Wedding checklist: Things to remember

Calculating your budget

The most important thing before you start planning is figuring out how much you intend to spend. This gives you the correct framework which you can build from. Although this a boring place to start, there is nothing worse than creating huge ambitious targets and ideas, then finding out it exceeds your budget.

Make a list of guests

Listing the number of potential guests can help you understand your venue and catering requirements. This list can also be helpful when putting together your invitation cards.

Reserve venue

Now that you have an idea of the amount of people that are attending your wedding, it’s time to visit the venues. You need to remember most venues hold many events such as corporate events and lunches. Hence, why it’s important to reserve a place: better to be safe than sorry.

You can also take advantage of our venue sourcing service which can help you finding your dream venue.

Reach out to caterers

It’s time to reach out to top caterers in your area. We offer a free consultation session where we go through all the important elements of your wedding. Having been in this industry for 20 years, we have learnt a few things on how to execute a great wedding. Our event managers will be on hand to guide you through the whole process.

Meeting with caterers

During the appointment, we discuss the catering service in more detail.
It also gives the chance for our wedding catering team to understand how you want to organise your wedding.
Understanding what matters most to you is essential to ensuring you receive a service which ticks all your boxes.

Finally, don’t forget to have fun

Although the process can seem overwhelming, getting married to your soul is the most important aspect of a wedding. So remember to have fun and create memories that last a lifetime.
