The beginning stages of the wedding planning process can be overwhelming. Often times brides don’t know where to start, how to find vendors, how far in advance they have to book vendors, and more. If you’re in need of assistance to take some weight off your shoulders, then look no further! Joan from Geny’s Planning is sharing her insight on the ultimate planning tips and how they can help make the process go as smoothly as possible. Check out what she has to say below!
What should couples do first in the wedding planning process?
Joan: Great question! My advice is to first and foremost build that guest list! That way, when you are venue searching, you know exactly what venue capacity you are looking for. The last thing I want for anyone planning a wedding is for them to know have enough room for their guest count!
What is the lead time you need on booking certain vendors?
Joan: It truly depends on the vendor. It also depends on your wedding location, for example, Nashville is both a local and a destination wedding market, so I highly advise anyone planning a wedding to keep that in mind!
How can Geny’s Planning help you in this process?
Joan: For us personally, we like to build out a month by month “To Do” list, if you will. This helps the client and I stay on task. Geny’s Planning also has a running list of some of the top vendors in town, and can point you in the right direction. I’m only a click away from all of your wedding planning needs!
