I – Invitations. These are the first contact with guests, so they set the tone for the whole event. In my experience this is a lengthy process, and you can’t start too soon. Obviously it relies on a guest list being decided, and then it can take a while to collate all the correct names and addresses. It is very personal and often a tricky thing to guess at as you may not know the couple very well yet, so lots of options and then narrow it down to a few favourites. Remembering to allow for printing time and proof reading.
J – Junior guests. Children is always a discussion point for weddings – should they be invited or not? This is completely personal preference and i try very hard to stay out of this discussion with couples. Sometimes there is an obvious reason like numbers but my advice is still to remain impartial. I have also seen too many weddings where too much emphasis was placed on keeping children happy and they did not utilise the room/games etc.
How do you get a wedding planning work experience opportunity? Work experience is a tricky one and often it’s about putting a lot of feelers
