Wedding Tips from Sabrina


“Here is a list of a few things to avoid, and recommendations to follow as you plan your special day. I've started with the 'Don'ts' first, but be sure to review the things to do on the next page. It's likely that much of this is common knowledge, but it never hurts to be reminded.”

A quick list of a few things to avoid, and recommendations to follow for wedding receptions           

  Do: give yourself plenty of time to plan.

Do: outline a realistic budget and timetable. These are mandatory to keep you on track.

Do: organize all of the pieces of your wedding. Purchasing a binder, which includes separate tabs for wedding professionals, appointments, contracts, gown/dress swatches, etc. is a great investment.

Do: prepare and follow a timetable of events. These should include appointments, deposits & payments, review contract terms, fittings, etc.

Do: coordinate every aspect of your wedding day. To ensure your wedding day is truly your special day, every item must be coordinated. Do not leave important decisions to someone else. This is your day and you are in control.

Do: hire professionals that you are comfortable with. If you are not comfortable speaking with someone, or if it seems like your questions or inquiries are just brushed off, then it would probably be a good idea to seek out someone else.

: consider the recommendations/suggestions of your vendors. A good wedding vendor's seasoned council and experienced opinions may help you avoid potential pitfalls.  
Do: take breaks during your planning. If you begin to get stressed or irritated, take a break, step back and work on something else for a while. Often times, the decisions made under extreme stress are later regretted.

Most importantly,
Do: enjoy yourself. This will be one of the most memorable times in your lives. Be sure to spend plenty of time with your friends, family and most importantly, your fiancé

We would like to leave you with this final thought: Most brides and grooms will struggle to keep their wedding costs low and maintain a reasonable budget. Recent bridal magazine surveys have determined that guests will remember the entertainment at your wedding reception, more than any other single item. On your special day you deserve more than some band just playing another gig. Make sure that whomever you hire for your musical entertainment is excited about celebrating with you and your guests.
