  • 3 MonthsNow is the time to be sending out the weddinginvitations. This would also be the ideal time to beescorting the mums into town to organise their outfits(Dont forget the hats!)Also:-1. Choose the hymns and choice of music.2. Arrange for the Order of Service sheets to be printed.

    6 WeeksYou should now be fairly well organised and in theenvious position of sitting back and relaxing for a coupleof weeks in the full knowledge that there are a whole hostof people out there worrying on your behalf. However,on your one weekend off between now and the big day,it might be an excellent idea to nip out and choose somepresents for the bridesmaids, and perhaps some flowersfor the mums.

    4 WeeksThe pace is starting to hot up now. Its time to seewhether everyone else has been as organised as you.

    1. Confirm the reception venue booking, and numbers attending.2. Confirm details with the photographer.3. Confirm the wedding cars.4. Confirm details with the florist and give final numbers for buttonholes.5. Confirm travel and hotel bookings for the honeymoon. N.B. Check passport.

    10 to 7 DaysIf you havent organised a rehearsal of the ceremonynow might be a good time to meet with the best man,bridesmaids and ushers to finalise arrangements andresponsibilities.

    1. Practise your make-up.2. Take the headdress to your hairdresser. 3. Give the Order of Service sheets to the vicar. And, perhaps most importantly of all... START PACKING FOR THE HONEYMOON.

    One Day to GoTry and delegate as much work as possible. Have yourbeauty treatment, finish off any packing that still remainsto be done for the honeymoon, lay out your wedding andgoing away ensemble, relax and put your feet up.

    The Wedding DayAssuming a 2pm Wedding, the brides timetable will runsomething like this:-8.00 Have a shower or relaxing bath8.30 Have a good breakfast9.00 Polish your nails9.30 Hairdressers11.00 Best man arrives to collect the luggage/greetings cards/telegrams11.30 The Bridesmaids/pageboys arrive12.00 Make-up12.30 The Bride and Bridesmaids dress1.00 The photographer arrives1.30 The first car takes the mother and the

  • The tradition and conventions of wedding etiquettewill not suit everyone but it is important to be awareof them.

    This explanation of who does what in thepreparations and ceremony aims to enable you tomake an informed decision on the best way to runyour wedding day.

    Wedding Etiquette

    Planning your Special Day

    The BrideThe bride traditionally selects the type of service. She overseesall the preparations, which include choosing the date and thechurch, who her attendants will be, her own dress andaccessories, as well as those of the bridemaids. She will choosethe flowers, help with the guest list and seating arrangements,and attend to the many small details which will contribute to herperfect day.

    The GroomThe groom has to arrange transport for himself, the bride andthe wedding party, as well as hiring the church and booking thehoneymoon. However, this will be done with direction from hisfuture wife. The groom chooses his best man and ushers, ofwhich it is traditional to have three, and is conventionally givenresponsibility for little else! However, in reality, the bride andgroom discuss most aspects of the day as it is, after all, theirwedding.

    At the reception, the groom will reply to the brides fathersspeech, thanking the brides parents and guests, and proposinga toast to the bridesmaids.

    The Best ManTraditionally, the best man is responsible for his own dress andthat of the groom. He sees that transport to the church for themboth is arranged, and also organises the Stag Night, preferablyseveral days or even weeks in advance, if he is to successfullyfulfil his duty of escorting the groom to the church on time.

    On the day, the best man has to ensure that the whole day runssmoothly, primarily ensuring safe keeping of the rings. After theceremony, he is responsible for transportation of all the gueststo the reception. The best man will speak at the reception,replying to the grooms toast to the bridesmaids, and will readout a few cards and telegrams from guests unable to attend. Hisfinal responsibility of the day is to ensure that the bride andgroom leave the reception in good time, and that their transportis arranged.

    The Chief BridesmaidThe chief bridesmaid is chosen by the bride to assist her duringthe preparations. On the day itself, it is her job to make sure thatall the other attendants are in their places. She will arrange thebrides dress and veil when she arrives, ready for her entry intothe church. During the service, she holds the brides bouquet.The chief bridesmaid also signs the register, along with the bestman. She is then escorted by the best man, and will be on handall day to assist the bride.

    UshersThe ushers greet the guests as they arrive at the church. Theywill distribute the service sheets and show people to their seats.If it is raining they will help escort the guests and bridal partyfrom their cars to the church under umbrellas.

    The Brides FatherMuch of the brides fathers responsibility lies with the financialaspect of the event, as traditionally, he pays the bulk of the costs.Nowadays, though, it is likely that the bride and groom will meetsome of the expenses themselves and also a possibility that thegrooms family will make some contribution.

    On the day, the bride will be accompanied to the church by herfather, who will escort her up the aisle and give her away duringthe ceremony. The brides father will sit next to the bride on thetop table during the wedding breakfast, and will make the firstspeech, in which he proposes a toast to the bride and groom.

    The Brides MotherThe brides mother will help her daughter with the weddingarrangements and may have a major role in the decisions taken,especially if she is contributing financially. She will compile theguest list, in consultation with the groom and his parents. Shemay organise the sending of invitations, and the display of thewedding gifts.

    The brides mother will not only stand proudly watching herdaughter on this special day, but is there to oversee all thearrangements, as well as to stand in line to greet the guests,along with her husband.

    The Grooms ParentsThere is no specific traditional role for the grooms parents, butit is important that they do not feel neglected. Today, it is notunusual for the grooms parents to make a considerablecontribution to organisation and payment. It is only goodmanners, on the part of the bride, to ask their advice andapproval and ensure they are included as much as possible inthe preparations.

  • Fittings and Dress DetailsThe most important decision for any Bride when planning her wedding is made when choosing her dress. Like every Brideyou will want to wear the most beautiful dress you have ever seen. It is best to go shopping with someone whose opinion youvalue, but dont let them push you into a decision you may regret later.

    Our advice is that you should fall in love with your dress as you did with your husband to be. When you find your dress youwill know instinctively it is the one for you.

    Please ensure you have your lingerie and shoes with you for all fittings. Below we have provided space for you to keep a record of your fitting times:
