Be flexible. 


Since 2022 is going to be such a busy year for weddings, many prime dates in May-September are filling up quickly. Consider having your wedding in a less busy month, and you may have more options available for venues and vendors. You may also consider a less traditional format or day of the week, like a brunch reception on a Sunday morning, or a station dinner on a Friday night. It’s also important to be flexible when allocating your budget. Costs of goods have risen and certain items may not be available due to supply shortages. Determine what elements of your wedding are must-haves, and understand that they may come at a premium.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions.


Wondering if the venue you love will fit your guest count? Unsure of how to accommodate dietary restrictions or what type of wine to serve? Just ask! We as vendors know that you don’t have all of the answers, and it’s our job to help you figure out how to make your event work for you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, we will always try to work with you to find the best solution.

Trust your vendors.


When you do pick your vendors, let their expertise guide you in crafting your day. You may have ideas in mind, or you might need some inspiration, but either way your vendors know the ins and outs of the industry. Trust them to nail down the details like timing and schedules and let yourself focus on the parts of the event that matter most – like sitting back and enjoying it!

We hope these tips can help you as you embark on your wedding planning adventure.
