TANYA Liddell is pretty indecisive when it comes to planning her own wedding.

But she is so good at planning them for other brides, she has been named as one of the top three wedding planners in Queensland.

Ms Liddell's Ipswich-based business Sassaffair Events is one of three finalists in the 2014 Wedding and Events of Australia state awards.

The former corporate events planner has been planning weddings for less than two years after taking a leap of faith to start her own business.

She said it was amazing to be short listed for the awards after such a short time in the industry, with her business named a finalist in both the Decoration and Styling and Wedding Planning categories.

Ms Liddell will find out on July 20 whether she has won either category during a special event on the Gold Coast.

Decorations and Styling awards the look of a wedding such as colour choice, while Wedding Planning is based on interaction with the couple and bringing the final wedding together.

Ms Liddell said it took up to 18 months to plan a typical wedding, though it has been done in only three.

Her own favourite styling choice is a modern mix between industrial and chic styling, and one that she has chosen to incorporate into her own wedding next year.
