Congratulations!! You are marrying the love of your life and now you get to plan the wedding of the century.
Wedding planning can seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be! The Bliss Method™ is a 4-phased system that walks you through the planning, delegation, coordination and direction of your wedding. The free timelines you see online are out-dated and just do not work anymore. This method will help you whether you are planning in 2 years or 2 weeks. Let me show you how easy it can be.
Think of your planning as if you were building a house:
Phase 1: "Pure Bliss" - This is when you should pick out a plot for your house. So with a wedding, you need to do your guest list FIRST. You need to know how big it will be before you "build" your wedding. This is also the time you set your budget, talk about who is paying what, date, and overall theme of the wedding.
Phase 2: "Overwhelming Bliss" - The framing of your house. This is where you book all of your vendors (caterers, venue, photographer, etc...). Start looking at wedding gowns (they take 6-8 months generally), confirm the budget and send out save the date cards if applicable.
Phase 3: "Express Your Bliss" - This is the fun part! Decorations and making it yours! When you come up with decorations, favors & cute photography poses. Unfortunately, Brides want to start here and that is what causes problems. This is where you do decorations, themes, favors, invitations - all of the creative bits that people will remember. But you shouldn't do this until the other phases are complete. Pinterest becomes your friend in this phase :0)
Phase 4: "Countdown to Bliss" - No one is in bliss anymore at this point. They want in the "house" already but lots of details need to be taken care of first. This is where you are getting all the tiny details in place, like who has the marriage license, how is everyone getting to and from the church, who is taking stuff from the church to the reception, how are the Bride & Groom getting to the bridal suite.... Things that can get you stressed and overwhelmed.
These phases all work together to help you plan your wedding "Blissfully Simple™". Sometimes you can get too bogged down in what you read on the internet. Don't let that overwhelm you. Stick to the 4 phases in order and it will not only be easy, but make total sense.
Weddings are meant to be savored. Don't get caught up in what you see on TV or in movies. This is the day you marry your soul mate. Don't lose sight of that. This is all about Bliss & it will happen.
