Location, Location, Location

Choosing the location and venues for your wedding ceremony and reception is one of the biggest choices to make when it comes to planning your wedding. Whether you use the same venue for both parts of the wedding, or you opt for two separate locations, they will be the backdrop to the entire day. The venue is arguably the most important decision for the wedding day, as it will make an impact in a number of ways. The right venue will not only look great for the day but should also be adequate for holding the number of guests you will have, as well as suiting the style you’re going for on your wedding day. 

The Guest List And Invitations 

Deciding on your guest list should be done alongside choosing your venue in order to help you find somewhere that is the right size to hold everyone. When deciding on your guest list, make sure you invite people who you really want there, rather than feeling obliged to invite people you haven’t seen in years and aren’t special to you. Your wedding day is about you and your partner, not about making other people happy. Be sure to invite your nearest and dearest – friends, family, your besties from your amazing hen do and stag nights, and anyone else that you feel deserves to be invited to such an occasion. Once you’ve decided on your guest list, you can start creating invitations. You can make invitations yourself, however, it could be easier to have invitations created and printed professionally. If you want to be eco-friendly, you could also consider sending out paperless invitations via email.


It’s a good idea to order your flowers in plenty of time to ensure your chosen florist has plenty of notice for designing your perfect bouquet. It will also help to make sure that there is space for designs as many florists will be booked up with other weddings. If you’re looking for a florist in North Devon to help you design the flowers for your big day, then contact The Rose Shed. They will provide you with a tailored service to ensure you get the perfect design for all the flowers that will feature in your wedding, matching the theme you have in mind or helping inspire you with ideas. 

Wedding Favours

A small but meaningful part of the wedding day is providing favours for your guests at the reception. The beauty of favours is that they only have to be small and don’t have to cost much, while still carrying a lot of sentiment. It is a thank you to your guests for taking the time out of their lives to share a special day with you. A wedding favour can be absolutely anything you want it to be. Try searching online for inspiration if you don’t already have something in mind. A wedding favour can be as small or as large as you want, so whether you want to surprise your loved ones with a beautiful flower delivery Varsity Lakes locals rave about, or you’d prefer to write them a little note to say thank you – anything goes!
