Summer is a wonderful time in Connecticut and offers a brilliant backdrop for weddings. The warm air, bright sunshine and variety of flowers and trees makes for a scenic background that is great for photographs and if you are planning a wedding, summer is an excellent time to choose. But summer can also be a very busy time for wedding venues and vendors so be sure to plan ahead to ensure your wedding runs smooth.
- Get a Head Start: Most brides will pick summer for their wedding. In Connecticut winters are quite harsh and fall and spring can be very unpredictable so couples will usually choose the safety of summer. This means you need to plan early to ensure you get the wedding venue you want and the vendors you desire for catering, floral arrangements, DJ’s and transportation. The longer you wait the less chance you have of booking someone before another bride does.
- Make the Facility a Top Priority: Once you have selected the date for your wedding, don’t hesitate in finding and booking the wedding facility. This decision needs to be made before any of the others since the location will determine many of the other vendors you choose. Be sure to arrange for personal tours of the wedding venues you are interested in and take as many pictures as possible to make the best decision when it comes to finding a wedding facility.
- Get Started on the Guest List: Since summer’s are such a busy wedding season it is important to get your invitations out as soon as possible. In addition to other weddings, your guests may have vacations and other events to attend so the sooner they get your invitation the better chance they will attend. Along with choosing the wedding venue, making the guest list should be top on your priority list and will help you in knowing how many people to expect which will help in planning your catering.
