👰 10 Things Every Perth Bride Needs to Know to Plan the Best Wedding in Perth (2022)

1. Wedding dresses can take a long time to arrive

Make sure you start looking for your wedding dress at least four to eight months prior to your wedding day.

2. Schedule trials for everything beauty related

The last thing a Perth Bride needs is crazy eye-brow’s, hair colour disaster, or make-up that they hate. If you’re using a hairdresser, makeup-artist or beautician for the first time, make sure you schedule a trial. Allow enough time for any mistakes or disappointments to grow back or be rectified.

3. Ask your suppliers if they have other bookings on your wedding day

Feel comfortable that they’ll be able to accommodate your needs if any other wedding or event has delays. Do they have enough time between commitments?

4. Ask your suppliers if they have a backup plan in the event of sickness or other emergency

What will they do if they are ill on your wedding day or there is a family (or other) emergency?

5. Get a good night’s sleep the night before

No Perth Bride ever wanted a hangover on her wedding day! Schedule your ceremony rehearsal, hens’ party, catch-up with interstate friends and relatives either a couple of days before your wedding, or in the days after.

6. Something will go wrong on your wedding day

Have a list of suppliers and their contact number and give to a member of your bridal party, relative or close friend. Make sure they have their mobile phone with them on your wedding day.

7. Prepare an emergency kit

Make sure you prepare an emergency kit and give it to a member of the bridal party or a close family member or friend. Include paracetamol, tampons, band aids, mints, lip-gloss, comb, etc. Guy’s pockets can also be great for this! Give your Dad your lippy! Also make sure you have water available for the bridal party throughout the day.

8. Delegate tasks on your wedding day

Adelaide Brides should enjoy their wedding day! Delegate tasks to family and friends. Ask someone to collect the cards on the night and put them somewhere safe so they are not left around and forgotten or stolen. Let family or friends know if they can take home table centrepieces or decorations. Have someone nominated to take photos, be in charge of the guest-book, etc on the day.

9. Schedule some time-out after your ceremony

Enjoy being newly married! Have a bit to eat and enjoy each other’s company in between photo sessions and greeting guests at your reception. Also make time to share a special moment with those close to you.

10. Perth Bride name change tips

If you’re planning on changing your name, make sure all of your honeymoon reservations are made in your new name. You’ll also need a new passport if heading overseas. Also, sometimes when checking in or collection tickets you’ll need to present the credit card used for purchase, so you might need to travel with cards in your Maiden and Married names.

🚗 How to Choose the Perfect Perth Wedding Cars (2022)

Your wedding cars are more than just getting you and your bridal party from A to B on your wedding day. Usually the best place to start is refining your wedding transport requirements, and here is Wedding WA’s handy check-list to help you out.

  1. How many people are you needing transport for?
  2. How many pickup locations?
  3. Will you require cars whilst undertaking photos after your ceremony?
  4. Will you require transfer to a reception venue?
  5. Will you require transfer to accommodation after your reception?
  6. Will you require transport for parents, children, or other special guests (eg grandparents)?
  7. Does your wedding have a theme that you would like your choice of wedding transport to accommodate?
  8. What will you be wearing? Brides with large trains, or hooped skirts may need wide access doors and a large seating area – small cabins might not be suitable.

Create an transport plan. Number of people, number of hours, start and end suburbs, type of cars most suitable – stretch limousine, classic cars, modern machines. Once you have this sorted, select a shortlist of wedding transport companies and send them an enquiry! Compare packages and inclusions and meet with your shortlisted wedding car suppliers. This will help you double check that they’re going to be able to deliver what you require.

Modern cars, class and vintage wedding cars, unique wedding cars, luxury cars and stretch limousines, you’re sure to find your perfect wedding cars on Wedding WA. No matter what type of car or how large your wedding party, you’re sure to find something to suit your requirements. Sit back, relax, and browse these popular Perth wedding car suppliers.

📷 How to Choose the Best Perth Wedding Photographer (2022)

Wedding WA’s 9 Step Guide to Finding the Best Perth Wedding Photographer

  1. How many photos are you looking for? A couple dozen amazing shots to build an album, have printed and displayed? or hundreds or thousands? Some photographers take less photos, but they might be more to your liking. Other photographers may take many images and many may be quite similar.
  2. Create an action plan. Will you require photos of you getting ready? travel to and arrival at ceremony venue? Ceremony (obviously)! Then groups – how many? Photo-shoot of newlyweds on location? Reception coverage? How many hours do you think this might be?
  3. Browse wedding photographer’s portfolios. Look at their different styles.
  4. Once you have selected a shortlist of photographers send them an enquiry!
  5. Meet with your shortlisted photographers and ask them to show you completed albums, or a large range of photos from a single wedding. This will help you double check that they’re going to be able to deliver they style and quantity of photos that you’re after.
  6. Make sure your personalities match! Will you be comfortable with them on your wedding day?
  7. Compare packages and inclusions.
  8. Get post production details. Will you expect every image to be art-worked? or just a few hero images?
  9. Once you’ve settled on a photographer, check their contract and look for additional costs like overtime, printing, supply of digital images, and cost for special effects.

