To be fair, when you are planning a wedding, there are a lot of things to remember. There are the invitations, the flowers, the food, the rings, the vows… Where to marry can be a sticking point, and the guest list is sure to present a few problems somewhere along the way. The entire list of things to do can seem endless and daunting.
What I didn’t realise is that, if you or your partner are marrying for the second (or further subsequent) time, there are even more things to remember than with most weddings. For example, I had no idea that the first step we would take when coming to plan our own wedding would be to prove that my fiancé is definitely divorced. It is a rather surreal place to begin planning the day of your dreams, though it is necessary for us, unfortunately. Another key part of wedding planning that I previously did not even know existed is a process called giving notice. Before you are able to marry, you must give at least 16 days’ notice at your local register office.
These are the more boring of the essential plans that need to be made in order to marry. The majority of the rest are very exciting, and can be aided by a visit to this wedding site directory. Not only does this site have a huge number of ideas on all things from dresses and shoes to catering and honeymoons, but there are a range of tools to help along the way, too. I particularly love the To-Do List, as I tend to forget where I’ve got up to in the planning stakes otherwise, and the budget tracker, which is very handy for making sure you don’t spend too much!
Their blog is also a great place to find information on real weddings, to compare and contrast and, ultimately, to remember that the key to a great wedding is a happy couple. Nothing else matters, really. Furthermore, there is a section on real weddings that is full of inspiration. I find that reading stories and seeing photographs of other weddings puts things into perspective – it doesn’t really matter which details you choose as the outcome is the same. You will end the day as a married couple whether you have a grand country wedding or a simple ceremony! Of course, it can be difficult to compromise on things that have been important to you for a long time. My advice would be to hold out for the things that you really feel you cannot do without and be sensible about the rest. The wedding will, after all, be just one day; it is the marriage that will last a lifetime.

I think they have really thought of everything for this website and am very excited about spending some more time browsing it myself. There are so many things to remember when planning a wedding that it can really help to have somewhere to store your ideas. Enjoy!
