Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide


Planning is the key to your dream wedding day


WHEN deciding on a theme for your wedding, the first thing to do is create a clear vision of what you want for your day.

Whether you envision an outdoor reception under the stars, or a formal banquet fit for royalty, it s good to think about what you want early.

While it can be fun to create wedding decoration­s yourself, there are places you can hire decoration­s from. Event hire companies and some venues offer items such as place-card holders, props, lighting, cutlery, funky seating and photo booths. Going with this option could mean less stress for you.

If you are going down the DIY path there are many websites and social media pages where you can sell off your creations after your big day.

If you are placing flowers around the venue, it can be a good idea to match those with the bride’s bouquet.

Choosing a wedding theme

Things to consider:

What have you always pictured your wedding to look like? Many brides have an idea of what they want their wedding to look like, so base any decoration­s on that.

What will work at your venue? Think about your venue. Is your venue inside or outside? Do the decoration­s you have in mind match the venue? Could they blow away in the wind?

Choosing the bouquet

When selecting your bouquet and flowers ask yourself: :: Will it go with your dress? :: Will it be heavy? :: How will you carry your bouquet? :: Will it be easy to handle and pass to your bridesmaid­s? :: Will it hide detail on your dress? :: Speak with your florist about what is in season and what works best for you.
