{Planning a Wedding}

My sister is newly engaged and since we are no strangers to the wedding industry, I have agreed to help her.  Wow!  It is totally overwhelming to say the least!  There are SO many resources out there, it is hard to know where to begin.   Having photographed many weddings, I know hiring a wedding planner is incredibly helpful and valuable.  We have worked with many- and we know a few at the top of their game.  (See our preferred list below).  This article is helpful in understanding what they do-http://offbeatbride.com/2011/07/what-a-wedding-planner-or-day-of-coordinator-actually-does

Here is what we have done so far-

First, you must set your budget.  You really can’t do anything without doing this first.

Secondly, find your venue.  I recommend doing this before you set your date.  That way if your date isn’t available at a specific venue you love you can be flexible.  (Having some idea of a date is a good idea though).

Visit bridal shows, local collaborative wedding studios (The Wedding Resource Center in Boone is wonderful for High Country Weddings).  Or Studio Wed in Asheville is another good one.  There are so many vendors out there!  Ask your friends for referrals- that way you can know first hand how a vendor works.  Ask other vendors- the wedding industry is tight-knit and vendors often are happy to recommend their faves.

Meet with vendors or at least talk on the phone if you are planning a destination wedding.  It is important to click with your vendors.
