Planning the event of your life can come with a lot of stress and indecision. Of course, it is ok to feel overwhelmed, considering you’re getting ready for a new chapter in your life. We shared some of the best tips you can use to plan your wedding, based on the most common questions asked by couples to Defiance Ridge Vineyards’ team!
#1 What common mistakes do you see couples making?
Pro tip: avoid concentrating on each small detail and don’t go over budget.
Many couples feel like it’s their responsibility to manage every small detail. But instead of doing this, it is best to concentrate on how to start your life together without going into depth. Not being financially wise can cause long-term problems.
#2 What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Pro tip: ask for help.
You can tell your photographer which guests are more important to you. And you can allow someone to organize the seating chart. Each activity related to your wedding can be designated to a friend or loved one so that you avoid unnecessary stress.
#3 What don’t couples know about your business that they need to know?
Pro tip: ask as many questions as possible.
The goal of having a wedding photographer is to catch all those subtle moments candidly. Your guests shouldn’t be aware of his presence. But, of course, group and family photos are an important part of any wedding. So, make sure you ask all the questions you need about how a photographer can help you immortalize the most important day of your life.
#4 What questions should couples be asking that they don’t know to ask?
Pro tip: avoid making endless lists with questions.
Each photographer has an individual approach to his projects. So, before you start asking those questions you’ve seen on the internet, it is best to take the time to understand his shooting style, involvement in your special day, and several other similar aspects. It would be best if you didn’t overlook the importance of technical details, like how many photographs he will take or how many will be edited.
#6 What’s your best piece of advice for couples planning a wedding?
Pro tip: prioritize and focus on spending time with your loved ones.
Many couples get carried away during the wedding day and simply overlook spending quality time with those important to them. So, it is best to prioritize the event and sneak away for a couple of minutes after the ceremony or reception.
#7 What’s the most unusual wedding you ever did?
Pro tip: it isn’t unusual if it reveals your taste and personality.
Many couples opt for themed weddings and get their venues decorated accordingly. For example, some couples did a Back to the Future wedding, while others aimed from a prom night theme.
#8 What was the most memorable wedding you have ever worked, and why?
Pro tip: each wedding is memorable in its unique way.
Of course, those wedding fails you read about on the internet can make your wedding memorable. Maybe you’ve fallen out of the horse-drawn carriage or simply stumbled upon the cake. These funny details will make you remember the event for years to come.
So, now that you know some of the best wedding planning tips, you can reach out to the Defiance Ridge Vineyards team for help!
