Wink weddings are the ultimate dream, but they’re also the most terrifying.
In an effort to make your day more memorable, we asked some of the most loved and treasured wedding planning businesses in Australia to share their secrets.
What’s in it for you?
Read on to find out what makes a wedding day such a special one.
Bride-to-be: “If you are going to be a bridesmaid, your first date is going to start with a wedding dress.
You have a dress and a suit and a tie.
You get to walk down the aisle and walk into the church, you have the whole ceremony in the church.
You want to have that special moment with the person you love.
If you are a groom, your date will start with that groom, and then you go back to your hotel room and you have a reception with the bride.
That’s the first time you go out on your own and have your own little moment with your own people.
Then it’s a big, big wedding.
It’s so much fun.”
Bride-to -be: It’s a bit like a dream: the bride goes to the altar, the groom walks down the altar to the bride, and the couple is in the arms of their god.
They have all this love, all this joy, and they can’t wait to have their first kiss.
Bride-of-one: “When you are planning a wedding, it’s very important to know how you will spend the day.
You are going through a big transition, but the plan is always the same.
The plan is to be there when you get there and spend the evening together.
You will have a big wedding, but you will be with each other.
It is really important that you make your plans with a plan that is achievable.
The bride will be a bride and the groom will be the groom, but we both know that’s not going to happen.
We are going for this big, beautiful wedding.
Bride to brides: “Wedding photography is not as glamorous as it is for a bride to bridal shoot.
It takes a lot of time and effort.
The wedding photography business is not glamorous.
It requires a lot more time and energy than a wedding photographer, and there are a lot fewer opportunities to do a wedding.
“Bride to groom: “I think you will love your first wedding.
There is so much that can be accomplished, and it is such an amazing experience.
But you will also be a couple, and you will have lots of fun.
You’ll get to do what you love and enjoy with your family and friends.
It will be one of the best, happiest, most special weddings you will ever go to.
Wedding planning wedding: “A lot of people say that they are so busy with their families that they don’t have time to plan weddings.
The idea of planning weddings, especially at the end of your life, it really can be overwhelming.
If I had to give a advice to my young brides and grooms, they would say to think about the time you spend with your families.
Think about what they do, think about what your family does, and think about how you can give them the best wedding experience possible.”
Bride and groom: The bride and groom have a lot in common.
They both want a beautiful wedding and they both want to spend the whole day together.
Bride of one: “My idea of a happy wedding is to spend two or three hours with your friends.
I’m thinking of my mum and her friends, I’m planning the day out, I am going to make a toast and then I’m going to sit down and I’m looking at all the photos of all the lovely couples that have gone through this process and they are going out on their own.
Then I’m sitting down with them and they’re having a fantastic time, and we all get to go to their place and we get to talk about it.”
Bride of the bride: “The best way to make that big, happy, beautiful day is to go into a wedding venue and have a group photo.
You go into the venue and you look around, you see everyone.
You look at each other and you feel that bond.
You feel like you are really part of a family and you are happy together.
It creates the most beautiful memories for all the couples.”
Bride’s mother: “Having a group photograph with your mother is a really special moment, and having that experience of looking at her photos is very special.
When she is talking to you and she is asking questions about the pictures, you feel like your mum is there, you are in your life.
You don’t really get to see the wedding as much, so having that time together is really special.
It brings the most joy to the couple and the family, it is a big day for both of them.” Bride
