Time is valuable. We all only have so much time.
Not just in a day, but in our life.
So when you’re strapped for time already and planning your wedding seems to be sucking any free time you had… time becomes even more valuable.
And any way you can save time, can be a lifesaver.
To the rescue…time saving wedding planning tips! Easy and simple tips to help save you time planning your wedding (and many times money too)!
To kick off our inaugural time saving wedding planning tips, we’re going to start with a tip about your wedding venue.
Because your wedding venue is your biggest vendor. It’s not only where everything is taking place, but it affects EVERYTHING.
It affects all of your vendors. It affects all of your decor. And really, it affects all your decisions.
So, you’ve got to make sure you have all the info.
And one easy time saving way to do that is…
Do a venue walk through
You likely saw your venue when you first checked it out. But, when you were looking at it, it was more about assessing the overall look and feel. And seeing if it would be a good fit.
Once you start hiring wedding vendors, working on a schedule and planning the details of the day, looking at your wedding venue is different.
So, your venue walk through (or site visit) is your chance to walk through the venue as if it were the wedding.
That way you can discuss everything from parking to where catering is setting up to whether you can hang something from the ceiling.
The walk through is your chance to get all your questions answered. Even the ones you didn’t think about ahead of time. And it’s a chance for your venue (and vendors even) to get all of their questions answered.
Which means that by taking the 1-2 hours needed to do a venue walk through, you’ll save all the hours going back and forth over email with all the questions that keep popping up.
But, do you know what the best part is?
It’s also a good check to see if you’ve got everything on track, and that everyone is on the same page… or not!
Knowing either way, gives you a chance to adjust what you need to so that you ARE in good shape.
From the venue walk through, you’ll know exactly what you need to do or change moving forward. And so will your vendors.
You’ll have an action plan.
And that alone will save you so much time (and headaches)!
And it will also ensure you won’t run into any logistics nightmares on your wedding day.
So, schedule your venue walk through once you’ve hired most (if not all) of your vendors and at least 1-2 months before the wedding day.
And if you have 2 separate venues, make sure you do a walk through at both.
