While some couples are interested in getting married shortly after becoming engaged, you may want to wait a year or two before the ceremony and reception. This gives you plenty of time to prepare as your marriage date gets closer. However, you will find it more beneficial to find an excellent wedding venue and reserve a date far in advance.
Pick of the Litter
A major advantage that comes with booking a wedding venue a year or two in advance is that you will not have to worry about finding venues that are completely booked up.
First, you need to choose an easy to access location. If you are getting married somewhere where snow is common in the winter time, make sure that the destination you choose has roads that are plowed when it snows by the local governing body or by the property owners.
For example, a wedding out on a remote ranch can be beautiful, but if your guests can't get there because the roads are not plowed, that is probably not a great location for a winter wedding.
From finding the perfect dress and designing the invitation and catering menu, it is easy to see how the wedding planning process can be overwhelming. If you are one of the many brides who are opting for a rustic theme, complete with reclaimed wood, casual décor, and candlelight, finding a venue that complements this style can be even more challenging. While sufficient, a banquet hall does not align perfectly with a rustic theme.
Being able to find someone that you love enough to spend your life with is one of the most beautiful things to experience. That's the reason why making the wedding day memorable is something that many couples focus on while planning the special occasion. There are various things that can be done to make your wedding as memorable as possible, such as by capturing special moments. The task can be taken care of by professionals for the main moments during the ceremony, and your guests can participate as well.
A bizarre new trend in the world of bridal gowns has brides completely trash their wedding dresses. Since your wedding gown is probably the most expensive dress you will ever buy and/or wear, it gives you pause as to why anyone would do this. Sometimes it is fun, and sometimes it helps blow off steam from all of the stressful wedding preparations. Other brides do it so that if any careless wedding attendee spills food or alcohol on them, the brides will not have to sit and mourn the damage of their gowns.
