Our Guide to the Perfect Wedding
Planning your Perfect Day
At Garter Wedding Photography, we understand that every wedding is unique, as is every couple who are getting married, each bride and groom will have their own ideas for what makes a wedding and how it will be special to them. It can be exciting when it comes to organising everything, from big decisions to the finer details.
Wedding planning can be stressful and decisions which once may have sounded exciting, can become a problem and something that you may start to panic about. But don’t worry, Garter Wedding Photography has you covered, take a look at our helpful guide which covers four important areas to consider when planning your wedding.
Timing will play a big part throughout your wedding planning process and is everything when it comes to your big day, as well as the big day itself. From selecting and booking your dream venue to the timings throughout the day, timing is a very important part of your wedding.
Having involved friends and family is also good as when you have a good network around you, this can make things easier as they’ll help with the planning and organising. If you know people who have been married before themselves, this is great as they’ll have experience and be able to share tips with you.
Appearance tends to be one of the most important things for the bride, this will cover a range of things from deciding how to wear your hair to makeup as well as the dress. Vanity plays a big role in wedding preparations which can also add extra pressure.
It’s a good idea to make sure that you prepare well in advance, especially if the way you look is important to you, this will give you all the time you need to prepare yourself so you can make sure that you feel good on your big day.
It’s important that you take some time out with your other half and create a list of your guests to help you decide who to invite, then get the invitations sent out. Once you’ve sent your invitations you may have had a few responses or you may have not, but it’s important to not take these responses as gospel.
People can be quite unorganised and forgetful, so they may have forgotten to save the date, however, but just because someone hasn’t responded to your invitation, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t coming, they may have just forgot or may have received the invite.
Another big part of the day is how you arrive at your wedding and your wedding transport will be involved in the success of your special day. You will need to consider different types of transport to suiting the theme and budget of your wedding. The earlier you book your wedding transport, the more organised you will be, making it a much smoother, hassle free planning process than what happens when you leave things to the last minute.
