Planing the wedding of your dreams in Coffs Harbour or on the Coffs Coast.

Important Early Decisions

DECIDE THE DATE This   is   your   first   priority.      It   is   useful   to   also   choose   some   ‘fall-back’   dates   in   case   some   of your preferred choices are unavailable. Apart from your personal preferences - you might need to consider : The availability of your chosen bridal party. Avoiding   School   and   Public   Holiday   periods   with   lower   accommodation   availability and higher tariffs - if you are planning on a lot of out of town guests. Travel arrangement options for out of town guests. Availability of possible Venue, Celebrant, etc. Honeymoon Booking availability. SELECT BASIC FORMAT Decide    what    basic    form    you    would    like    your    wedding    to    take    -    large,    small    -    a    church wedding,   a   celebrant   wedding   -   at   home,   at   a   venue   -   indoors,   outdoors   -   formal,   smart,   or casual. CREATE   A   WEDDING   BUDGET    -   decide   first,   how   much   you   are   prepared   to   spend   in   total -   then   break   this   amount   down   into   the   various   components   -   Invitations,   gowns/formal wear,     ceremony,     celebrant,     reception,     transport,     photography,     video,     honeymoon     etc.       Breaking   components   further   into   sub   groups   will   help   set   realistic   spend   levels   e.g..   Split   - Reception into venue charges, food, and decorating. COMMITMENT AND BOOKING Commitment   and   Booking   is   a   ‘trade-off’.      Deciding   and   booking   reserves   your   place,   but   it limits   your   options   to   change   your   mind   if   you   encounter   a   better   alternative.      Most   venues and services charge a Booking Fee, which you forfeit if you cancel - usually around $100 .
