As any bride will attest, the stress of planning a wedding is unrivaled. If you are a going to be a blushing bride this year, you will no doubt be searching in earnest to find your perfect wedding must haves. The issue for a lot of brides is that they don’t know where to start. This guide will give you practical, and useful, information on where to start planning your dream wedding.
The venue of your wedding is paramount. Think about what kind of ceremony you would like to have. Do you want a big, white wedding complete with a church, or would you like something more low-key in a hotel or registry office? There are a plethora of beautiful wedding destinations for you to choose from, at home and abroad, so think carefully about where you want to hold the most important day of your life.
People underestimate the importance of good quality invitations. Bear in mind that your invitations are your guests first peek into your impending nuptials. Wedding invites can be adorned with your theme and wedding colours to make them even more personal to you and your partner. What is more, you can choose from gorgeously bespoke designs from a wide range of vendors.
Think about your requirements. You choose from quirky vintage, elegant and classy or cool and contemporary. What is more, you can seek the expert opinion of a wedding stationery vendor to ensure that your invitations are truly beautiful and match up to your very specific requirements.
Choosing the perfect wedding invitation can be a difficult task, so do request that you have samples sent to you so that you can vet them accordingly. You may be charged a small fee for this service, but it will give you peace of mind knowing that you have made the right decision for your big day.
Choosing the perfect dress can be an ordeal. For many brides, they have the perfect dress in mind even before they are engaged! Our advice is to try on a wide range of dresses with some that you would never normally wear. Different styles suit different body shapes, so go wild in the wedding boutique and try on every style of dress imaginable. You are sure to find something that you love by doing so.
Food and Drink
Feeding your guests is a big part of your wedding celebrations. Choosing what style of food and drink to for can be difficult.
Some brides like to opt for finger sandwiches and tea, which is wonderfully British and incredibly twee.
Other brides like to opt for a full, three course sit down meal that enables them to share speeches on their big day coupled with lashings of champagne to wash down their feast. Think carefully about your requirements as your choice of food and drink will have an enormous impact on your day.
Being a bride is exciting. If you are getting married this year, or next, you are to have an enjoyable day. Just make sure that you have what you want, not what everyone else thinks that you should have.
