One’s wedding is the most beautiful day of their lives. Most brides use event management companies or wedding planners. However some prefer to do everything by themselves. Even do they know some aspects of organising an event not everybody is an expert of everything.
Getting it right
If you are planning to organise and plan your wedding all by yourself make sure you have all the contacts and suppliers that you can get. Also ensure that you have a group of people who can help with the planning. It could be your wedding party comprising of bridesmaids, and members of your family. All these members must have tasks assigned to them and those notified to them well in advance. You can broadly categorize several groups of tasks such as dress – for the bride and bridesmaids – , food, venue, any religious activities, wedding bands Sydney and music to name a few.
Little things that you might forget
Prepare a place for the whole party to stay the day before. Make sure you have enough light to do the make u and get dressed in the morning. if the event is in the evening you might have some time to get prepared, but still, do not take any chances with that. Some might imagine it all easy when the actual reception is not until six or seven in the evening, but remember you need to get dressed and shoot some photos before the natural light fades. Cameramen like to use the natural light rather than their equipment light. So you must be prepared in advance time for it all. Having a playlist prepared prior is also important. All these, you and your spouse need to discuss and decide, without being one-sided choices.
Budgeting the event
You might not realise it but a wedding has not only the venue, food and the clothing costs. At the end of it all you might have spent more than you had in your hand and hence had to borrow from somebody. Therefore always make sure that you make a budget and when you do include everything such as transportation and car hire,wedding music bands, door gifts you have prepared, honeymoon costs, extra hours pay to the venue etc. Having someone with a clip board and some cash is important for any emergency that could occur. An agenda person must also be there to take things through and start the next item without being reminded by a guest. Many things could go wrong with the stress and haste in a day like a wedding. It is hence important to have a robust plan and assign some trustworthy people to carry it on.
