Tips For Getting The Wedding Day Of Your Dreams (On The Day You Actually Want It)

J. Morris Flowers

When planning a special event like a wedding, it is important to start the planning process as early as possible, as many vendors are often booked up to a year or more in advance. This is especially true for florists, who are in high demand. 

In this blog post, we'll provide some useful tips on how you can get the wedding day of your dreams (on the exact date you want it):

Push your wedding date out as far as possible

Planning your wedding as far in advance as possible has numerous benefits, including:

  • Gives you time to research and compare vendors
  • Increases the chances of securing preferred vendors
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Gives guests more time to plan
  • Provides more options for venues and dates

Taking the time to plan your wedding well in advance allows for a more memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

Set the wedding budget:

When it comes to wedding planning, setting a budget is one of the most important steps.

Knowing how much to spend on your wedding will help you make decisions about all the other aspects of your special day.

When creating a budget, consider estimating the number of guests, the venue, catering, flowers, the cost of attire, and any additional expenses such as decorations or entertainment.

Unexpected costs may arise during the planning process so it's wise to set aside a small portion of the budget for them.

Book your venue first

Booking a venue early is essential to securing the best dates. Northern Virginia is fortunate to have a wide array of exquisite venues, all offering unique features and styles. Look at them online, or visit them in person. Here are some of our favorite venues:

Then book Your florist

The florist you choose will have a significant impact on the overall look and feel of your special day and selecting the perfect florist can help bring your vision to life.

Keep in mind that top florists tend to book up quickly. Start researching wedding florists well in advance to find the best fit. 

Make sure to see examples of their work and ask what types of flowers are in season during your wedding date. 

Booking your florist well in advance not only guarantees their availability but also allows for plenty of time to collaborate.

Book your other vendors

Once you have your venue and florist secured, you can work on booking your other vendors such as caterers, wedding coordinators, and photographers.
