Before your Wedding Day

You’ve sorted your luxury wedding venue, a delicious menu, and you’ve just about learnt your speech. But, in the last few months running up to the wedding, it will feel essential to get the finer details of your day, just right. Wedding invitations and gift lists can be fraught with difficulties, especially if you’re juggling traditional wedding etiquette and the desire to do things a little bit differently. Have an open discussion together about traditional gift lists and alternative options for gift lists, so that you don’t end up with 5 toasters and 3 gravy boats cluttering up your wedding venue on the day. Once you know exactly how you want to go about the wedding invitation etiquette, remember to think about if you need any other wedding stationary, such as place cards if your wedding venue doesn’t provide these. Often, ordering it all together can get you a good deal. 

With the big day just around the corner, you may be asked if you’re having a rehearsal dinner. Many British couples might not have heard of these as it’s a typically an American tradition, but, particularly if your families haven’t met before, check out our advice on rehearsal dinners and you’ll have yours organised in no time. Then all you need to do is check through our packing list, make sure you’ve checked and double checked everything, and then you’re off to your wedding venue!
