Congratulations! This really is going to be your Great Day!
The planning and preparations are half the fun but there is a lot to think about and do, especially as the actual day gets nearer. Weddings require more detailed planning than almost any other type of event. You want to be happy and as relaxed as possible, so you can really enjoy your wedding and remember it for all the right reasons!
There may also be some special surprises that the bride and/or groom want to include before or on the day and I can be an invaluable helper and keeper of secrets here.
The day itself will fly by and you are not likely to have much, if any, time to think about anything apart from yourself/yourselves in the last few days before the wedding and certainly on the day. The best man, ushers, bridesmaids, your parents and any other special people, should all have a list of things they are responsible for but they are very much part of the day and, in the excitement, they may forget things or simply run out of time themselves! They all have to get ready too!
The amount of help you need from someone like me, depends on various things including the kind of venue you’re choosing. If you have a package from a hotel or a venue that is used to hosting weddings, then you may well be provided with a dedicated member of staff to ensure that everything runs to plan. However, this is not always the case and, in this situation, if the member of staff is not wholly focused on your event, you may want the comfort of having me there to make sure everything flows smoothly. Before the wedding day there will also be a number of practical details to discuss, agree and possibly negotiate with the venue.
If you are holding the reception at home or at a location where you are expected to make all or most the arrangements yourself (e.g. a barn, a friend’s home, the village hall etc), then there is a lot more planning and organisation involved and this is where the service we offer will be really helpful.
At the start of your planning adventure, you might like to hold a planning party at your home with people that you want to involve in the preparations. I would love to be part of this and I’m happy to help guide what I’m sure will be a lively discussion and come up with ideas!
