I’m excited to introduce my new series about wedding planning. My sister is getting married in October of this year and I have officially taken over as wedding planner extraordinaire. Something about my obsession with weddings coupled with her absolute lack of interest, we make a pretty good team. Since I’m a rookie at this, I thought I’d share my experience with you all, step by step, a “how to” plan your wedding if you will. I think if you know someone or happen to be one of the lucky type A personalities out there, there’s no reason you can’t do it yourself!
So first step, secure a date! How do you do this? Most importantly, find a venue (and confirm the dates with your officiant, if needed). So here are a few of the venues I’ve run across doing my research, some casual with benches and pillows, some more elegant with a long rose-lined aisle. Which is your favorite?
