HOW TO SAVE MONEY Weddings costs can add up quickly so devise a plan and stick to it PLANNING a wedding can be a stressful and expensive experience, so to keep the stress down you should always remember the costs. Break down your budget early to reduce the stress later on. According to MoneySmart, the average Australian wedding costs $36,200. Food, alcohol and the venue take up most of that cost, averaging $18,683. Clothing comes next at $4271, photography averages about $3982, while entertainment, decorations and transport/accommodation all average about $2000 each. Australians use a mixture of methods to pay for weddings, including using savings, loans, contributions from parents and credit cards. MoneySmart offered a number of tips to reduce the cost of a wedding: ■ Talk about money early with your partner and both sets of parents (if they are involved)

■ Prioritise your dreams and start saving early ■ Make a wedding budget based on what you can afford and stick to it ■ Shop around, get lots of quotes and haggle ■ Don’t tell suppliers it is for a wedding ■ Have an out-of season-wedding (in winter or on a Friday, for example) ■ Cut your guest list (ask yourself, is this person an active part your life?) ■ Save on decorating costs by doing them yourself or enlisting a friend ■ Have a backyard wedding or use a friend’s place ■ Spread out your wedding bills across a few months so you don’t get all the bills at once.

DECIDING ON YOUR WEDDING GUEST LIST It’s important to set basic rules before you send out the invitations DECIDING on a guest list for a wedding can be a daunting experience. Do you invite that second cousin you last saw when you were 10 years old? What about your best friend’s sister’s boyfriend? Whether you are inviting 30 people to your big day or 300, deciding on who to invite can be hard. Before you begin sending out invitations, sit down with your partner and discuss some basic rules around the guest list. Certain rules could include people you have not seen or had constant contact with in more than three years or no family friends you have not seen or spoken to in more than five years. Here are some tips on coming up with your guest list: ■ Set a rough limit: How many people would you like to have at your wedding? Would you like it to be a small, intimate ceremony with about 20 people or a much

Page 6.

larger event with 200 guests? Starting with a rough number, which can change, is good for both budgeting purposes and deciding who to invite. Setting a limit can also help with pressure from parents and family members wanting to invite other guests. ■ Write down a list of everyone you must have: Think of who you can’t live without at your wedding. Write down as many names as you can as a guide to use in deciding the final list. ■ Decide whether guests can bring a guest: Generally if other people are married or in a long-term relationship it is polite to allow those people to bring a plus one. Otherwise, if someone wants to bring someone with them, let them contact you about it. ■ What about children? Just like people bringing a guest, should you allow children at your wedding? And if it is a child-friendly event, how do you decide which ones?

A good way to approach this is to consider how often you see the child. Have you been a part of their life for quite a while? Consider also those children whose parents can’t come unless they do. ■ What about co-workers? There are a number of small businesses in the South Burnett, with a number of offices having teams of less than 10 people. Your team has probably been subjected to conversations about your wedding for some time. In this case, it’s probably best to invite your entire team, otherwise things could get awkward once you’re back at work. If you work in a bigger organisation invite whoever you want. ■ Ex-friends: Sometimes people fall out. Just because a friend invited you to their wedding a few years ago, if you aren’t friends with them any more don’t feel obliged to invite them to yours. Alternatively, if you feel the friendship could be saved, inviting them could help.

WHERE TO SIT YOUR GUESTS Key tips to make sure everyone has the best time on your special day

TIPS:

■ Sit younger people closer to the dance floor.

■ Sit people who have a history of fighting on opposite sides of the room. ■ Don’t sit the flower girls or ring bearers at the main table unless their parents are sitting with them, otherwise you’ll be looking after them all night while you’re supposed to be enjoying your big day. ■ Get creative with how you display the seating plan. Use photo frames with pictures of your guests; use an old window still in its frame and write the list in chalk; use a blackboard, or even bunting. The little flares of creativity add strongly to the atmosphere

of the event. ■ Sit groups of friends together. If you and your partner met at school or university, sit your friends from that era together. ■ Think about whether you want to assign just tables, or seats as well. ■ If your parents are inviting their own guests, let them have a say on where their friends or family will be seated. If parents are divorced and do not get on, seat them apart from one another with their branch of the family with them.