Perth has some super talented wedding photographers. No matter what type of style or wedding coverage you’re after, you’re sure to find something to suit your requirements. Sit back, relax, and browse these popular Perth wedding photographers.

Browse affordable Perth wedding suppliers, real weddings, wedding inspiration and unique ideas, wedding package info, special offers and more.

1. Enjoy being engaged!

Be in the moment and enjoy this special time together. Start storyboarding your ideal wedding day. Discuss it together. What do you picture? Casual or Black Tie? Rustic or Fairy tale? Local or Destination? Wedding WA has real weddings you can browse for inspo.

2. Tell your family and friends

Announce your engagement and discuss your wedding plans with your family and friends. Find out if any VIPs (parents, potential bridal party members) have commitments that would rule out certain dates for people you really want attending your wedding.

3. Decide on the style of wedding

Your wedding style will narrow your venue choice. Venues often book many months, or years in advance. Once you have your wedding style, then it becomes easier to pick your venue. The most popular styles are:
Fairytale = city ballroom
Rustic = country or winery
Beach = coastal or water views
DIY = community hall, sporting venue, private home
Destination = somewhere with great views and accommodation.
Check out the Wedding WA venues or catering companies and make some enquiries as to availability and pricing.

4. Set your budget

Once you’re received info on potential venues, you can think about your budget. Talk to your parents and see if they plan on contributing towards your wedding. Think about how much you can save and afford to spend on your wedding. You might like to open a separate account for wedding savings and spending. Once you have a rough budget you can consider how many people you can afford to have at each venue. Of course, it’s also an option to ask people to donate cash in lieu of a gift to help off-set the cost. Wedding WA has a budget planner you can download to help you out.

5. Start booking!

Typically it is the reception venue selection that set’s the date. Then couples consider their ceremony venue – which may be at the same venue. Wedding WA has some great ceremony venues to consider – gardens, beaches and churches.

6. Photographers, video and cars!

Wedding photographers and cars can also be booked out many months, or years in advance. Don’t forget a video! Many couples skip the video, but it’s an gorgeous way to relive the forgotten or never seen moments. Have a browse through Wedding WA to find your preferred suppliers.

7. Celebrant

Your choice of celebrant can make or break your ceremony. Meet with a few and make sure they make you feel relaxed and confident. This will help with any nerves on the day.

8. Flowers, Decoration, Decor, Hire, Cake

What are you going to need to make your venue fabulous? Do you need to hire chairs and crockery for a DIY wedding? Will you have floral arbors and centerpieces? Some venue packages will include decorations – check what is included – it may be centerpieces, chair covers, etc. They may also include a wedding cake.
Consider a floral theme – it could be colour or style based. Remember that you’ll be holding your bouquet throughout the ceremony and photos – they can get heavy!
Will your wedding cake be used as dessert? This will determine what size your bakery will recommend. You can also get different tiers with different flavours! Heavenly! xx

9. Music and Entertainment

Musicians at your ceremony can set a lovely mood for your wedding. Other entertainment options are endless – DJ, swing band, jazz singers, band. Photobooths can be fun too!

10. You!

What are you going to look like and wear at your wedding? Browse through the Wedding WA fashion, hair and makeup, and rings and jewellery sections for inspo and amazing Perth suppliers.

11. Guest list and bridal party

Work out your guest list. Select your bridal party. It can be less stressful to select your bridal party closer to your wedding date, eg 3 months before. It’s easier to not select someone, than have to un-select them. Wedding WA has a guest list and seating planner you can download to help you out.
Invitations! Send out invitations for your hens or bucks party, and then the wedding. Typically wedding invitations are sent 3 months in advance. Although this is flexible, and sometimes a save-the-date is important especially for friends or family that might need to travel a long way, arrange time off work, or save up to attend!

12. Honeymoon

Yay! This can be any time you like. Soon after your wedding day, or some time later. Many travel agents offer a honeymoon registry and can be an easy, but fabulous gift from your guests. If you are planning on changing your name, ensure you have your passport and travel documents in the same name! It might also be necessary to have a credit card in this name too, especially when confirming bookings or collecting tickets.

13. The last details

Maybe you’re looking for something unique to finish off the day? Or a dance studio to WOW your guests with a special routine? A thank-you gift for your bridal party and / guests.
