* Getting Hitched? What Not To Forget!

When we are in the throes of planning a wedding, we can lose sight of what’s most important. You can become so bogged down in the detail, thinking about the playlist for the Motown band you hired and the vegan dessert for your cousin twice removed that you can forget about your wedding transport, flowers and evening catering. While your big day can leave you feeling flustered, stressed and panic-stricken, don’t lose sight of the fact that this is your day and you should enjoy it. Take a look at these major aspects of your day that you shouldn’t overlook.

Save The Date

Before you do anything, you should be sending save the date cards to your nearest and dearest. It doesn’t matter whether you have finalised a date six months from now or two years from now, get those save the date cards posted. By doing this, there is no excuse for family or friends to find they have to attend another event.

At the same time, you need to consider the sorts of invitations you want to send out a little closer to the time. With your wedding invites, try and select a bespoke and personalised design rather than the generic shop bought. If you love all things vintage, go for lace embellishments and a 1960s font. If you are a pair of eco-bunnies, select invitations made from recycled materials and encourage potential guests to send an email or text RSVP to save on paper.


By vetting your guests, you should be able to work out how many vegans, people with nut allergies and folk who are lactose intolerant are attending your wedding. Employ the services of a top quality catering team who can take the worry of dietary requirements out of your hands. By outsourcing this particular requirement of your day, you’re free to concern yourself with more pressing details such as the DJ or the seating plan.


It goes without saying that the venue you select is one of the most important aspects of your big day. While you definitely won’t forget this vital part of the ceremony, you may allow yourself to get waylaid with other elements of your nuptials before you settle on a church, a luxury hotel, the register office or even the local picture house. Leave it too long, and they may be booked for your chosen date. Put the venue at the top of your wedding to-do list and get it booked as soon as possible.


It’s not up to you to sit people as they enter the church and you don’t want to be the one guiding people to their seats for your wedding breakfast. Ask family and friends to take on minor roles throughout your day. This way, you won’t constantly be worried that the logistics aren’t all going according to plan and you can simply enjoy your day with your partner.

There will be times during your wedding preparations where you will be a tad more stressed than you’d care to admit. However, follow this advice and these moments will be fewer and farther between, and you’ll be ready to enjoy the best day of your life.
