In the past few years, brides have gotten married all over the country. The number of wedding vendors has also sky rocketed, and I’m sure these trends will continue even more in the coming years. When I started my wedding planning business six years ago, there were no wedding packages to choose from. And even if there were, you could only find them on the web. Today, most of the wedding planning is done online, and everything is done online.
As a wedding planner, you usually know which vendors are worth your time and money. But in general, the wedding planning industry has changed drastically since the blog era. Back then, you’d find online wedding planners who were only in it to make a buck. Today, they’re trying to be leaders. We’re talking a lot about online and social media, but also about the value of the in-person wedding planning experience.
And for those of you who are looking for an all-inclusive wedding package near me, you need to know that the “in-person” part is the hardest part—and the only thing you should really expect from the vendor. It’s the day you’ll spend with the vendor and all the fun stuff, like having a photographer or a videographer for your wedding photos.
I really like the idea of a “wedding package near me” as a way to cut down on the stress of planning a wedding. After all, no one likes to plan the wedding themselves, so they can spend their time shopping instead. The vendors I like to work with all have a team of people who can help me out on a weekly basis, but there are many “big name” vendors out there.
Although you can always find a great wedding venue online, it’s a good idea to schedule a meeting with a real person who specializes in weddings to get a feel for the style and feel the venue should have. Then you can go from there. That way you can get a sense of what the venue is going to be like. Even if you don’t hire a wedding photographer, it can be helpful to get a sense of who the bride might like.
Wedding planning is a lot like buying a house. You want to get the feel for how the house will look from the inside, what kind of décor and decor you are planning on, and what furniture you are going to purchase.
The best way to do this is hire a wedding planner and go through the wedding planning process yourself. Then, once everything is set, you can do the same with the wedding. If you want to do it with your own wedding, go through the ceremony and reception planning process and then get a feel for how the venue will look from the inside.
Of course, you can also get this sort of feedback from other homeowners and see what they would have done and what they would have had to do to make the house look best. The truth is that there’s no one “right” answer. At least, none that I can think of. Your house may be unique and beautiful and unique, but you can’t know unless you actually check it out for yourself.
This is the way I do my own wedding and reception planning, so I’m not talking about the venue. I’m talking about the people that will sit with you and help you with all the last minute details, from the decor to who will do what and where and how, to who will pay for all the decorations.
Wedding planning is a lot of work and planning to the nth degree, but it can be fun and rewarding. If you can get yourself into a room with someone you trust and get a sense of how they think about your big day, then you’ve got yourself a winner.
