WWW- Wedding Wisdom Wednesday- End of the Night (for the guests)

Try to consider what will happen at the end of the evening.  What time do you think guests will start thinking of leaving.  What time is the DJ playing until?  Will you have a shuttle for your hotel guests?  Will you have an "after party" planned for guests who want to continue the night?  Will you provide food for the guests towards the end of the event?  Some people will bring out snacks around 10pm.  Thinking of your guests and how their night will end means that they will have a good time from start until finish.

Happy Planning

WWW- Wedding Wisdom Wednesday- Budget

Discuss and review your budget BEFORE you ever meet with any vendor.  If you only want to spend $100/table for each centerpiece, know that before you meet with you florist and share that with them.  This way you don't end up seeing centerpieces you don't want to splurge on and your florist knows the budget to work with.  It may seem simple but many people will go into a meeting with a vendor and tell them they don't know how much they should spend and leave it up to the vendor.  This is difficult for the vendor because they then have no idea how to plan and then they end up either disappointing the client or overwhelming them.
