Wedding Tips and Ideas for the Perfect Day

wedding tips and ideas

Planning your big day is a wonderful journey that culminates in a union of two people who are joined in Love. We take the hassle out of it with our best wedding tips and ideas to make sure you have a wonderful day!

1. Start getting organised as early as possible & stay grounded.

Determine your budget and consider the main elements of your wedding. Consider each item and weigh the costs – is there anything that you might be able to work around? Do you have friends that could help you? A lot of us already know someone that is a photographer, a baker and maybe even a wedding planner!  You’ll be surprised with the results. Make sure you don’t commit to too much DYI as it will only add to your stress – limit these and learn when to leave to the pros.

As the Venue more or less drives the date, make a list of the potential options and arrange a visit as soon as you can – this will give you an idea of what you have to work with. Check them out online in advance and write down any questions that come to mind as you might forget on the day. Once you have decided on the location, everything else will start to fall into place.

2. Do research on your suppliers.

Go online and do your homework. A lot of decisions will have to be made and the more information you have, the easier it will be. Contact a few suppliers, get prices and quotes and compare them.

Do you want guests sitting around during the time they’re supposed to be dancing? Didn’t think so. Get a DJ who knows how to read and work a crowd. Most bands and DJ’s will let you when it’s possible to hear them in action. Make sure you to go online and read reviews about them.

As choosing your cake will also be one of them – have fun and try loads of flavours. Most bakers will offer you a taste of all their sweet delights.

3. Delegate as much as you can!

No wedding would take place without a groom/partner. Make sure to share responsibilities and involve them in every step of the way. Once you have finalised your bridal party, assign them different tasks for the big day like drop off place cards &  table plan to reception coordinator or to help you with any wedding rehearsal arrangements.

4. Stay grounded and keep within budget

It is extremely easy to get carried away and overspend on what is already a very expensive day. Finalise your guest list as soon as possible in order to calculate the cost and assign a budget for items like your dress, photographer, flowers, groom suits etc.  Always keep this in mind and don’t get carried away – it is all about spending the rest of your life with the love of your life, not the debt of your life!

Get Insurance – the basic packages will cover you for any unexpected hiccups such as damage to bridal attire, cancellations,  wedding gifts, wedding rings, videographer/photographer, failure of supply. If you encounter any of these, the headache will definitely be less severe if you know you are covered for the cost.

5. Be original!

This does not have to cost money, it can be something as simple as having the bridal party come into the church dancing to your favourite tune, incorporating something fun and quirky into your wedding favours or wedding invitations. At the end of the day, you should put finishing touches that represent what the two of you enjoy together. We’re loving these ideas, especially this wishing stone guest book, so much fun!
