Lay out your (realistic) options

When deciding on a theme for your big day, the important thing is to stay realistic. Be realistic about what you want and what you can actually expect.

Deciding to go with a backyard for a venue, whether it’s your own, your loved one’s or someone else’s. You may save up to 50 percent of your budget while at the same time adding a sentimental value to the ceremony.

However, to make sure your backyard theme sticks, there are a few things you’ll have to think about. Like: installing a dance floor and potentially renting a tent, renting portable restrooms, cooking equipment (or hiring a catering service), paying for pest-inspection and securing parking.

A winery

We love the idea of a “wine theme” for a wedding! Why? It’s romantic, it’s charming, it’s whimsical and – there’s plenty of vino to enjoy! Wineries usually have beautiful spaces (think sun-splashed patios or delightful courtyards) that will not only make your guests feel amazing but help your wedding photography and videography look splendid! Great news is that finding a winery has never been easier as they’ve been recently popping up like mushrooms!

The downside (sort of)? No full bar. Vino is all you get.

Go with a seasonal menu

Although your first instinct may be to impress the guests with some rich, heavy foods, think of it like this: the richer (read: heavier) food they eat, the closer they’ll get to a heart-attack (and ruin your day). Have a seasonal menu that’ll be refreshing and tasty. Rich salads (virtually any kind you like or even several), watermelon, tomatoes, barbeque, ice-cream cake, lemon sorbet, ice-cold vodka, prosecco (well cooled), ice pops, snow cones, etc. – these foods are a real crowd-pleaser!

Analogue and videotape the whole thing

To add some whimsy and charm to your wedding, instead of hiring a digital photographer, ask your talented analogue photography friend to capture all the most beautiful moments of the wedding. This will add incredible value to the photos and the entire experience.

If you are getting married, you’ll definitely want everything videotaped! Great news is that wedding videography in Sydney has become so popular that it feels like everyone’s doing it, which greatly improves the quality of video (read: competition).
