The Wedding Venue

This one may be the most important of them all! The venue is where your wedding will take place, so you want to ensure that you love it. When choosing a wedding venue, be sure to consider the size of your guest list, the type of atmosphere you want and the location.

Wedding Guest Transportation

This is especially important if your ceremony and reception are in different locations. This doesn’t have to be a hard choice. You can book a shuttle bus or even rent a few vans to get everyone where they need to be or get creative when choosing wedding guest transportation. This is a great way to reduce stress on your wedding day and make sure that everyone gets where they need to be.


A videographer will capture your wedding day in a way that photos cannot. They will be able to capture the emotion and the movement of your big day. This is a great way to relive your wedding day over and over again.

Wedding Planner

A wedding planner can be a lifesaver when it comes to planning your big day. They will help you with everything from booking vendors to creating a timeline for the day. If you feel overwhelmed by the planning process, consider hiring a wedding planner!

Your Wedding Officiant

Now you will really want to research and find the perfect wedding officiant for you. Your officiant will be the one who actually officiates your wedding ceremony. This is an important role, as they will be responsible for ensuring that everything during the ceremony runs smoothly and according to plan. When choosing an officiant, be sure to find someone you are comfortable with and who shares your values.

A Caterer

Now, depending on where you are having your reception, you may not need to worry about a caterer.

A caterer can help make your wedding reception a success by providing delicious food and drinks for your guests.

A Baker/The Cake

No wedding is complete without a cake! A baker can create a beautiful and delicious cake for your wedding. Be sure to consult with them about any allergies or dietary restrictions that your guests may have.
