Where to begin? Date, color, venue? Color, venue, date… ?
Is is better to pick my date first before I begin planning? How can I begin decor planning if I don’t know what color scheme?
These are some of the questions we come across with newly engaged clients.
First, determining the style of your big day will help set the tone the decisions to follow. Semi-formal, formal, casual. Are you okay with guests wearing jeans, do you see flip flops and sandy beaches or ballrooms and gowns. Narrowing down the “feel” of your magical day will help narrow down venue options.
Next scope out your favorite venues and meet with your top three. You’re date has not been set yet so there is much more flexibility when you find the venue of your dreams. You will need your date set and your venue booked before you can begin booking the rest of your vendors. Your Wedding Planner can really help in this area. They can save you both money and time. They can tell you exactly which venues will be a good fit for what you are looking for.
