loving in the bridal industry at the moment?

I’m absolutely loving the wild flowers along with the lace wedding dresses. The deep and natural warm tones too. It’s just the most perfect combo and looks absolutely stunning in photos.

What are your top three tips for brides in the beginning phases of planning their wedding?
