Your best friend is a plan

Your wedding day is one of the most significant days of your life and many couples spend years planning their perfect day. It is not uncommon nowadays for people to have longer engagements than they may have done in the past, this is in part due to the fact that many more couples are paying for their own weddings and so take the extra time to save up. These longer engagements mean that the couples can take more time in planning for their big day to ensure that everything runs smoothly, and they can sit back and enjoy the day, as it flies past quicker than most people realize.

Here are some of the main areas that you need to plan your wedding.


Choosing your wedding venue can seem like one of the most daunting tasks but once you have chosen this the rest of the plans all start to slot into place and with recent legislative changes there will be more and more options available to couples. With everything from traditional church venues right through to hotels that cater for your big day it is important to choose the right one.  You will notice a lot of venues choose to have Steel Shelving which can be bought from companies like Rackzone to keep their stock organised, pictures of previous weddings and general day to day ornaments for a beautiful finish.


You will have spent a lot of time choosing the Diamond Scatter Wedding Rings that you love the last thing you want to do is forget it or even lose it on the day. One of the best ways to ensure that your wedding rings make it to the venue safely in one piece, you should give the important task to one of your ushers preferably the best man. If you are planning on having a younger members of your family carry the rings down the aisle on a beautifully made pillow you should make sure that the rings are not added until the very last minute.

The wedding reception and evening events are where you can really show your personality and many people reflect this through the decorations and entertainment that they include. This could be everything from a DJ and disco right through to a full casino set up or even a magician or perhaps some mechanical rodeo bulls.


Many more couples are choosing to add a bit of fun into their evening meal catering with hog roasts, fish and chip vans, pizza karts and mini take-away meals all being incredibly popular choices. Along with the entertainment and decorations this is one area that you can really let your own personal tastes and personalities shine through.
