1. Your wedding doesn’t need to be traditional or religious.
If the thought of a traditional or religious wedding ceremony is not appealing to either of you, a marriage celebrant may be the perfect solution. A marriage celebrant is similar to a wedding planner. This means they are able to come up with great ideas for your ceremony, starting with your grand entrance, to the perfect kiss before your final jubilant exit. A marriage celebrant does everything within their power to make sure that your special day begins and ends without a single hitch. You no doubt have the perfect venue in mind, along with the cake and food you are wanting to serve to your guests. Your photographer is booked and your flowers are on order. The last thing remaining is your marriage celebrant to help you design the perfect ceremony for you and your partner. The ceremony that reflects who you are and is what you want.
2. You may not be able to budget for everything.
The ceremony, the venue, photographer, caterer, the couples dress and tux, let’s not forget everything else on your budget. The rehearsal dinner is getting more popular here, and even the party can become costly too. On the timeline to your big day there is always the risk of a sudden and necessary expenditure. So by keeping a little extra money to the side for emergencies can always be a great safety net.
3. A time-friendly planning schedule.
It’s no secret that your wedding will involve high levels of planning. This is because there is simply so much that needs to be done. Scheduling, calling, meetings, invites, sizing, budgeting, (let’s not forget re-budgeting). It’s recommended that couples begin planning their special day at least an entire year in advance. This time will allow plenty of necessary planning such as your venue, outfits, guest list and much more.
4. Your partner may have some great idea’s too.
Your fiancé has no doubt been forced to watch all your inspirational romantic comedies too, so don’t be surprised if they picked up a few ideas of their own. The likelihood of your partner coming up with some perfect ideas about lighting, music, and so on is incredibly high, so always remember to consult with your partner. It’s their big day too, and it’s their opinion is worth it’s weight in gold.
5. Your wedding plan may not go as smoothly as first planned.
Where is the cake? Where did the flowers get delivered too? There may be hiccups or setbacks along the way. Some of these may not be able to be resolved before the big day, but the most important thing to remember is that your day isn’t ruined. This is about you and your partner announcing your love for one another. You didn’t like that shade of pink on those roses anyway, right? Keep smiling and whatever happens this is your big day! Enjoy every minute of it.
