Valuable Tips From the Wedding Planners
21 Nov 2017

Are you in charge of planning a wedding? Perhaps you’re the one getting married or maybe you’re the maid of honour and have agreed to help with the arrangements. There are a lot of details to think about when you’re planning a wedding so getting a few tips to get you started or keep you on track can be particularly helpful – check out our wedding planner tips!

#1 – Start With the Guest List

The number of friends, family and work colleagues will dictate many other details of the big day. If you’re planning on having a huge guest list, this will instantly rule out a number of venues you may have otherwise considered.

Start with your largest possible guest list, and if you need to make cuts, you can start crossing off names!

#2 – Thoroughly Research Your Date

The wedding date is incredibly important and you want to make sure that as many of your loved ones can attend. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to put a bit of research into your chosen date. If you have guests coming from out of town, there may be some dates that cause the price of hotel rooms to shoot up, such as bank holiday weekends and other holidays.

Find out if there are any big events going on in the local area as this could affect everything from traffic to hotel room availability.

#3 – Use Your Vendors’ Connections

Finding the right vendor can be challenging when planning a wedding, and for many people, it’s important to find one that they can trust with their big day. Your vendors are likely to have connections within the industry, and they’re likely to be more than happy to pass on names to you.

This can be a great way of finding reliable suppliers of everything from the flowers to the photographs.

#4 – Don’t Leave the Details Too Late

There are a lot of different details to the perfect wedding, so it can be a challenge to ensure you have everything sorted in good time. It may be a good idea to make a list in your early stages of planning of all the details that you need to remember and check them off as you go.

For example, you may want to hire a luxury car for your wedding, but it may not be as high up your list as the flowers or the venue. However, if you want to make sure that you get the car, date and time you’re looking for, it’s always safer to book as early as possible.
