Getting hitched is wonderful – that is, until the actual planning starts and you see just how much meticulous planning it takes. If you are about to tie the knot, you obviously want your big day to be perfect and memorable. Never fear: given below are a few things that you need to keep in mind going into this. Pay attention to them, and you will find that wedding planning is easier than you thought it would be.
Where Are You Getting Married?
This may be the first question on your mind, and you might be jumping at the thought of a garden wedding or a beach wedding, but you need to consider a few things first. How many people you want to attend the wedding, the time of day you want to have it and the budgetary restrictions you have will obviously influence your decision. Good function venues are ideal for you if you do not want to burden yourself with maintenance and getting the place ready ahead of time – these places are specialized in events, and with one or two discussions with the staff, you will get things done with minimum effort on your part. You can decide on payment and choose which one to go for – there is guaranteed at least two places around town that can service you this way; you just have to look.
Who Are You Inviting?
The people that you want to be there when you vow each other your love is a list you have to make carefully. For this, ask someone outside of the two of you to moderate, and list people in order of most important to least important. Then, depending on the number of guests you are expecting (asking for an RSVP before a certain date will help you get a final count), can decide which venue hire Newcastle and make arrangements for payment accordingly.
What Are You Eating?
As is with any event, food is something that is of utmost importance – when it’s your wedding, you must make sure the food is in keeping with the theme (if you have one) and that the cake coordinates with the bridal retinue and the wedding’s décor colours. If you are having the wedding at an outside place (which is recommended), you need only to inform the chefs and staff of your theme, decide with them what food you want and settle payments accordingly. You will have to sit down with the cake makers and discuss what you want your cake to look like as well.
Once these logistics are looked into, the invitations can be sent and you can focus on each other – the dress and the suit, what the retinue will be wearing etc. It is so much easier to get the boring things out of the way before you focus on the minor details, and the above given list of things will no doubt make things easier for you.
