The key to a successful wedding that’s memorable for all the right reasons is planning and organisation. There’s so much to arrange and it all has to go like clockwork on the day and if you haven’t arranged a big event before, then the task will naturally be a daunting one. But with the guidance of many people who’ve made their living out of bringing off fantastic weddings, you can avoid any of the major mistakes and mishaps.

Choosing the Dress

The only thing more important than choosing the venue is choosing the right dress. Trends change and styles come in and out of fashion. Your safest bet always has to be to choose something classic and timeless. Choosing a dress that’s a classic is a wise decision because it proves that the style stands the test of time and looks good on people with your bodyshape. These links should help you choose the best dress to fit you if you’re long and lovely or cutely curvy.

Discovering Caterers

One of the most memorable things that you’ll have will be the cuisine. Get it right and everyone will remember their perfect meal, get it wrong though, and nobody will be able to forget. The key to choosing the right caterer is finding someone who can provide the food that you want, in the numbers that you need. Of course that depends on knowing exactly what you want from the start. But these sites have great advice for the kinds of questions you should ask your chef and what to look for in a party caterer.

Picking The Right Photographer

Capturing the events of the day is incredibly important. You’ll be so caught up in the wedding itself that it will all be a blur, so you’ll want to look back over photos of your wedding for many years to come. Getting an experienced, competent, professional photographer is key as you’re relying on them to independently do their job perfectly first time because there is no chance of doing the wedding again if they leave their lens cap on.

Choosing a DJ or Wedding Singer

While the ceremony is important and unique to you, not many people, beside you and your other half, are going to remember it. On the other hand, people will remember the reception for years. That’s why getting the music just right is so important. You’d be mad to simply call around local entertainers and book them based only on their price and availability, so what should you be looking for when hiring music?

Deciding On Your Wedding Ring

A hundred years or more ago there wouldn’t have been much to choose from in terms of wedding rings. A plain gold band was all you would need and many people today still love the weight and simplicity of a traditional gold ring. However, things always change and there are many more choices available today than ever before. You can choose not only from all sorts of shapes and profiles, but which metal or metals you want to use too.

Help With Hair and Makeup

You’ll probably have more eyes on you, and more photos taken of you, on your wedding day than you will on any other day for the rest of your life. That being so, you’ll naturally want to look your absolute best. Your wedding day isn’t the day to take a chance with an experimental look or even to try doing it yourself when you’ve already got so many other things to occupy your mind.

Picking a Theme

Gone are the days when you had a choice of two wedding types. When you only had the choice of a church / religious wedding or a registry office the choice was easy: one, or the other. But those days are over and your theme gives you the chance to stamp you and your partner’s personalities onto your wedding. The traditional white wedding with a sit-down dinner or buffet is still a popular and beautiful option, but most couples want to have a wedding that really speaks about them and their personalities.

How to Pick a Honeymoon

If you could choose anywhere in the world to take a honeymoon, where would you go? A honeymoon is more than just a holiday, it’s a way of taking a break from all the normal stresses of life, particularly those that have been incurred in the run-up to your wedding, and enjoying some time together alone. But how do you get the most out of your honeymoon? Since it’s not like an ordinary holiday, you probably won’t want to go on tourist excursions, but rather tailor a unique experience. And to get it right, like all things, preparation is key.
