Selecting the Perfect Venue

Choosing the right venue is crucial to planning a dream wedding. Some factors to consider include the location, size, and availability of the venue. When choosing a venue, consider your budget, estimated number of guests, and your wedding’s theme. Here are a few steps to follow when selecting the perfect venue:

– Consider the location and accessibility of the venue

– Determine the venue’s capacity

– Identify the services included with the venue

– Check for availability on your preferred wedding date

– Consider the venue’s ambiance and whether it aligns with your theme

Finding the Right Vendors

Once you’ve selected your venue, it’s time to begin searching for the right vendors. Your wedding vendors play a significant role in making your dream wedding a reality. From photographers to florists, DJs, and caterers, each vendor brings something unique to your wedding day. Here are a few tips to help you find the right vendors:

– Begin by asking for recommendations from friends and family who have recently gotten married

– Research potential vendors online

– Read reviews and testimonials

– Schedule a consultation with potential vendors

– Compare pricing and inquire about additional fees, deposits, etc.

Creating a Timeline That Works

Another crucial step in planning a dream wedding is creating a timeline that works. Your timeline should include all the critical tasks leading up to your wedding day, from booking your venue and choosing your vendors to sending out invitations and finalizing your decorations. Here are a few things to keep in mind when creating your wedding timeline:

– Give yourself plenty of time to plan and prepare

– Start by creating a rough timeline, and then add more detail as you go

– Assign tasks to specific people or vendors

– Allow for flexibility and be willing to adjust your timeline as needed


Q: How much time should I give myself to plan a dream wedding?

A: Ideally, you should start planning your wedding at least a year in advance. However, if you have less time, don’t panic. You can still plan a dream wedding with a shorter timeline by being organized, decisive, and creative.

Q: How can I stay within my wedding budget?

A: One way to stay within your wedding budget is to prioritize your expenses. Determine which elements are most important to you, such as your venue or food, and allocate a larger portion of your budget to those areas. You can also save on costs by DIYing some items or opting for a smaller guest list.


Planning a dream wedding can be overwhelming, but with the right strategies, it can also be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. Remember to select the perfect venue, find the right vendors, and create a timeline that works. With these steps, you’ll be on your way to planning the perfect wedding in no time. Congratulations on your engagement, and may your wedding day be everything you’ve ever dreamed of.

“You will find that most times you have a vision of what it is that you want to accomplish and that’s most important. It allows you to work backwards and make cuts and changes that will still reflect the overall outcome you wish to achieve. What good is splurging on one particular item if it doesn’t result in the overall outcome you were trying to create?

We cannot say enough good things about this venue and the owners, Emily & Mike! It is truly a hidden gem. The garden is absolutely gorgeous – you really don’t even need to decorate because the scenery has so much beauty all itself. There are so many spots throughout the venue that could be used for different parts of an event, and no matter where you turned it was a perfect photo backdrop. Our friends and family kept telling us how beautiful the venue was and wondering how we found it.
