About to start organising your wedding? Perhaps you're mid-way through it and overcome by how much choice you have for the flowers. Or maybe you're at the final hurdle about to walk down the aisle.

Whatever place you're at planning-wise, we guarantee you'll have felt/will experience the following stages that lead up to the ceremony.

And to anyone who's not even remotely considering getting married, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

1. We’re getting married!

(Look at us so smug and in love)

2. It’s just going to be a big fun party – 140 people for a sit down meal, a 40s jazz band and cocktail waiters.

LET'S INVITE EVERYONE WE KNOW.

3. A marquee costs HOW MUCH?

4. We’re going for a more small and intimate vibe now

(Say goodbye to that six-foot swan ice sculpture)

5. We’re making a lot of the food ourselves

6. DIY flower arranging? SURE!

7. The bridesmaids have already chosen their outfits

8. The ushers want to wear WHAT?

10. Wedding planning is going well until husband-to-be says he's forgotten to book the band

It's not like this was his ONLY job or anything

________________________________________________________

11. But you've got your hen-do coming up, which is going to be really fun.

AND you'll get to do the single ladies dance for the last time

________________________________________________________

12. Just try not to think about what he might be up to...

________________________________________________________

13. It's OK though, you're on the home stretch...

________________________________________________________

14. Before you know it, it's 24 hours till W-Day

________________________________________________________

15. And all that hard work has paid off
