Wedding planner

Drawing on our many years of experience of organising fairytale weddings, we have compiled the following Wedding Planner, which we hope you will find useful.

As Soon As Possible

  • Draw up your guest list, so that you know what size of function suite you will require.
  • Book your wedding ceremony and reception venue.
  • Book your evening entertainment.
  • Book your honeymoon.

One year ahead

  • You should be looking to book your photographer, florist and cars.
  • Compile your gift list.
  • Order your cake.
  • You should be arranging your outfits for your big day - wedding dress, kilt, bridesmaids dresses, etc.

Six months ahead

  • Make an appointment to see your Wedding Coordinator to finalise your arrangements, menus, drinks etc.
  • Make the appropriate arrangements for looking at and ordering your wedding stationery and your wedding rings.

Three months before

  • Book your hairstylist and beautician.
  • Buy presents for your bridesmaids and best man. You may think that you still have plenty of time, but from now on, time will fly in!
  • Submit Marriage Notice Forms with the appropriate documents.

Two months to go

  • Send out invitations.
  • Prepare seating plans.

Under two weeks to go

  • Make an appointment to see your Wedding Co-ordinator to finalise those last few details, advise final numbers and make final payment.
  • Phone round to confirm all your arrangements with your florist, wedding cars, hairdresser etc... you can never be too organised!
  • It may be a good idea to try on your bridal wear just in case it needs any last minute alterations.
  • Don't forget to take time for yourself - treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment.

One week to go

  • You should be holding a Rehearsal, just to ensure that everybody is clear on what his or her role will be on the day.

Your big day

  • All the hard work is over and Your Big Day has arrived! It's all organised. Now it's time for you and your partner to enjoy yourselves.

Have a very special day and a wonderful time!
