Given all of the excitement and stress – yes, the two things can definitely co-exist – involved in organising a wedding, it shouldn’t be too surprising to anyone that certain details can be easily forgotten. Of course, both the stress and the excitement may be doubled if you’re specifically looking to tie the knot abroad – and that means even more scope to overlook certain things.
So, what are just some aspects of your upcoming nuptials that we’d especially urge you not to allow to slip your mind?
The light and weather conditions
It’s understandable that with Gibraltar sporting such a pleasant Mediterranean climate, you might think the state of the sky isn’t something you’ll need to think about much when tying the knot here.
However, even in Gibraltar, it’s well worth having a contingency plan in case of a bit of rain, especially if you’re getting married here outside the peak summer months. Oh, and also look up when the sun will be setting on your intended date. That way, you and your beloved can arrange to be available at that time to pose for some gorgeously-lit photos, instead of cutting the cake.
Food and water
The inevitable rushing around from one place to another that is likely to characterise your wedding day may well leave the two of you feeling a little parched and ravenous – and yet, so many couples overlook the importance of keeping themselves well-fed and watered.
That’s why we’d certainly recommend a satisfying breakfast and ensuring plenty of water and some snacks are available for you to reach for at any given time during this extremely busy day. Our Lounge Restaurant Wedding Package may also be of interest to you if fine cuisine is something you desire from your wedding, given that it includes a fabulous three-course meal for two.
It might be sufficient just to have a relatively rudimentary book and pens ready and waiting to get your ceremony attendees eagerly signing your guestbook. But why settle for the basics when it’s the most special day of your life we’re talking about here?
So, apply some thought to how you could make your guestbook really special. Have you got a dedicated space for the guestbook, so that people will actually notice it? What about putting a cute sign on the table to direct people’s attentions to it, or even providing a Polaroid camera that guests could use to take a selfie as well, effectively turning your guestbook into a scrapbook of memories? It’s all possible.
The ease with which things like the above can be overlooked may be precisely why you seek out professional wedding planners in Gibraltar – such as our own here at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings – to take a lot of the pressure associated with organising your nuptials off your shoulders.
