Hints & Tips From Ourselves

The build up to the big day!


Give a few key tasks to trusted friends and family to take some of the pressure off you.


Keep a folder with all quotes, prices and invoices in. Better to be organised and have such things to hand!.


On the wedding invites, ask your guests for two of their favourite songs the DJ can play!. This should keep people on the dance floor all night!.


If your guests stress you out, kindly inform them of who's day it is!.


Six to twelve months before


Confirm bookings with Church, Registry Office, venue etc.


Choose dresses for you, your Bridesmaids and attendants


Put your guest list together


Book your suppliers such as photographer, florist, transport and entertainment. Remember that most high quality suppliers, such as Devon Discos, book way in advance.


Book Your honeymoon!.


When Then Date Is Booked


Affordability is key. Have a budget and stick to it!.


Have a rough figure in mind for guests, both at the ceremony and evening reception.


Make sure you are insured!. Things can and sometimes do go wrong, even with the best planning!. Arrange insurance!.


Decide your Bridesmaids, Best Man, Ushers etc. Don't be afraid of offending anyone!. Remember it is your day and true friends will respect that!.


Four To Six Months Prior To Your Big Day


Think about your Wedding Present list and have plenty of ideas for practical items to help you settle in to married life.


Take time together to go shopping and choose your Wedding Rings. Don't just buy the first ones you see. Shop around!.


Get your Wedding Cake sorted!. Discuss ideas and suggestions with suppliers.


Groom/Best Man to organise and arrange their clothing.


Lots of people now decide to have Wedding Favours and these are a very nice touch and are purchased sometimes with something in mind that was special to the happy couple, e.g. something they did when they first met, something special to them.


It's Getting Closer!.  Only About Four Months Now.!


Speak to your Wedding Photographer about ideas you may have. It may be you have specific ideas in mind about certain shots of you and family etc.


Make sure all details are correct with all your suppliers, including Church, Registry Office And Reception Venue etc.


Post your Wedding Invites. If you've already done this, follow up any non returned Wedding Invites and discuss/arrange seating plan with your Wedding Reception Venue.


Again, this one only applies to Brides!. Around six or seven weeks before your big day, arrange an appointment to have your Wedding Dress fitted.


Hen and Stag Nights. Very important to get these planned and organised!.


Speak to your venue about your menus for your reception and finalise these.


Even Closer now.......  Only A Couple Of Months!.


Speak to your DJ!. Most important this one!. Confirm any styles of music you require .Forward to him the requests that have come back in from your invites. And your First Dance Track!. Confirm this with him. We do know of horror stories where the DJ has turned up without the chosen track!.


Make final checks with your Church etc.


Make your appointment for your Hairdresser and make up........Brides only!


Arrange fittings for your Bridesmaid's dresses!


About four weeks before your day, arrange with your Wedding Dress supplier the final fitting.

Couple Of Weeks To Go...........!


Make final checks with every supplier that everything is is ok and in place.


Check your Wedding Speeches are ready and in place with the person/s making them.


If you’ve booked a honeymoon, check all details are correct. Get your currency arranged and packing done!.


Couple Of Days To Go.........!


Final checks should be all that is needed now!.


Relax and keep calm!.




Enjoy your morning getting ready with your Bridesmaid's and friends!


Final check to make sure Best Man has the rings safe and secure!.


Leave for the Church!. Enjoy your day!. All the planning you've done with the help of this list (we hope!) will make your day run smoothly!. Don't worry if you've forgotten anything. Only you will know!.


Finally, when the ceremony is over, all went well and you at your Reception enjoying yourself, Relax, let you're hair down and dance like you've never danced before and make your Reception one to remember!.
