KNOT & POP
Having worked in PR, marketing and events for ten years, ubertalented Susie founded her award-winning wedding planning company in 2013 1 Wear your wedding shoes in, and pack some fancy flats. There’s nothing worse than sore feet a few hours into your wedding day. Along with that, pack a ‘care kit’ that you can have a bridesmaid look after, for any little touch-ups through the day and evening. 2 Next time you’re at a wedding, count up the number of leftover favours at the end of the evening. If you’re on a budget, they’re something you can pop into ‘Optional Extras’! 3 It’s nice to layer up the entertainment in the evening, so consider booking a photo booth or having a dressing-up box for the dance floor with some silly props. The thrill of the photo booth never dies! 4 Along with the first dance, get a group ‘last dance’ tune decided. It’s such a fun and memorable way to round off the big day. 5 A wedding takes many hours to plan and set up, so be realistic with what’s manageable alongside your working/family life, and see what additional support you can call on – whether it be from a trusted wedding planner or supportive family member. 6 Don’t forget the de-rig! Once the confetti has settled and everyone’s gone home, there’s a wedding to pack up. Make sure you get others to do this for you as you want to be enjoying your first day of marital bliss, not lost in boxes, tapes, lugging and lifting.
