It’s one of the most important days of your life, so it’s crucial that you make the most of it and you don’t look back and wish that you had done things slightly differently. So here are 10 things that you should include in your wedding planning for your big day.
– Spend time getting ready in style with your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Pop the cork and open the bubbles and enjoy every minute getting ready together, don’t panic about last minute details, get someone else to deal with anything that needs to be done.
– Gifts for your wedding party and mums of the bride and groom.. There is no doubt that during the planning process for your big day you will rely on your friends and mums for help and support. A small gift will show them how much you have appreciated them and will mean so much.
– Thinking about the time of day you have your ceremony. This is especially important for the photographs that will be your lasting memories of your special day.. If you are getting married during the autumn or winter this is especially important as the daylight will fade a lot earlier than the summer months. Also the sooner that you have your ceremony and get married, then the sooner that you can spend time with your new spouse and party! What’s the point in spending most of the day apart?
– Delegate one of the groomsmen to be in charge of organising the guests so everyone knows where they should be during the ceremony and at the wedding breakfast. It is also a good idea for them to help organise the groups that you have already planned for your photographs.
– When planning dresses think about the time of year and potential weather. If you have an outside space for any part of your wedding (including photographs) then you don’t want to be shivering all day.
– Entertainment for children. If you have little ones coming to your wedding it can be a really long day for them so consider booking a children’s entertainer who can keep them happy and give parents an opportunity to celebrate with you..
– Having some time alone with your new husband/wife. The whole day will pass in an absolute blur and you might look back and realise you actually haven’t had a single moment alone all day..
– Comfortable shoes. An absolute must for the bride. Nothing worse than sore feet.. Save your heels for the ceremony and make sure you have something flat to slip on during the evening or when walking around having photographs.
– Do you need a videographer. Don’t look back and wish you had captured the moment you say “I do” on film. Plan and book ahead.
– Allocating the right amount of time for your wedding photography. Your wedding photos will be the lasting element of your wedding day, they will be treasured and handed down to future generations. Make sure that you budget sufficient time within your day to get gorgeous images that capture your special day.
