So often couples are told what to DO when planning a wedding but not so often told what to avoid. Of course, we all want to know what to do to succeed, especially when planning our wedding day. But just as important are the pitfalls and mistakes that are only made and realized after the fact, when it’s too late. I want to provide some simple suggestions that can help you navigate your way to a wonderful wedding day.
Visiting venues can be overwhelming, especially when you walk in and are totally overcome with that “this is the one!!” feeling. It’s easy to completely forget all of the questions you know you should ask (even if you’ve dutifully written them in your wedding planning notebook). While most of those questions are easy to email or call and ask, there are a few that are best asked on the spot. Allison from Davis Row compiled this list of questions best asked in person, including a few you may not have thought of.
Did you and bae get engaged recently? First, take at least a week to bask in the love and excitement. You have time! But, eventually, you’ll want to start choosing venues to visit. You can find tons of information about capacities, photos of ballrooms, and phone numbers for preferred florists all over venue websites, but there are so many more questions to ask. Schedule a visit (and make sure there’s space on your phone for video!) and bring these along.

Today’s lovely guest post comes to us from Paige Young of Apaige Photography, based in Georgetown Township, MI.
Wedding planning can become super overwhelming. I remember becoming engaged and being completely overwhelmed with the next steps. However, I had an advantage, as I had photographed over 80 weddings, and knew what the day entailed and what I needed to book and organize. I began researching vendors first, I think this is something that is extremely important. A wedding needs a place, and a wedding needs service vendors. Being a photographer, that was the first vendor on my list to figure out. There are so many great photographers out there, there are so many kickin’ DJ’s out there, and there are enormous amounts of venues that are breathtaking. Being a creative, I wanted to share a few helpful hints and ideas to help choose ‘your people.’ I will discuss more of the photography side of weddings since that is what I am familiar with, but a lot of these things can be applicable to other vendors as well.
If wedding planning has you feeling overwhelmed, have no fear! Today’s guest post, brought to us by Jamie Chang of Passport to Joy, will help you get organized. Enjoy:
