Helpful Hints For Your Wedding Day

By Darren Ackers

The time has come. All the detailed and intricate planning begins to ensure your big day is special and everyone will remember this event for the remainder of their life.

Remember to always try to book your wedding at least 12 months in advance.

Select at least two dates with the Church and have your name penciled in. It gives you some lead way when visiting caterers. When selecting your date, remember the months of May, June, August, September, and October are the most popular.

Decide early on the number of guests to invite and agree to your budget with your partner and parents.

Most Caterers require a 125 guest guarantee for a Saturday Night reception, so invite a little more. One rule of thumb is you will have a 10% to 15% decline in your guest list. Let your Caterer know the budget you have for your reception, so they can show you a package designed to best meet your needs and budget. Decide on the type of food you want. Think and write down various options.

Don't forget the vegetarian option. Buffets and Food Stations are thought to be less expensive then a Sit Down Dinner but are not always. You are offering your guests a variety of entrees to have and an all you can eat situation. A good Caterer will use the same number of table staff plus Buffet or Station servers.

Decide carefully if you are considering a Buffet. It will take much longer to serve your guests than a sit down dinner, and a Four Hour Reception may not afford enough time to enjoy yourself to the fullest. Unless you are doing everything from scratch, the full Catering Facilities today are beautiful and only need the addition of floral centerpieces to adorn the tables. Most Caterers offer a wide selection of Linen colours to choose from. Some caterers will also offer wedding chair covers for hire.
