Wedding planning and you: Tips from a country wedding venue near Fourways

When you’re planning your wedding, you may feel both exhilarated and terrified. After all, you’re excited to start your life with the person you love, but you also have to do a lot of hard work to organise every aspect of the celebrations. Spending some time on planning your wedding is something that can make all the difference in your special day going off without a hitch.

Write Everything Down

When you first start planning your wedding, you can quickly be overwhelmed by all the options out there. From florists and photographers to cake styles and bridesmaid dresses, you will be presented with every style, package and colour imaginable. This is where writing everything down – whether on your computer or in a notebook – is vital to staying on top of everything.


Pulling off the perfect wedding day means making sure that everyone is on the same page. Be sure to talk with all the people involved in your wedding, whether they are ushers, bridesmaid or groomsmen and make sure that they are comfortable with the level of responsibility that they are being given. Do they have the time and the money to commit to helping you out? Finding out will make sure that no one gets stretched too thin.
