Collaborative Post¦ Everyone has their own idea of what makes a wedding perfect, and of course, there are no set rules to how your wedding should be. It’s your special day after all, and it should turn out to be exactly how you want it – even if it’s unconventional. Even so, there are some things that your wedding would feel a little empty without – the core essentials that every wedding needs. It’s not about conforming to tradition but rather making sure your day has everything it needs before you start planning and adding in everything else. If you’re working around a tight budget, you should factor in the things you can’t go without before anything else.
A wedding planner
The more ambitious your wedding, the more pressure you’ll have on you to make sure the day goes well. You’ve got a lot of guests to think about, and making sure your day is special for you, while also entertaining for them can be very tricky. There are a lot of needs to cater to, and you’ll want the help of someone who has done this before. Most people don’t have experience in wedding planning, so you shouldn’t expect to be an expert on the topic. Wedding planners can be a great source of insight when planning, so don’t be afraid to use their services to help make sure your wedding is planned as well as it can be.
A professional photographer
Once your wedding has ended, you’re going to want something to remember it by, and a quality wedding photographer can help you with that. Having someone experienced capture every special moment of your day is a must, and this is something that you can’t afford to go without. Every photographer has a different rate, but it’s important to understand that despite the price – the pictures of your wedding are something you’re going to be keeping and looking at for the rest of your life. Photographers are a core part of any wedding.
Having music is a must for any event – even if not just for you, but for your guests. It helps to set the atmosphere, and you can communicate with your hired musicians about what music you would like to be played during each stage of your wedding.
One of the most basic things that any wedding would miss is flowers. They’re a core part of the decorations for most weddings and venues, and without a florist – your wedding might feel a little bare. You’ll find that when it comes to choosing flowers for your wedding, there are an overwhelming amount of choices, whether it’s species, colours, or size – it can be a lot to process. A professional florist can help you to decide on something that’s perfect for your wedding, and make sure you have enough to decorate your venue properly. It might not be your first thought when you’re thinking of vendors for your wedding – but you can’t afford to go without a florist.
