Trend alert! Couples are booking their vendors later…and later…and it’s going to be a problem.
There’s a misconception found in the “timelines” that national mags and blogs recommend. 6 months before your wedding is not “ample time” to book a florist, photographer or caterer.
There’s a lot to keep track of when planning a destination wedding which is why thinking ahead is hugely important if you’re envisioning a particular style for your big day or you’re marrying on a holiday weekend or anytime during Vermont’s peak season which is mid-June – early October.
It may feel like you have a lot of time when you first get engaged, but you want to get ahead of the game. Secure your key players and style-makers at least 12-9 months in advance.
This means your venue, food, florist & rentals should be your first four priorities.
This is how you’ll plan smarter and stress-less.
Once you secure your vendors you can take a small break from the planning (if you want to!) and then pick things back up again 6-4 months before your date.
My advice is to avoid this trend! Don’t book late for your very important date.
