Just a couple of questions:

Organise your wedding party yourself

Do you accept the challenge of organising the wedding of your dreams? If you have a limited budget or if you like organising your own wedding party, organising your wedding yourself is definitely an option. Follow the steps below!

With a wedding planner

Organising a wedding party takes a lot of time, so ask yourself if you can clear your schedule. If you opt for a carefree organisation, you should outsource the organisation to a professional wedding planner. A wedding planner can take a lot of work off your hands, but requires a little more budget.

Find the perfect wedding venue

Wedding catering

You don't haphazardly choose catering or a wedding caterer. With original food trucks, a spectacular wedding cake, ... you will certainly score with your guests!

Disc jockey or party band?

There is nothing quite as romantic as a band playing in the background at a garden party. During the evening party, you may choose a wedding party DJ that will start the evening with your opening dance or a cover band.

Decoration of your wedding party

Wedding decoration largely determines the appearance of your wedding party. Think of beautiful flowers and plants or styling according to a theme.

Guest list and invitations

Creating the guest list for your wedding is a time consuming job and you cannot afford to make mistakes. Forgetting an aunt or uncle is unforgivable. Ask family and friends for help when putting together the guest list. Calendars are overflowing. The invitation for your wedding must therefore arrive well on time. You can also choose to send a 'save the date' first.

In many cases, you will expect evening wear from your guests, but sometimes it is nice or appropriate to choose a more specific dress code.



Preparing a budget for your wedding party is an ongoing process. You systematically adjust the provisional budget when you receive offers or when you can make a more targeted estimate. This event budget checklist will also help you organise a wedding.
