A wedding is a lot like a roller-coaster: you have the buildup, the terror, the excitement, and relief all in a single package. There are an average of 2.4 million weddings in the United States every year, meaning that the industry is constantly evolving as new trends and styles take over. Anyone that has planned a wedding knows that it takes countless hours, as every detail is just as significant as the last. Stay calm and do all of your research and I assure you that your wedding plans will do just fine.
On average, most brides plan their weddings for seven to 12 months in advance. This is because it is always a good idea to make advanced reservations for the wedding reception site, wedding officiant, supply rental company, food caters, cake designers, and other elements; most wedding experts suggest booking the most crucial of elements no less than nine months before the wedding. Recently, more weddings have placed an emphasis on the actual location of the wedding with nearly half of all couples researching reception venues on the internet to find the ideal location. Today, 40% of brides and grooms-to-be are looking for exciting event venues for their wedding reception to better reflect the couple’s personality.
The Most Beautiful Wedding Places
Up to 35% of weddings are now outdoor occasions with a significant portion of those being destination weddings. Some of the most beautiful wedding places include picturesque beaches, breathtaking mountains, or tranquil golf greens. A lot of couples underestimate the effects of natural lighting on a ceremony: 53% of weddings are performed in the afternoon, 31% are held in the evening, and 16% are done in the morning. No matter where you choose to hold you wedding, make sure that you do all you can to ensure that it is your ideal wedding — remember, a wedding is a symbolic binding of two lives: make sure that you both have a part in planning it!
