Revisit your budget
Are there any additions that you would like to make since first drafting your wedding budget breakdown? Do you have any spare budget that you would like to use to add anything in or to upgrade an element and make the day even more special?
Revisiting your budget will help you feel on track and keep things in check when planning your wedding.
Touch base with your suppliers
We always touch base with our Brides and Grooms at the start of the year to let them know we haven’t gone anywhere over the Christmas period. Our team makes it a priority to keep them informed with timely updates as they plan for their special day! Get your wedding off to a great start this year by checking in with any suppliers you're still waiting on! Just touching base to wish them a Happy New Year will ensure you’re back on their radar and help get the ball rolling. It can prompt you to ask any logical questions you may have overlooked during the booking process and start to tick things off your to-do list. A bit of communication can go a long way toward giving yourself peace of mind as the special day approaches, so don't forget to drop those friendly messages out there!
Get your Bridal Party Together
Get your nearest and dearest on a zoom before the big day to ensure everyone is up-to-date with all the details! (Yes, we know you’re all sick of zoom, but we are suggesting it)! You can use this time to discuss roles, readings, and speeches for your special event. It’s also an opportunity to talk through any logistics that will help make sure everything runs smoothly both leading up to and following the wedding celebrations.
Gathering all the Bridal Party for a chat to ensure everyone is up-to-speed on their big day responsibilities. Make it an in-person get-scheduled if you're all local - nothing beats face time when it comes to preparing and planning!!
Send out your invitations and save the dates if you haven’t already done so.
Get your wedding invites out in the fresh start of 2023! We all know how packed our diaries can become, and by ensuring those save-the-dates are sent off early you'll help ensure everyone has ample time to prioritize both your special day - plus any other magical moments they already have planned. Make this year one for memories that will last a lifetime with invitations arriving nice and early.
Consider your on-the-day logistics
Don't forget the often-overlooked elements! Make sure to ask all of the details, such as who will help you distribute favours and doublecheck seating arrangements. You'll also need someone on hand to cue when it's time for you and your Bridesmaids to walk down that aisle - because this moment is especially important! Your special day should feel effortless and stress-free! Sometimes, a friend or the venue can take care of some elements, however, hiring an experienced wedding manager to ensure your vision is flawlessly executed can’t be beaten. Our on-the-day wedding management service can be added separately to our planning services. With all these options you're guaranteed peace of mind that everything will run as smoothly as possible - leaving you free to enjoy every moment without worrying about details.
