What isnt necessary when it comes to weddings

Our amazing honeymoon is more important to us than the wedding itself.. so what do i really not need to include in my wedding in order to keep costs to a minimum :)

Fable Studio Co

Hi Bride-to-be,

This is very good question to aks for the starting point of your wedding planning process.

Obviously your honeymoon is very important for you and that will be on the top of the hierarchy.  And ceremony is a celebration and also the legal process of your marriage, which has to be there.  You can have very simple and elegant decoration for your ceremony, it won't cost that much and plus you can DIY this part. Finally, it is reception. You can only invite closed families and friends to your reception to reduce the cost. To have a cozy and intimate wedding is the way to save you heaps of money and make the day very personal.  I mean you can have several different ways to save money for the honeymoon, and cutting numbers will be the most effective way.

Hopefully this information will help you for your wedding planning.  Good luck for everything,  in case you need me, here is my contact. Info@fablestudio.co

How do I encourage guests to write in my guest book?

I'm providing a guest book but I dont want it to be left in the corner with no love!!! how do I get people to write in it without necessarily approaching them and asking directly?

Fable Studio Co

Hi there,

The guest book can be as classic as a book, or can be very creative. The creative guest book is more engaging and more fun. I know some couples provided the wooden blocks from jumbling towers as their guestbook. The guests signed on the blocks and put them in a jar. After the wedding, you can still hold on those toys as part of family entertainment and also your wedding memories. That is just an example of creative guest book. You can find something truly reflects both of you and your partner.

Hope this piece of info could help and good luck for your wedding planning.

Do I Need A Wedding Planner?

I've Heard Mixed Reviews On Wedding Planners. Do I Really Need One? What Do I Get For My Money?

Fable Studio Co

Hi Cheryl,

I do understand your confusion. Let me make the point short and clear.

There three important factors to hold up a good wedding planning experience if you do your own. Passion (why you do it), patience (how you do it) and time (when you do it).

I am not talking about passion and patience here, they are factors you could actually own them. I am talking about the factor that cannot be easily controlled - TIME which reflect your availability and consistency. Wedding planners have all three core units to make a wedding go very smooth, in the other word, you are not only buying services from wedding planner, in fact, you are actually buying their times and skills to extend yours, and plus they have better resources to get your better deals. ;)

I guess that could help you out a little bit when you making decisions. Good luck and all the best for everything. In case you wanna talk, here is the contact: info@fablestudio.co

How do i invite guests to my ceremony but NOT my reception?

I have quite a few friends i want to attend my ceremony, but i wanted to keep my reception intimate with just close family and friends. how do i tell people they can come to the ceremony but not the reception??

Fable Studio Co

Hi Alexina,

The situation shouldn't be that hard if your ceremony venue and reception venue is separated. You can simply put "ceremony only" on your invitation. Make sure your ceremony looks very inviting, and better to prepare some snacks and drinks for your guests at ceremony, of course and music. :)

I wish the idea can help you out, all the best!! x

How long does it take to plan a wedding?!

I want to get married ASAP! How do I go about this?! Aiming for before the end of the year, but the earlier the better.

Fable Studio Co

Hey Marissa,

General speaking wedding planning process can take a year and this is "normal" time frame for both parties. However you can squish your planning process into 3-6 months, the bottom line is make sure to give your celebrant 4 weeks to register your paperwork. By the way, winter here is not peak season, you might get easier to book your venue, vendors and other wedding suppliers.

Good luck for your wedding planning.

Is it ok to have a few hours gap between the ceremony and reception?

I have friends and family travelling from overseas for the wedding. Day will start around 9ish with a bride pick up and wedding "gate crash" followed by tea ceremony and actual wedding ceremony around 12.30. Reception won't be until 6pm. Is that too long a break? My mum and rellies would like to refresh prior to reception and change clothes so they don't mind the gap but not sure what others will think...

Fable Studio Co

Hey Linda,

It is definitely A-OK. You don't need to worry too much about the gap in between, as long as you get the schedule planned and notified your guests.

You might have to concern below:

- book your markup and hair artist longer for extra touch-ups

- book your photographer longer for photo-shoot between the ceremony and reception

- prepare snacks and drinks for your guests at ceremony

- consider where your families (who came from overseas) go and what they do in between (I assume they probably not very familiar with your local area and don't have their own transport)

Hope those pieces of info could help to make decision for your planning process. All the best!!

Is it possible to have a nice but simple wedding for around $5000-$6000 for around 75 people in Syd

I'd like to know if it's possible to have a elegant but simple wedding for around $5000-$6000 (give or take). If you have managed to do this could please tell me how? Preferable in the Sydney, nsw area. Thank you

Fable Studio Co

Hi Brooke,

It is doable, but it will involve a lot of DIY and families and friends' help. Such as you could have a backyard wedding (private venue) instead of hiring a venue, if the backyard could possible contain 75 people, and it is a bonus if the place has some nice plants. You prob spend most of your budget on food and drinks and hiring reception furniture (wine barrels are good option for cocktail party), however it will save your money from DIY decor part.

Just keep in mind, work on your budget and list down the priority you want to achieve for your wedding.

Good luck for your planning and all the best. :)

Is it possible to plan a wedding in only four months or so?


Fable Studio Co

Hi Jessica,

Congratulations! Yes, it is still doable.

Here are some tips: make a list of your wedding plan (The list is very important, make some big categories and details can come later) , select two items matter most and book it first, such as certain venue or particular photographer, or live bands etc. Because you have such short period to plan your wedding, you might need to save your time and money on certain items. For example, you can send out the digital Save-The-Date instead of mailing hard copy to your guests, and skip the RSVP card, put digital RSVP info on your invitation, let your guests reply online instead of waiting for actual mail. Be realistic and enjoyable for the whole planning process and if tiny mistakes happen just keep moving. Finally you and your fiancé need to make decisions quick.

Hopefully, those little tips can help you out, good luck to your wedding planning and all the best. <3

I want to involve my step mum in my wedding, but I'm not sure what to do?

I think it'd be nice to have her as part of the day, as I adore her. My dad is walking me down the aisle, and I don't want to upset my bio mum, but I want to make my step mum feel included as she raised me... thoughts?

Fable Studio Co

Hey there, I know it will be tricky when your wedding plan comes down to the divorced and remarried family situation. Firstly of all, You don't want your mum feel like her role has been taken, because that is all mums' dreams. She wants to be part of your wedding plan, such as selecting wedding gown with you. And of course you don't want your step mum feel has been left out either (I guess you two have a good relationship, otherwise you won't be that struggle.) Ask her opinion about your wedding, make her feel more be needed. Secondly, try to avoid any awkwardness, it all comes to you how to balance the role on the day. Be confident and authentic to yourself and both your parents and stepparents, talk to them how do you feel and your plan or arrangement, I believe they will understand. How do they react on the wedding day, it really depends on the relationship between your mum and step mum, and you will be the KEY factor. If comes down to the detail plan, you really need more efforts to make your wedding goes smooth, such as how they will be seated in ceremony and your reception. I hope it will be helpful for your scenario, wish you all the best and good luck to your wedding. xoxo
