Wedding Celebrants in Queensland

If you’re planning a wedding in Brisbane or greater Queensland then you’ll need a marriage celebrant! Whether your ceremony will be formal or casual it’s important that you connect well with your wedding celebrant. The ideal wedding celebrant will be someone who makes you feel natural and relaxed. You should be able to pick up on their friendliness and organisational skills at your first meeting. They should show genuine interest in crafting an unique wedding ceremony that will incorporate aspects of your romantic journey along with the necessary legal requirements. Get in touch with a few celebrants, have a chat with them about your wedding ideas, and see whom you feel most comfortable with.

You might also like to check and see if your short-listed celebrants will be conducting any other weddings on your chosen date, and see how they plan to accommodate the timing of the ceremonies. You don’t want them stuck in traffic when they should be at your wedding!

Some Queensland marriage celebrants can offer extras like a PA system or microphone to ensure your guests can hear you well. This can be particularly important if you plan on having a video taken on your day. Be sure to give your videographer your celebrant’s details so they can plan the best way to capture your wedding.

Similarly, some celebrants have a signing table they can provide along with special signing pens and more. Be sure to ask what extra touches they provide as part of their wedding service.

👰 10 Things Every Queensland Bride Needs to Know to Plan the Best Wedding in Queensland

1. Wedding dresses can take a long time to arrive

Brisbane Brides should start looking for your wedding dress at least four to eight months prior to your wedding day.

2. Schedule trials for everything beauty related

The last thing an Queensland Bride needs is crazy eye-brow’s, hair colour disaster, or make-up that they hate. If you’re using a hairdresser, makeup-artist or beautician for the first time, make sure you schedule a trial. Allow enough time for any mistakes or disappointments to grow back or be rectified.

3. Ask your suppliers if they have other bookings on your wedding day

Peace of mind for Brisbane Brides is essential! You need to feel comfortable that your wedding suppliers will be able to accommodate your needs if any other wedding or event has delays. Do your Queensland wedding suppliers have enough time between commitments?

4. Ask your Queensland wedding suppliers if they have a backup plan in the event of sickness or other emergency

What will they do if they are ill on your wedding day or there is a family (or other) emergency?

5. Get a good night’s sleep the night before

No Brisbane Bride ever wanted a hangover on her wedding day! Schedule your ceremony rehearsal, hens’ party, catch-up with interstate friends and relatives either a couple of days before your wedding, or in the days after.

6. Something will go wrong on your wedding day

Brisbane Brides should create a list of suppliers and their contact number and give it to a member of their bridal party, relative or close friend. Make sure they have their mobile phone with them on your wedding day.

7. Prepare an emergency kit

Brisbane Brides should prepare an emergency kit and give it to a member of the bridal party or a close family member or friend. Include paracetamol, tampons, band aids, mints, lip-gloss, comb, etc. Guy’s pockets can also be great for this! Give your Dad your lippy! Also make sure you have water available for the bridal party throughout the day.

8. Delegate tasks on your wedding day

Brisbane Brides should enjoy their wedding day! Delegate tasks to family and friends. Ask someone to collect the cards on the night and put them somewhere safe so they are not left around and forgotten or stolen. Let family or friends know if they can take home table centrepieces or decorations. Have someone nominated to take photos, be in charge of the guest-book, etc on the day.

9. Schedule some time-out after your ceremony

Enjoy being newly married! Have a bit to eat and enjoy each other’s company in between photo sessions and greeting guests at your reception. Also make time to share a special moment with those close to you.

10. Queensland Bride name change tips

If you’re planning on changing your name, make sure all of your honeymoon reservations are made in your new name. You’ll also need a new passport if heading overseas. Also, sometimes when checking in or collection tickets you’ll need to present the credit card used for purchase, so you might need to travel with cards in your Maiden and Married names.
