Planning your dream wedding can seem a bit overwhelming without a great support team and a tried and true plan. But fear not! When you break it down, you are really only completing four steps:
Design: During your design time, you will set your budget and decide what type of venue you desire. Keep in mind all those great floral, lighting and drape ideas you have been pinning to your Pinterest boards when thinking of venues!
Distinction: This exciting step focuses on the selection of those distinct vendors that will bring your wedding day vision to life. Beginning with your wedding planner, you will be visiting with and then continuing with contracting the vendors that are a perfect fit for you.
Details: It’s all about the details! This step can be time consuming, but well worth it when you start to see all of your beautiful choices coming together and you get that first glimpse of how magical your wedding day will be.
Distribute: The final step in your journey is to distribute. Distribute what, you ask? All of the details you have planned with your distinct vendors from design until now. You have hand-picked a phenomenal florist – let them do their portion of the day. The baker bakes cakes on a daily basis and has it well under control. Your caterer could set up food stations in their sleep… Do you see where I am going with this?
You, the bride, have been surrounded by a whirlwind of activity for the last 6 to 9 months while planning what will surely be a glorious day, now sit back, relax and let your wedding planner and their fellow event professionals treat you like the VIP that you are. After all, you have just planned a wedding in four stress-free steps!
