So you just got engaged, congrats! That was the easy part. Now it’s time to tackle the mission of creating your beautiful wedding day. This will take time, effort, and a team. This team can consist of a small group of you and your bridesmaids or a elite force of family members and vendors. The important thing is finding the right vendor that fits your needs for the day you envision.
January through March is a great time to book your vendors because this is when their calendars get created, dates are filled and deals are made! Most vendors offer huge discounts for booking your wedding with them early, so take advantage of this time!
Social Media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook are great places to see the latest trends in Weddings. You can also follow certain vendors to see how the work behind the scenes and what they produce. Wedding Planners also fill their calendars at this time of year. You will be surprised how affordable day of planners can be. Start here and you can benefit from the relationships that most planners already have with vendors here in the DFW Metroplex.
Out of all of these options, Bridal Shows are the equivalent of Black Friday at Christmas. Smaller shows may not have as many vendors present but this gives you the opportunity to actually talk with the vendors and get a feel for them. Bigger shows have more to offer as far as selection but just won’t be as intimate. Either way most vendors offer deep discounts at the show to earn your business and get another item checked off of your list. The longer your engagement, the more options you will have, so if you are getting married in under a year, you should start your search the day after that ring goes on. Take advantage now in the slow part of the season so your big day will be everything you imagined and more!