ONE of the biggest things brides and grooms stress about on the big day is whether guests are having fun. A key part of guests’ enjoyment is who they are seated with at the reception. To make sure guests have the greatest time possible try to seat like-minded people together and put some space between people who don’t always get along.

CHOOSING A GIFT REGISTRY, WISHING WELL OR DONATION? Help guests choose the perfect gift by specifying what you need

GUESTS want to pass on their best wishes to the bride and groom and usually do that in the form of a gift but how do you make sure that gift is something you need or don’t already have? That is where gift registries come in. Gift registries allow couples to lay out what they want and need. There are many registry services available through department stores, services like Amazon Wish List and more.

TOP TRENDS IN GIFT REGISTRIES IN 2017

■ Outdoor equipment: Australians love spending time outside. Portable grilling

Page 8.

equipment and barbecues are some of the most popular wedding gifts at the moment. ■ Retro appliances: Everyone likes having appliances that are pleasing to look at. Retro appliances can make a great wedding gift. ■ Food and wine: From wine subscriptions to ways to serve cheese, anything food and wine-related is easy and always a win. ■ Experiences: This could include activities or sports the couple wouldn’t usually take part in. Experiences could include things like a couple’s spa day, race car driving, hot air balloon ride or a cooking class.

■ Wishing well: Often people might prefer a gift of money to help with the cost of a honeymoon or house deposit. Have a special wishing well set up in the reception area where people can place in cards and cash. Including a short poem about why you are having a wishing well can be a good way to get people to donate. You can find heaps by Googling “wedding wishing well poems”. ■ Charitable donations: Sometimes people have everything they need and want to try and make a difference in the world. Create a list of charities you support and ask your guests to donate to them instead of giving you a gift.

HOW LOVE BLOSSOMED ON A MOUNTAIN TOP Kingaroy pair marries as sun sets - after meeting on a blind date JOSEPHINE and Clint Mumford originally met on a blind date. “A friend set us up,” Josephine said. “I had never been on a blind date before, I was very sceptical. “It ended up working out in the end, though I definitely had no idea at the time that it would and I was very nervous.” Josephine said on that first date Clint took her to the top of Mt Wooroolin to watch the sunset. “That is where we first met,” she said. “It was very romantic.” The romantic-natured relationship continued for the next year and a quarter. “We were on the coast and went hot air ballooning, when he proposed to me,” Josephine said. Josephine then spent the next nine months organising the wedding. “It was just so much to do, there was so much involved,” she said. “Working full time and trying to fit it all in, it was crazy.” She said overall there weren’t many challenges in organising the big day. “We were pretty lucky that it all ended up being alright in the end,” she said. “Despite all the organisation in the world, things will still go wrong the week before or the day before. “It’s all just a bit mad.” She said her advice to future brides would be for them to remain calm on the big day. “The day before drags on and on, but the day of the wedding goes so quick, so just try and enjoy it,” she said. “It happens so fast, you’re there and you’re married.”

While Josephine and Clint both live in Kingaroy, they married on Josephine’s grandmother’s farm near Rockhampton on September 17, 2016. “It made it a bit personal,” she said. “It was the perfect day, the weather was perfect, it was all good.” While Josephine organised the big day, Clint organised the honeymoon. “We went to Las Vegas,” Josephine said. “He surprised me on our wedding day letting me know about Vegas.”

The day of the wedding goes so quick, so just try and enjoy it.

