First comes love, then comes...pulling your hair out over planning the wedding? Not a chance! If you’re sporting a new sparkly symbol of love on your hand, congratulations! We’ve put together our must-have tips for newly engaged couples-- so you can bask in this special time instead of spending it stressed and frustrated.
Hire A Wedding Planner
Don’t skip this! Hiring a wedding planner is extremely important-- especially if you’re serious about turning your wedding dreams into reality. It’s one of the most commonly reported regrets couples have about their big day. Wedding Planners are phenomenal at covering the details that normally fall through the cracks. They also have strong relationships with sought-after venues and vendors. Not only can wedding planners negotiate a better price for you; you’ll have access to a world of options that aren’t available to everyday people. They’re dedicated to you-- wedding planners make sure your day is seamlessly run and flawlessly perfect while you relax and enjoy your day.
Relish in the moment
Before you lose yourself in organza, buttercream frosting and roses, enjoy being engaged. Celebrate with friends and family. Savour this special time by taking photos or writing in a journal or blog you can revisit in the future. This is such a rare phase of your life-- soak it in! Cuddle up with your love and dream about your future.
What’s your bridal style?
Before you overwhelm yourself with Pinterest boards, blogs, and magazines, it’s important you know what style of bride you are. Our Bridal Style Quiz is designed to reveal your personality and bridal style so you have a wedding that expresses your unique love story-- not the cookie-cutter version of someone’s else day on Instagram. Take 5 minutes and find out what style of bride you are by completing our Bridal Style Quiz today. You might be surprised!
Celebrate what makes you unique
Weddings today bring personal love stories to life. Long gone are the days where you need to take part in traditions that mean little to you. Whether you’re whimsical, sleek, quirky, cool, or classic, there are plenty of ways to express your passions and lifestyle.
At Qube, we can help you personalise your wedding throughout the wedding narrative. From decor, florals, menu, and collaborative experiences, your wedding will be a one-of-a-kind celebration.
Love yoga? Host a group yoga class after your rehearsal dinner. Was your first date over a slice of delicious pizza? Serve it on the dance floor at midnight with interactive food trays. Love gin and tonics? Design your very own signature wedding G & T cocktail. There are so many ways to inject your unique flavour of love into your wedding celebration.
At Qube, our award-winning wedding specialists can help you creatively showcase your personalities so your wedding is a reflection of you.
Set your priorities
Before you start spending, sit down with your partner, you parents and future in-laws (and whoever else is financially contributing to the wedding celebration). Together, discuss what’s most important for you. Are you most inspired by creating a fabulous experience for your guests? Is gorgeous photography your number 1 priority? Are you most excited by 5-star cuisine? Opening up about your top preferences will guarantee you whip up a wedding you both love.
Let your imagination soar!
When you have access to a massive range of decor and props hire like we do at our Events Studios in Manchester, the only limitation is imagination. From giant chandeliers, candelabras, dinnerware, furniture, lighting features, textiles, backdrops, marquees, and so much more, your wedding can be whatever you wish. Themes like Alice in Wonderland, tropical paradise and winter wonderland are just the tip of the iceberg. Anything’s possible! Come pick up your options to set up yourself, or allow us to handle the delivery and assembly. As the UK’s leading events producers, no idea is off the table. This is your day-- celebrate it with elements that thrill and delight you.
