The Simple Wedding Planning Checklist

Getting married? Congratulations! While this is going to be one of the most exciting and memorable moments of your life, it’s going to take a lot of planning to get there. But not to worry, we’ve put together a list to help you tick off the main elements you need to plan for to get you started.


One of the first decisions you are going to have to make is choosing where to hold your wedding. After all, this one decision is going to influence the rest of your choices.

The venue you choose is heavily going to depend on your budget. Larger halls with more seating is going to set you back more. If you have a smaller guest list, you may be able to choose more cost effective options like a garden. For those who love the outdoors, a beach, garden or vineyard could be the way to go – just remember to take weather into account.


Think of a wedding and you’ll automatically envision gorgeous dresses and perfectly tailored suits. Planning your outfit could entail visits to formal wear providers with a group of friends or family. Of course, don’t feel like you have to wear the best of everything from top end stores, the perfect outfit for you could be found in second hand shops or online. For those who are holding a beach wedding, going a little more casual may be the way to go – you could even forgo shoes if you so choose.


Now that you’ve picked your venue, do you have a theme you would like to stick to? Country chic, classical, floral beauty … the only limit is your imagination. Once you’ve picked your theme, you can start having a think of the decorations you want to include. Themes do not have to be extravagant, they can be as simple as choosing three colours you really love and tying those into your bouquets and centrepieces.


It isn’t a celebration without some great food to enjoy and share. Just like the theme, this can be extravagant or as simple as you want it to be, whether it is providing a sit down entrée, main and dessert or a stand up affair with canapés.


When it comes to the day of the wedding the excitement of the event could have you feeling a little frazzled. Why not arrive at your big day in complete luxury and hire yourself a limo for the day? Not only will you be able to travel with a group of loved ones, you will be treated like a celebrity and love every minute of it.