PICK YOUR VENUE The considerations you need to make THE magic of a wedding can be made or broken by your choice of venue. Deciding on the venue for your wedding is arguably one of the more important decisions you will make for your big day. It will also be one of the first decisions you make. The choice of venue determines the date of your wedding, the option for themes, catering, travel and accommodation. It’s not a light decision couples have to make and there are a number of things to take into consideration.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

■ What is your dream wedding venue? Write a list of your venue priorities to help you decide. ■ Is the venue you want within your budget? ■ Think about what is included with the venue. ■ Do you want to get married in a church? If you do you’ll need to think of a reception venue close by. ■ If you’re not getting married in a church, do you want to combine the ceremony and reception locations? ■ If you are needing accommodation, or supplying accommodation to your guests, do you want that to also be a part of your ceremony and reception location?

TOP TIP

Weather can change at any time. What facilities does your venue have in place in case the weather on your big day turns a bit grey? If there is nothing, have a back-up plan for where you could go and have a way of easily communicating that with guests.

HOW TO INVITE YOUR GUESTS Announce your wedding along with its style ONCE you have decided on your guest list and have the venue locked in, it’s time to send out the invitations. This is your first opportunity to confirm your wedding location, theme and other information with family and friends. The invitation should start with an invite line where you tease people into the rest of the invitation, with phrases such as “the honour of your presence”, “the pleasure of your company”, “you are invited to share their joy as”. Following this should be the names of the couple getting married. You can list full names, first names only, preferred names, whatever you like. The action line comes next. What do you want your guests to do? Do you “request the pleasure of their company at the celebration of marriage” or do you want them to “join us as we exchange vows of love and commitment”? The information line comes next. This should be kept to the basic time, date and location. Following this is the party line, where you explain what will happen after the ceremony. It can be something as simple as “dinner and dancing to follow”. If the reception is at a different location, include the location and the time it starts. As for the invitation design, you want it to reflect the theme of your wedding. There are many online tools, such as Canva, that can help you design the invitations or your wedding planner can help you with that.

CHOOSING THE WEDDING PARTY There are several considerations to make when picking your posse

THE wedding party, both bridesmaids and groomsmen, is your number-one support network in the lead-up to the wedding.

TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE WEDDING PARTY

■ Think about the responsibilities. The maid of honour and best man are usually the bride and groom’s right-hand woman and man throughout the entire wedding process. Are the people you choose responsible and trustworthy? ■ What about family? It is common to see brothers and sisters included in the

wedding party, usually at the choice of the bride and groom. Sometimes parents or in-laws could have certain expectations about who should be included in the wedding party. It could be a good idea to think about the potential impact of not including a certain person you might feel pressured to include – could it cause rifts? ■ Don’t worry about gender. Women can stand with men and men can stand with women. Good friendship is not determined by gender. And what do you call them? How about the man of honour and the best woman?

■ Are there children in your family or social circle you’d like to be part of the wedding? You can include the by having flower girls throw petals along the aisle and page boys carrying the rings. Remember, these roles aren’t essential and you can leave them out if you can’t think of anyone suitable. ■ Don’t be offended if someone says no. They might not have the time or money they want to devote to your big day. Don’t not invite them to the wedding just because they said no to being in your bridal party.

FIVE STEPS TO A STRESS FREE BRIDAL PARTY Help your friends have an amazing day SO YOU’VE been asked to be a part of the wedding party, you’ve accepted and now the real work begins. From organising hen’s and buck’s parties to looking after the favours, there is a lot bridesmaids and groomsmen need to do. Here are some tips to stay calm in this role helping your friend prepare for their big day: ■ Start to plan things immediately: Think about your own personal budget. What are you able to afford? When having discussions with other bridesmaids/groomsmen and the bride/groom make sure they know these limits. ■ Be a team player: There is a team of other bridesmaids and groomsmen working to make this the most perfect wedding day and celebration for your friend or family member. Always check in with the bride/groom and best man/

maid of honour to see if there is anything you can do to help. ■ Remember this is someone else’s big day: While you might have a lot of awesome ideas, the final decision always goes to the bride and groom – it is their big day. ■ Don’t take things personally: Weddings can bring out the best and worst of brides, grooms and the bridal party. Make sure you don’t take things that are said personally. A wedding usually signifies a massive life change and a lot of stress is involved in that. Because of that, people can say things they don’t mean. ■ Prepare for the worst: Anything can happen on the big day, from terrible weather to dresses ripping. Have an emergency kit ready with bobby pins, deodorant, tape, mints and other essentials.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY Stay focused: Capturing the moments that will last forever

