So you’re getting married! This is an incredibly exciting time in your life and the start of a new chapter. But it’s also very daunting. Over the next few months, you’ll have so much to organize and plan with your partner. 


Creating a magical day that you’ll both never forget, there are certain things that you’ll want to tick off your checklist ahead of the smaller details – such as designing the centerpieces, planning the bachelor and bachelorette parties and purchasing your wedding cake.


To give you a head start, here are the top 5 things you’ll need to do before you tie the knot!


  • Find a Venue



At the start of the process, spend some time looking at various wedding venues throughout your city. Alternatively, if you want to do a destination wedding, now is the time to book a flight and head out to a venue that’s further away.


When looking at wedding venues, you’ll want to find one that matches you and your partner’s tastes, can accommodate all of the guests that you want to invite and ensure that it fits within your budget. Wedding venues aren’t cheap, but if you research in advance, you’ll find one that doesn’t break the bank. 



  • Send Out Save the Dates and Invites 



Once you’ve settled on a wedding venue and you’ve put down your deposit, it’s time to send out the save the dates. On this save the date, you should include the date that you’re getting married and a little bit of information about the location that you’re having your wedding in. This will give your guests a taste of what’s to come and guarantee that they will be free on the day.


A few months before the wedding, you should then send out formal invites to all of your day guests and reception invites to others that aren’t included on the day. When you get all of your RSVPs back, you can start to create a seating plan for your wedding breakfast. 


  • Buy Your Outfits



This is perhaps the most exciting part of the planning process. During this stage, both you and your partner will buy your outfits, as well as your bridesmaid and groomsmen’s outfits.


Make sure that you plan this at least 6 months in advance of the big day, however, in case you require any alterations beforehand. During your dress fitting, you’ll want to invite all of your close friends and family – just make sure that you don’t have too many people though, as you could find that there are too many opinions flying around when you’re trying dresses on!



  • Purchase Your Wedding Bands



This is a wonderful experience for you both; around 5 months before your wedding, head out with your partner and purchase your wedding bands. With so many on offer in a range of budgets and styles (such as the Tacori Wedding Bands), you’re bound to find the right ones for you. 



  • Arrange Catering, Photographers, Flowers etc.



Once you’ve got all the above in place, you’ll want to think about who you want to cater your wedding, what photographer (if you’re having one) you want to hire, the flowers you want and if you want to have any evening entertainment. 


In terms of catering, you’ll want to sample various suppliers and menus before you settle on one. You want a menu that appeals to all palettes – so it’s a good idea to opt for a simpler dish. 


Similarly, with a photographer, flowers and evening entertainment, it’s worth looking at several different suppliers in order to get a better insight into which one is most suitable for your day.

If you are hosting a party or an event then you will inevitably want to put on an amazing day and ensure that everybody who is there has a fantastic time. There are so many elements which go into a party and it is not easy organizing and planning one. 


You need to think about what food and drink to supply, where to host it, who to invite, what music to play and if any other form of entertainment is needed… the list is simply endless. If you carefully pre plan every aspect of the party then you are assured to have it sorted for the big day and it will all feel extremely worthwhile in the end when everybody leaves satisfied and impressed.


One of the things you need to consider when organizing a party is where to get your catering crockery from. This is something which is often overlooked and simply forgotten about, I cannot tell you how many times people throwing a bash have forgotten to sort out some tableware and have ended up stuck in a bit of a rut. 


I suppose it is one of those things that you assume is always there so it can easily be forgotten about, but it can obviously cause a massive problem in the end as no one wants to go to a party to be eating their food with their hands. Of course, with finger buffets, including treats like those from, less cutlery is going to be needed, and so this is definitely a good idea. 


There are certain things you should look for when you are deciding where to get your catering crockery from in order to ensure that you get the best there is out there. After all, you want every element of your party to be perfect. 


First and foremost, the most obvious aspect you need to consider is price. Nobody wants to cause a massive dent in their bank balance so I am certainly not going to advise you to go for the most expensive crockery available. Nevertheless, I also would not advise to go for the cheapest either as you run a massive risk of a lack of quality and you do not want your party to appear tacky. The best thing to do is go for something in the mid price range. 


You should also go for a company which has had a lot of experience in the industry and has been running for several years. This shows that they have vast experience and knowledge of dealing with all types of parties and clients and thus you can rest assured that they will have the capacity to help you. I would also recommend that you do a little bit of background research online to see if previous clients have been happy with the service they have received. You will be able to gage an idea of whether people seem altogether happy about their experience or if people are warning you to try somewhere else.


If you put in a little bit of thought along the way I am sure your party will run a lot smoother – Good luck and enjoy your day!
