So now I take it you are past the engagement process now you are trying to pick the best time to get married. Here is a little introduction to my findings on what season is the most popular to tie the knot!
Trying to decide on a specific time of the year or month to get married will be one of the most important decisions you will make. This decision comes before you choose a venue, a dress, the vendors or anything else involved in your wedding day.
This is just the beginning of all thats involved so choose carefully.
Lets get down to the nitty gritty of which month is the favourite.
Local sounds more fun! Do you ever like going to the local market to do your shopping? A lot of people think buying local is far more beneficial- one for the local economy & two for your health.
There are hidden perk to using local vendors, and supporting them does more than put a smile on their face.
If you are into the destination wedding side of things, even just a small coastal country town like Phillip Island, these towns rely heavily on tourism (did you know wedding tourism is a thing?), so supporting the local businesses is forever appreciated.
Let's look at 4 reasons why to choose local vendors.
Okay so now its time to gather your nearest & dearest in order to move forward with the planning of your wedding.
This task can be quite challenging when planning.
You might have some life long friends who you know 100% will be there & also some friends that you feel obliged to invite but you aren't that close to anymore.
Just because you are getting married doesn't mean you have to invite anyone & everyone.
Most couples will have a budget per head therefore simply can't afford to splurge on the guest list.
Let me give you a few pointers for creating & culling!
We all know that feeling too well; when you are out & having too much fun, next minute the party or function is almost over, then its time to go home. Those feels are pretty shattering when you're in the mood for a big one! (Unless you are the opposite & looking for an excuse to go home...?) Thats why we are seeing trends shifting and that these after parties are becoming extremely popular. The wedding party, after the reception then moves on to a new venue to go all night!
Wedding venues have a curfew which usually coincides with their liquor licence, meaning they have to stop serving alcohol. Therefore, the party has to end.
Engaged & ready to follow the steps of preparing for the wedding? This is probably one of the most exciting parts, spending the day with your besties to find the ultimate dress that is going to make you look incredibly stunning!
Everyone is on their own journey & will do this very differently. Some girls might not even be engaged & they've chosen their wedding dress! Choose your own adventure!
