Where to start?

So after confirming the venue I had found earlier online was still available for the date - everyone was informed...

I used www.weddingvenues.com to locate venues in our desired area and narrowed it down to a couple online, once we confirmed the date, we set time to visit the venue before putting the deposit down.

We went to see the venue on my birthday, a couple of months later than when the wedding will be...but we fell in love, it is perfect!!

Next I set about planning a list of what to do to plan the wedding...

I will provide links to sources I have used, ratings, Q&A and  my experiences as we get closer to the dates!  As the one thing that I have found missing in the process is someone reliable to ask all these questions to, my mum is from a different generation and has a very different style to me, my girlfriends are all unmarried and probably sick of 'what you think of this' every 5 minutes...

Please get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions for me, it would be great to recieve them.