FOR memories that last a lifetime, you will need a photographer to snap your special day. And when choosing a wedding photographer there are several key considerations you have to make. Firstly, decide on the style of photograph you want. Different photographers specialise in different things. You have documentary photographers who capture the moments as they see it, you really have posed shots of people looking at the camera, the photos tell the story. You have portrait photographers, think classic wedding photos with posed photoshoots (though that’s not to say they can’t be creative as well). You also have more fine art and edgy photographers, for who the wedding is blank canvas to create artistic photos, think double

Page 16.

exposures, angles and more. It is also good to decide what kind of look you want your photographs to have. Do you want them to be bright, colourful and bounce off the page? Or do you want a more subdued film look, which is one of the main trends in 2017? Thinking about these things can mean you can approach photographers who fit your style. Once you have decided what sort of photograph you want, it’s a good idea to approach several photographers and have a chat with them about their costs, what they provide for that cost etc. It could also be a good idea to do a practice shoot, such as engagement photos, with them, to make sure they are the right choice. When chatting with them, it’s good to

show them some example shots of what they want. Wedding photographers are very experienced, they know what they are doing and generally what to capture. Still, it is good to come up with a shot list for them. Write on the shot list the types of shots you could not live without after your wedding (the first kiss, a shot of you with your grandparents etc). It is also a good idea to have someone who knows everyone on the shot list to be a point person for the photographer if they need help identifying guests. If you would like to have your wedding videoed, it is best to go through a similar process to choose a videographer, or ask your photographer if they also provide a video service.

MARRIAGE LAW IN THE STATE OF QUEENSLAND You’ve got to choose: Civil ceremony or a religious ceremony? QUEENSLAND residents can choose to have two types of wedding ceremonies, either a civil ceremony or a religious ceremony. A civil ceremony can be held at a location of your choice with a registered civil marriage celebrant. A religious ceremony can be held at a church with a registered religious marriage celebrant or an independent church with a registered civil religious marriage celebrant. Couples need to complete and lodge a notice of intended marriage application form with their marriage celebrant at least one month before the big day. After the ceremony your celebrant is responsible for registering your marriage on your behalf. While same-sex couples can’t currently enter into marriage in Australia, they can enter into civil partnerships in Queensland and registration rules are similar to civil marriages. For more information on the legalities of marriage in Queensland visit http://bit.ly/2pEes2x.

FOOD AND DRINK Finding ways to trim the wedding catering budget FOOD and alcohol, along with the venue, are the most expensive parts of a wedding. On average, Australians spend $18,000 on the three. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep costs low, especially if venues do not allow you to self-cater or bring your own drinks. Here are some tips and things to think about if you want to keep food and drinks cost low.

CATERING ON A BUDGET

If you’re after a formal sit down meal, it doesn’t have to cost a small fortune. There are plenty of professional and affordable caterers available to put together your ideal wedding meal. Do your research to find the best deal and make sure your venue is happy to work with an outside caterer.

DIY FOOD

If your venue allows, why not self-cater

Page 18.

some of the food, if not all of the food, at your wedding? Appetisers can be very expensive to organise, so why not hold a cooking session the day before the wedding with some family and friends where you make some nibbles? Making your own will allow you to make some fancy things at a cheap cost. If you don’t have time to make some, buy things from supermarkets, either fresh or frozen. Also, to save even more money do not have servers. Just ask a family member or friend to place the appetisers on tables for people to enjoy.

