So You’re Engaged! Now What?


You found your perfect match- but how do you go about planning your perfect day? Where is a good place in the planning process to start? How do you know if you’re supposed to contact the caterer first? Or the photographer? Or the….. AAHHHHHHH!

No need to panic! We are here to walk you through what’s best to work on first.

We always recommend beginning with building your guest list. This will help you make a decision on the size and overall budget for the wedding day. Once you have that piece in place you can begin thinking about your reception venue.

Have no idea what you are looking for in an event space? Simply answer the questions below and this will help you narrow down the ambiance of the day. If you have no preference, leave it blank.


Do you want the ceremony and reception to be in the same place?

Do you have a strong preference towards outdoor/indoor ceremony?

What size ceremony/reception site do you need?

Do you want an elegant reception or more casual or laid back feel?

Do you prefer an afternoon or evening wedding? What day of the week?

Do you want dancing at your reception?

Do you want a cocktail hour? Same or different location for dinner?

Do you want appetizers/dessert or a full meal at your reception?

Do you want a live band at your reception/ceremony?

Do you want alcohol at your reception?

Do you want seating for everyone or scattered cocktail tables?


Once you’ve answered these questions you will be on a great path to finding the perfect space!
