Planning Your Wedding 

By Features Desk

Tuesday, August 27, 2019.

Everyone’s different and those differences really show when it comes to planning those big life events. We’re talking, of course, about weddings and there aren’t many other events that show off your unique characters than a wedding ceremony and celebrations.

Everyone loves a wedding day, full of love, hope and the promise of great food, great company and great music. In this post, we take a look at two of those aspects and take a walk through some of the options you might consider to make your wedding go off with a bang.

Great Food

Not everyone has the skills to cater for a large group of people, which is why choosing your catering is crucial to getting the menu you want. Whether you’re looking for a specialist in one particular type of food, African, Asian or Carribbean for example, or haven’t yet arrived at any firm decisions, you need to find caterers you can talk through your options with.

Start by talking through your budget and figuring out if you’re asking them to cater for two meals or one. You can then think about hot or cold buffet option, three course meals, hog roasts and so on until you find a solution that fits into your budget. Your caterer will probably also offer you the option of hors d'oeuvres on arrival and ask if you will be providing the alcohol.

Great Music

No wedding is complete without some evening entertainment and getting the music just right is an important part of the considerations. You might love the full sound of a big band who will play all your favourite songs from across the years and bring an energy that keeps even the oldest great aunt up and dancing.

The best way to know what kind of band you like is to go and listen to them. Find a group in your area, through https://www.alivenetwork.com/hirelivemusic/wedding_bands_in.asp?area=Oxfordshire for example and go along and see what you think.

You might find that actually that funky two-piece with the double bass and drum were much more up your street, so keep an open mind when conducting your research.

The other alternative is the classic wedding DJ. Possibly less of a challenge logistically, the professional DJ will supply all his own equipment including lights and even a smoke machine.

Talk through with them the style of music you want them to play and get your guests on that dance floor.

Your wedding, your style, done your way. Get that research underway and find the perfect mix of delicious food and an amazing soundtrack that’s going to give your wedding the title of best day ever. Don’t be afraid to go against the flow and do it just the way that makes sense to you and your partner. Do it your way and create memories that you love to talk about for years to come, as you think about how you celebrated the best day of your life. 

Best Day Ever!