DO YOU NEED ALCOHOL?

Do you and your partner not drink much? If you don’t drink usually then why have alcohol at your wedding? It would just be an extra cost that is not about you on a day that is all about you. If you do want

to have a drinks package, consider having an open bar for only two hours instead of four. Or if you venue allows it, bring your own alcohol as alcohol from a bottle shop will be drastically cheaper than from the venue, especially if you buy in bulk.

FOOD TRUCKS

A new trend taking over weddings, food trucks offer a much cheaper catering option for couples. From taco trucks, to wood-fire pizzas and other street food, basically any form of food comes in a food truck these days. Use the internet to search for local food trucks, or ones in close by areas like Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. If you decide to use a food truck, which can bring a unique aspect to your wedding, make sure there is enough room at your venue for guests to easily access the food.

YOUR WEDDING CAKE Slice of tradition served your way WHO doesn’t love to tuck into a nice slice of wedding cake after a wedding dinner? While you can never go wrong with a traditional white vanilla tiered wedding cake, other classic flavours such as chocolate have made a comeback in recent years, as has butter cream icing. Trends have shown people like to decorate cakes with cute, cartoon-like toppers (the figurines that sit atop of the cake made to look like the bride and groom). For those who want a more elegant look with their cake, metallic wedding cakes are the latest trend. Made with a basic wedding cake base, the cake is decorated in edible glitter. For a more rustic, vintage look, a naked cake could be the way to go. A naked cake is a cake that has been

reconstructed so everybody can see what’s inside. For those wanting to do a wedding cake on a tighter budget, there are a number of options available. A cupcake tower could be a great way to provide guests with a sweet treat but at half the cost. Red velvet cupcakes or even basic chocolate or vanilla cupcakes always go down well. You could even provide each guest with an extra cupcake to take home as a wedding favour. For those who don’t like cake, a sweets bar could be a good option. Set up a table with as many different kinds of lollies, chocolate and ice cream that you love and you have the perfect sweet buffet for guests to enjoy. The dessert bar can be themed to your preference.

SAY YES TO THE DRESS Things to consider when choosing the best dress of your life YOU’LL see your wedding dress for the rest of your life. You might not keep it but it will be in your photos, videos and memories. It is the main symbol of your big day and you want to make sure you decide on the dress early so you have enough time to make any adjustments and fix any issues. When trying on your wedding dress it’s important to consider your body type. Pick a dress that fits you well but that you feel comfortable in. You’ll be wearing the dress for up to 12 hours, you want to be comfortable on one of the biggest days of your life. Also keep in mind your budget – you don’t want to spend all your money on the dress and not be able to afford to feed your guests. If you are having a traditional wedding, go for a classic white dress. Otherwise let the dress reflect your personality. Light pink and light blue dresses are currently on trend for people who decide to ditch the white dress (which generally symbolises purity). Deep neck plunge dresses, bustier tops and laid-back bohemian lace dresses are also in fashion. When shopping for a dress, like with make-up, always consider your skin tones and hair colour. A stark white colour is quite bright and best for darker skin tones, while diamond white is slightly darker and suits more lighter skin tones.

ACCESSORIES

■ Floral headpieces are very much in fashion at the moment and that’s because they look great. ■ Shorter veils and trains are also in fashion, making a comeback in recent years. ■ Pearls and crystals remain the top jewellery choice for brides, as earrings, necklaces or both.

SUITING UP Making the right choice is vital for groom, groomsmen

ONE RING TO RULE THEM ALL Do you want some razzle dazzle or a simple delight? EVERYBODY knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and that is why they are perfect for wedding rings. There are many different cuts of diamond and it’s good to know which you like. You have circular cuts, such as round, cushion, asscher, marquise and oval. You have more square and rectangle shapes like princess, radiant and emerald. There are also unique shapes like pear (think a tear drop) and heart. You can get similar cuts for other types of gemstones. It’s good to know what you want before you go in and purchase your ring. Many people like to wear their wedding ring and engagement ring side by side. If you have an engagement ring with embellishments, you might want to go with a simple, matching band as your wedding ring. If you are just wearing your wedding ring by itself you might want to go for an intricate style. Work out what you want with your partner and then discuss your choice with your jeweller and see if they can create you custom rings. Others decide to go without a wedding ring, preferring just to use their engagement rings on the big day, or without rings altogether.

