The Five Golden Rules 1

The Five Golden Rules 1

Having the right people close to you can make an enormous differences to the

pleasure and success of your wedding organisation. Whether you are employing professionals or asking friends and family to volunteer and assist, you must still select the right people.

The quality of the help you enlist will depend largely upon your ability to search out and recognize the best people for the job, and then getting the best out of them.

Getting people to do what you want requires leadership. Share your vision with those around you so they get a clear idea of what you want. Never assume anyone in your wedding party knows what is expected of them. The more information your helpers have, the better job they will do.

Be excited and spread your enthusiasm to others. Most people would be naturally chuffed at being asked to help out, so make them feel their contribution is really important and appreciated.

Be consistent, clear and don’t give out mixed messages. Agree with your partner on  important matters before you speak to anyone else. If you appear unified, this will give others less opportunity to wrest control from you.

Keep in contact with your helpers, Let them know where you are up to, ask them where they are up to, and ask if they need any help with their task/s. Give deadlines, because this sets the impression that you are in control ad makes people feel responsible for their tasks. Deadline also reduce anxiety because you have a deadline date of completion and can act when it’s not met.

Make a point of publicity acknowledging your helpers at the reception. Otherwise you can take them out to lunch, give them a gift like a special photo or just send them a thank you card.

The Five Golden Rules 4

The Five Golden Rules 4

Your first priority in this event is the preservation of your relationship.

There’s no point walking down the aisle in the best-organized wedding of the year if you can’t stand the sight of the person at the other end of it.

If your partner says to you, “We can’t do that, my parents won’t like it” their priority in this insurance is the relationship with their parents, and not necessary to yours.

Reaching decisions that may have far-reaching circumstances is never simple.
If you are going to put your foot down, make sure it’s important enough to do so. The key is to pick your battles. It’s more about putting everything in perspective and prioritizing what is really most important.

The organization of your wedding is a test of how you will function as a team. The decision-making process is unique to the dynamics of each couple. Some people like to organize every aspect together, other like to delegate parts, while others prefer to split the tasks.

We have noticed that a lot of our clients likes to come to see me together on their first appointment.  So they both can see more of my work and feel the connections with myself as their wedding photographer.

Agree at the early stage how you will work , so you don’t get yourself in a position where
the person is accusing the other of not pulling their weight, or pulling too much weight.

Rule Three will be update soon. Stay tuned!

The Five Golden Rules 5

The Five Golden Rules 5

I have read a book a few months ago. The book was about “What makes people successful”.

One particular habit that is most useful to wedding planning is Habit Number Two: “ Begin with the end in mind.” This is based on the principle that all things are created twice – first in the mind, then in the physical.

Problems  can arise when couples don’t have a clear picture of the type of wedding they want. Without a clear plan, it’s easier to get talked into things you don’t really need or want.

No two weddings are ever going to be the same, so every wedding is an exception to the rules of wedding etiquette and planning. You have in front of you a clean canvas ready to be painted. You may hear people say “ It’s your day, do whatever you want.” This is true to some extent, but it’s also true the day happens to your partner’s, your partner’s parent’s and your guest’s day as all.

Consequently, it’s as silly to say “ Do whatever you want” as it is to say “ Try to please everyone” These are the extremes you should be avoiding.

Find the middle ground that resolves around a sense of balance between you, your family, your friends and your guests.

Sit down with your partner and create a vision of your wedding. It may change over time and this is fine, but at least you will have made a start.

Ask yourselves:

  • What do we want the guests to say about our wedding day?
  • What do we want our parents and immediate family to say about our wedding day?
  • What do we want the bridal party to say about our wedding day?
  • What do we want to say about our wedding day?

Keep these outcomes in mind as you begin to organize your wedding.

Please contact us anytime if you need to discuss your wedding planning in Sydney.
