Guide to Wedding services

Your wedding day is one of the best days of your life, or at least it should be. But making sure your big day is perfect takes a lot of time, effort, planning and patience.

There are so many aspects to consider and organise that you should really start planning your wedding day about a year in advance, when your first job will be to book your ceremony and reception venues, and draw up a guest list. Some couples immediately know the venue where they want to tie the knot, while others have no idea at all, but luckily help is at hand from wedding planners and advisors. For examples of wedding venues, see our wedding venues in Southampton, Norwich, Bath, Newcastle upon tyne and Newport pages.

Also worth thinking about 12 months in advance are your wedding photographs, flowers, stationery and the wedding caterers. You should start locating and contacting florists, photographers, etc, but may not need to make your order until six months before the big day. For examples of wedding photographers, visit our wedding photographers in Milton Keynes section.

Six months before the wedding you should also have chosen your wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, bought the wedding rings, booked the honeymoon and the wedding cars in Glasgow, organised the wedding cake, and ordered your wedding stationary, such as invitations, place name cards, etc. For examples of wedding cake suppliers, see our wedding cakes in Bath page, or for examples of travel agents that specialise in honeymoons, see our honeymoons in Bristol section.

Three months before your big day it is time to hire your suits, for examples see our suit hire in Fleet section, draw up your wedding present list, and send out the wedding invitations. Then six weeks before the wedding you need to visit a hairdresser, decide on your style and book an appointment for the day, and buy the gifts for your bridesmaid, best man, ushers, pageboys, and the bride and groom’s parents.

A week before the big day you should check all your arrangements and hold a rehearsal of the ceremony, so the only thing you’ll need to think about on your wedding day is enjoying yourselves!
