    The Wedding Planning Checklist

    How can you get organised when there is so much to think about? A spectacular wedding that blends old traditions with modern entertainment and making all the guests enjoy the day (almost as much as the couple themselves!) can be hard to pull off. You’ll need to be highly organised from the beginning, so think about the following stages…

    A year in advance

    • Select a suitable date that your closest family and friends will be happy with
    • Try to sketch out your budget and work out how much to spend on each element
    • Decide on a total number of guests, so you can calculate the rest
    • Consider venues and try to book as soon as you can for popular choices
    • Think about the overall theme and start co-ordinating to match
    • Start thinking about outfits, especially the bride’s
    • Book whoever you need to oversee the wedding ceremony itself
    • Send some “save the date” cards in advance of final invitations
