Take The Stress Out Of Planning Your Big Day*

*This is a collaborative post*

It's no secret that I love everything about weddings. If you've read my 'about me' or have been following me since day one, you'll know that I have always dreamed of opening a bridal shop with one of my closest friends, ZoĆ«. 

Getting married is something I hope to only do the once. It's surely one of the most important days of any girl's life, and for you guys too I hope. As such it needs to be out of this world! 

Ask any bride to be how they're feeling and they'll usually come back with 'excited', 'nervous' and 'stressed.' It's not surprising really. There's so much that has to come together to make the day just perfect. Obviously factors like the weather can't be controlled but with enough preparation and organising, there's no reason why the rest of the day shouldn't go off without a hitch!  

Stan and wife Maria are the brains behind Headliner, a platform whereby people can book a band for their big day both easily and efficiently. They came up with the idea after struggling to find a decent band for their own wedding. If you're getting married and are looking to book a band on a budget or if if your band has perhaps let you down last minute, Headliner are your 'go-to' people. They'll guarantee a performance no matter what, so you can relax in the knowledge that at least one thing is taken care of. With thousands of professional bands, DJs and musicians for hire - all vetted by Headliner's talent team - you're sure to find a suitable act for your big day.  

Here is a handy checklist (not necessarily in order or exhaustive) for all you brides to be:

Set the date

Write a guest list

Choose your bridesmaids and groomsmen

Book the church/other and after venue

Decide on menu and organise catering

Book registrar/cleric/priest

Send out the invitations

Decide on hymns or ceremony music

Book the photographer

Choose your wedding dress

Go shopping with the bridesmaids and choose their dresses

If your man isn't sorting out the suits, organise the groomsmen's attire 

Pick your wedding shoes and jewellery 

Order flowers to be delivered on the day, don't forget the boutonnieres for the groomsmen! 

Choose a cake

Choose your theme/decor

Have a trial for your hair and makeup and also book for the big day

Buy or order the rings

Organise accommodation for guests if required

Book the honeymoon

Arrange the hen party or ask one of your bridesmaids to do this

Buy gifts for your bridesmaids

Buy or make the favours

Choose centrepieces

Organise a wedding gift list - send this out with the invitation 

Come up with a table plan and buy or make placecards 

Book transport 

Organise and print order of service

Consider wedding insurance

Arrange for your banns to be read 

Write your vows if you've decided to come up with your own

Once all that's done, sit back, relax and enjoy your special day!

Are you getting married soon? Perhaps you're considering a live band? Why not pop on over to Headliner and see what you think... 

Until next time! :)