COOL, calm and collected. That is what a groom has to be on his wedding day and good attire is key to that composure. While not as important as the wedding dress, the groom’s suit is still another important choice that has to be made. More practical than a wedding dress, a suit can be worn more than once, so it’s important to get the choice right. A morning suit is by far one of the most formal and traditional suits a groom and groomsmen could wear. They are generally worn with a top hat, striped trousers and waistcoat. Tailcoat suits are also quite traditional. For a timeless and classic look, consider a black tie suit. Paired with a bow-tie and a white collared shirt the groom will instantly have an elegant and classy look about him, plus a suit that will be perfect for going to the theatre or evening soiree’s in. Black, navy blue, charcoal grey, brown and pinstripe suit colours are perfect for suits that can be utilised again in the future.

DECORATIONS AND FLOWERS Planning is the key to your dream wedding day

PHOTO: TREASURE PICS

WHEN deciding on a theme for your wedding, the first thing to do is create a clear vision of what you want for your day. Whether you envision an outdoor reception under the stars, or a formal banquet fit for royalty, it’s good to think about what you want early. While it can be fun to create wedding decorations yourself, there are places you can hire decorations from. Event hire companies and some venues offer items such as place-card holders, props, lighting, cutlery, funky seating, photo booths and more. Going with this option could mean less stress for you. If you are going down the DIY path there are many websites and social media pages where you can sell off your creations once your big day has finished. If you are placing flowers around the

Page 22.

venue, it can be a good idea to match the decorative flowers with the bride’s bouquet.

CHOOSING A WEDDING THEME

When you are deciding on what themes and decorations to have at your wedding there are a number of things you should take into consideration. ■ What have you always pictured your wedding to look like? Many brides have an idea of what they want their wedding to look like, so base any decorations off that. Also imagine yourself 20 years into the future. What do you want your wedding to look like looking back on it? ■ What will work at your venue? Think about your venue. Is your venue inside or outside? Do the decorations you have in mind match the venue? Could they blow

away in the wind? ■ Use social media to find decorations and themes you like. Chances are you’ll find some similar themes that you go back to every time. Go with that theme.

CHOOSING THE BOUQUET

You’ll never have a clothing accessory like your bridal bouquet again in your life (unless you remarry). When selecting your bouquet and flowers ask yourself: ■ Will it go with your dress? ■ Will it be heavy? ■ How will you carry your bouquet? ■ Will it be easy to handle and pass to your bridesmaids? ■ Will it hide detail on your dress? Don’t forget to speak with your florist about what is in season when and what works best for you.

WHAT MAKE-UP SHOULD YOU WEAR? On trend: Going natural with a no make-up look WEDDING make-up should be chosen around what suits your face. Everybody has different face shapes, skin tone and lip shapes. Keeping things natural is a great way to showcase you, the make-up style you choose should come down to personal preference and what you think is best for you. Airbrush make-up and fake eyelashes help to emphasise your face and eyebrows.

HOW TO WEAR THE HAIR Test and try: Aim for a look that will last for 10 hours WEDDING hair will generally have to last for about 10 hours, so it’s important to chose a hairstyle that works for your hair. Make sure you test your hair design beforehand so you know it will last. Recent trends in hair design show brides have been going for a more natural look. While curls and frizz should be somewhat tamed, natural waves running free, paired with something like a flower crown are quite popular. The simple updo is also in fashion, creating an effortless look that is well put together. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of fun though. Wrapping hair around the bun, brading parts of the bun or leaving a few strands free can create a unique and creative look.

