The initial planning stages are crucial, so we have handpicked a selection of suppliers that will start your wedding planning journey for the wedding of your dreams.
Are you stuck on where to start planning your luxury wedding?
Whether you are looking to create an intimate gathering or a lavish celebration, these are the luxury wedding suppliers that you need to begin with. We have shortlisted four wedding essentials that you need to start thinking about right away.
Luxury Wedding Venue
Firstly, it’s important to choose your luxury wedding venue. From magnificent castles to lavish ballrooms or majestic gardens, we believe that your wedding venue should be as unique as you are. This is a priority so that you know what is included and what wedding packages are available to you. After this, you can then start looking at the suppliers that aren’t included and you need to look elsewhere for.
When deciding on your luxury wedding venue it is important to first consider whether you want to tie the knot at home or abroad. Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular, so this is something to consider.
One of the key things to check with your dream wedding venue is the capacity. This all depends on whether you are planning an intimate celebration or a grand reception, but it is important to have thought about your guest list before falling in love with a venue that is too small. On the other hand, you may want exclusive use of the venue for your celebration or even the whole weekend. This is offered by some luxury wedding venues, but many do not have this option, therefore it is imperative to check.
Another important factor is whether the venue has any restrictions with regards to decorations, furnishings, event timings or food and drink. Some venues insist that you use their in-house caterers or finish your celebration before 12am, alterations can be arranged for an added premium.
It is important that you love everything about the wedding venue and that you can see your vision come to life there.
If you are planning your luxury wedding you may also want to consider getting a helping hand from a wedding planner. A wedding planner has years of experience and knows all of the appropriate luxury suppliers in the area.
As I’m sure you already know, wedding planning can be very stressful and time-consuming. So what better way to manage this than getting a luxury wedding planner onboard to assist you in making your dream wedding come to life.
Your wedding planner will make it a priority to get to know you and your partner, ensuring that their planning will reflect the individuals getting married.
One of the main benefits of having a wedding planner is that they ensure the days events are seamless, as well as everything beforehand being taken care of. You will have spent months, if not years, planning this celebration so you need to sit back and enjoy it. Your wedding planner will attend to guests and ensure that every detail is taken care of before you even need to worry.
We have a handpicked selection of luxury wedding planners waiting to hear from you, excited to get on board and start making your wedding dreams become a reality.
Another important luxury wedding supplier to get on board early is your photographer and videographer. You will want to remember your wedding day forever, so having pictures that you love and want to share is imperative.
Our top tip when choosing a photographer is to make sure you look extensively at their portfolio. Try and find previous couples that got married in a similar venue or time of year to see what your photos could look like. It is also important to discuss with your wedding photographer the types of shots you would like and make sure that you are comfortable and will feel relaxed behind the camera.
Videography is also on the rise as having beautifully edited video footage is a lovely thing to keep and share with individuals who couldn’t make it to your wedding day. Wedding videographers can capture every moment of your day, for example getting ready, which many of your loved ones are not there to experience. As a result, you can get a stunning piece of film to remember every detail from start to finish.
For us, we believe that wedding flowers take the celebration to a new level of luxury. Flowers will be a key feature throughout your whole celebration, from buttonholes and bouquets, to decorating both your ceremony venue and reception venue.
We have a selection of high-end florists with years of experience in creating unforgettable displays that frame your whole day. A good florist will understand your vision and the style that you are looking for, then design displays that exude luxury and romance.
If you don’t know much about flowers and traditions, this is where it is important to talk to a professional when you start wedding planning. Whether a certain flower is in season is a very important factor, especially if you want lots, as sourcing them can be a difficult task. As a result, it is important to get advice before you set your heart on a display that isn’t possible.
If you are looking to keep any of the details from your wedding day as a momento, it is important to discuss this with potential suppliers. You may want to include artificial flowers in the bride’s bouquet or the mother of the bride’s corsage. Additionally, it is also possible to preserve your bouquet. Specialist companies will collect your bouquet straight after the wedding, photograph it, dismantle it and dry out each bloom to preserve its colour and shape, before using the photos to put it carefully back together in a 3D frame.
Can you imagine a wedding without flowers? No, we can’t either.
These are the first steps to planning your luxury wedding. Once these details are taken care of you will feel as though the major essentials are taken care of and the other details will fall into place. Following this, it is time to start thinking about sending save the dates and finding that dream dress.
