Here at The Essex Events Company, we love to help couples have their perfect day. Here are a few useful tips and things to think about.
Keep a Scrapbook:
As soon as you have appointed your Wedding Planner start putting together a Scrapbook and fill it with cuttings on anything that catches your eye. They can then be taken to your suppliers, where those ideas can form the basis of the initial meeting and be expanded on to reflect your dislikes and likes
If you need to be able to dance in your Wedding Dress then a magnificent Train will look stunning at the Ceremony but may not work quite as well on the dancefloor. Check your train has a bustle option or a loop you can put over your wrist.
Make sure your Photographer is well briefed on your specific requirements for the photographs following the Ceremony so that guests are not hanging around for ages! A good idea is to appoint a member of both families and give them the responsibility of organising the guest groups required for the photographs.
Keep the music playing (back up tracks) – when booking your chosen Band stipulate that you do not want any breaks in the music so that the dancefloor is busy. This may mean paying for a DJ to cover for each other but will ensure that the atmosphere is maintained and your guests keep enjoying the party!
Try and keep speeches short during the Wedding Breakfast! Encourage all speech makers to rehearse and time their speeches to adhere to your timetable!
