4 Tips For Throwing a Large Wedding

Dec 8, 2023

Are you hosting a large wedding soon? If so, you likely understand that equipment like tables and chairs are essential to have secured before the event. Here are some more tips to help with your planning.

1. Hire a Professional Planner

Certain professionals deal with this type of work every day. So why stress yourself out when you can hand over the reins to a wedding professional who can create the perfect wedding of your dreams? They’ll handle the venue and the caterers, make appointments with bridal boutiques for dress fittings, mail RSVPs, hire florists, and anything else needed.

2. Create Your Guest List Early

One of the first things you should do when hosting a large wedding is get your guest list settled as soon as possible. After all, in addition to creating the list, you have to send out RSVPs and see who’ll be coming and who won’t be. Getting your guest list settled can help you work with caterers who need the headcount to supply adequate food. You also have to deal with how much seating you need at your wedding venue and how many hotel rooms you should block off. In other words, your guest list isn’t something that can afford to wait until the last minute.

3. Be Mindful of Blackout Dates

Be aware of important dates such as your parents’ anniversaries, milestone birthdays in the family, graduation dates, holidays, and public events like conferences, festivals, and parades. Mark off these dates as blackout dates on your wedding planning calendar so you don’t make the mistake of having your wedding day at a time when it’s too difficult for people to come.

4. Order the Right Rental Equipment

According to The Wedding Planner Institute, the average couple will spend $22,500 for their ceremony/reception. Save on spending with smart rentals from Allied Event Solutions.
