Couples have the best intentions on telling me what they want rather than what they really need. Sometimes their expectations are a little too high. Couples want the Cinderella wedding but on a shoe string budget. Most of the time they want that $2000.00 limo for the day, but when they realize that the bride at the most will spend approx 45 minutes in the limo it really does not make a lot of sense when they are cutting their cake the driver is in the back seat smoking a cheap cigar a downing a whiskey flask
I was asked to write suggestions for Wedding couples on planning their day.
Once engaged and date figured out, you should reserve your wedding venue in one to two years in advance. Get the venue you want and make a deposit to reserve. If you are two years ahead you can negotiate pricing and might be able to get this years prices instead of paying pro-rated prices in the future. Most venues actually charge more for a Saturday booking rather than a Friday night or Sunday afternoon / evening. So If you book in advance you have a better chance of negotiating a better price as they want the deposit.
For people who have already had their wedding please respond on this blog on excellent places for the future wedding couples, on places they can visit to help them decide on a venue. There are so many options out there, a little help in the right direction can go a long way.
Thank you for helping our new couples plan their day by your past experiences on great ideas and planning.
