Wedding Planning Advice: Our Top 5 Golden Nuggets

Planning a wedding can be exciting and at times overwhelming. From selecting the perfect venue, curating the menu and deciding on music, every aspect requires careful consideration. If you are recently engaged and are beginning on this wonderful journey, let us share with you our top five golden nuggets of wedding planning advice compiled by the Marble team to help you confidently make those key decisions.

1. Finding the Right Wedding Venue

Your choice of venue sets the tone for your entire wedding celebration. Whether you envision an indoor affair in a stately ballroom, a romantic outdoor ceremony in a flourishing garden, or a cozy winter wedding in your favourite pub, couples will feel most comfortable if the venue reflects their personalities and preferences. Consider the season, the atmosphere you’re seeking, and the overall theme of your wedding when selecting your venue. For outdoor weddings, especially during the summer months, marquees can offer great versatility and a charming ambiance that can be tailored to your theme. We have created weddings from the traditional to the more adventurous including an entire pop-up village including a pub as an immersive wedding theme, to a Gloucestershire wedding with an ode to Burning Man, where we created the dancefloor in a Boeing 747.

2. Deciding on the Wedding Guest List

When it comes to the guest list, quality over quantity is key. Consider the size of your wedding venue, your budget, and how many people your nerves can handle! Decide whether you want to prioritise close family and friends or include a larger circle of acquaintances. Remember that every guest adds to the overall atmosphere of the wedding, so choose wisely to ensure a meaningful and memorable experience for everyone involved.

3. Choosing the Food

Food is a central element of any wedding celebration, and your menu is a great chance to share your tastes and preferences as a couple. Consider whether you want to incorporate a specific theme or particular cuisine that holds significance for you both. Whether you opt for a traditional sit-down dinner, a buffet-style banquet, or a cocktail reception with small plates and canapés, ensure that the menu is diverse, delicious, and accommodating to all dietary preferences and restrictions.

4. Selecting the Music

Music sets the mood and creates unforgettable moments throughout your wedding day. Decide whether you prefer the energy and versatility of a live band or the curated playlist and seamless transitions of a professional DJ. Consider your musical preferences, the ambiance you want to create, and the overall vibe of your wedding when selecting your entertainment. Don’t forget to include special songs that hold sentimental value for you as a couple, such as your first dance or a song that reminds you of your journey together. When the memory fades, it will be those sentimental moments that remain. 

We have worked with some really fantastic and professional bands and DJs to suit all rhythms and elements of the wedding day. As event organisers, we see how important music is to the success of a party. As music lovers ourselves, after all the time and effort invested into organising a wedding, we can not let your music fall short of incredible which is why we offer a music service for our wedding couples. We can create a musical programme for the entirety of your wedding celebration, whether that’s one half day or a three day wedding festival. So whether you want a bossa nova quartet for the drinks reception, a soloist for the service or a get-up-and-dance full brass band, our team knows just the people.

5. Picking a Dress Code and Theme

The dress code sets the tone for your wedding and helps the guests fit in with your theme. Whether you opt for a formal black-tie reception, a casual outdoor gathering, or a themed costume party, you’ll want a dress code which aligns with the overall vibe of your wedding. Consider incorporating elements of your personal style into the dress code, such as asking guests to wear a specific colour you are renowned for, or encouraging them to embrace a particular style that matches your venue theme. Take a look at the wedding we organised with a Bavarian Beer Garden party theme on the Friday, or  colourful Cuban themed wedding with latin vibes and colourful dresses, to match the tropical decor. 

So, you’re feeling ready? Then let’s go!

Wedding planning is an exciting journey filled with endless possibilities to make your day one of the most personal and memorable of your lives.
