1. It’s all about the timing.
Firstly (and probably the most critical point of all), timing. It’s all about the timing. Timing, timing, timing. Got it?
Timing plays a crucial role throughout the whole wedding planning process and the day of the celebration itself. From the booking of the venue in the early days, right through to the precise time you need to arrive on the day, timing should be at the forefront of every decision you make about your wedding.
When it comes to timing one of the most important things to remember is arranging your wedding cake. A wedding cake maker should be found as soon as you book your big day, to avoid disappointment. Many people arrange to have their wedding cakes made a year or two before the big day.
If you have a fabulous network of friends and family to help you, things can be much easier. Mum’s can be very helpful (or not so helpful, depending on your mother), as can close friends who have been there and done it themselves. The people that know you better than anyone else can help you to make the important decisions at the best times.
A wedding calendar can prove to be extremely helpful when it comes to monitoring key dates and times. Make note of when certain tasks need to be completed or when things need to be booked. Wedding cars, invites, caterers and beauticians are just a few of the things you can keep track of using a devoted calendar system.
