10 WAYS TO ENSURE A PERFECT WEDDING DAY
Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life. Between working with many vendors and suppliers as well as looking after your guests needs, it is easy for some wedding items to slip through the cracks. Here are our 10 ways to ensure a perfect wedding day.
There is a lot to do in advance of the big day. Working with Gold Leaf Event Design & Production will ensure that these things that will not be forgotten on your wedding day:
Marriage license should top the list. Visit your jurisdiction to apply for a marriage license. See what they require in terms of documentation, but you may be required to take a blood test in some states such as Texas. Your wedding planner will make sure this is on your wedding timeline. They will also turn in your paperwork after you have signed your marriage license on your wedding day.
You may be accustomed to wearing your engagement ring every day, so wedding rings may become forgotten. You can’t forget these gems. They are a vital part of your wedding day.
Megan from Orla James laughed, “We get so many people calling last minute asking us to rush their wedding rings and when I ask their wedding date, they tell me it’s in two weeks.” Don’t leave it for the last minute. It’s almost impossible to get something custom made when you are in a hurry.
Consider writing your vows before your wedding day. Provide your planner with a copy that they will remember to have on your special day.
With all the effort gone into picking out the perfect dress that suits you, makes you comfortable and happy, you will absolutely want to remember how you felt in that dress forever. A wedding dress does not show up overnight. You will need to order your dress at least six months in advance in order to get the appropriate alterations done on time.
Your wedding day will come and go, but your wedding pictures will always remain. You should look like a star!
Think of a place that represents who you are as a couple. Where and when would you like to celebrate with your family and friends. Outside? A favorite restaurant? A beautiful ballroom or a backyard? Venues typically book about a year out. Once you find the venue, their availability will determine your actual wedding date!
Gold Leaf Event Design & Production creates an original theme inspired by each couple using personal and seasonal decorations. The right décor can lend to a unique and remarkable experience. Planners search high and low for the perfect effect or vendor who will make your dreams become reality.
What is it that guests remember the most about weddings? The food!
A fun part of planning is choosing the right caterer, from the initial tasting, to creating custom cocktails, be sure to wow your guests with a savory experience they soon wont forget!
Photos and videos are a way to look back and remember your most special wedding moments. It seems on the wedding day itself, everything happens so fast, not to mention the nostalgia factor a beautiful photo album can bring later in life.
As with catering, pick experienced professionals who come highly recommended and are experts in making you look your best!
Music sets the tone of your wedding creating the right ambiance and will be your guests favorite part of the evening. Will it be a live band or a DJ? Whatever your choice, explore it fully before committing.
Wedding gift bags are not an integral part of the wedding but your guests always appreciate the gesture. Planning for gift bags can be a fun way to leave your mark on your guests.
