It’s venue-searching time and if you haven’t booked for 2015 already, you better act fast! Venues are booking up quickly so if you want to have your wedding next year, you might consider booking a Friday or a Sunday. After the venue is secured, there is a whole checklist of vendors you’ll have to start researching. Some venues have their own in-house catering, but check with your venue as you may have to start researching outside caterers.
Your photographer could be next. What style of photos do you want for them to capture? Remember you’ll have them for a lifetime, so checking out photographers ahead of time will allow you to really get a feel for their work.
Florists are something else you’ll want to look into early as they all book up really fast. Start thinking about your colors, look on Pinterest for inspiration and check out who your venue and other vendors recommend. Some might even have their own resource list on their websites to help you start your search.
Come on down to the Original Wedding Expo this Sunday, September 21 in Sturbridge, MA at the Sturbridge Host Hotel. I’ll be exhibiting along with many other talented, experienced vendors. Look for me in the morning from 10 – 11am while you wait for the doors to open as I’ll be serenading the masses to give you a sample of my work. From 11a – 3:30pm I’ll be at Booth #10 near the runway! (Look for the “A Song Makes a Wedding sign” – I’ll be the one with a big bowl of candy!)
I can’t wait to meet you and talk with you about your vision for your ceremony music.
See you there!
