You’ve booked your venue and catering, congratulations! What comes next?
Planning your wedding can quickly become overwhelming if you start to think about all the things that need to be decided, planned and booked. Here are some tips to ensure you stay on top of everything.
Consider Hiring a Wedding Planner
A wedding planner can take the stress out of planning a wedding. They will help you stay on top of all your to-dos and ensure decisions are made on a timely manner. A wedding planner can also provide recommendations on the best vendors to work with.

Make a To-Do List
Sit down with your significant other to discuss what you want for your special day – centerpieces, florals, colours, theme, invitations. Making an exhaustive list will help you get everything down on paper. Consult a Wedding Planning checklist to ensure you haven’t forgotten anything. Do not become overwhelmed by the sheer number of things on this list. Remember you can delegate tasks and share the load. A wedding planner is a great resource to helping with this.
Create a Timeline
Now that you have a to-do list, work back from your wedding day to understand when you will need to complete these tasks. This will alleviate any last minute decisions or late fees. It will also ensure that you get everything you want. For example: some bakeries requires a deposit months in advance to ensure they can create the perfect cake for your special day and who wants to miss out on a cake tasting. Consider these details as you’re building a timeline.
Set a Budget
Remember that budget you started for the venue and catering? Bring it back out and make sure you’re adding to it all the things you’re looking to add for your special day. This will be important to make sure you stay on budget and track your expenses. Budget management may be tedious but you’ll be thankful in the end.
Conclusion: And Most Importantly, Remember to HAVE FUN!
Don’t forget that this is YOUR special day! It can quickly become a bundle of stress especially if you have a lot of opinions invading your planning. Take time to ensure you are satisfying your needs and remember to have fun! For more details on our packages, please contact us for a complementary no obligation consultation.
