Preparation

  1. Pick a date!

Why is this important?, because when preparing for a wedding if you don’t have your date it puts a lot of the planning on the back burner which can result in not getting your DREAM VENDORS.

Keep these 3 things in mind when picking  a date:

  1. Does the date have a special meaning?
  2. Do you want it to be Hot or Cold outside?
  3. Do you want it to be Inside or Outside?
  4. Choose your Vendors

           If you are like most newly engaged couples who have been searching for months or years for the perfect wedding vendors than you probably already know who you want, but if not you should start searching right away. Vendors tend to book up 2 years in advance and you don’t want to miss out. You can search these vendors on many social media sites or just a few to name: Wedding Wire, The Knot, Thumbtack..

    D.J’s – Do you want a party or just someone playing music?

Photographer – There are so many different types of styles out there, do you know which you prefer?

  • Light and Airy or Dark and Moody?
  • Traditional or Intimate?
  • Digitals or Prints?

Food- Did you say food? Are you wanting a sit down plated dinner, a buffet style, or what about appetizer bar? So many to choose from.

What about a dessert table for all your guest? It adds the perfect touch.

Florist – I love a wedding with fresh florals, it just makes the day, but it’s ok if you can’t afford them artificial ones can be just as beautiful.

  1. The Dress – Yes, this is very important! You have to start dress shopping months before the wedding. Please don’t assume you are going to walk into a bridal shop and they will have yours right on hand. This is not what happens in most cases. The movies are not real,lol.

Do you want to go traditional white, or what about ivory?, Do you want a sash or sleeves? A Long train? Oh the decisions are endless.

Side Note: YOU WILL KNOW IT’S WHEN IT’S THE ONE!

  1. Guess what we forgot? To set a BUDGET! Yep after all this planning , you were just getting everything you wanted and didn’t even think twice about the money. Girl, do yourself a favor! Set a budget so you don’t go overboard! (because it is so easy to do)
  2. The last tip I am going to give to you is HAVE FUN, No! Seriously. This is YOUR wedding day. No one else’s make it the best experience you can. When things don’t go your way take a step back,breathe and strategize to plan B.
