Wedding Planning Tips

No matter how modest your wedding, organisation, planning and attention to detail are the key to gaining as much pleasure in the months prior to the wedding as in the day itself.

We have filled our website with tips and ideas for creating gorgeous Green Weddings and Celebrations.

The points shown below are the key areas to consider when starting out and planning your big day.

It's worthwhile remembering that the wedding industry relies on a bride's enthusiasm to spend a disproportionate amount of money on arranging her day so, contrary to popular belief, considering naturally greener, ethical, local and even home made alternatives when planning your wedding may actually save you money and will definitely go a long way to personalising your whole event.

Our mission here at GUHQ is to offer you the products and services you most need to make your wedding day that extra special and unique.

But before you even start to look around, here are some key points to consider:

  1. BUDGET:  How much money do you want to spend?
  2. HOW:  Do you want a civil or religious ceremony?
  3. WHEN:  Do you have a date? The main things to consider at this point are venue availability, family and friends' holidays and the seasons. 
  4. WHERE:  Will the ceremony and reception be at the same venue?  Save on transport and keep them together, or at least within walking distance of each other.
  5. WHO:  Who do you want to invite?  The numbers may be dictated by your budget and size of venue.

If you live abroad, or the general demands of work leave you little time to organise your own wedding, it really is worth considering employing a professional wedding organiser.

This need not necessarily be an extra cost, either. Ethically minded wedding planners will work well within your budget, and will ensure you keep to it, helping you save on all those little extras that creep into the mix along the waty! They'll help you find the ideal suppliers to create an eco-friendly wedding that suits you.

Wedding planning is now a well established business in the UK and, although there are not many that are truly green, any creative wedding coordinator, planner, event organiser or stylist should be able to work to your brief and help you create a truly natural wedding within your budget.
