Hints & Tips for your Wedding Planning

As soon as you have decided to set a date for your Wedding, start putting together a scrapbook and fill it with magazine cuttings on anything that catches your eye.

This can then be taken to supplier meetings (such as Florists, Caterers, Venue decorators etc) where these ideas can form the basis of the first meeting and be expanded on, to reflect your likes and dislikes.

Make sure that you can dance in your wedding dress - A magnificent train will look stunning at the ceremony, but may not work quite as well on the dance floor.

Organise your Wedding so that the younger guests are well looked after. After the ceremony and reception, many children start to get bored at a grand dinner, so if the budget allows, create a separate area where they can enjoy a fun meal and be entertained. Then they can join the after dinner dancing.

When chatting to your photographer about your wedding, do not forget to let them know if there are any special details you would like him or her to capture. For example, A close up of your heirloom ring, a particular view from the churchyard, or maybe a special guests place card.

Ensure that your photographer is well briefed on your specific requirements for the formal photographs following the ceremony, so that guests are not hanging around for ages, whilst these are being taken.

Appoint a member of both families and give them the responsibility of organising the various guest groups required for these photographs.

Speeches during the Wedding Breakfast should be short! Encourage all speech makers to rehearse and time their speeches to adhere to your timetable, not theirs!
