Tips On Organizing A Successful Wedding Reception In Short Notice
As much as we’d like, life simply does not allow us the luxury of choosing how certain things go or how certain plans work out. Naturally, if given the choice, many of us would take a while to organize and put together a big event such as a wedding. But sometimes, circumstances simply do not allow this; and sometimes, we don’t want to wait too long to officially become a part of our loved ones’ life. If you are planning a short notice wedding, and are afraid it would mess up due to the short period you have to see it through; don’t worry any longer. Here are our experts tips and suggestions…
Say yes to help
There’s a moment and place to be independent; and organizing an event this big is not one of those moments. To meet your short notice function successfully, don’t hesitate to ask for help. Do you know anyone with a particular talent for organizing events? Perhaps he/she is the family’s part planner. Getting the help of this person will make planning your own event much easier. Apart from organizing, you can also employ the help of your friends for the food, decorating the wedding reception Melbourne, as well as sending out the invitations.
Know when to bring in the professionals
If you can afford it, say yes to professional help. Even though your friend or family member might do a pretty good job at organizing your special day, it goes without saying that if it’s a professional, you’ll definitely feel more confident and comfortable about handing over the responsibility. Take a wedding stylist for example. You might be great at makeup; but unless you have plenty of time to practice your “look”, things are inevitably going to go wrong. Especially when you add nerves to the mix.
Keep your guest list small
Having a small amount of people to cater to will make organizing an event this important much easier. This is especially true when you’d have to consider people’s availability for your special day. Having a small guest list means you have less people to send invitations to, get door gifts for, and also less people to feed.
Keep things simple
Whether you are using professional help, or being a super hero and handling all the organizing details yourself, one thing that is going to help you out greatly, is constantly reminding yourself to keep things simple. It’s hard to mess up something in a big way if the details are simple. This can apply to the venue, the guest list, the decorations, the food and also the program for the day as well.
