Your Wedding Checklist Guide

Planning a wedding can be a whirlwind of decisions and details, leaving you feeling overwhelmed. But fear not, because when it comes to furniture and decor, Luxe Hire has got you covered!

If you’re not sure where to begin with your wedding furniture and decor needs, our comprehensive checklist is here to guide you through every step of the way. From the ceremony to the reception, we’ve curated a list of essentials to ensure your big day is nothing short of spectacular.

Let’s break it down:

Ceremony Checklist:

  • Seating and Tables: Consider the layout of your ceremony space and the number of guests attending to ensure everyone has a comfortable seat. Opt for chairs or bench seats that match your wedding theme and provide ample space for guests to witness your special moment.
  • Backdrop or Structure: Your backdrop sets the scene for your vows and serves as a focal point for photos. Whether it’s a arch decorated with florals, a mesh frame, or a simple fabric drape, choose a backdrop that complements your overall wedding aesthetic.
  • Special Extras: Don’t forget to account for unexpected weather conditions. Providing umbrellas for shade or protection from light rain ensures that your guests are comfortable throughout the ceremony. Additionally, well-placed signage helps guide guests and adds a personal touch to your ceremony space.

Cocktail Hour Checklist:

  • Seating and Tables: Create inviting spaces for guests to socialise and enjoy drinks and appetizers. Mix and match seating options like lounge settings, cocktail tables and stools to accommodate different preferences.
  • Food and Drink: Coordinate with your caterer to ensure that they have all the necessary equipment and servingware for cocktail hour. Offering a variety of canapés and drinks enhances the guest experience.
  • Decor and Signs: Use decor elements like cushions, rugs, and textiles to add warmth and personality to your cocktail hour space. Signs indicating the drinks menu, lawn games, and restrooms help guests navigate the area seamlessly.

Reception Checklist:

  • Seating and Tables: Whether you’re opting for a formal sit-down dinner or a more casual buffet-style meal, ensure that there are enough seats and tables for all your guests. Consider adding extra touches like charger plates and napkins to elevate the dining experience.
  • Catering Equipment: Work closely with your caterer to finalise the details of your menu and determine the necessary servingware and utensils. Investing in quality glassware and platters enhances the presentation of your food and drinks.
  • Decor and Backdrops: Create a visually stunning reception space with table decor, backdrops for photo booths, plinths, and elegant accents like flower arrangements and candle holders. These elements tie together your wedding theme and create memorable photo opportunities for you and your guests.
