Happy Valentine's Day

What a romantic day to get married on, Valentine's Day. What a romantic day to perform wedding ceremonies, on Valentine's Day. All the couples were so beautiful and so much in love.

Where To Do Your Shopping

One way to keep costs to a minimum is by shopping at local antique stores, thrift stores and at yard sales instead of bridal boutiques and wedding super centers. You can borrow or rent items to help stay in your budget. Keep it simple. Another budget friendly idea is to get married during the week. As a rule vendors charge less on the weekdays. Have your reception earlier in the day so you don't have to provide a dinner. These are just a few suggestions to help keep your costs down. And don't forget to search the internet for more creative money-saving advice, tips and resources.

Creating A Budget!

To stay within you budget, you need to first sit down and create a budget and figure out exactly how much money you have to spend. Keeping track of it on paper makes it more real. If you keep track you are more likely to spend less. This is where a wedding planner book comes in handy. But don't forget "I couldn't possibly do without it" fund. Here's an interesting fact, 79% of the couples pay for part of their own wedding.

Where To Start

How do you keep track of all the things you need to do for your wedding ceremony and reception? Organization is the "key"! The best way to start is to get a spiral bound notebook with folders, a three ring binder, or a custom wedding planner book to keep all of your lists and receipts together. Another well organize idea is, do your research. Search for locations that would be suitable for your ceremony and reception and don't forget to get an officiant, call Can-A-Lope Weddings and we will meet you at the location of your choice.

Do I Send A Gift, Or Not?

I can't go to my friend's wedding, do I have to send a gift?

If you don’t attend, you are technically not required to send a gift. However, it is customary to send a gift anyway, and any gift that you do send will be appreciated. The general rule is that you have up to a year after the wedding to send something.

Plan Ahead

Give yourself plenty of time to plan your wedding the way you want it. It's not uncommon to spend as much as a year to start planning your wedding. The earlier you start planning your big event, the better, especially if you have your heart set on a certain location and date. If you are flexible about the date, you will have a better chance of booking the location of your dreams.

Wedding Planning Basics

1. When do you want to get married? This should be one of the first things you decide, along with the time of day to have your ceremony.
2. Do you need a wedding planner? Is it necessary and is it in the budget.
3. Who will officiate your ceremony? Do you have a minister already or do you need to find someone on Can-A-Lope Weddings.
4. What is your budget? This may be one of the most important aspect of your planning.
5. How many people are you wanting to invite?
6. How many people in the wedding party? Do you want to have a flower girl and or a ring bearer?
