Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! It’s so easy to get bogged down with all the admin that needs to be done, but we always made sure we were enjoying the process and keeping the whole purpose of the day at the front of our minds. We were clear from the beginning that we wanted to go with the flow and not get too caught up on having things a certain way, which meant we were able to relax about things.
Buy a wedding planner (a note book to help you keep track of things). This will help you make sure you don’t miss any important deadlines or you don’t lose any contacts for your suppliers.
Have faith that your efforts will be worth it, again if you start stressing, know that come the day it will be magical no matter what!
Choose where you want to save and where you want to spend. Make the use of online printing companies and create your own invites, orders of service and table plans for much cheaper and you can make them exactly how you would like them.
Ask a friend or relative to make the cake, perhaps as their gift, my sister did mine.
Have some alone time as husband and wife after you get married – treasure those moments as you will remember them forever.
Toby personally felt a female wedding photographer would be more artistic and more able to see the beauty in the day. We loved Mona’s story-telling style of photography, her warm, friendly personality and her professionalism. We felt instantly we could trust Mona to do what she does best and we were blown away by the images we received.
Don’t be afraid to be specific with what you want. It’s your day and most people only plan on doing it once so you want it to be right. Venues are generally really accommodating and will do all they can to make it what you want.
Trust in your chosen team of suppliers.
