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 organise 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 organising such a large event in an unfamiliar location.

There have been instances where some of our clients have booked a venue only to realise 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. The venue sometimes turns out too big, or sometimes guests have to be crammed into a smaller space. But With MJ Travel & group event we got you covered with your guest.
