When it comes to planning something, anything, maybe you’re more of a big picture kind of person. You have the vision and you have the ideas but you don’t really do the details, they’ll work themselves out. Or it might be that you’re a perfectionist and every small detail must be worked out in plenty of time and given due consideration. Whatever your style of planning, there’s no better time to put your skills to the test than with planning for a wedding.
You may have a great big picture of the type of wedding you want and the style of your big day, you may have some thoughtful little ideas that will make your guests feel like a million dollars but that list is going to keep on growing so you’ll need to start in plenty of time if you want either scenario to work well.
In this blog we take a look at a few considerations that you’ll need to plan for and some options to consider:
If you’re someone who likes to hand over the responsibility of the actual organising to someone else after laying out what kind of wedding you’re after, then a venue that comes with a planner is going to be your ideal scenario. If you couldn’t care less what type of chair covers are used as long as there are chair covers, then this will tick all your boxes.
Meet with your planner, run through the guest numbers, the kind of food and wine you like and let them get the ball rolling for you. They’ll be able to advise you on how the day will run, especially if you’re holding a ceremony on site too, and arrange your table decorations and flowers for you. They will probably even be able to recommend a photographer and wedding DJ should you require it.
On the other hand, if you’re on a tighter budget or just really enjoy the idea that every aspect of your wedding comes from you, then somewhere like a marquee is not only more affordable but a blank canvas for you to work on.
You’ll be able to style it just the way you like, set out table decorations with that homemade touch and produce just the right ambience that reflects you and your partner.
Take time to research your entertainment for the night, whether that’s friends who will play for you or whether you choose to spend your money on a wedding band from https://www.alivenetwork.com/hirelivemusic/wedding_bands_in.asp?area=Surrey
It’s your wedding done your way so choose a venue that appeals to your level of organisational skills, the decor that sums you both up as a couple and a band or DJ that will have your guests singing and dancing along all night as you celebrate the best day of your life, done your way in your style. It will certainly be a wedding to remember.
What was your wedding theme? Would you choose it again or go with something different?
