Wedding Planning Questions – Episode #143
We received a listener email with lots of wedding planning questions! Thank you for that. Also, we talk Kids and weddings.
Love listening to your podcast during my commute to work! I got engaged about a month ago and it is probably time to start planning. I have some questions I wanted to ask:
How much should I budget for a day of coordinator?
Would you know if there would be cost differences pending month for the reception? Possibly between Oct to March?
If a winter wedding, when do you suggest the bride and bridesmaids should start shopping to jump on discount deals?
Do wedding dress sellers participate in Black Friday?
I live in VA and pending price of venue, I am considering DC or Richmond to have the reception. Are you familiar with any venues you can recommend that will fit about 200?
***Kids and weddings***
Decide on whether you want kids at your ceremony and/or reception.
If you decide you do not want kids at either your ceremony and reception, make it clear on the invitation that this is adults only or a 13yrs + (whichever you decide)
Maybe you only want them at your reception.
Tips for if you decide to invite them:
- Offer a Kid's Meal
- If possible, seat all the parents and their children together at one table or at tables close to each other.
- Hire a chaperone or sitter
- You may need to create an entertainment space– a kid-friendly DVD, a few board games, electronic games, lawn games, or an arts and crafts space.
