They put a ring on it! Now you’ve said yes, gone into total happiness overdrive, taken all of the ring selfies and popped a few celebratory bottles.. it’s time to start planning. But don’t worry, the planning process couldn’t be more simple with our amazing events team, plus this handy guide!
Plan an engagement party
Step One: Celebrate with all of your nearest and dearest at your engagement party. This event will set the scene for the rest of your celebrations, so make it special. Get the party planning started here.
Pick a theme
Are you planning a classic black tie event? Or a casual and carefree seaside celebration, or maybe something in the winter months? Choosing your theme early on will make the rest of the planning much easier.
Start looking for a venue
After the engagement party dust has settled, it’s time to start looking at locations including your ceremony, reception and accommodation venues. A few favs of ours include Gibsons Beach for little slice of waterside I dos, followed by a Sunset Room reception and a night in one of our stunning rooms – have you seen them yet?
It’s time to go shopping!
Finalise guest list and send out invites
Plan styling and florals
Styling should be the next on the list. Once your theme is decided, styling and florals should come quite easily. This is also around the right time to start thinking about additional add ons such as your photobooth, DJs etc.
No wedding is complete without something sweet, right? It’s time to get cake tasting! Some other tasty treat options could be a donut wall or a lolly station.
It’s time to party!
Now the hard work is all done, it’s time to party! It’s time to frock up, say I do and celebrate with your nearest and dearest and let our talented team take care of the rest. For some past real weddings the we love, click here..
