‘Tis the wonderful season of engagements! This means many of you are beginning the wedding planning process.
The first major detail is selecting a venue. For the most part, this needs to be done early on in order to secure a venue that fits the feel you are going for, and these babies fill up fast! Sometimes even more than a year in advance.
I’m sure you’re wondering how to even begin to navigate such a major decision. Wedding planning can look vastly different from person to person depending on a number of things. Be mindful of the way you would like you, your fiance + your guests to feel on your big day. Here are some details to consider before even thinking about committing to a venue.

Almost all other plans from the color story to the food served will be influenced by this first big decision. Once the date + location are determined, the rest of the pieces will begin to fall into place.
