Don’t be afraid to ask questions to better organize your wedding
The caterer, the photographer, the DJ… are professionals and this is not the first time that they are hired for a wedding. They are regulars at the famous D-day so don’t hesitate to ask them a million questions, like being able to change something in their menu or to set up a photo shoot portraits of the guests as soon as they arrive… you must be in total confidence with them. Their work will be as well to tell you if it is possible for your budget wedding and the equipment they have available.
Get ready to receive ” No “

The excitement is at its peak when it comes to orchestrating the day should be the most beautiful of our life. So, we tend to want to start to manage several things at once right from the start. Big mistake ! The best is to go step by step, in a logical order, so that you don’t have to adjust several things at once and that would snow ball effect. One does not choose his caterer before you set a date, one does not choose a band or a DJ if you don’t yet booked the room, we do not order our wedding cake if they have not found a florist…
It provides a route for the road is very accurate to its guests
It is necessary to ensure that your guests know where they need to go. If you have chosen to unite with the town hall or the church of your city, but your reception will be held several kilometers away, the best thing to do is to make a road trip for all your guests. Generally, the cars follow in a procession, but if one of them is lost, it is still preferable that it can locate you not ?
All that is important for the wedding must maintain proof that written
If your reception hall has to close at 2 o’clock in the morning, but you get to negotiate up to 3 hours, ask for a confirmation email. It is very important that this be put in writing, in the event of a problem. You know what they say : “the words fade away, but writings remain “.
It establishes the budget
The budget of the marriage is a real puzzle. Worse still (or not) that the placement of the table. So, the best is to start as quickly as possible : how much one wants to put in the wedding dress, in music, in flowers, to the photos. You assign a number to each one, determining the most important things. For example, if you have found the dress of your dreams and exceeds a little (or a lot) of the budget that you had planned, then you will see a decrease in the budget for the invitations and the flowers.
We make sure that our guests may see or hear the ceremony
Whether you opted for a secular ceremony or in a place of worship, it is necessary to ensure that all your guests will be able to see you and hear you when you will pronounce your vows. Take a seat in the last row and test it. If necessary, consider renting a mic and a podium, so that everyone can be a good viewer of your big day.
We are writing the important contacts ” just in case “
Create a sheet with emergency contacts for the day of your wedding. And keep this sheet carefully in its superb cover art. This can be useful in the case where the driver of the limousine is lost, or that your catering is in the wrong place… please Remember to make copies to give to your parents and witnesses.
Plan the time of the installation
Impossible to reach with all your guests and see that all of your decor is not yet installed ! The horror ! So, we ask for how long there is to the installation with the owners of the premises. The best is still to ask if it is possible to come the day before in order to sleep perfectly on his two ears. After all, a great day awaits you the next day.
