Your wedding is one of the most special days of your life. It is a celebration of love, commitment and joy surrounded by those that you care most about. But to ensure such a momentous event runs smoothly, sufficient planning needs to take place. From your hair and makeup to the venue to transport, there’s some important things to create a seamless wedding day. In this week’s blog, we share five tips to ensure your big day goes as planned.
1) Your budget
The first thing to consider when planning a significant event is your budget. While it’s tempting to get carried away with the aesthetic elements, such as your beautiful wedding dress and picturesque venue, it’s important to know your financial limits first. This will ensure you don’t waste time with things that are out of your budget. Setting up a wedding budget will help ensure costs don’t run away from you.
2) The venue
The venue brings everything together. From the flowers to the catering to the decorations, the venue is essential to informing other components of your big day. When choosing the right venue, make sure you take factors such as the size of the wedding, venue facilities and accessibility, and the time of year you plan to hold your wedding into consideration.
3) The order of events
From the initial ceremony to the reception to cake time and the first dance, there are lots of different parts of a wedding. To ensure a seamless wedding day, it’s critical that you plan these moments accordingly. You might hire a wedding planner to help with this or ask a friend or family member. Whoever is in charge, make sure they know the times and cues so that everything runs on time.
4) Dress, hair and makeup
Now we can finally think about the dress, hair and makeup! Do you want white or ivory? Chiffon or lace? The dress is your big reveal so make it yours. Now that you know your venue as well, you can make a dress decision based on this. For example, your wedding might be at the beach which could potentially eliminate dresses with long trains.
Figuring out how you and your guests will get to the event is crucial. If you have family and friends coming from afar, they may not have a car with them, and those who are unfamiliar with the area would greatly appreciate pre-organised transport. At Melbourne on the Move, we offer wedding bus hire to and from your special day. Wherever you’re getting married in Victoria, we can provide transport for you and your guests. Just name the day, advise us of your pick up and drop off points, and we’ll take care of the rest. Please call us on 1300 55 86 86 to organise your booking today.
