Preparation For The Big Day

Having been through so many weddings, I would like to write an article not on photography but rather on how the couple should prepare for the big day. I will focus mainly on items to prepare for the day itself rather than to cover the whole wedding in total as it would be just too long a list...hehe

1) Book your wedding dinner venue way way in advance. Next year being the year of the rabbit is going to be a "hot" year for couples getting married. Make sure you have already booked the venue by now if you're planning to get married next year to avoid disappointment.

2) Book your bands, "sang keh em" (talkative lady throughout your wedding), photographers, videographer, wedding car etc etc. You get the picture.

3) Delegate responsibility! On the actual wedding day, you will not have the time to run here and there to coordinate your wedding. Get help from close friends or relatives to take on this task. You can assign specific task to individuals example : ushers to wedding dinner tables, in charge of projector/slideshow during the event, ang pow keeper, coordinator with the hotel/F&B manager, alcohol (beer) counters etc etc.

4) During the tea ceremony, make out a list in the order of who will be having the tea first. This will save lots of time!

5) Make sure that the slideshow player is compatible with the format of the video/slideshow that your photographer/videographer has done up! Bring along a notebook just in case as notebook plays almost everything. Delegate this!

These are just some of the items that will help to ensure your wedding day is less stressful with careful planning and hopefully you will have time to enjoy yourselves with your family and friends rather than to stress out on organization :) Cheers.
