Choosing the perfect venue is only a small piece of creating that special day. And there are so many things to remember when planning a wedding.
Here’s a list of 10 things people often forget (and how to avoid them) when planning a wedding.
1.Sunsets and photographers – a match made in heaven
Sunset is known as the ‘golden hour’ for photographers. For that magical wedding shot, book a photographer for a sunset photo shoot.
The photographer takes the photos and the photography captain ensures the right people are in the right photos. Having a friend or family member in charge who knows the guests can make the photographer’s job easier.
3.Go-to gals and guys
Every wedding needs a ‘go-to gal/guy’ to be the first-point-of-contact for the wedding vendors, musicians and organisers. This takes the pressure off the bride and groom.
4.It’s not called mood lighting for nothing
Lighting is everything. Think about the mood you want for the big day and use the right lights to help create it.
5.That extra mile
It might seem logical to provide 100 seats for 100 guests. But remember, not everyone likes to sit right next to each other. By adding extra seats, wedding guests will have more freedom to choose where they sit and who with.
6.Write a do-not-play list for the DJ
You’ve heard of a wedding playlist. But having a not-to-play list could save from a surprise song playing while out on the dance floor.
7.Don’t forget the get-a-way car
Brides and grooms sometimes forget to book a car to get them from the reception to their hotel, flight or post-reception destination. Waiting for an Uber in a wedding dress and tux, might not be the smoothest end to the night.
8.Look after the wedding dress and tux
Ask a friend or family member to be on wedding dress/tux duty post-reception. This can be helpful if you’re leaving for your honeymoon the next day and the wedding clothes need to be dropped to the cleaners.
9.Gift, décor and personal items gatherer
Have a family member or friend gather up any gifts, décor and personal items at the end of the night to make sure they make it safely home.
10.Eat food and drink water
It’s a busy day with so much to plan and think about. Remember two of the most important things to do on the day is to eat food and drink plenty of water.
