When it comes to getting married it can certainly be a special time for both you and your partner. The planning process can get a little stressful at times. All of the appointments you have to go to, the decisions you need to make, they can really take their toll especially when it comes to the budget, and so once your day rocks around you certainly enjoy that glass of Champagne and make the most of your special day.
But would you believe there are actually forgotten aspects of your day that you might not think about until the very last minute? Which can then cause you to make a rushed decision. STOP! Here are some of the things you may have forgotten all about when it comes to planning your wedding.
The evening entertainment or party
Brides can get so obsessed with the logistics and running of the day, from the ceremony to the food, but can quite easily overlook the evening side of things and this is when mistakes can be made. What about evening entertainment? Of course you could consider a DJ but you might also want to think about a wedding band to kick the party off in style. Websites like https://www.alivenetwork.com/hirelivemusic/wedding_bands_in.asp?area=Essex have a great selection for you to view. You need to get in early as good bands tend to get booked up way in advance, especially if you are marrying at a popular time of year.
Adding in traditional elements
With so much focus on the actual day, you can often be guilty of forgetting about those little things that you may have dreamt about when you played “weddings” as a little girl. Don’t deny it, many of us did it with a net curtain and our friends at some point. Things like throwing the bouquet, cutting the cake and the first dance. Often we can get preoccupied with the ceremony that we can forget to include these aspects or at least communicate them to the wedding planner at the venue you are getting married at. Take a moment to think about some of the traditional aspects of a wedding and decide what you want to do and get them included. Websites like https://www.confetti.co.uk/wedding-advice/wedding-planning-organising/wedding-traditions-and-superstitions have a list for you to consider.
Getting some one on one time with your partner
The day itself is very busy. You have the ceremony, drinks reception, pictures and then food before you know it the evening entertainment has kicked off and you are not off the dance floor. Sounds like the ideal scenario for your big day, but you may find that although you are getting married there is very little one on one time with your new partner. Take a moment, even if it is ten minutes with a quick glass of bubbles to take in what you have just done and have a little chat and a cuddle. It can be one of the most precious memories you end up having from your day.
I hope that has given you something to think about if you are in the middle of wedding planning.
