Planning a wedding can be an exciting yet daunting process, and you want to make sure that everything is perfect ahead of your big day. You’ve been dreaming about your wedding for as long as you can remember and already have the finer details of every aspect planned out.

From your wedding attire and flower arrangements to venue lighting and entertainment, there’s an awful lot to consider when it comes to planning your wedding. It will be a monumental day in your relationship, so it must stand out for all the right reasons! To help you achieve that, here are our top tips and tricks for a successful wedding:


A dash of colour

Of course, some parts of your wedding will follow traditions that have been with us for centuries, such as the white dress. However, this shouldn’t stop you from adding a dash of colour elsewhere to ultimately show off your personality.

When it comes to how your venue looks, why not take the chance to be different? Inject a pop of colour where you feel is appropriate to enhance the energetic energy of your guests.

There are a few spots where you can add vibrancy to your wedding, from table placements to lanterns that light the way. Don’t forget that you could even set a colour-code so all your guests turn up sporting the same coloured accessories!

Light the way

The lighting of your venue has a huge influence on the way that your guests feel. From making an area feel too congested to making a space look empty. Illuminate your venue as well as you can considering both indoor and outdoor spaces.

With venues that have an outdoor area, your lighting options have been influenced by social media aesthetics. Hanging bulbs to fairy lights wrapped around trees, the outdoor lights that you choose can even complement your indoor lighting and create a cosier atmosphere for your guests and a more inviting space for them to enjoy.

Not only that, you want to make sure that you always look your A-Game for any impromptu photographs with your guests and bad lighting can be a recipe for disaster.

If you want to go all-out on spectacular lighting, buying a portable gobo projector can make all of the difference and allow you to present your venue in the way that you had imagined. Simply put, using this technology will allow you to design walls, dance floors and ceilings. Customise your walls to recreate a forest or create a ceiling full of night stars, the opportunities are endless and are perfect if your wedding has a theme.

Social media savage

You can’t plan a wedding without a little help from social media and although you want your day to reflect your relationship, it will undoubtedly play a big part on your big day. After all, 25% of couples actually create their own hashtag for their guests to interact with.

Aside from the day itself, social media can help in the lead up. Pinterest is a platform that is commonly used when planning a wedding, as you can create a dream board and attach any ideas that you would like to incorporate, whether this is the style of cake you wish to have or the interior décor. Similar to Pinterest is Instagram, one of the most popular platforms around today which will allow you to think outside of the box when it comes to the presentation of your day.

You want to make sure that your guests are talking for days, weeks and months after your wedding and this can only be achieved by implementing something unexpected that can help your guests look incredible on their own social profiles. People love taking photographs and dressing up, so why not rent out a photo booth or create an Instagram-frame that has the details of your wedding on.

To ensure the perfect Instagram feed, why not have different areas that are perfect for taking selfies? From flower walls to fabulous pastel balloons, your wedding will stand out on all social media platforms and everyone who wasn’t in attendance will be totally jealous!

Entertaining entertainment!

Every successful wedding must have entertainment, that’s one of the most important rules. Of course, you can go down the route of a DJ and a band, but why not try something different? People will have a better time if they’re experiencing something that is different to other weddings they go to throughout the year.

Some ideas can include:

  • Magician
  • Comedian
  • Games e.g. — oversized Jenga.
  • Karaoke
  • Fortune Teller

These are just some ideas that you can introduce to the planning stages of your wedding, all you need to plan now is your honeymoon!
