The Details That Make Your Wedding Truly Perfect

When you are planning a wedding, the main aim is of course to ensure that it is going to be as perfect, or as close to perfection, as possible. This is easier said than done, but it’s something that you can really make sure of if you simply put the necessary effort into a few of the most pressing and important details. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the details that are especially necessary to get right. As long as you do, your wedding is more likely to go to plan and be the perfect day for you.

 Details That Make Your Wedding

Personalised Decorations

You can just go for some tried and tested decorations if you like, and it’s not as though this is going to cause you a lot of problems or that your wedding won’t be beautiful. But if you are keen to make sure that your wedding is as close to your idea of perfection as possible, then it could be a good idea to try and personalise your decorations as much as you can. This is easy enough to do, but it will make a huge difference to how your overall day goes.

Clothing

It probably goes without saying, but you obviously want to ensure that all of the clothing at the wedding day is as close to perfect as possible. The most important is the bride and groom, of course, and the wedding dress in particular is one thing that most brides put a lot of effort into getting right. But you’ll also want to think about the other members of the wedding party: the groomsmen in their suits, the flower girls in some girls tutu dresses, and so on. Focus on these details and it will really add to the effect of the whole day.

Special Venue

Venues are tricky to get right, but one way to approach this is to think about what kind of venue you might be able to go for if you want to be able to feel truly at home while you are having your special day. It’s a good idea to try and choose a venue that speaks to you, and that might mean somewhere that already has particular meaning for you and your partner. This is a great way to make your day just that little bit more special, so make sure you consider it carefully.

Professional Videographer

You might want to hire a photographer, but it could also be an idea to hire a videographer as well, as this is quite a powerful way to really make sure that you can look back on the day and remember it fondly and with great clarity. If you can find a videographer who is going to really work well for you, that can help to seal the deal when it comes to the whole day itself. Consider this, and you should be able to enjoy your day all the more, and your guests probably will as well.

Important Things To Do Before Proposing

Proposing to someone is a big thing and certainly something you need to be a hundred per cent sure of before you do it. It’s also something you will want to be memorable, meaningful and in a way have a nod to your time together. Whether that’s connecting it to a place you went for a first date, an inside joke or something you both love. Here are a few key things to do before proposing.

Important Things To Do Before Proposing

Is It Something You Both Want?

One of the most important things to consider is if you both actually want to get married. Not everyone wants to have a normal marriage, house, and kids life. Some people don’t have any desire to get married and will happily show their love for their partners in other ways so having a conversation before you’re wanting to propose is a big to-do on your list. It’s important to know you’re both going in the same direction and wanting the same things out of life.

The Most Important, The Ring

Engagement rings can be hard to shop for because it can be difficult to know your partner size. There are a few ways that you can do this. You could borrow a ring from her collection and say you’re getting it cleaned, you could try simply asking and sometimes if you know the height and weight jewellers can estimate what size ring you need. They can also resize after so it’s not the end of the world. It’s also important to know what type of rent they may want. Some people want them or classic and traditional engagement rings and some people want more unique engagement rings. Once you know that and your budget you can go off and find the perfect one for your love.

Give Them A Pamper Beforehand

An odd one but an important one. After you proposed and they have hopefully said yes. One of the first things You Will be doing is to take pictures to remember the moment. Your other half or very much thank you if they have had a fresh manicure and either gel nails or acrylics on when they’re taking their pictures for the first time with the ring on. It’s only a little thing but it shows that you care about the details. So just tell them that they deserve a pamper and book them in for a massage and a nail appointment.

Have a Camera Ready

Capturing moments to remember forever is a great idea. You can set up your camera so it is on the timer to take lots of shots or you can simply hire a photographer to hide and take some picturesque and top quality shots for you to use when announcing your engagement. It’s always great to see how shocked they are as well as the nerves that may make the moment go so quickly. 

These tips will help you plan an amazing memorable proposal and capture the moment to remember forever.

Prepping for Your Wedding: 7 Forgotten Things

When you are prepping for your wedding, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. But there are plenty of things that tend to be forgotten. Here are some of the most common things that are forgotten at a wedding.

Prepping for Your Wedding

Extra transportation

Have you ever heard the story about the bridal party that didn’t have a way to get from the ceremony to the reception? Unfortunately, this story happens more than you would believe. The bridal party tends to be forgotten after the ceremony and many people struggle to get lifts after the ceremony. Always remember to book an extra car for the groomsmen and the bridesmaids.

The weather

If you have planned a beautiful summer wedding, and have no plans for rain, you will probably encounter rain. Having a backup plan when the rain appears, or there is any change in the weather, is one of the easiest ways to ensure your day doesn’t get ruined. It could be as simple as having a basket with sunscreen, welly boots and white umbrellas on hand.

Photo wrangler

You might have booked a photographer and are paying a fortune for your photos but there is a good chance that you need a photo wrangler. This person is there to round up people for the photos so that the photographer can focus on the shots. Sometimes the photographer will have an assistant to help them but you had better ask if they are able to wrangle your guests together for the photos.

The kids

If you are a bride with kids, you will probably have thought about how you can keep them happy during the day. However, if you don’t have kids, you run the risk of having any little guests getting bored and ruining the mood. You also need to make sure that the area is safe for them so everyone can relax. You don’t need to get a health and safety consultant in but you should have a check to make sure that the kids will be safe.

Sunset

If you are planning a winter wedding, you will probably have planned for bad weather. But what about the sunset? This is very important if you are planning on taking photos outside as the sunlight tends to be an important part of getting those photos done. Always check to see what time sunset is at so you don’t get left in the dark.

Gift person

As the bride, you won’t have time to gather all of your wedding presents, but you should have someone who you trust that can help you. Sometimes this job falls to the bridesmaids but make sure you tell one of them that this is their job. If you assume that they will do this, you could end up with your gifts being left at the reception. However, some places do offer a gift holding service so you can swing by the next morning and pick them up.

Cash

Depending on the type of bar you have at your reception, you might want to consider having some cash on you. You will be surprised by the amount of brides who end up needing their bank card or some cash on their wedding day, so always have something to hand for emergencies.
