At this point in the process of making your dream wedding a reality

At this point in the process of making your dream wedding a reality you have already learned much about negotiation and compromise. You and your fiancé are going through one of the best possible exercises to help you start thinking and acting as a couple. Traditionally weddings were considered the bride’s domain, where the groom was expected to do little more than dress for the occasion and say, “I do” at the proper time. Today the groom’s role is expanding considerably. Many grooms are involved in and enthusiastic about their wedding and take an active part in selecting everything from the music to the menu. Though you have no doubt been overwhelmed with the “expert advice” of well-meaning family and friends, remember that the wedding in question is yours, and you and your fiancé should make it an expression of both of you as a couple. Be appreciative of other’s suggestions but firmly act on your own dream.

Now your attention should turn to the vendors

Now your attention should turn to the vendors (service providers) you plan to use. Here again your own priorities, as well as the constraints of your budget, will shape which wedding services mean the most to you. To one bride wedding dollars paid out for florals are more important than those allocated to photography. To another the opposite is true. Often the music at the reception is the most critical. It just depends on your own desires and monetary resources. The order here in addressing the selection of vendors is designed to convey our suggested priority. Again it is important to qualify vendors and contract for their services early. The quality service providers are usually booked months in advance. You don’t want to find the ones you desire unavailable.
