We’d like to share a few of our favorite tips and tricks to help make your wedding planning fun and enjoyable!

Tip 1: First Look or First Moment

This can save you time but it can also be such a sweet moment for just the two of you. If you do have your heart set on not seeing one another until the ceremony a first moment where you can hold hands or read a sweet letter to one another without seeing each other is a nice way to calm your nerves on the day of!

Tip 2: Make the Venue the First Stop

Before you make any moves, make sure to take some time to soak it all in. Congratulations! You’re on a journey to ever after, and this is a milestone worthy of a celebration. The first step after that is booking the venue. As far as timeline goes, there’s no right or wrong answer. You can secure your location as far ahead as three years in advance or just three months!

Tip 3: Keep Your Date Options Open

When it comes to picking a wedding date, there are so many things you’ll need to factor in. Are you hoping to exchange vows on a weekday or weekend? Saturday is the most popular day for weddings, so if you’re looking to trim your budget, you might want to consider a weekday instead. Also, are you open to all times of year? Weddings are in full swing during warm-weather season as well as fall. If you’re hoping for an outdoor wedding, this might be an important clue. But if you’re tying your knot indoors, then think about planning your big day during less-popular seasons.

Tip 4: Show Your Friends How to Bustle Your Dress

The photos are done, the guests are enjoying cocktails, and all you want to do is get into your reception, but nobody knows how to bustle your dress! This can take a surprisingly long time depending on the bustle so definitely take the time to show your wedding party how to help speed it along!

Tip 5: Enjoy Your Day!

This may sound like a given, but when all the aspects you’ve been planning for months finally come together, it’s easy to worry about how the event is going for your guests. Remember you’re marrying your best friend and the day is about the two of you. Luckily, we take care of many different aspects of your wedding so you can kick back and enjoy your big day.
