Spring is a great time to get married and fits in with the season of new beginnings. There are still things you will need to do before the big day, so we have put together some ideas to ensure that your wedding day goes smoothly and without a hitch.
Things You Can Do in Advance
According to Brides Magazine, the average cost of a wedding is £30,000, but it doesn’t need to be so expensive, and by arranging many things in advance you will be surprised about how much you can save.
Having a stag or hen party the night before the wedding itself is never a good idea, so make sure you have them at least a few weeks before. According to the Daily Mail, the average cost of a hen night is £106 and a stag night is more than double that. So it pays to organise them early to get the best deals. Make sure the honeymoon is also booked and paid for and that you know where you are staying the night before the wedding and on the night of the wedding itself.
Have several dress fittings in the run-up to your wedding day so that your dress will fit perfectly, and organise hair and make-up trials before the day and then book for the day itself. If you are looking for wedding makeup in Belfast, this could be someone such as Ciara daly makeup.
Confirm all the numbers in advance, taking into account any extra evening guests, and always have a table plan. Anything that you are making yourself such as table centres or favours should be done at least four weeks in advance, and ensure that you have booked a florist for your bouquets and buttonholes.
Additional things to remember for the day itself are your wedding vows, if you are writing your own, and the rings. It is important to delegate jobs for the day to your ushers, best man and bridesmaids, and you can thank them by purchasing gifts to be presented at the reception.
Hopefully this has helped you to make your final list of things to do before the big day so that by the time the day comes around you can just relax and enjoy it.
