Are you planning to get married soon? It’s normal to feel overwhelmed at the amount of organisational effort that must take place in order to ensure this important event is taken care of. Even with the best funding in the world, planning this event can prove stressful for anyone. In this stress, we can often find ourselves focused on the massive considerations at the cost of the smaller elements that give a wedding the soul it needs. Take a look at three small investments that you should not overlook:
There are many smaller costs that prospective newlyweds should prioritise more, as these can help the event take on a new life. You might desire the perfect dress, the perfect event space, the perfect place to conduct your vows and the perfect invitee list, but consider our list of additionally perfect elements to bring to your wedding, and the entire process will feel more complete:
The DJ isn’t just someone who turns up, plays a few records to keep the social gathering from going stale, and leaves paid well for service barely rendered. A DJ is an artist, someone who provides the real atmosphere of a room, the hidden social lubricant even more effective than alcohol. The DJ can help you provide the basis for your first dance, and help people come together in a relaxing and joyful celebration. Their unseen actions can help families break the ice with one another, can help children feel engaged despite a long day, and can genuinely put a smile on the face of the relatives you care deeply about. Great DJ hire is a steal at the prices often quoted, so you really have nothing to lose for ensuring this professional is accommodated and paid for your wedding day. They will be grateful to help you achieve the day of your dreams.
It might be a good idea to open a free bar for your wedding. This depends on the religious setup and budget of your family. Of course, it is not required. Nor is it essential even for those without religion. However, if you wish to ensure your post-wedding celebrations are jovial, it’s often a good idea to pay the upfront cost for a full bar hire for the night. This can run into the thousands, but it can help a wedding event keep that informal yet jolly tone you may be looking for. Just be sure to consider your family and certain individuals relationships to alcohol at this event, as certain concessions may need to be had.
Of course, you’re not going to hire a party clown for your wedding. Or you might, we’re not ones to judge. However, if you’re not able to occupy your children in the after-ceremony proceedings, they can often become cranky and tired. Simply allowing them to bring handheld game consoles might be a good idea, investing in some simple colouring books for the dinner table or allowing a small area of the celebratory hall for toys you have brought can allow children to stay engaged and less testing than they might be without these materials.
With these small investments, you’re sure to enjoy one of the best wedding celebrations, better than you could have imagined.
