If you've just gotten engaged, congratulations!

Wedding planning is so exciting but it can be difficult to know where to start.

From budgeting to decor, flowers to dresses, there's lots of things to plan and it can be overwhelming.

The average bride plans her wedding in 14 months, so with so much to do, breaking down your wedding to do list into monthly chunks can make everything seem that little bit more manageable.

To celebrate the return of the Wedding Journal Show to City West this January, they've put together the ultimate checklist to get you started.
