Personalize your wedding envelope

Adding personalized stamps to your wedding envelope is becoming a popular trend. Many clients and myself love to have the clients details throughout the entire wedding process. Invitations and postage normally set the tone for your clients, they then will get an idea what type of wedding there will be. The overall color and theme.

The Perfect Venue

Finding the perfect venue is the very most important thing you should look for first when planning your wedding. Once you have determined the size, budget, location and style you will better have an idea as to the look of the venue you would like. Most venues require a deposit the day you reserve and a cancellation fee. So be sure you absolutely love the venue of your choice. Keep in mind hiring a full time wedding planner can help you determine which venues would be best because they work close with preferred vendors. Here are a few important considerations to keep in mind when selecting the perfect place.

Size- Choose a location that’s great for the size of your guest count. Do not choose a spacious venue if your guest count is smaller because you will have more to decorate and the tables will be far apart from each other. Make your guest feel comfortable.

Layout- Make sure your layout is correct so that you can easily set up chairs and tables, cake table,bridal table, food table (If having a buffet style), gift table etc.

Travel- When picking the perfect venue ask yourself is the destination accessible, how long does it take your guest to get from ceremony to reception if not in the same location. If within budget consider hiring a bus transportation to transport you guest to the reception and back. You don’t want to loose your guest because of the distance that they may have to travel.

Formality- The level of formality is very important because it sets the time and day of your wedding. If your having a morning or afternoon reception you can be more informal or formal as you want, but if it’s in the evening it’s usually a more formal reception which requires a more formal venue.

Before you sign a contract with the venue be sure to have a tour to make sure all your needs are meet. Check for all the important things. Ask what are their restrictions for you and your vendors. Make sure theirs parking for your guest. And most important make sure it is what you want.
