Have you popped the question? Whether you’re a bride or groom, you’re going to want to make sure that your wedding is the best day of your life. In this article, we will go into how to plan the perfect wedding day that you will remember forever!
Pick the venue
There are so many incredible venues out there – so it’s important to have a serious initial think about what is on offer in your local area and most importantly, what fits your budget. Do you dream of getting married in a castle? Or would you prefer a hotel venue room?
The ceremony venue is important too. Do you want to get married in a religious venue? This may depend on yourself and your partners – and your families’ – religion, and is something that you should navigate early on.
Make sure that you and your partner have a discussion about choosing the venue when you begin wedding planning. Calculate what you want to spend on the venue and use this budget to look for venues in your range. Make sure that you are realistic with your budget at this early stage!
Say yes to the dress (or the tux!)
Buying wedding clothes is the next most important thing! Whether you are getting married in a dress or a tuxedo, make sure that you sort this out early on. Many brides and grooms go to multiple different stores before they find the perfect outfit for them!
Hire a photographer
Your photographer will be one of the most important people on your big day – so make sure that you hire yours early on. They can actually get booked up very far in advance! You might also want to think about getting a videographer, who can capture all the small moments of your big day.
Sort the music out
A wedding isn’t a wedding without music! Most wedding couples immediately think of hiring a DJ for their wedding, but you could consider other music options too. For instance, you can hire live bands from tailored entertainment or you could book a tribute singer! Make sure that you book quite early on, as dedicated wedding singers will be booked up in advance!
Order your cake
The last big thing to organise is your cake. Wedding couples nowadays have all sorts of different types of cakes, from traditional tiered sponges to rainbow cakes! Whatever you fancy, make sure that you get your order in about three months in advance. You can speak with a specialist cake maker if you aren’t sure what you want!
Find final suppliers
Other suppliers that you will need to organise are florists, caterers, and decoration companies. Make sure that you don’t forget these in the lead-up to your big day!
Planning a wedding is a daunting prospect, but it’s a really enjoyable one that couples love! If you follow these steps, you’ll be at ease with the process.
