Learn some wedding planning tips before you say I do!
There’s nothing like the thought of having to say I do that’ll send shivers down your spine. The thought of having to walk down the aisle and see everyone staring at you is enough to put some people off. Most of us want to get married, and we love the thought of being with the person that we love for the rest of our lives. But comfortably getting to that point is not as easy as it used to be. There’s plenty of things that you need to do before saying I do. You need to be so prepared that you think about nothing but the love for your partner during the day. You don’t want to spend the day rushing around making sure everyone is happy and everything is running how it should do. So, we’re going to show you some of the things to say before saying I do, so that you can have the most magical wedding day.
Bridesmaids & Groomsmen
Your entourage of bridesmaids and groomsmen is either going to be absolutely huge, or you'll have a small party of people following closely behind you. They’re the people who are going to support your decisions throughout, and basically just go with the flow of what you’re doing for the day. But there’s a few things that you’ll have to do to ensure they’re happy with the whole day, and the first is picking what style dress and suit you want them to have. For the females, it’s more about style and colour. An olive green bridesmaid dress might suit one girl, whereas another finds it horrible. So you start to see one big problem before you say I do, and that’s keeping everyone else happy. The best way to do so is letting them have an input into what they’re going to be wearing, and doing all day!
Wedding Favours & The Food
The wedding favours are the little bit of the day that everyone gets to take home with them. They’re called wedding favours, but they’re more like a little gift for everyone who has managed to turn up. There are so many design ideas to look at on the internet, but try and make it personal to you, or perhaps personal to the guest. It depends how much effort you want to put into this, but it is nice for your guests to go home with something great to remember the day by.
The Venue & The Photographer
These two go hand in hand. Once you’ve secured the venue, you need to find out about how many they’ll allow, where cars can pull up, and where the best location is going to be for the photos afterwards. Working closely with the venue and finding everything out from the get go will prevent any dramas. There are always reviews on the internet to guide you towards a good photographer as well! You want someone who is going to be able to capture the magic of the day that you’re having!
