Different Ways to Plan Your Wedding

So which one are you? Which way are you planning your wedding? Not what type of bride are you, this is more about the way your planning and styling your wedding. But I have included what type of bride I think goes with each planning type.

I have a feeling I already know which type you are but, read until the end to see which type you think you are!

I have created the names of these types of planners so bare with me!

So let's jump in!

'I really want to know which style you are doing!'


This is you, if you're jumping into the wedding planning all on your own having never done it before (like most of us), have no idea what you're doing but diving straight in, in the dark but are willing to find your way and work it out.

You're going on friends recommendations, on supplier recommendations, you're going to make loads of stuff and you're just going to work it all out as you go along. You're also happy for suppliers to tell you when and what happens next or at each stage.

Types of Brides: Bit Scatty, Laidback, Chilled, Easy-going, Go-with-the-flow


This is you, if you also don't have an idea on how to plan a wedding or where to start but you're the person who wants to know how to plan your wedding without just hoping it's all going to slot into place.

You are the person that's on YouTube watching videos and wanting to learn and understand more about how the wedding planning process works as you want to be accountable for each part, not make mistakes and make sure that it all runs smoothly.

You are buying small cost products to try and help the planning process, making it smoother and saving yourself time. You're trying to be a little bit more savvy with the process as you don't want to make costly mistakes. You want the knowledge on how to do it properly as you don't want the cost of having a wedding planner, you want to do this yourself!

You might then want a coordinator on the day to look after all those well made plans you've done to make sure your day is how you wanted it and planned it to be.

I have a feeling that this is YOU!

Types of Brides: Organised, Loves Spreadsheets and a To Do List


So this is you if, like the other two don't have a clue where to start or what to do, but you also don't have the time to learn and you don't like being in the dark or working out what to do.

You may have a very busy work life, or have children, or both and you're juggling 17,000 other different things and the fear of planning your own wedding is just too much for you.

You would prefer to hand this over to someone else to do for you and lead the way, you want guidance and recommendations, you want to make nice easy decisions but the leg work has been done for you and do the easy bits. Then you'll probably want to hire a wedding planner or ask a family member or friend to plan it for you.

Types of Brides: Either, Laidback & Chilled but just super busy or High Maintenance and wants someone to do it for them but will oversee everything!

So there are my three wedding planning planner types with the typical brides that I think fit into each category and believe me I've dealt with all types of brides!

I really want to know which style you are doing! So leave a comment on the blog, are you a 2 (Empowered Planner), or are you a bit of 1, 2 and 3?
