#1 So you’re planning your wedding, an introduction

July 7th, 2015|

“Which leg must the garter go on?” A question I have heard so many times and every time my answer stays the same, “Whichever side is most comfortable.” This answer, I feel, covers more than just the traditional garland of lace around your thigh. In modern wedding planning times, things are quite confusing, we seem to see the need to keep to tradition but try our best to remain contemporary and different. There are so many voices telling us how, what, where, when, etc that we tend to lose our own identity in the whole wedding planning scenario. Pinterest dictates that the level of your wedding should be extremely high and your guests should leave feeling that they have been involved in a show op epic fairytale proportions. Um, no pressure.

#2 So you’re planning your wedding, where to start

July 6th, 2015|

It almost feels like a race or a long journey which is about to start. I get emails stating that they have begun their wedding planning, as if the starters gun has gone off and now they are in the race, all in, raring to go, collect as much information as possible, get those files filled with printed emails of quotes, populate the Pinterest board and spend the next 20 weekends driving from venue to venue looking for that perfect spot that suits their tight budget. It all sounds possibly normal doesn’t it? Familiar?

#3 So you’re planning your wedding, choosing a venue

July 5th, 2015|

So it used to be easy, have a chat to your local church minister, organise the church, then order a ridiculous amount of drapes and make the town hall look slightly better than it did when you were there for your matric dance. Add some flowers from your Aunt who likes flowers and get your gran to make a cake. Your brother likes music so he will bring his collection and blast the old folk with his modern tunes. Choosing a venue is so easy isn’t it…

#4 So you’re planning your wedding, choosing your photographer

July 4th, 2015|

To begin with, let me strongly say this: your wedding day does not and should not revolve around the photographs or the photographer. Your wedding is not a film production or a cover shoot for a glossy magazine; it is about you and your partner celebrating your love and dedication to each other in front of and together with your family and friends.
