Say ‘I do’…

Contrary to popular belief, there is still some late availability for weddings. So, if you are hoping to get married soon, here are some tips on how you can plan a wedding in just a few months!

Your wedding venue is usually the deal breaker as it will dictate the date of the big day. In Preston and Fylde there is still late availability so shop around to find that perfect place to say, ‘I do’.

Once you’ve found your venue, book the registrar or church service.

Over the coming weeks choose your photographer, florist and cake-maker. Reserve suits, if you are hiring and start shopping for the wedding dress.

If you’re planning a big wedding send out invitations as soon as possible and ensure you make appointments for your hair and makeup. If you want a DJ and/or a band for the evening reception, book it now!

With a few weeks to go, you should have had your final dress fitting and double checked your arrangements.

Also start to confirm numbers with your venue, advise on any changes to your menu and think about a seating plan and buying presents for bridesmaids and the best man.

With one week to go, delegate wedding day duties, check speeches and organise a run through or rehearsal with close family and friends.

And on the day, enjoy, knowing that everything has been taken care of!

Once your big day is over, you can then look forward to your honeymoon. If you are choosing a holiday abroad, think about what the weather will be like when you go. If your wedding is in the winter months and you are looking for winter sun, you may need to go long haul, which will add to the cost. For some countries it may also be the rainy season.

Some companies organise honeymoon packages, where you can get added bonuses to make your holiday extra special.

Whatever you choose your wedding and honeymoon will be one to remember.
