Overwhelmed by wedding planning? Let Yorkshire's Mindful Wedding Coach help...: Image 1 We ask Yorkshire's Mindful Wedding Coach your burning question...

Q After all the excitement of getting engaged, we're now totally lost when it comes to the planning. Can you give us a checklist of what we need to consider?

Firstly, take your time and don't panic. There's a lot to do but you don't want to get yourself overwhelmed. Here are some points to consider...

- Decide on your budget and allocate amounts to different aspects of the wedding.

- Think about your guest list. This will have an effect on your budget and the size of venue you'll need.

- Visit and choose a venue, then get your date booked.

- Book your ceremony or registrar for the same day.

- If you're having a civil ceremony, you can give notice at your local registry office from 12 months prior to the wedding.

- Send save-the-dates, if you wish.

- Start to get ideas for the theme, style and colour of your day.

- Source suppliers such as a photographer, florist, caterer etc and check they're available.

- If your dress is being made-to-order, you'll need at least six months lead time.

- Once all your main suppliers are booked, you can start to look at the finishing touches.

- Send your invitations two or three months before the wedding.
