A spring mountain wedding offers the perfect way to make your wedding memorable. The beautiful backdrop of mountains and flowers provides the ideal setting for wedding photographs. However, spring is one of the busiest seasons for weddings, so it’s essential to start planning as early as possible. Here are a few things to consider when planning your wedding.
Larger weddings and bridal parties call for planning further in advance. According to the Brides American Wedding Study, most weddings have an average of 167 guests or fewer than 200 people. Smaller weddings with immediate family can be planned on shorter notice because you don’t have to accommodate as many people. You can quickly send out invitations and call family to see if they will be able to attend. Including fewer guests simplifies the entire process.
For a spring mountain wedding, booking your venue as far in advance as possible is essential. Most wedding venues fill up quickly six months before wedding season. Brides who wait to deposit are unlikely to get the specific date they want. They may have to schedule their wedding for the middle of the week instead of the weekend because weekends are so popular.
If you’re unsure about the headcount and venue, you can go by the general rule of thumb: plan your wedding 1-2 years in advance. You can pick up bridal wedding planning on any online marketplace to help break down the exact timeline to plan the wedding. For example, wedding invitations should be sent out 3-4 months before. If you’re sending them out via traditional mail, send them six months before the big day.
All final things should be done 1-2 months before the wedding. Contact vendors to ensure they have the date on their calendar and review the menu. Attend final dress fittings to ensure everyone’s dress fits flawlessly. Take the time to ensure you have all the necessary documents for your marriage license. Develop a packing checklist if you’re headed out of town for the wedding.
