We take you to be our planner partner, we promise to guide you through the stress of having to plan your wedding, through the wahala and screaming, the budgeting and the bargaining, from the beginning to the end. (Hey! It’s never too early to start practicing your vows. Yaaay!)
Plan Your Wedding
The first thing we would like to ask you to do is relax, don’t fret! Take 3 deep breaths, in and out. Ready?
We know as a bride-to-be and recently engaged, these will be questions running through your mind. Such as:
- Now that I am engaged, what next?
- Where do I start planning the wedding?
- What is the very first task to do?
- What should I book first?
Team Naija Cupid Weddings would answer all these questions and more, we have put together a set of tools, guides and templates that you can download for free, right now to get you started.
Organization Is Key
Even if you are considering hiring a wedding planner to plan your wedding, you still need to stay organized and stay on top of the planning the entire time. We know you want everything to be detailed just like you have imagined it and nothing must go wrong, but there are too many details and issues for you to handle all on your own personally. You cannot afford to turn into a bridezilla, not when you are meant to be thinking happy thoughts and staying positive up until the wedding. So staying organized will go a long way in helping you keep your sanity and stay positive, right from the beginning up until you are walking down the aisle.
We are keen to help you in the aspect, so we have created several blog posts, pages and free ebooks to teach you and keep you on track. The major sections that will help you get started are listed below.
- Are you engaged yet? We love sharing stories and moments that would last a lifetime. Tell Us every single detail on how he proposed and we love pictures too.
- Now that you have shared your story with us, you and your spouse-to-be need to fill out this questionnaire for the wedding planning, to not only get both of you on the same page but also to help you pick your wedding style, design and budget.
- The page we have created has all our free eBooks, templates and checklists. You can print some of them out and share with your bridesmaids, relatives and even your wedding planner, if you have one.
- You should also work towards completing the wedding to-do lists.
- We have a printable wedding budget worksheet for you to download also before you start paying for any service, as this would help ensure that you are on the right track an you don’t overspend. Are you working with a budget and you want to know how much a small Nigerian Wedding would cost? Even if you are not on a budget and you want to go all out with no expense spared, you still need our wedding budget worksheet to guide you.
- We also have an EBook on examples of wedding budgets for 5 different Nigerian Weddings based on various guest list sizes.
- Are you just starting out or are you in the middle of your wedding planning?
