Wedding Planners and Guides


Weddings are an important day in the lives of the bride, groom and their parents. For any marriage, from the wedding ceremony right through to the reception and the honeymoon, the goal is to make this event as memorable as possible. Therefore, it is important that the right planning take place to make the wedding run smoothly.

You can make big strides in charting your own details by planning in advance, and delegating friends, family and professionals to coordinate services. Remember to always follow a good check list, and line up all of the major elements - flowers, catering, wedding favors, invitations. Once you have everything in place, you can sit back, relax, and celebrate the party of a lifetime.

Taking the time to prepare and plan for your wedding involves creativity, patience and networking. To many people the details of planning a wedding from beginning to end seem daunting. Often this leads to hiring a consultant - someone who can manage the entire process on the wedding day.

Quick Tips

Planning your wedding reception doesn’t have to be a headache. Yes, there are many details to deal with, but with a little preparation and this quick ideas guide, you’ll have everything under control.

Selecting the location of your reception is the first thing you need to do. If you’re going to have it at your ceremony site, this makes planning your reception a lot easier. If you want to have it at a different location, you need to decide where and soon.

Some popular choices are local hotels, restaurants, private homes, clubs, and museums. Whichever you select, keep in mind that the location tends to set the tone for your reception.

After you’ve decided on your reception location, you need to find out about fees, and make sure they fit your budget. You also want to be certain the space is large enough to accommodate your reception needs. Many locations will cover everything from food to parking for a flat fee.

Also, before you start making calls, know how many people you’ll be providing food for. Then you’ll want to begin looking for caterers if your location doesn’t offer food service.
