Through planning my own wedding five years ago and talking with so many brides-to-be who are in the midst of planning theirs, I know the whole process can be extremely overwhelming. There are so many details to think of, from when to send save-the-dates to how you can plan for the actual flow of the wedding day. It always helps to have a wedding planner and/or a day-of coordinator, but I wanted to give an additional resource to my brides to help them think about their wedding day and the time in-between.
I had a goal earlier this year to create a bridal guide, and for awhile I was stuck - there are some beautiful templates that can be fully customized and some amazing examples of what you can do with it. The examples were so great that I began to spin my wheels, trying to decide exactly what to put in there. Finally I set myself a deadline and got it done!
So without further ado, here's a sneak peek at the 2016 Maria Grace Photography Bridal Guide. There are pages on how to plan for your engagement session, what a first look is (and why I always encourage one), and an ideal timeline for your wedding day. In addition, I've included some amazing resources to help plan your marriage as well as your wedding day - because ultimately, that's the most important thing anyways!
Of course, no bridal guide can have every single detail or cover every question, but I worked my hardest to answer the most common questions and provide the most helpful tips and tricks I could think of. I can't wait to send these out in the upcoming months to all my new 2016 brides. Happy wedding planning!
