Every couple has their own unique picture of what their ideal wedding should be. However, the difficulty comes about when they need to translate their imagination into reality. This requires adequate and thorough planning.
To help you get started on your planning journey, we have our guests from Little Piney Lodge share their responses on the top 6 wedding planning questions. Are you ready with your pen and paper? Let’s get started!
- What common mistakes do you see couples making?
It is very common to find couples engaged in wedding preparation details especially during the last few days before the wedding because they are worried about all kinds of possible failures. As you plan for your wedding, it is very important to try as much as possible to avoid this situation through DELEGATION to trusted family and friends or Wedding Service Vendors. However, if you somehow find yourself in this position and some of the prep work is still not done, just let it go and do with what you have. I guarantee you will have much better results on the day of the wedding.
Another common mistake couples make is the provision of too much alcohol and not enough provision for water. During the planning process, keep in mind to make enough water available for all your wedding guests.
Amidst all the preparation and worry, couples forget to take a break and relax. Couples need to look and feel fresh to enjoy their wedding and one of the best ways to achieve that is to adequately have enough rest and relaxation to energize the body for the big day.
- What is the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Keep the focus on your love for each other. Remember, it’s all about your marriage and not just the wedding day. Only include things at your wedding if it helps showcase/celebrate your love for each other.
- What don’t couples know about your business that they need to know?
More than just providing a warm, serene, and attractive venue for your wedding, we offer you a comfortable and welcoming haven to help you get settled for your wedding day.
We don’t want you to feel shuffled around. That’s why we open our houses so you can spend the night on our property with your besties. That’s also why we want you to do your ceremony/cocktail hour and reception all HERE!
We want your wedding to be unique to YOU; that’s why we want you to bring in your own vendors. We have great vendor recommendations, but we’ll never accept a kickback from a vendor we recommend. It’s about YOU, not about us making more money.
- Which vendors do you think would be a good fit for us specifically?
Choose vendors who CARE! You don’t want to be a number on your wedding day. Sometimes vendors that have a huge online presence are so busy working on their perfect video for their Instagram story, they miss out on YOU!
- What’s the most unusual wedding you ever did?
A fabulous wedding that was planned in just 2 weeks! There was no time to fret over the details. Every decision was quick so nothing was overthought and they had SO MUCH FUN!
- What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked, and why?
Danielle and Zach ended the night by running through a sparkler tunnel and jumping into the lake in their dress and suit!
Another couple brought out giant dancing dinosaurs to the late-night dancefloor, a hilarious family tradition.
Chelsea and Brooks served ice cream instead of cake to their guests from an ice cream truck in lieu of a receiving line.
Normal is not always memorable. Don’t be afraid to do something different that’s totally YOU!
We, at Little Piney Lodge, are more than happy to help you make your wedding day come alive with the perfect venue and the best, suitable atmosphere. Kindly reach out to us as we would love to hear from you.
