Choices to be made when planning your Wedding Day

Planning a wedding needn’t be a stressful undertaking and most Brides admit that after the fact they actually really enjoyed it on the lead-up to their big day. In the months and years prior to the Wedding Day there are so many choices that need to be made. We take a look at some of the more important ones that you can get out of the way early in the preparation process, leaving you free to plan the little details without any pressure.

Save the Date
It goes without saying, that the very first thing you need to do is decide on a date for your wedding day. Once this has been set in stone you can then go about making all the other arrangements and sending out those much anticipated ‘save the date’ cards to family and friends.

Choosing a Wedding Ceremony Venue
With the arrival of the 21st Century in Ireland came a vast difference in the way we plan weddings. The traditional church wedding became just another choice instead of being the only one for many decades. Today we can choose from a church wedding, a registry office or one of the many indoor and outdoor venues  now registered with the HSE. Take a look at their website for some great ideas and choose somewhere unique for your very special day.

Choosing a Reception Venue
Ireland, without doubt has some of the most impressive reception venues in all of Europe and our breath-taking scenery and landscapes make for some very special settings indeed. You can choose from a country house hotel, a local restaurant or the grandest of castles! Keep in mind that venues need to be booked well in advance to guarantee your date of choice.

Making a Guest List
Whilst you needn’t produce a finalised guest list until the weeks prior to your wedding, it would be advantageous to you and your beholden to have a good idea of numbers well in advance. This will allow you to set a budget and get quotes from venues in your location of choice.

Choosing the Bridal & Grooms party
One of the very first things you should do is decide upon those friends and family closest to you and invite them to be part of your Bridal and Grooms parties. This will allow them to prepare in advance without any last minute panics and will ensure you have their assistance in the run up to the big day.

Once you have all the basics above covered, the rest will fall into place with an organized checklist and a calm approach. So what remains that can be done in the following months?

• Purchase the wedding rings
• Bridal and bridesmaids dresses
• Groom and groomsmen suits
• Transport
• Florists
• Music
• Entertainment
• Menu choices
• Videographer (that’s me!)
• Photographer
• Wedding stationery
• Gifts & favours
• Hairdresser appointments
• Makeup appointments
• Venue decorations
• Guest book
• Centrepieces
• The Wedding Cake
• And of course………The Honeymoon!

Should  you hire a wedding videographer ?

I’ve talked with many couples who have chosen not to hire a professional wedding videographer to document their wedding day Their main reason: Well its another exspence, our budget will not stretch that far and Uncle John has an iPhone and he can record the vows on it.

When it boils down to it, you can not put a price  on a video video like this:  Emotion. Sound. Movement. HD quality capturing moments that can’t be repeated ever again!

If you are planing your wedding and you are not sure about hiring a professional wedding videographer, why not contact myself Eamon here at Drangan Video  who will be more than happy to discuss  having your wedding day documented  on film.
