Getting married is one of the most exciting experiences you will ever have, but it is also one of the most stressful. You would think that getting married is all about sitting back, relaxing and enjoying your time with your partner and family, but trust me it really isn’t. Until the big day comes, you will find yourself running around like a headless chicken trying to get organised.
To make things a little easier, I have listed these three things for you to remember when planning your wedding.
If you are arranging a three course meal to celebrate your wedding, then you may want to bear in mind that you are more than likely going to have to cater for a vegetarian. Catering a vegetarian dish for your non meat eaters isn’t really a problem, but the problem is usually remembering them. When your produce your invites to your guests for a three meal, you should make a note for them to advise you if they have any dietary requirements. If any of your guests do have any requirements, you should make a note of their names and inform your caterer as soon as possible.
If you have any children coming to the meal part of your wedding reception, it is essential that you arrange the tables well so that the children are kept together. Young children are never going to want to sit with a group of adults. Arrange a table near the centre of the venue where the children can sit, it is essential that all the parents can clearly see this table so they will be able to keep an eye on their child.
You may also want to come up with a fun children’s menu so they will enjoy their choice of food.
Even though the day is all about you and your partner, it is important that you get some special gifts to those who have helped out on your special day. The bride and groom will usually buy gifts for the parents, bridesmaids and best men. This is just a way to show how thankful you are for all there help and support. You should try and think of a nice meaningful gift that will remind them of your special day. For the bridesmaids and the mothers, it will be nice to choose some gorgeous pearl jewellery. Pearls are the traditional choice of jewellery for a wedding as it represents the purity of the bride. You should look at the perfect pearl jewellery gifts to ensure that you pick the perfect gift. For the men and the fathers, you should buy them something they can keep on them forever; the main choices are either a watch or cufflinks.
