After you have had your initial discussions with your fiancé regarding your style, requisites, and budgets for the overall wedding it is time to put together a plan for each aspect.
Lock down your venue
It is important to decide on a date range and select where you want to hold your wedding. Whether it is a traditional church wedding, winery, a beach, a function room, or a gorgeous forest backdrop, you will be able to find the perfect venue in our categories covering:
Venues usually require a deposit to lock in your date, and final payment just before the wedding date. In the mean time you can generally book in for menu tastings and decide on the food for the day and advise the venue of numbers on final payment.
Lock down the people involved
Once this is sorted out, you will know the date and location for all of the service providers on the day. These include:
If your function venue or reception area does not provide food (such as a garden party or beach reception) you will need to book in catering. Think about what you and your partner like to eat, if you want sit down meals, or if you would like a cocktail function to determine style of food. Our suppliers will be able to discuss all the options and logistical points with you.
DJ’s and music
We have a fantastic range of DJ’s and live bands that service the Southwest Region. It is important to book them in early to get the type of entertainment you want.
Hair and Makeup
In order to look your best on your wedding day, book in only the best hair stylist and make-up artist. We have plenty of talented providers to choose from. When selecting a hair and makeup artist it is best practice to have a trial run to see how it will look on the day.
Limos and Cars
Limos and Wedding Cars need to be booked in as soon as you have the date in place. We have a very wide selection for our Margaret River and South West directory users to choose from. Whether it is a classic car, or a modern Chrysler Limo, we have them all under one category for you to browse.
You need to be perfectly comfortable with the celebrant you choose for your day so it is wise to meet them beforehand or at least speak over the phone, Skype, or request a sample of their work via video. The celebrants in the Margaret River Wedding Directory can guide you through your day, give you advice on legal documents, and can also provide a full service performing the ceremony also.
Record your wedding day
On the big day you will find that everything goes by so quickly. It is great to sit down after the wedding and see photos, watch the video, and checkout your guest book with fun photos taken in the photo booth. You can find amazing suppliers to make up your team in our categories for:
Choose your decorations

You can also liaise with the wedding planner regarding any of the preferred suppliers you like from the Margaret River Wedding Directory. You can peruse:
Organise your guests
It is likely that if you are not a local to Margaret River or the South West, that your guests will not be either. They will require accommodation, as well as yourself needing a luxurious wedding suite. Be sure to book this as soon as you have a date for your wedding so you can tell your hair and makeup providers where to go on the day, and where you will be collected from for the transport provider. Many accommodation places also provide discount deals for wedding guests, especially if you are also having the wedding there. Check out our Accommodation category for ideas.
There is no doubt that different brides have different styles and visions for their wedding day. You might have a tight budget, want a simple dress, or want to go all out and wear the most glamorous dress you can find. And when it comes to suits, you can make it easy by hiring from a retailer which supplies to the region. Get these things organised well in advance to avoid disappointment and account for any alterations. Check out our Bridal Wear and Suits section for more info.
