Peter Wills Photography – Wedding Checklist Part Two. Four to Six months before the Wedding.

4 to 6 months before the wedding
Create preliminary guest list

Create the invitation cards and manage the approvals of your guests. The best way to create the guest list in electronic form, so that you can simply edit them in the coming weeks.

Choose witnesses

Witnesses are nowadays required only in the Catholic wedding ceremony – if you want to have witnesses (including the registry office / Protestant marriage), you should consult with the witnesses.

Discuss marriage with the priest (if required)

Discuss the process of the ceremony
Search for lyrics and songs
Make song booklet
Organise music

Organize music for the wedding ceremony

Book early a DJ, a musician or a wedding band for your wedding reception and tell about your music taste.

Organise Photographer

Determine the Wedding photographers in Glasgow and the Wedding filmmaker who will capture the ceremony and reception and discuss the approximate sequence of shots and your special requests.

Rent Wedding Cars

For the trip from home to the registrar’s office or from the registry office to the location you might want an extraordinary vehicle for your special day. Book now the best car of your dreams.

Party planning service

If you do not celebrate in a restaurant, you should now get quotes for party service, location, tent rental, etc.. You may also need additional support staff for food distribution, concession stand (ask your planner for quote).

Determine the main contact person for guests

Explain your idea of the ceremony to your main ceremony contact person. Your guests can contact regarding surprises, wedding games, or your wedding to the contact person then.

Book More Entertainment

Plan in addition to music even more entertainment (eg magician, fireworks, balloon Actions) – then you should now get quotes already. Warning: Possibly a guest wants to surprise you with a same type of entertainment – you should speak first with your main contact person and clarify this.

Search Printing Company – Order invitation cards

Your invitation cards (and table and menu cards) must be printed in time. For larger weddings (over 100 guests), you should seek diverse possibilities. You can also order online invitation (here you should also print paper copies in any case).

Book wedding dance lessons

If you have planned to dance at the wedding,you should refresh your dance steps. Traditionally the bride and groom start dancing.
