Essential Wedding Features You Should Reserve Early

Have you just been proposed to? First off, congratulations on the engagement. But now the real fun begins. For the next few months or even years depending on how long you plan to be engaged, will mark the exciting time of wedding planning. Most brides wait years to plan their perfect wedding, and when the day comes, it can feel like everything they had prepared for doesn’t go as smoothly as they hoped.

While you may have the picture in your head of what you want your day to be like and where it will be held, you will need to get started with reserving all the fine details so when the day comes you know for sure everything is taken care of. If it is within your budget, hiring an event planner can be extremely helpful to keep you on task, and so you know all payments are made when needed. Below are a few of the must-reserve early to alleviate some of the stress wedding planning can bring.



At the top of the list, you should always reserve the venue first. The reason being, places will fill up fast especially those that are in high demand. Bakersfield wedding venue, Tuscan Gardens can book early and up to six months out during wedding season. Most places will have you put down a deposit to hold the location, and the rest is due weeks before the wedding.



Next to where you will hold the wedding, thinking about what will be served during the reception is paramount. While your guests will be focused on you and your new spouse, enjoying the food is half the fun of a reception, along with the cake. Finding the best catering company with the right type of menu options you are looking for will make your dinner truly special. Some venue venues have catering on staff which can make it ten times easier to get everything you need when you have it all in one place.


The Dress

A wedding day is not complete without the beautiful dress that the bride walks down the aisle in. If you have some months or a year until the big day, you will want to find the dress early and have alterations done. This process can take months by itself depending on the dress shop you choose like David’s Bridal or perhaps longer at a wedding dress boutique. Shopping online can give you ideas about the style of dress and where you can purchase from.
