Begin Planning Your Winter Wedding Now

Why You Should Start Planning Your Winter Wedding Now

Even though Florida may never be known as a winter wonderland, the winter season is an absolutely fantastic time of year to get married. We’re still months away from the cold season. But it’s never too early to start planning for your big day. If you start getting everything ready in advance, then it’s much less likely that you’ll run into any problems. In fact, we’re going to explain why you should plan your wedding right now (or as soon as possible).


Venues Get Backlogged

If you have your heart set on a fancy venue, then you’ll want to reserve as early as you can. A venue you think is awesome is likely to have a lot of other fans. Some hot spots are reserved several months in advance, so the sooner you act, the better. It’s not a bad idea to have a backup plan or two just in case the first dream venue isn’t available for your wedding date.


People Have Busy Lives

One thing you always need to consider is the fact that people have busy lives. Although you and others in your circle of family and friends might be in a position where you can drop everything at the drop of a hat to attend a wedding, many people need a notice far in advance. The general rule is that it’s never too early to send out Save the Date cards or emails.


Need to Reserve Equipment

There are many different items you may want to rent for your wedding instead of purchase because you’ll save a lot of money and it’s more convenient. A lot of equipment doesn’t typically need to be reserved far in advance, but it’s always a safer bet when you’re absolutely positive that everything’s set. Plus, this will allow you to have more choices so everything will match your wedding properly.


Time to Fix Mishaps

Everyone wants their wedding to go off without a hitch from beginning to end, but the truth is that mishaps do happen from time to time. The further in advance you can start planning some of the details and make arrangements, the more time you’ll have to fix any problems that might crop up. Of course, you may still have last-minute issues, but this makes it less likely.


Why You Should Rent Some Items for a Winter Wedding

As you can see, the best way to ensure that everything goes smoothly is to plan your wedding far in advance. Much of your planning involves getting all of the equipment together from tables and chairs to tents and dance floors. Purchasing all of these items can be a hassle, not to mention expensive.


Here are some reasons why we’d suggest you rent instead of purchase whenever you can:


  • Saves You Money — Purchasing all of the equipment that you need for a wedding will send your budget skyrocketing. It’s much better to rent equipment because you’ll only pay a fraction of the price.
  • More Convenient — The idea of organizing all the equipment and supplies needed for your wedding can be very stressful. It’s a lot easier to have a rental company drop everything off and get it set up for you.
  • Style & Color Matching — Even though exchanging vows and getting started on your new life together is what’s important, you still want everything to look good. Renting equipment helps ensure that the tables, chairs, dinnerware, flatware, and other items properly match.
  • Many Available Items — In addition to standard fare such as tables and chairs, you could also rent a variety of other equipment such as tentstent accessories, concessions, dance floor, catering equipment, wedding arches, and more. This gives you a lot of flexibility for your nuptials and gives you an opportunity to delight your guests.
