As you spend the first few days of planning, looking for the perfect agency for you, start looking at ateliers for the bride and groom’s outfits.
To save time you might choose the same atelier to dress the bride and groom.
Ask to see the collections of dresses they have in stock. Or ask to see dresses they can make in a time that is just right for your needs.
Don’t look at wedding dresses that they can’t deliver on time; you don’t even have to try them on lest you be disappointed.
Give yourself to shopping
Once you have determined the basics of organization, in the weeks leading up to the wedding go shopping.
- choose the wedding rings;
- purchase accessories (shoes, veil, etc.);
- schedule a menu tasting;
- put wedding favor ideas down on paper.
- reason about the honeymoon (best to rely on an agency).
