    Wedding Planning – Preparing for your wedding

    Getting married is about the most important decisions you will make in your life, and with it comes the responsibility of many other decisions, such as when and where, who to invite and countless other things down to décor and wedding favours.

    Whilst there are many different things to prepare, we have created a short checklist of things you can do in advance to ensure everything runs smoothly on your big day. The elopement weddings have become popular in recent years, and these usually have a very short planning period. However, there are still things that can be considered when planning this type of wedding.

    Preparing for Your Wedding

    Plan your budget

    This is probably one of the most important elements of planning a wedding, since it is what will dictate the type of wedding you can have. Whether it is a modest, low key affair or something a little flashier, you will need to allocate fund to different areas, such as venue hire. Once the venue has been hired, you will still need to think about some finer details.

    Choose your tunes

    You and your partner may not always agree on music taste. Or you will hopefully have a song that reminds you of each other – ‘your song’. Whatever the case, think about what music you’d like to have played and how you will get it played! What will be your first dance, and what will the entertainment music be like?

    Finalise the food and flowers

    Whether you’ve been planning this for months or just days, you will need to know where and what you and your guests are going to be eating. To a degree, this element is dictated by budget, and also by personal taste. If you and your friends are big fans of pie and ale, then there is no reason this won’t be your theme for food and drink.

    Wedding favours

    It’s become customary for the happy couple to thank their guests by way of wedding favours. This is something to commemorate your special day and can range from monogrammed stationary to these personalised miniatures.

    Finalise photography

    You should have already booked a photographer as soon as you knew what date the wedding was set for. If you have opted for an elopement wedding, the venue providers should have some good contacts for photographers in the area. Make sure you talk through the type of shots you are looking for, so everyone knows what to work towards.
