1-6 Wedding Planning Tips and Tricks -Long Island Wedding DJ/entertainment

    1. Your guests come first – Figure out how many guests will be coming to your wedding. This will help you ensure you have enough seating at the ceremony, enough space at the reception, and enough food. You should allow up to 30 square feet per guest so everyone is comfortable.
    2. Outdoor wedding? Have a backup plan – You may start planning your wedding months ahead of time, but, unfortunately, the weather forecast doesn’t extend that far out. That is why it is good to have a backup plan because you never know what the weather is going to do.
    3. Get a credit card – Weddings cost money and that means you can take advantage of the rewards offered by a rewards credit card. These are rewards that are going to pay off for you and your new spouse.
    4. Vendor research – Vendor research can be really easy. Instead of searching for each one one-by-one, simply ask one vendor if he or she has recommendations. Being that they provide services at a lot of weddings, they are probably familiar with some of the best florists, photographers, etc.
    5. Create the meal plan – Go ahead and create a meal plan. You can have specific meals or you can opt for a little bit of everything to suit the different tastes that will attend. You know a lot of your guests, so think about what they may like. Consider that there may be vegetarians attending your wedding.
    6. One step at a time – You don’t want to overwhelm yourself with the details, so just take everything one step at a time. This means following the most logical order so you don’t do too much too fast.
