Planning a Wedding? Helpful Tips!
Everyone wants their special day to be perfect. But starting the wedding planning process can be difficult. If you’re unsure on where to start, here are some helpful tips to get you on your way.
1. Determine a head count
Get a solid idea of how many guests will be showing up to your reception. If you’ll be hosting a small affair of close family members or a large party with friends and their dates, it’s a standard rule that you should allow for 25 to 30 square feet per guest. The number of approximate guests will help you choose the right size venue.
2. Pick your venue
Take time to look up all the local wedding venues in your area. Make sure that you are keeping your dream wedding in mind when looking for that special place. Make appointments to go see the venue and when your there imagine yourself getting married, dancing and having the best day of your life. If you can imagine getting married there, and it fulfills your dreams, then book it as soon as possible!
3. Consider the weather
Outdoor weddings can turn out beautifully, but there are always risks involved. Guests can end up feeling too hot or too cold, depending on the month you pick. There’s always the chance of a storm to drown out your day as well. Sometimes opting in for an indoor venue can end up as your best bet.
4. Set off a block of hotel rooms
Whether you have a handful of out-of-town guests or none at all, you’ll want to set up rooms for your wedding guests to stay. Your guests will feel relaxed not worrying about driving home. It will help keep the celebration go even longer.
5. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want
If there is something you think is missing from your event, don’t be afraid to speak up. Any vendor should be happy to accommodate you with requests and concerns.
6. Be present
Sometimes all the stress and excitement leading up to the big day can take away from what’s really important. Remember to take a breath and take in all that’s around you. This is a day you’ll keep close to your heart for the rest of your life. Enjoy every moment!
