How to plan the best wedding

Top 10 wedding planning tips for the best wedding

Do you want the best wedding of the year? Here are some essential tips to guide you.

1. Location

Do you know if you are envisioning a traditional church, a beach front or barn for your wedding ? Is your dream a huge affair or an intimate guest list of close family and friends? Sit down with your partner and discuss this before moving on to the next part of planning your day.

2. Budget

Now we would all like to skip this one and pretend money is no object but even if you are lucky enough not to worry about the financial side of your big day it’s good to be aware of the costs and do a break down of roughly how much you wish to spend on each aspect.

3. The venue

The venue you pick will determine the amount of guests you can invite, the location of your wedding and, of course the theme and styling too. You need to allocate a good proportion of your wedding planning time and budget to finding your dream venue because there are so many different options to consider.

4. Entertainmentwedding band, party band, best wedding

Some people leave this till last which really isn’t a good idea as the best bands and DJ’s get booked up as much as 18 months in advance. The entertainment often makes or breaks the wedding party so get your favourite band or DJ booked early. We would say research the bands, listen to demos, watch videos and choose a band whose singer really engages with the guests; someone who knows how to bring the party alive! Remember that most good bands also have their own lighting equipment and DJ so this makes it easier for you when booking.

5. The dress

Most woman have been dreaming about their wedding dress since a young age and you might already have an idea of what you want but be opened minded and try different styles. Don’t rush the process, enjoy it! It’s not everyday you get to be a princess.

6. The Guest List

This can also be a tricky one and some couples find it hard to always agree on who should come to the whole day and just the evening. And that’s before other relatives start trying to get their preferences seen to. Just remember it’s your big day and it’s who YOU want to be there.

7. The photographer

This is an important one as these are your memories to treasure in years to come. Everyone wants different things from their chosen photographer but for most it would be someone who can take emotional but beautiful shots that show the love between you. Weddings can be stressful, especially for the bride who wants everything to go to plan, so its even more important to get someone who will help relax and calm the bride and portray the importance and loving aspect of the day.

8. The first dance

Research your favourite songs and identify ones that are meaningful for you both as a couple. Some people like to learn a dance routine or have a compilation of songs, this is entirely up to you.

9. The cake

Begin researching your wedding cake designs between 3-6 months before your wedding. Remember that cake bakers get booked up early too. Price will be based on the size of the cake, the amount of labour needed to create it and the cost of its ingredients. More experienced or reputable pros are usually pricier and it’s good to get tastings and ask for recommendations from friends.

10. Relax!

Try not to worry!! Your wedding is one of the biggest events in your life and you wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t feel stressed or anxious about the big day. But remember it’s is going to be amazing, so try to enjoy everything because you’ll regret if you don’t.

We hope these wedding planning tips have been useful and you feel closer to creating the best wedding you can envisage.

New Years Eve Party Games

The BEST New Years Eve Party Games

Are you looking for some New Years Eve Party games? Well look no further! We love New Year’s Eve and have played at many New Year’s Eve parties. But it isn’t the same without some fun New Years Eve Party games to bring every one together, and we’ve gathered the best games all in one place for you right here!

The best thing about these games is that they are free and easy, you don’t need to rush around buying supplies and they only require items you already have. What’s not to like?!

Here are our Top 5 New Years Eve party games, to get you laughing into the New Year!

The name Game:

The Name Game is a super easy New Year’s Eve party game that’s great for a large group of adults looking for a fun but laid back game to play.

For this game, each guest will need to contribute some names to a large bowl. These can be names of celebrities, fictional characters, historical characters, and even people in the room.

Party guests divide into teams and take turns trying to guess the names on the slip of paper by giving each other clues. Keep track of points if you wish, or simply enjoy the fun of the game.

Two Resolutions and a Lie :

Two Resolutions and a Lie is the ultimate ice breaker and the perfect beginning to your New Year’s Eve party.

This game is a twist on the classic Two Truths and a Lie party game where guests have to try to figure out what the other guests are lying and telling the truth about. With this game they’ll have to figure out which two resolutions you really want this year, and which one is completely made up.

New Years Resolution Guessing Game:

Here’s a New Year’s Eve game for adults that will give everyone an opportunity to share their New Year’s resolutions. The trick is that you’ll need to playing a guessing game to find out who’s is who.

Use some slips of paper to ask the guests to list their New Year’s resolution, what they’ll do less of, and what they want to do more of.

Collect the resolutions in a big jar or basket and then have the guests try to guess which resolution belongs to which guest.

Cotton Ball Race:

This hilarious relay race uses cotton balls and two bowls. Divide your group into teams of from six to ten people. Mark a starting line on the rug with masking tape and place a bowl of cotton balls and a jar of Vaseline on a table.

Across the room, have another table with an empty bowl for each team. Each team lines up and on “Go!” the first team members dab Vaseline on their noses, dip their noses into the bowl of cotton balls, race to their team’s bowl, and deposit the cotton ball. Team members take turns, and the first team whose members all complete the race wins.

Banana Bump:

You will need a banana and an orange for each guest. Place a hula hoop in the center of the room and have the players form a circle around it at equal distances. The goal is to push the oranges into the hula hoop with the bananas. The task becomes more difficult and fun because the bananas are tied to the players waist, about a foot from the ground. Players cannot use their hands. The first to succeed at getting their orange into the hula hoop circle is the winner.

And don’t forget!

The most important part of any party is……..music. Because once those drinks are flowing we all need our favourite tunes to get the party started!

If you want an energetic, exciting, professional band to make sure everyone at your event has a great time, The Right Hook are the right choice!