TOP TIPS

■ Make sure your hair is shampooed the day before so your hair is easier to work with. ■ Bring along any head pieces of veils during the hair trail to make sure they can be incorporated into the design. ■ If you are colouring your hair, make sure you are happy with it for your wedding day. You don’t want regrowth to ruin photos. ■ Time how long the trial takes so you know how long it will take on the big day. ■ Have your hair done first and then your make-up.

Page 24.

RECENT MAKE-UP TRENDS:

■ A natural, no make-up look has been one of the biggest trends in recent years. A natural look lets you be you. Make sure your skin is clean and exfoliated and use a light foundation to hide any spots. A matte-brown eye shadow and eye liner can help emphasise your eyes while keeping with the natural look, as can a lightly coloured nude lip stick. ■ Berry lips have made a comeback in recent years. From plum colours to burgundy, there are many different shades to chose from. Before picking a colour though, it’s best to test your undertones. If gold jewellery is what looks best on you, you have yellow undertones, if silver looks better you have pink undertones. People with yellow undertones should wear more burgundy, deep red and maroon shades, while people with pink undertones should wear more deep plum and oxblood berry shades. ■ A light pink eye-shadow has also picked up in popularity over the past few years. A very light pink eyeshadow allows you to look romantic without looking too fake. Keep the rest of your make-up simple, so your eyes are emphasised. It’s also a good idea to match the eye-shadow with a pastel pink lipstick.

HIGH school sweethearts Shen and Mitch Potter took their wedding slowly. “We got engaged in July 2015... and organised the wedding slowly, not doing it all at once,” Shen said. “For the main part it made it less stressful. “There were some things you had to leave until the last minute, but doing it little bit by little bit made it easier.” Shen said the couple were together about 10 years before they got engaged. “We went to Flaxton Gardens near Maleny, we had lunch there and went to the lookouts,” Shen said. “That is where he proposed.” The couple married about a year and a half later on March 25, 2017. “It was a lovely day,” Shen said. “We got married at Mulanah Gardens and the day went really quickly. “I really enjoyed taking the photos and getting married obviously. The reception was fun as well.” She said the biggest challenge in organising the big day was trying to please everyone. “Everyone has different opinions of what it should be like, so trying to make everyone happy was hard,” she said. “You just had to be up-front with everyone and ask them what they wanted. “Just remember it’s about yourself, at the end of the day it’s you and your partner getting married. Just remember that. “It’s not about anyone else apart from you guys.” Shen said she brought a hint of her personality to her dress accessories. “I wore pink converse shoes,” she said. “I just wanted pink shoes, they really stood out to me. “That’s just who I am.” While the couple travelled to the Sunshine Coast for a week following the wedding, they are looking to travel to the snow later this year.

LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU Weddings can be all fun and games too BETWEEN the ceremony and the reception, the first course and the second course, after dessert. No matter what time of the wedding you want to make sure guests are entertained. Music is one of the best forms of entertainment. From live bands, wedding singers, DJs, jukeboxes or play lists, there are many music options available at weddings. Music is generally used to create a mood. Music such as Wagner’s Bridal Chorus and Mendelssohn’s Wedding March remain favourites, as does Pachelbels’ Canon in D. Couples generally pick a happy, upbeat song for the recessional, when they leave the ceremony venue. Here are some other entertainment ideas:

other, to guess who of wedding guests and other board games, there are many different activities guests can take part in at their table. One idea could be to have a table booklet which the table works together to fill out with questions in it such as ‘What should we name our first child?’, ‘What should we do on date night?’, etc.

TABLE GAMES

GAMES such as Sing Star or Guitar Hero could also be a good way for guests to interact and break the ice.

IF YOU are having an outdoor ceremony or reception outdoor games could be the way to go. You could play ring toss, jenga, or oversized board games. Traditional childhood games such as tag or hide and seek could also work a treat with the adults.

GROUP GAMES
