THE WEDDING CHECKLIST

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!

This is an exciting time, and deserving of celebration. However, you do not want to let your head stay in the clouds for too long. After all, you have a wedding to plan! Are you ready? Then let’s get started!

x 79


O R GA N I Z E E V E RY T H I N G

While this may seem like something you can do later on, this is a very important step. ¨ Get a big and sturdy folder to stuff everything in. You’ll be putting all your research in here, like band choices and location ideas. You’ll also want to use this folder to keep receipts and other wedding related documents in here. You may use more than one folder, of course.

DAT E S Of course it is simple, but it is imperative. Get the dates set as soon as possible. ¨ Get the wedding date set. After all, this is the big day that everything else is revolving around. Consider the seasons. Do you want your wedding framed with green grass or white snow? Perhaps you would prefer the reds and oranges of autumn? ¨ Set a date for your rehearsal dinner. This should be no more than a week before the wedding itself, but preferably not the day before either. ¨ If you are having an engagement party, that should be set for a date not too far off from the engagement. Of course, you cannot just call everyone you know and tell them to come over that day after he proposed. Give your guests at least a month’s notice before expecting their presence at these events. ¨ Bachelor and bachelorette parties are usually planned by the best man and maid-of-honor respectively. This isn’t your job to plan this party. However, you should insure that your friends don’t plan the parties on dates that are inconvenient for you.

C O N S I D E R T H E C O O R D I N AT O R If you go down this list, and ask how on earth you are going to be able to do all of this, you may want to consider getting a wedding coordinator. ¨ Interview coordinators at your discretion. If you have family and friends that would love to help out, you may not need a professional coordinator after all. It really is up to you if you choose to do so, hire a coordinator.

MONEY MAKES THE WEDDING No matter who is paying, you need to work out a budget. ¨ WORK OUT A BUDGET FOR THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES... ¨ Location fees (for both the ceremony and the reception) ¨ Invitations ¨ Food and drink ¨ Clothing and Makeup (this includes the bride’s dress, make up, and accessories, as well as the groom’s tuxedo) ¨ Decor (decorations for both venues) ¨ Service fees (for the officiant, the caterers, the florist, the photographer, the band/DJ, etc) ¨ Wedding Rings ¨ Stationary (for invites and programs) ¨ Transportation and After-Wedding Lodging

K E E P YO U R G U E S T S U P T O DAT E Invitations and save-the-dates are pretty much crucial if you want people to come. Thankfully, there are other ways that people are keeping their guest list up to speed. ¨ Prepare the guest list. You want to decide who should come from your family and friends and his family and friends. ¨ Prepare the invitations and R.S.V.P. cards to send to each household you are inviting. ¨ A wedding website. You can make free websites and blogs from various places like Wordpress and Blogger. W E D D I N G S P OT L I G H T M AGA Z I N E by B R I D E S C L U B

DESIGNING THE DREAM All white? Something blue? Or a splash of everything? Design plays a huge role during the big day. ¨ Think colors. Do you want one or two? Maybe more? Whatever you choose, just make sure the colors do not clash. ¨ Think clothes. What style of dress do you want to wear? What kind of suit do you want him to wear? What do you want your bridesmaids to wear? What do you want the groomsmen to wear? These are very important details. ¨ You can get a lot of ideas from magazines and websites. Take clippings and printouts to put in your wedding folder.

YO U R W E D D I N G PA R T Y ¨ Start thinking about who you want in your wedding party. Start asking your girlfriends you would like as your bridesmaids if they want to be in the wedding. Have your groom start thinking about what guys he wants as his groomsmen. ¨ Decide upon and finalize all the formalwear. This includes the mens’ tuxedoes, the girls’ dresses and all accessories.

P L AC E YO U R O R D E R S After having envisioned what you want things to look like, it is time to get specific. ¨

Find ¨ ¨

specifics. Choose the stores and specific items. Then, buy them. Find and pick out your dress. ¨ Then order it. Find and pick out his tux.


¨ Then have him order it. ¨ Find and pick out your decorations. ¨ Then order them. ¨ Find and pick out your bridesmaids’ dresses. ¨ Then have them order them.

¨ Also find the services you want. ¨ Find a catering service you like. ¨ Then hire them. ¨ Find a photographer & videographer you like. ¨ Then hire them. ¨ Find a bakery you like for the cake. ¨ Then hire them. ¨ Don’t forget the stationary. ¨ Print out and mail your invitations if you haven’t done so already. ¨ Have the programs designed and printed.

T H E L E GA L S T U F F As much of a personal, emotional event this is, it is also a legal ceremony. ¨ Find an officiant. Whether you want a religious leader or just someone who had “the power vested in” them ¨ Take care of the legal documents. You will need to apply for a wedding certificate at your local city hall.

THE WEEK BEFORE All the effort is accumulating this week. ¨

Have the rehearsal dinner. Rehearse the ceremony as many times as it takes to get it right. Then treat your attendees to a small dinner. During the dinner, you may want to also practice the ceremony.

¨

Call ¨ ¨ ¨

¨ ¨

everyone to double-check things. Call the caterer. Call the photographer. Call the officiant. Call the florist. Call the band/DJ.

