You’ve seen your perfect dream venue online and it seems too good to be true – and it might be! Do your research and make sure that the venue is suitable for you and your guests. Is the space large enough to host everyone with extra room for dancing and a live band or DJ? Can you book on the dates you require and are there any other notable events in the area that may clash, create traffic or block hotel availability? Is your venue close enough that family and friends will be able to attend? The idea of a wedding abroad may seem exciting but bear in mind that this could potentially cut your guest list in half. Just be prepared to ask these types of questions along with others personal to you before you sign on the dotted line.
2. Get organized
From dresses to party favours, it can often seem like a daunting endless list to tackle. Make things easier for yourself by creating a folder with key information about meetings to attend, notes on vendors and any images that may be useful. Always keep your budget in mind and try to be as accurate as possible when estimating each cost.
3. Value word of mouth
If you have found the perfect local florist then chances are that they will have other connections to help you with other areas of wedding planning. Always ask for recommendations, discounts and for specific requests as early as possible. It’s always better to agree details early on than to try and battle it out once pricing has been finalized.
4. What's for dinner?
If you have ever been to a wedding in the past then you will understand the importance of creating the right menu for your guests. Food is a hot topic at any event so don’t rush in your decisions! You could have a classic sit down meal or forgo tradition entirely and opt for the modern approach of a buffet style with an evening hog roast. Guests enjoy seeing some theatre and a hog roast oven can provide this as well as serving up delicious food for all!
5. Ask for help and share responsibilities
The main thing to remember is that this is your big day so all final decisions are yours to make. Seek advice and help if you need it and don’t be afraid to share responsibilities with your partner or close family members. Wedding planning can be stressful but if you stick to the tips mentioned above and keep your vision as your focus, your day will be a great success – enjoy it!
