10 Wedding Tips For Bride & Groom

Every bride and groom knows how important the wedding planning phase is in creating and achieving both a luxurious and unforgettable wedding day. From elegant venues to detailed touches, check out 10 of our best tips and ideas:

1. Booking your venue should be one of the first items on your agenda so you can begin planning all other aspects of your celebration. Select a venue that fits your personality and style, complementing your uniqueness as a couple. For a memorable day, consider breathtaking locations and picturesque views.

2. Choosing a professional wedding planner will ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch. A great way to find quality recommendations is through coworkers, family, and friends. Depending on what venue you choose, many times the vendors have a list of planners that they refer to or that come highly recommended.

3. For an epicurean dining experience, connect with a renowned catering company that delights your palate. Often, venues will have a list of caterers that they recommend. Perhaps add a specialty drink or gourmet station for that special touch.

4. When it comes to opulent décor, the sky’s the limit. From elegant tablescapes and ambient lighting, to gorgeous floral arrangements and centerpieces, choose a floral artist who understands and articulates your vision, style, and signature.

5. Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life. Capturing memories with a gifted and skilled photographer and videographer is a must! You may also want to incorporate drone photography for aerial shots of your venue.

6. The reception is an integral part of your celebration, so seek out top-notch entertainment or a popular DJ for a party that is fun, engaging, and memorable for both you and your guests.

7. First impressions matter, and your wedding invitation is the very first thing each guest will encounter. So, why not design and customize your invitation, making it uniquely you. It will set the tone and help your guests get a taste of your vision and anticipate what’s to come on your big day.

8. Arranging special transportation for the bride and groom for a grand entrance and/or exit adds to the elegance of the day. Vintage cars are always a classic and nostalgic touch.

9. When choosing your hair and makeup artist, getting referrals is a great way to start. Make sure you look online for ideas and pictures. Before you book a trial run, check their availability for your wedding day. Shop around: Even if you really like the first artist, you may be more impressed with the second or even third. Tip to remember: When taking pictures, the camera never sees what our naked eye can see. With that in mind, don’t be afraid to allow your makeup artist to fill in those brows and even wear false eyelashes.

10. Last but not least, make sure the wedding party takes time for relaxation and wellness before the wedding day. More and more brides and their bridesmaids are booking a special day at a spa or wellness center to meet up and unwind. For the guys, golfing is a popular weekend getaway, as is spending time on the bay, smoking cigars, and drinking their favorite celebratory spirits
