How To Organizing a Wedding And Family Events?

Organising a Wedding

Allow plenty of time for planning so that you can be sure to have the arrangements that you would like.

Halls, caterers, and florists are usually booked up a long time in advance, so you may need to make arrangements with them up to a year before the wedding date.

Coordinating Plans

  • Organising tasks Write out a countdown list that states the nature and time of each task to be done so that all of the arrangements are made at the right time. Check off tasks as you complete them.
  • Choosing guests Make a provisional guest list with your partner. Allow roughly equal numbers of guests for each of your families.
  • Ordering clothes If you are having clothes made, allow sufficient time for fittings.
  • Preparing maps Draw simple maps showing how to reach the wedding venues. Include a map with each invitation.

Arranging a Ceremony

  • Planning a religious service Reserve the church or temple and official well in advance. If there are other weddings on that day, contact the families involved to ask if you can share flowers and decorations.
  • Choosing a site You can have a religious ceremony in places other than a church or synagogue. For example, you may wish to use a historic house or a garden.
  • Planning a secular service You can use an official form of ceremony or write a service yourself. Arrange to have an official witness or a registrar present to certify the marriage.

Working Out Expenses

  • Planning a budget Find out the cost of every element in advance, down to minor items such as stationery. Choose a range of options for each, and compare prices and quality.
  • Controlling food costs If you intend to use a caterer, take care to keep track of the costs. Ask die caterer for a written estimate specifying what is included in the price.
  • Trimming costs If you have a limited budget, look for ways in which to reduce costs. For example, ask family or friends to help with preparing food, grow your own plants for displays, or design and print stationery on a computer.

Planning a Reception

  • Choosing a site Try to choose a reception place that is not far from the ceremony site so that guests will not have to travel a long way.
  • Selecting food Decide how- formal the reception will be so that you know whether to plan finger food, a buffet, or a full service with waiters.
  • Ordering drinks Ask for more than you think you need. Suppliers will often take back any unopened bottles.
  • Listing presents Ask a friend or relative to mark the name of the giver on the label of each wedding present so that you will be able to write thank-you letters after the wedding.

Traditional Tip

Making a gift for guests Prepare small cloth hags of Jordan almonds or potpourri as “favours” for the guests at a wedding. Give out the favours after the wedding meal.

Making Preparations

If you are organising an intimate family occasion, it is best to create a relaxed atmosphere where everyone can easily mingle and enjoy themselves, rather than making complex plans.

  • Guests If you are holding a family event at home, do not invite so many people that your home will be uncomfortably crowded.
  • Food When doing your own cooking, make some dishes beforehand and freeze them. Buy some ready-made dishes as well, so that you do not need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
