Happy Sunday! Mr Trulove and I are in the office today as we have something very special launching imminently, for all of the fabulous suppliers that we connect with at French Wedding Style.
The launch and the work that I do with my private mentoring clients, has got me to thinking about when a round peg will not fit into a square hole… Whether you are a wedding supplier or a bride planning her wedding, when it comes to projects such as launching a new venture or setting up your wedding budget, you will start with a certain amount of funds.
These funds are your round peg, what you have available to achieve your goals or dream wedding. Whilst I am all about dreaming big, there is also a practicality needed for the journey of how your round peg funds are going to fit into your goals.
If you are working with limited funds, then aiming and contacting exclusive venues in peak areas during peak season is always going to be a challenge. Instead write down your 5 non-negotiables for your wedding and work from that.
Want to get married in Provence, then this is a very large area, so look for weekday availability, self catering options and non peak holiday season rentals. To make those wedding budgets go further also check out our Wedding Offers page and sign up for our newsletter.
You can truly manifest the wedding of your dreams, through realistic planning and a bit of lateral thinking!
