Plan ahead and hire a wedding planner

“Advance planning makes a big difference,” says MJ.

Both wedding planners suggest that a minimum of six months is ideal to plan and organize a larger wedding for several hundred guests – but smaller ones can be arranged more quickly.

MJ suggests a small event of up to a hundred people could be put together in around a month. But as with all things there’s generally a trade-off between speed, expense and quality, so the more advance notice you can give, the better.

agree it’s a good idea to hire a wedding planner. And while you might expect wedding planners to say that, for couples based outside the city a local wedding planner offers a significant shortcut through the complexities of organizing such a large event in an unfamiliar location.

There have been instances where some of our clients have booked a venue only to realize a few months later that their guest list has grown to exceed the venue’s capacity.”

there can be issues with both under- and over-sized locations: “Choosing a venue before the guest list is final can be a big problem.
