If you are planning to pop the question in 2021, there is a lot to organise to make sure that your special day is one to be remembered for all the right reasons. Even during these troubling times, life must go on and with that in mind, here are a few tips to help make your wedding party go with a bang!
- Choosing the venue – If you choose a venue that has extensive experience in handling wedding parties, they would have all the amenities and services you would need. The ideal situation would be an afternoon buffet in a country garden, then moving into a dining hall for an evening of fun and entertainment. A hotel makes for the perfect venue as guests can stay overnight if they are a little ‘worse for wear’; no one wants to risk their driving licence.
- Videographer – Source a Central Coast wedding photographer with extensive experience and check out their portfolio (nothing else really matters) and decide on the video locations and still images. Some videographers will write the final cut onto a printed DVD to give to all your guests as a keepsake, which is the best way to record the event.
- Entertainment – This needs to be right if you want a full dance floor; you know your guests and can either ask the resident DJ to handle things or bring in a third-party DJ, who will play your music selections and playlists. You could go for a live band, but make sure they have a great reputation for swinging parties.
- Make your Wedding Party Unique – There should be something that sets your party apart from others; it could be a theme like the 1920s, or asking guests to bring certain items that will come in handy with a few fun games. The Internet is a wealth of information and Googling ‘fun wedding party games’ will bring instant results. There should be some surprises, perhaps a mystery guest and a search online will help you find local performers to create a unique party experience that will be remembered with fondness.
Creating lists and clever use of the Internet will ensure that you have everything under control and keep in regular touch with all third-party vendors and, of course, make sure the venue booking is confirmed.
Hire the best local photographer to do a video and still package to record the event and you will have something to show your grandkids in a few years.
