Here at The Personalised Wedding Company (TPWC) we are gearing up for this years wedding season which is fast approaching. February signals that all important 6 month warning for all bride to be's. The future Newlyweds need to be planning for their 6 month countdown. Here are a few things that need to be done around the 6 month mark that will help ease the last few months leading up to the big day.
1. Get your personalised bridesmaid thank you gifts - Being in the personalised wedding business for some years now, we know how much stress it can bring if you are waiting for those last minute bridal party gifts to arrive and for so many it can be a last minute thought. We recommend getting in early with these gifts to ensure you get exactly what you want and within the time frame you need them for. A growing trend is to fill boxes with thank you items for the maid of honour and bridesmaids. With that in mind we have been working on our very own boxes and with quality in mind have produced some of the very best you can buy. Our luxury gift box features a ribbon on the front and come printed with real foil to give that quality feel. They can be personalised to add that extra special touch for your bridal party. TPWC tip - Ensure you double check the personalised details before submitting the order to avoid disappointment when they arrive.
2. Order your wedding stationery - This is a vital part to get done in order to be able to send them out in time. You may find that stationery suppliers will start to get busy and therefore you could find yourself waiting slightly longer for your stationery to arrive. TPWC tip - Order the thank you card with your traditional items to ensure the print colour matches your invitations, orders of service and place cards.
3. Purchase your wedding cake - Hopefully you have been tasting all those lovely choices that can be made up on a wedding cake. We would advise ordering the cake and confirm those little details that will set your wedding cake apart from the rest. TPWC tip - To save a little money you can make your own cheese board cake. It kills two birds with one stone and is a quirky way to display your cheese board.
4. Size up and buy your bridal party dresses and groomsman suits - It’s the perfect time to finalise your bridesmaid dress colour scheme and to ensure your groomsman complement the groom. TPWC tip - to help with the bank balance some suit hire companies will have a deal to save the grooms hire fee if you have a certain amount of groomsman. It might not be much but every little saving helps.
Finally we want to say, enjoy these final few months. Its a time to get together with friends and family and you should truly cherish those moments.
