THE ROLES OF A BRIDE

Let’s face it, a wedding is all about the bride! Apart from smiling throughout the day, what is your role on the big day?

Being a bride is among the most exciting experiences you’ll ever have. As well as marrying the partner you love, you get to look and feel fabulous. And, from flowers and wedding favours to colour schemes and cakes, you’ll influence every decision regarding how your wedding day looks, sounds, tastes and even smells!

Starting out


Before you rush to reserve venues and photographers, consider what you’d actually like the wedding to be like, and what sort of bride you might be. Perhaps you’re super-organised, are already dreaming of your wedding since you were a young child and thinking of a big, opulent wedding.


Or, perhaps your concept of a wonderful wedding day will be an informal dinner with 20 of your closest friends and family. Your wedding day is regarded as the personal day of your life and it’s important to do whatever enables you to and your partner happy.

Set the wedding rules


The first thing towards planning your wedding should be to decide who's going to be doing and paying for what and then to set a day along with a budget. Money conversations with family aren't easy, but it’s wise to sit down and chat openly so that you know where you stand just before you start planning. And, be aware that if your parents offer to pay for some of the wedding, they really should have a say in the day as well.


The organised bride


However you decide to celebrate your wedding day, organisation is key and, whether you’re planning a big day celebration for 200 or a barbecue for 30, your key role should be to know what you want and stay organised. Here’s how…

Get computer savvy! Set up spreadsheets detailing your financial budget, guest list and bookings so you know what you’re spending, who’s likely to be there, and what’s arranged.


Make certain everyone around you is organised! Bridesmaids, family and ushers are typically there to help, as is your partner! Give them all a few tasks to assist you in the run up to the day.


Plan in advance. Give yourself a task to complete every week - this way you’re always up to the mark and can avoid unexpected stress. No bride would like to have to make favours the evening before her wedding.

Only plan what you want, what you can afford and what you have time to do. Some of the most stylish weddings are planned in very little time and with a limited budget. Stress and debt are to be avoided!
