Wedding Planning Tips from Real Couples

In the midst of your wedding planning? Often some of the most helpful pieces of wedding advice come from married couples. With that in mind, we hope you’ll enjoy these wedding planning tips from some of the wonderful Morden Hall newlyweds.

“Relax and enjoy it all together. You’ll miss it when it’s over! Keep spread sheets and Pinterest boards to organise your ideas.”

Ruth and Simon

“Choose your bridesmaids carefully, making sure they are going to be there to support you (practically, mentally or both) all the way through the preparations and on the day itself. They should be people whose judgement you trust, and who you know will be honest with you.”

Jacqueline and Philip

“Before confirming with suppliers, check thoroughly if there are any bad reviews and comments about the company. It’s better to avoid any nasty surprises. Try to find suppliers based close to the venue, reducing delivery costs.”

Hazel and Michael

“Rely on your partner to help. We were fortunate that both of us wanted to be super involved. You have your vision, so share it. The highs and lows are pulling it all together.”

Shelly and Gemmel

“Don’t let other people try to impose their preferences on your wedding. Also, set sensible ranges for your budget and your schedule and stick to them.”

Maggie and Deborah

“No matter how organised you are, there are some things you just can’t do until the last minute and the month before. Try not to let this stress you out. Make sure you keep your weekends free for the month before your big day.”

Linda and Adam

“Be smart with your budget. We used the father of the groom’s car to transport the bridesmaids, which allowed us to use money in other ways. Our best man’s mother makes the best cakes, so when she offered to bake ours, we snapped up her offer!”

Laura and Alex

“Don’t stress about the details or about anything going wrong on the day. Most people won’t notice the mistakes and will just love being with you on your special day. Also try to make sure you spend time dancing with your guests. The day and night go so quickly - before you know it, it’s over.”

Vicky and Lalit

“The things you think are the most important right now (such as NEEDING a particular flower) really don’t matter in the long run. It’s easy to get caught up in the tiniest of details, but it’s so important to remember that, at the end of the day, you’re doing all of this to marry the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with.”

Emily and Dominic

“Try to be as calm and present on the day as possible. Take as much in as you can because it goes by so quickly.”

Candice and Rael
