From a-z

I'm new to the site, and have been brousing for a while.

Can you guys give me a list of what you need to buy or plan for a wedding, from cakes to cars, and suits to seating plans.

I'd like to start to plan things, so want to consider everything. :\)


  • aisles - to decorate or not...depending on if you're having a church wedding!

    bank account - joint, savings?

    cake - who, what type, how much, when do you serve it?

    debt - avoid like the plague by budgeting!

    end time - pretty self explanatory, avoiding long 'hang around' periods

    favours - what to have and how to display

    guests - who to include when and where will they stay?

    hotels - do you need to book in advance for guests

    invitations - what to include, where to buy from?

    jewellery - how much?

    k - cant think of one!

    little guests - babies or not???

    marriage - what you need to make it all legal

    night guests - any extras, how will you make them feel welcome?

    other half - how are his/her needs being met in your plans?

    plus ones - will you have these in invites?

    q - no idea what to put so will say dress!

    random - hidden extras such as postage!

    stationery - table plans, place cards etc

    timings/transport - self explanatory

    unexpected things - you can't plan for everything but try anyway!

    value for money - take your time and shop around

    walk arounds - your venue and grounds to see where the best shots could be taken

    x - ??

    y - ??

    z - ??
