One simply cannot quarantine love!
The pandemic might have temporarily halted your wedding plans, but we are here to fight the cause together and still achieve the wedding of your dreams!
If you are planning to get married soon, this is your sign to fire up those wedding ideas, cheer up, get excited, and start talking to wedding vendors and Perth wedding venue owners to make your big day the most memorable ever. It’s time to celebrate love!
Planning your perfect wedding is our common goal, and we’re all in this together.
Though there are no longer any restrictions on the size of the event, venues must maintain a COVID Safety Plan and a contact list. A COVID Event checklist or plan is required for weddings attended by more than 500 people.
At times, planning a wedding can be a bit overwhelming. Keeping everything organized is the key during the wedding planning process, whether it’s the decisions, deadlines, long to-do lists or the minute details.
During the process of making, it perfect, don’t forget to enjoy this time as well. After all, it is your wedding!
For all your “I wish I knew this before”, we have got some
Special wedding tips by our wedding coordinator from Frasers Events & Catering:
- Get yourself a wedding-worthy facemask just in case – Better safe than sneezing!
Getting married during a critical time can mean getting face masks to help ensure safety during the celebration. Never a dull moment at your wedding and if you’re going to wear a mask, it might as well say ‘I do’ because it’s your day and you ‘do’ you!
- To the ladies, be sure to bring an extra pair of shoes for the reception, just in case your feet get sore, comfort is key!
When your heart’s dancing, you should not stop due to sore feet! Even though stilettos enhance your appearance, they hurt your feet like nothing you have ever experienced. The second pair of shoes will save you half the suffering.
- A minimum of 4 weeks before your wedding date, give your coordinator an idea of the number of guests (unless there are special arrangements).
There are so many reasons why last-minute changes can be disastrous. The final number of guests at your wedding will have a huge effect on the ambience, venue, timing, and most importantly your budget.
- If serious Social Distancing is a part of your agenda, it’s a good idea to choose a big venue
Airy wedding venues (Perth) give your guests space to enjoy and breathe easy at the same time. Fraser’s Kings Park is located in the tranquil surrounds of Kings Park and sits high above the city with views of Perth and the beautiful Swan River. With floor to ceiling windows, our State Reception Centre can accommodate 700 guests, along with our Function Centre and Private Dining Room for smaller events..
- Plan your week before your wedding out so it is super cruisy for you both
It is always a good choice to take one step at a time, find ways to deal with pre-wedding anxiety and adhere to deadlines. Because nobody comes out fine from a pile of work just a week before the wedding.
- Prepare your drop-off items for your special event at least two days before the wedding day, including custom menus, wedding favours, etc.
The final countdown is about to begin! Having completed all your wedding planning, it’s now time for the big day! With two days to go, ensure you have ticked off more than half of your checklist.
- Ensure your wedding coordinator is aware of all the dietary requirements of your guests.
If your attendees have special dietary needs, you need to be prepared to meet those needs. A growing number of guests have food allergies, are conscious of their health, or hold strong beliefs regarding how food should be prepared. Fraser’s Events & Catering love a personal touch, so we can assist with all facets of catering for an event at your home with tailored menus and setups curated by our expert team of chefs and event managers. We will even be there on the day, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
- Have a plan B for your guest’s seating
One for the locals and one for guests joining you from the east coast. It saves the stress of doing it last minute during the worst-case scenario. Seating charts for weddings lead to new introductions while facilitating comfort and ease for guests. It is preferable to direct your guests where to sit and if your caterer serves different items, it may be helpful.
- Book your transport in advance
It’s important to book your end of evening pickup in advance rather than waiting for on-demand services (such as Uber) to pick you up – otherwise, you might be stuck and be the last to leave your wedding! Because at the end of a perfect day, you would not want to fall into a trap. Let the wedding transportation save you from the hassle.
- Get a helper
Make sure a person is designated to collect your items at the end of the reception (i.e., wishing well contents, signage, flowers, remaining wedding cake). Having a reliable person handling the post-wedding responsibilities is a great idea!
We wish you the best as newlyweds!
For added ease, consider hiring an external ‘on-the-day coordinator’ to relieve the stress of the day. Ask your Fraser’s coordinator for recommendations if you are uncertain about what to do on your big day.
