7 Top Tips for Planning a Modern Wedding Ceremony.

Hey there! Are you in the midst of planning your wedding?

First of all, congratulations on your engagement! Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, but don’t worry, I’m here to help. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing our top 7 tips for planning your wedding, including how to find a celebrant to personalise your ceremony. So, grab a coffee and let’s get started!

1. Set a budget

The first and most important step in planning your modern wedding is setting a budget. This will help you determine how much you can spend on each aspect of your wedding and avoid overspending. It’s essential to be realistic and prioritise what’s most important to you as a couple. Remember it’s what you want not what others expect…

2. Pick a date and venue

Once you’ve set your budget, the next step is to pick a suitable date and venue. Consider the time of year, location, and number of guests when choosing your venue. It’s also essential to book your venue in advance, as many popular locations can book up quickly. Remember though- if you choose to have a Celebrant-led wedding ceremony, you have a much wider choice as you can literally hold it anywhere that is meaningful to you.

3. Hire vendors early

Don’t wait until the last minute to hire your vendors. From the photographer to the florist, it’s important to book your vendors early to avoid disappointment. Plus, hiring your vendors early gives you more time to get to know them and ensure they align with your vision for your big day.

4. Personalise your ceremony

One way to make your wedding ceremony unique and special is to personalise it. Consider finding a celebrant who can tailor the ceremony to your individual preferences and beliefs. A celebrant will take lots of time to get to know you and work with you to create a ceremony that reflects your personalities and love story.

5. Don’t forget the details

It’s the little details that make a big impact on your wedding day. From the table settings to the wedding favours, take the time to consider the small details that will make your wedding day memorable. You may want to consider an eco-friendly theme – so giving a pack of seeds / small pot of edible herbs is a lovely, sustainable way of giving back to the earth.

6. Be flexible

As much as we plan, sometimes things just don’t go according to plan. Be flexible and open to change, especially when it comes to the weather, transportation, or unforeseen circumstances. Having a backup plan or alternative options can save you from a lot of stress and frustration. A few deep breaths and embracing the alternatives will give you memories to smile about for years to come.

7. Take time to enjoy the day!

Last but not least, remember to take time to enjoy your wedding day. It’s easy to get caught up in the planning and stress of the day, but remember to take a step back, breathe, and enjoy the moment. After all, it’s your special day!

I hope these tips have helped you in your wedding planning journey. Remember, planning your wedding should be an exciting and enjoyable experience. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice, and most importantly, have fun!
