If you have been to Vermont then you understand why people fall in love with this magical place. If you have not visited then today is your lucky day because you have chosen the best possible state to host your dream wedding. Vermont’s rustic elegance, old world splendor and practical New England charm radiates through to everyone that visits. It is a four season state that offers a world of possibilities for many brides-to-be, if it is a winter wonderland wedding with sleigh rides, or a natural outdoor wedding filled with orchids, roses and calla lilies, Vermont provides you with limitless opportunities.
Where do you start planning your Vermont Wedding?
The excitement of planning a wedding is at times overshadowed by the anxiety caused by deciding a budget, the venue, who to or not to invite, which wedding vendors to select etc. But do not let the stress completely overwhelm you because if you start planning for your wedding 16 months ahead (the length of an average U.S. engagement) your wedding planning will be stress free, super exciting and memorable. Always remember to prioritize items that should be handled at the beginning of the planning phase and keep in mind whatever limitations you may have.
Planning a wedding in Vermont is great because the state is filled with outstanding wedding professionals who are dedicated to ensuring that your wedding is exactly as you imagined it. Whether you are a native Vermonter or a have a love for New England - the quaint towns, natural settings, foliage, maple syrup, small farming communities meadows, covered bridges etc. - we guarantee that your wedding planning experience will be one that you will cherish for years to come.
For starters we recommend asking yourself some questions that will aide in your Vermont wedding process:
What time frame are you working with?
Whether you plan on having a long or short engagement it’s important to take the time to consider all the elements that go into planning and coordinating a wedding. The benefit associated with having a long engagement is that you will have ample time to search for vendors and secure a vendor who you desire. A short wedding engagement is great if you are a highly organized individual who knows what you want and likes condensing long term plans into one quickly executed plan. Either way, whether you have a long or short term engagement remember that the engagement period is a time for you and your partner to grow closer to one another - so enjoy it.
How big or small do you want the wedding to be?
If you have always dreamed of an elaborate wedding with 400 guests or a small intimate wedding with your closest friends and family, having a clear vision of your wedding is important. Most importantly discussing your expectations with your partner to ensure that you are on the same page is crucial.
Who will be paying the bills?
Marketing research shows that many couples are paying for their own wedding and if you are like one of the many couples then you have to be honest with your partner and talk about your wedding budget and what you would consider as priorities. Its advantageous to put a list together of who will be assisting you pay for the wedding - your parents, and future in-laws.
Are there any family traditions, and will the ceremony involve a specific religion or a mix of religions?
As a precaution to possibly offending your partner’s family by not including family traditions you better do some research and ask your family and future in-laws if there are any family traditions that you should include in the ceremony. Same policy regarding religion make sure you discuss and establish if the ceremony will include a religious tone - if so which one.
