It always amazes me just how little planning some people do for their big day. Granted, some people take it to extremes but others just think everything will fall into place and not worry about it too much. It’s those people that get a big shock when the day arrives and things go wrong.
Take the wedding hall for instance. There have been so many cases where people just invite too many people and things get overcrowded very quickly. So I always recommend you properly measure up your hall and the number of people you are inviting to make sure there is room for everyone.
You can use several devices to measure the length and width of your hall. You get get extra length tape measures from DIY stores which will do the job. Or if you want to get technical then you can buy laser tape meaures which can do the job in seconds. You can see reviews here http://lasertapemeasure.org. These measure distances in seconds and you only need one person to use them. They are very accurate and will certainly speed up the process.
If you don’t have the funds for an electronic measuring device then you can also try an old fashioned trundle wheel which you can pick up very cheaply. Whatever you choose, just be sure to realise the importance of making sure your hall is big enough to accommodate all your guests. The last thing you want is an overcrowded hall with lots of unhappy guests on your big day.
