Planning a memorable wedding is no easy task. There are so many decisions that need to be made, and it can feel overwhelming at times. However, if you follow these tips for planning a memorable wedding, you will have a beautiful event that will leave guests dazzled!



It’s important to have a good idea of how much money you’ll need for your wedding day. It’s also crucial that you don’t forget any other costs such as the pre- and post-wedding festivities! Remember that there are many steps before and after the big day – so be sure to account for all aspects in your budget.

Season and Date

Consider the season and date. If you’re planning your wedding in the hotter months,  keep guests cool with a wide selection of drinks and by making sure air-conditioning is provided if indoors or shade if outdoors.  Summers in Spain for example, can be extremely hot! 

Wedding Planner

I highly recommend using a planner even though you are having a small intimate wedding.  Here are the reasons why!   

There’s a lot of planning involved and it’s hard to keep track of all the different details.  Even if you have people helping out, there are always those last minute decisions that need making!

They speak the language for example if you are holding your wedding in Spain. I know its hard to remember the little things when you are so excited about your wedding, but don’t forget that some cultures have different customs. So if you are holding your wedding abroad a Planning will be able to guide you.



Planning a wedding can be quite stressful, but it’s worth the effort when you have such an amazing day to look forward too. One of the most important details is finding where you and your guests will stay. You will also need to consider what they’ll do on their days off! There are lots of options for venues, hotel or beach, hacienda or garden ? It really depends on how many people you’re expecting. The venue search according to style and number of guests should not be that difficult if if you have a good planner assisting you.


You will need a celebrant, without a celebrant and your ceremony, it’s just a big party!  Many people consider asking a friend to write their  ceremony but it’s always a good idea to get someone who is qualified, with experience in writing ceremonies and you can find the reasons why here!



As you are arranging a most memorable wedding, you may want a photographer to capture the day on video or photos.  Speak to your planner who will be able to recommend fabulous photographers.
