Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Little Things Events offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


How do I create a timeline for the wedding day?

I don't know how long everything is going to take so how do I know how to plan out my day? I'm having a winter wedding so I want to do most of the photos before the ceremony. I want to get married during the "golden light" hours so at about 5PM so the reception can follow immediately after.

Little Things Events

Hey India,

Creating your timeline can be so tricky! My recommendation is to start with what you DO know (ceremony start time, reception start time, food service etc) and then start to build out from there.

Chat to your suppliers about how long they need for their elements (how long your hairstylist needs to do each head of hair, how long the florist needs to set up the venue, how long the caterers need between courses) and add their timings in. If you start nice and early and just keep adding to it, you'll see it start to come together as you get closer. 

I've written a blog about it on my website that might also help - https://www.littlethingsevents.com.au/blog/how-to-the-run-sheet-edition 

And if you're feeling really stuck, you could consider reaching out to a wedding planner in your local area for help. 

All the best with your planning!

Which suppliers need to come to the wedding rehearsal?

What needs to be rehearsed at the rehearsal dinner? Do suppliers get involved or is it mainly for the wedding party?

Little Things Events

Usually the wedding rehearsal is the bridal party and the person performing the ceremony (celebrant, priest, sheik etc), and if you have a wedding planner or on the day coordinator, it's a really good idea to get them along also. The main goal of the rehearsal is that everyone knows how the ceremony is going to flow - think of it like a mini dress rehearsal! If you have anyone outside of the bridal party involved for example doing readings or signing your papers, it can be a good idea to get them involved also if they are available. 

Good luck with the big day!

Advice for getting married at an AirBnB

We’re hoping to get married at an Air BnB - and make a wedding weekend out of it. Are there any logistical things that we need to think about that would be different from getting married at a traditional wedding venue? Things we need to consider?

Little Things Events

Helly lovely, this can be such a wonderful way to have a beautiful intimate wedding! A few things I would recommend checking into are:

  1. Firstly, do they allow events and weddings - absolutely 100% make sure they are across your plans, and keep them updated as you go so there are no crossed wires, and you don't get shut down half way through the night
  2. What restrictions there might be decoration wise - things like what you can hang (fairy lights, festoon lights etc), what materials you can use (glitter, petals, rice etc) and structurally what you can and can't do (if you're thinking of bringing in a marquee or tipi for example)
  3. Noise restrictions - being a residential property, how close are the neighbours, and what are the sound restrictions? Do you need to start earlier and finish at 10pm? If you are bringing in a DJ or band how will they monitor their sound level? Again, it would be awful to have a sound complaint interrupt the party!
  4. Parking - how many cars can the property fit and what are the nearby parking options like? Do you need to look into a group transport option such as a bus?
  5. Kitchen facilities - try to arrange a time for your caterer to see the kitchen space in person ahead of the big day so  you know if there is anything additional that you need to bring in so that they can get food out at the required times? 
  6. Bond and clean up - who is doing the clean up after, are you hiring a company to do it or managing yourselves? What does the bond look like for any damages and breakages and how will you manage this with your guests to ensure the property is respected?

Feel free to reach out if you have any more questions about how to arrange anything! Good luck with your planning. xx

What does an on-the-day wedding coordinator do?

Hi there. We were wondering if it's worth getting a wedding planner just to help us just on our wedding day, kind of take care of the small details and keep stress levels down. Is that what an on-the-day coordinator does? Thanks.

Little Things Events

Absolutely! Most wedding planners will offer an on the day coordination package, which is great for super organised couples who just need someone to help with set up and packdown, be the supplier liason and generally make sure everything runs to plan. I'm definitely biased, but I always recommend at least having an on the day coordinator to take that stress away from you both - means that you're not going to be fielding questions from suppliers on the day about set up, trying to set anything up or dealing with any issues that might arise.

Everyone has a slightly different process for this - at Little Things Events we will generally have a phone or video chat initially to make sure you're comfortable with the team, and then about 7-10 days out we'll meet face to face to step through your run sheet, handover details for your suppliers for us to touch base with, and then we're there at the rehearsal and dawn til stumps on the wedding day to make sure every detail is just right! My biggest advice when hiring a coordinator, is to make sure that you're finding someone that you like and trust and who understands your vision for the day. Good luck!
