Planning a wedding can be an arduous task involving the coordination of various service providers. From the moment the date is set, then one of the many Nottinghamshire wedding venues needs to be booked, the caterers arranged, the dress carefully selected, the reception planned and the Nottinghamshire wedding photographer booked.

All of this takes time, effort and money and it is crucial that all your resources are wisely spent. To ensure you have the appropriate wedding service providers on hand to help your special day runs smoothly we have listed some of the finest that Nottingham and the surrounding county has to offer.

Otherwise organisation is essential and many arrangements and bookings will need to be made well in advance of the actual day. In order to help you better plan for the big occasion we have supplied a suggested timeline:

Wedding venue selection: Probably the key decision for any couple. Venues should be considered and bookings made at least one year in advance. Flexibility of dates will allow more options, as will having an idea of your requirements before viewing.

Reception venue: Like the ceremony venue Nottinghamshire wedding venues should be considered well in advance, and allowing a year is advisable. Some venues accommodate the ceremony and the reception for greater convenience.

Bridal dress hire: Outfits for the bride and bridal party should be sought and hired approximately 4-6 months in advance of the wedding. Purchasing outfits will also require a similar timeframe as this can be one of the most time consuming tasks in planning a wedding.

Dresses and Suits : The groom, best man, father of the bride and father in law should not be forgotten and suit hire should be given adequate booking time. Three months is usually the minimum period advised to allow for selection of suit styles and ensure availability of the correct cravats, bow ties, cummerbunds, top hats and other accessories. Allowing three months also accounts for any additional fittings and tailoring that may be required.

Cars and Carriages: High quality transportation helps to ensure that the day runs smoothly and with style. Last-minute cancellations are rarely available so if you have your heart set on a horse and carriage or a particular classic or vintage automobile we advise booking three months in advance.

Rings and Jewellery : One of the least complicated aspects of a wedding. Wedding rings or bands are widely available and need not be purchased until one month before the wedding, still allowing time for any minor adjustments. Nottinghamshire jewellers recommend that you have your size measured several times in advance to ensure a better fit. Bespoke jewellery will of course need to be considered further in advance.

Photography & Video : When hiring someone to capture the occasion it is important that you check the standard of their work in advance and follow up on references. As with most service providers it is recommended that you meet the individual to ensure they meet your needs and know exactly what you want. Nottinghamshire Wedding Photographer should be approached up to nine months in advance of the big day.

Wedding Flowers : Nottinghamshire boasts a wide range of florists who can provide flowers for bouquets and arrangements for the ceremony and decoration of the venues. If possible discuss with them what ideas you have and gain from their professional experience. Portfolios and references should be viewed in advance and a florist booked approximately three months before the day.

Cakes and Catering: Some venues will provide or recommend caterers but if you have to source your own book early (up to a year in advance). Catering is pivotal to the success of your big day; as with all service providers the earlier the book the better your choice.

Marquee hire: Marquees allow couples to maximise the use of outdoor space and protect guests from the inclement British weather. There are a number of specialist marquee hire companies in and around Nottingham offering a wide range of marquees and high quality facilities to meet your needs and budget.
