New Years resolution? Plan your wedding in 2020!

New Years resolution? Plan your wedding in 2020!

So you’ve gotten engaged…and stayed engaged, time to plan for your spring wedding in 2020!

You have enjoyed the ring, taken the engagement pictures, made the social media announcements…and now you’re stuck in the engagement rut.

Did you know that ⅔ of couples live together for at least two years before they get married? It’s time to take the plunge in 2020 and make it official!

We know the whole idea of a wedding seems expensive and daunting. It does not have to be! Here are 5 easy steps to getting out of the engagement rut and into a married life in the New Year!

1. Set a budget!

Don’t guess how much things will cost and assume you can afford it. Take a realistic look at finances and set a fixed amount. If people have offered to pay parts of the wedding, get that nailed down to a firm commitment and number. Allow a cushion of money for unplanned for expenses and then stick to your budget.

2. Prioritize!

Now that you have a budget-decide on your priorities. It helps to shop around while prioritizing to get an idea of the range and options your money can buy.

3. Guest List!

Once you know how much you have to spend and an idea of how you want to spend it-get your guest list together. This will give you an idea of what size venue you will need to get more precise vendor quotes.

4. Vision!

Now that you know how much, what is important, and who is important-decide what you want your special day to look like. Organizing your colors and details into a board can help. Pintrest has a wealth of ideas as do other sites.

5. Location, location, location!

Find a venue that speaks to your vision, can hold your guest count, and fits into your budget. Look for a venue that can handle all of your wedding day needs to keep the day stress free.

Vow Renewals
We Specialize in All-Inclusive

At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent.  There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding.  These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
