"the sooner you look the greater choice you have"
Wedding PlanningThe burning question is how soon do you start planning your wedding. The honest answer is, it is never too soon, although some venues and suppliers only work up to two years ahead.
In some locations, demand outweighs supply and the popular venues are always booked solid for the current year and in some cases most of the following year. As soon as you have an idea of the date, it is wise to start making appointments to view venues, check their availability and start formulating an image of how you want your wedding.
Other suppliers that need researching and booking early are your photographer, videographer, transport and wedding entertainment. With all four, they become a very important part of your day, so essential that you have a good rapport and confidence in their ability. When you have shortlisted from your research, consider asking to meet with them. It is only when you are face to face with someone that you will get a feeling about whether they are the right choice for you.
For all suppliers, insist on a contract detailing everything that has been agreed upon and signed by both parties and a copy retained by yourself. Keep receipts for all monies paid.
It is highly advisable to take out wedding insurance which would cover a variety of unforeseen circumstances. Most policies cover your deposits if a supplier closes down or fails to supply, or if the venue cancels or goes into liquidation or your circumstances change. Always read the policy schedule carefully for your level of cover.
Other considerations are your all important wedding clothes. Your wedding dress may need alterations which could take several months. Sourcing and selecting could take several months too. Have fun trying different styles on. Many brides say that the dress that suited them was very different from the style they first imagined they would buy.
For many suppliers, they are only able to provide for one wedding on any particular date. There is nothing worse than finding someone that fits the bill, then discover they are already booked up for your date. By searching and selecting early, you will have a far greater choice of suppliers.
