The Groom too has a variety of essential accessories to ensure his day is completely running in order. We have combined a list below of import accessories for the Groom:

With so many choices in the snack factor, these days you can have snack buffets opposed to having a sit-down dinner. This gives guests a bigger opportunity to enjoy the party and dance more and spend time with friends, family and the Bride and Groom. If you would like to offer guests a sit down dinner anyways,  you can still facilitate them during the break periods of the ceremony and reception with a few nibbles to snack on such, finger eats and canapes.

Some people get grumpy on an empty stomach, so it is ideal to keep a nibble on hand for guests that came with a hungry tummy.


If you have a sweet and treats table, it allows guests to pick and choose their treats they feel like, opposed to be forced to eat a pudding they might not feel like. Also after dinner some guests might be full and not feel like a sweet straight away, so by having a table filled with sweets and treats, guests can help themselves as they choose.

This is also a delightful idea for children, however, keep in mind you might have a few crazy sugar rushed children running around, so its best to keep the table semi supervised or create a treat table for children only and adults only.

From biscuits, to candy, donuts to platters – there is a long list of ideas, that you can discuss with either your catered, venue that provides this service and discuss options with your wedding planner if you would like to do this yourself. You can ask local companies to do snack sweet platters too which could result in more cost-effective options.


Ladies and gents, this is something we cannot express enough. Food at weddings is one of the hottest topics that are discussed by guests. Its very important to have the right food and food that will have guests fully satisfied. However it can be costly when it comes to catering and its always highly advisable to have more than one option available. Do not go for the first catering company you think it cheap and affordable. Shop around, meet up with them and try the food first. Its also great to speak to the venue and ask them what they have in mind regards to catering as a lot of Venus do not necessarily allow outside catering and offer catering in house. Sit down with your venue coordinators and discuss food….yes food….. it seems like one of the options you need to worry the less about, however its one that is simply high up on the importance level.


Make sure you do some investigating when selecting a videographer. There is a reason some videographers offer dirt cheap rates; it could be that they have none or very little experience and you get a lot of junior videographers that are not able to capture everything due to a lack of experience.

Its advisable to investigate and get portfolios and find videographers that have great testimonials and have contactable references. You only get married once and you cannot recapture all of your moments so its essential that if you want to have a professional photographer that you have done the right research and also prepared a budget as these services do no always come cheap. Double check and make arrangements to meet up with the videographer, chat and ask as many questions as need be and ensure the videographer knows exactly what it is that you want as in effects way and which parts of the ceremony and venue are important to be captured on screen.
