We launched Wedshed almost 10 years ago with little more than a big idea and a suitcase full of ambition.

To our surprise, that turned out to be enough.

At some point along this journey, we came to realise the imposter syndrome we’d felt when we first entered the wedding industry had dissipated. Thousands of engaged couples come to to us annually for wedding planning advice, and not only do we love this special milestone, we’ve got so much hands-on experience on both sides of the coin (planning weddings and managing wedding businesses) that we realised it should probably take a different, tangible form.

Enter: Get Wed – the best wedding planning book in the market.

We’ve distilled a wealth of insights – from ourselves and our community – into the wedding planning process into one meaty (and beautifully inclusive) book. Across 392 pages, we’ve shared e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g you need to know to plan a wedding with full hearts, no regrets. Not to inundate couples, but rather to demystify the process and unpack all the “stuff” (and some of the fluff).

Some examples:

  • Setting your priorities
  • Traditions
  • The venue
  • Budgets
  • Your guest list
  • Wedding vendors
  • Food and drink
  • Styling
  • Your wedding ceremony
  • DIY vs. done-for-you
  • Vows
  • Speeches
  • Sustainability
  • Music
  • Weather
  • Wellbeing
  • Wedding registry and gifts
  • Kids at weddings
  • Creating a timeline for the day
  • MC duties
  • Photography considerations
  • Official things
  • Recovery party
  • Honeymoon

Our ultimate hope is for Get Wed to provide couples with the guidance, clarity, direction, inspiration, cheerleading, courage and dash of lightness they need to plan a wedding that says ‘this is us’.
