I thought I would share a few useful tips that are worthwhile knowing that could prove very useful whilst planning.
Style Tip No. 1– If you want to wow your guests with your colour theme/style, opt for colours that complement each other (3 maximum!) Too many colours that clash and your ideas may become lost. See my post 'A Pop of colour' on the latest colour trends for 2018.
Style Tip No. 2 – Place conversation-starter or trivia cards on each guest’s place setting. Style the cards to suit your theme or even your guest. They’ll give people something to talk about and have all in good spirits until the food arrives.
Budget Tip No.1 – If possible, book a weekday wedding, as these can be anything up to half the price of a wedding on a Saturday or Sunday.
Budget Tip No.2 – If you can hire out certain items for your wedding and evening reception, do so. This will save you tons of cash and time. You wont have the worry about storage or buying multiples of anything.
Useful Tip No.1 – Take out wedding insurance. It can protect you against any range of unfortunate events and help you make sure that you’re not out of pocket as a result i.e. loss or damage to wedding attire, such as the wedding dress, presents, wedding cake, rings, flowers etc. For peace of mind, it’s well worth having.
Useful Tip No.2 – Don't under estimate how important your invitations are – they're the first impression of what your wedding will be like, so make them special.
Useful Tip No. 3 – Secure a wedding photographer after you have confirmed the venue and wedding date. Photographers get booked up 2 years in advance; so don’t leave it till the last minute.
