Accepting a proposal from your soulmate is the first step in your wedding preparations. If you and your partner are eager to get the wedding planning going, you may be overwhelmed by how much you need to organise. The basics are obvious, such as the venue, dress, catering and the entertainment. But there are lots of tiny add-ons and features to a wedding that can shift it from ordinary to extraordinary. If you’re keen to make your big day memorable, take a look at these essential tasks for your to-do list.
The flowers for your wedding will be paramount. The floral arrangements are integral to creating a vibe for your big day. You could choose a traditional red rose buttonhole for the groom and best man, or something a little unusual. The flowers for your ceremony and decor will help you to create a theme for your wedding. You may choose a vibrant array of hibiscus to remind you of your first holiday together. Or perhaps a lighter and more delicate display of flora such as gypsophila will suit your more bohemian style.
A luxury wedding planner can utilise your ideas and work with you to create a bespoke and individual floral display. This can ease the pressure when arranging your wedding, allowing you to feel safe knowing that a professional has it in hand.
Wedding photography has altered dramatically in the last decade. Whereas standard formal shots were once the order of the day, more candid documentary-style photography is now on-trend. This style of photography allows more natural moments to be captured of your big day, from the jokes shared over your wedding breakfast to the intimate moments you and your partner shared when saying your vows. A documentary-style wedding photographer will be discrete, and you shouldn’t even know they are there floating around capturing your big day. Check out reviews online and always ask to see a photographer’s work before going ahead with any booking.
Your catering might be easy to arrange, your cake is a more personal decision. Are you going to go for the traditional three-tier affair, or do you fancy something a little different? You might choose a cupcake mountain, with a range of flavours such as salted pecan caramel or blueberry champagne fizz. Or maybe, you fancy a decadent chocolate illusion cake that expresses your personality as a couple? Go for something that you will love rather than following a trend.
When planning your big day, don’t neglect these three essential to-do list tasks to ensure that your wedding goes without a hitch.Love Lilla xx
