Wedding Tips and Tricks

Prioritize Guests

Make sure you have a good count of the people you are inviting. A lot of your decisions will depend on that, including the venue. Typically, wedding planners suggest 25-30 sq ft of space for each guest is optimal, and choosing a venue based on that helps in rendering a lot of tasks easy.

wedding guests

After you've prepared a list of guests, you should always prioritize your family and close friends first. Once you've set the number of guests, bear in mind the extra space you'll require for the tables, waiters, cooks, and other involved parties.

Choose Your Dates Wisely

Ensure you choose your wedding dates that don't fall on days with conferences, local events/holidays. This may affect the availability of hotels/resorts.

Keep An Eye On Your Credit

Of course, the main point is to not take too much credit but also make sure you keep an eye on your credit card reward programs.

You could get airline miles, shopping discounts, and much more. So having all the wedding expenses under one credit card can help you accumulate rewards and points.

Being Organized Helps A Lot

Having to make a note of everything that needs to be done and in its particular order is quite helpful. It will help you finish your wedding tasks efficiently and furthermore, there won't be any tasks left forgotten.

organized video production

You can use a binder for the same purpose. On the other hand, you can also use mobile apps for the same, additionally, mobile apps will give you reminders on undone tasks and much more.

How About A Wedding Video?

Getting a video shot is probably one of the best things you can do.

Just Ask

Don't be shy, especially with your wedding vendors. If you have anything on your mind about the wedding, be upfront about it with your vendors.

Most vendors will try to accommodate each and every request, remember, you’re not the first wedding they've worked for, so in one sense, they're ready for unusual requests.

All Your Guests Will Not Make It

Well, this is something you have to prepare for in advance. Quite a few of your guests will not be able to make it to your wedding.

It could be due to the location of the wedding, timing, or it could be the fact that they have other work-related tasks to complete.

Provide Accurate Location

This is one thing you've got to keep in mind, of course, providing accurate location is not a problem nowadays.

With the help of a GPS navigation system, it becomes easy to drive to a particular location. But even then, make sure you provide the accurate name and details of the venue.

Plan The Wedding Set-Up

Probably, one of the most important aspects of planning and setting up a wedding.

Giving ample time to workers and planners to set the wedding up is something you should put on top of your wedding-day priority list. This helps in ensuring everything from the ceremony to the after-party goes smoothly.

Make A List Of Emergency Numbers

Note down all the numbers so the vendors and family numbers are on the safe side.

Or for this brief period of time, you can put all your emergency numbers on your mobile's speed dial.

Final Thoughts

Planning a wedding can be quite a daunting task but as mentioned before, with a little bit of meticulous planning you can have a great wedding indeed.

Also, don’t forget, if you need a video for your wedding, we at Peace Entertainment Media, are always at your disposal.