T H E DAY O F The time has come... ¨ Pay everyone whom you haven’t yet paid. ¨ Relax. ¨ Enjoy the day and all the beautiful memories that are sure to follow. ¨ Call the florist. ¨ Call the band/DJ.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Lou was amazing! Not only were the photos stunning but she was so personable and definitely made our day less stressful. Our families loved her, and she did a great job of engaging with everyone in the party and worked hard to remember everyone’s name. -Jessica

True Moments. Captured.

every wedding has unique spirit emotion & personality

trust your perfect day to a caring, intuitive, upbeat professional mary lou guinn | wedding portraiture specialist

Hiring a Photographer Now that you’ve set your wedding date and booked the venue, the next important step is to hire the perfect photographer. Since most established wedding photographers are booked out nine to twelve months you don’t want to put this one off. We sat down with Mary Lou Guinn from Point of View by Lou Photography to find out a few important tips for finding the photographer that suits you. What is one of the most important qualities that a couple should look for in a wedding photographer? A great personality! Seriously! It is so important that a bride and groom really like the photographer that is going to be so much a part of their big day. You want your day to be filled with nothing but happy memories so choose someone that you can relax and have fun with – while they take great pictures. What is one thing that most people overlook when hiring a photographer. Training. You definitely want your photographer to be up to date on all the latest techniques and methods. In addition to being a seasoned wedding professional your wedding photographer should stay current through industry training. Classes and workshops should be part of their yearly schedule because there is simply so much to know.

xvi xvi 79 79

What other advice would you give to a bride and groom when choosing a photographer? Trust yourself. Choosing a photographer is very personal. The photography style that you prefer is probably much different than your best friend or your aunt. So trust your own instincts and make your own decision. You’ll be much happier with your photos if you do.


What should the bride and groom consider when planning their budget for wedding photography? Think of your wedding photos as an heirloom investment – not an expense. Your enjoyment of your photos will just grow with time. These priceless photos captured at this once in a lifetime event will live on. They will be treasured by you and your family more and more with the passing of each anniversary. How did you become a wedding photographer? Coming from a large family, my life has always been filled with people, family and laughter. Early on I became ridiculously passionate about capturing real emotions and personality in my photos. I love learning, so I sought out training to become a classic portrait artist, but it really has taken years to fine tune my natural intuitiveness to capture the most authentic moments. It is the greatest thrill–and honor–to be trusted to preserve the memories from a families’ most important events.

About the Photographer Mary Lou Guinn is a portraiture specialist who is passionate about preserving the spirit, personality and emotion of the moments she captures. She is an award winning photographer who blends classic, contemporary and photo journalistic styles perfectly. She loves to garden, hang out with her girlfriends and watch her sons play football. She adores romantic comedies, her dogs and coffee.

Simple Elegance

N estled in the heart of Snohomish historic district, Antheia Ballroom sits, waiting to be filled with beautiful couples to come tie the knot. Originally built in the 1920s, Antheia Ballroom has gone through many transformations but has held on to its original charm. Completely renovated eight years ago, the Ballroom has recaptured its true essence as a richly romantic place to get married or renew your marriage vows.

Features of The Antheia Ballroom The Ballroom provides an intimate space for small to midsize weddings (capacity: 120 guests). With custom chandeliers, suites for both the bride and group, and covered gardens that can be enjoyed year round, you can create an event that will suite your vision no matter what date your heart is set on. Additionally the Schoolhouse, a building adjacent to the garden and Ballroom, can be utilized for your buffet, photo station, portraits, and more. Not only are the gardens lush and the ballroom breathtaking, but the building is also very functional. Antheia boasts a fully commercial kitchen for your caterer to cook or prepare your dinner. The massive refrigerator, two brand new ovens with 10 gas burners and hoods, commercial dish washer that finishes

in 90 seconds are only the tip of the iceberg! The only way to make this better is the catering policy: you can use any caterer or self-cater at no additional fee! Rounding out the features of the building is the fully stocked bar including glassware for all drink types, coffee service, and other amenities needs for beverage service at your event.

1

The Groom’s Suite: Most event venues don’t have a special place for the groom to get ready and

hang out with his guys. Filled with plenty of seating, sink, and 46 inch f lat screen T V, it is hard to convince them to get down to the ceremony. The suite also provides a place for young guests to rest during the late hours of the reception.

2

The Bridal Suite: Included in the Bridal Suite is ample seating, large three way mirror, three per-

son vanity for bridesmaids to prepare, private bathroom with shower, and private kitchen.

3

The Garden: When some people hear “Ballroom” they assume that it is exclusively an indoor venue,

but it only takes a moment to realize that Antheia Ballroom is much more than in indoor space. The gardens are designed to be lush year round, lit to be enjoyed at all times of days, and are totally covered to protect you and your guests from rain and sun.

4 5

Air Conditioning: The entire ballroom and Schoolhouse are fully air conditioned to bring relief to

your guests during the warm months of summer.

Flexibility: At most venues, couples are restricted from using areas like the kitchen, limited on

decorations, or must pick from a list of caterers. At Antheia Ballroom you have the freedom to create your wedding as you wish.

6

Rentals: Antheia Ballroom has a large inventory of linens, dishes, décor, and other rental items at

reasonable prices to help you bring your vision to life.
