I hope you had the best start to your week.
In terms of what I am doing this week, marking some big things off my wedding planning to do list is at the top of priorities. This has been the craziest month of wedding planning yet. I have been trying to finalize vendors and get a lot of things checked off so the remainder of wedding planning is a bit more slow moving. I have been using WeddingWire’s vendor search options almost every single day to check out vendors. I feel like I am familiar with every single wedding vendor within 90 miles of San Diego now.
I am the most excited to be getting married in California but there is definitely a bit of a gap in the vendor category because I do not know anyone who has gotten married there. With this said, the reviews on WeddingWire have been so helpful. I never really utilized reviews until I started planning my wedding and I discovered – they are key to ensure you are going to have a good experience.
One of the things I checked off this month was finding my wedding dress! I am in looooooove with it. I found the boutique I bought it at, Mia Bridal, on WeddingWire. When trying to figure out where to go look at dresses I was looking for reviews which said two things 1) they had the designer I had my eye on 2) people mentioned they had a good experience. Customer service can be so hit or miss these days, and I did not want this experience to be a “miss” sort of day.
We also booked our photographer, Brit of Brit Jones Photography, and our videographer, WhenItClicks, this month. Brit is a long time friend and incredibly talented, we are so excited to have her as a part of our day. I had seen videos from WhenItClicks over the years and when I was searching for videographers in California they came up — I knew it had to be a sign.
If anyone has any wedding planning advice, feel free to send it on over! Planning has been such a blast but a way bigger production than I ever anticipated. No one prepares you for this haha.
