Going to the Chaplain WEDDINGS WITH STYLE AND GRACE

“As an ordained chaplain and married woman of 35 years, my desire is to help every couple not only with the ceremony, but in their journey during the months before they get to the altar, guiding them to build an emotional and spiritual foundation for a lifetime.” -Tara Dorroh

THE ULTIMATE WAY

to Plan Your Wedding! Woodlands Bride Interactive, 360° Virtual Venue Tours

Planning a wedding is no small task. It can be very stressful and we know your time is precious. The first and most important step is to choose a venue and Woodlands Bride has completely revolutionized the way you can tour local venues. Say goodbye to driving countless miles and spending your weekends touring venues and visiting open houses, only to find the best weekends have already booked. With our tours, you can 14

virtually tour the venues from the comfort of your home. Narrow down your choices so you only visit your favorites in person. Our tours are a helpful tool not only for booking your venue but also for planning the rest of the details.

Choosing Your Venue Once you say “Yes!” and start sporting your new bling the clock starts ticking on booking your venue. The best venues book up quickly - sometimes up to a


year in advance! If you want to land your dream venue on your favorite date, it’s critical to do your research quickly and book your venue as soon as possible. Another reason you need to book your venue ASAP is because so many of your other wedding decisions hinge on your venue. Your theme, guest count, vendors, and budget are just a few of the decisions that are influenced by your venue. Our virtual venue tours will give you a 360 degree view of the venue and details about its accommodations. You can view each room or area from floor to ceiling, click information icons to

learn important details, navigate the floor plan of the venue, view image and video galleries, and so much more!

Planning Your Wedding You will love the freedom our venue tours give you to “pop in” and see the venue anytime. Family and friends that live thousands of miles away will be able to envision your plans and give meaningful feedback as if they were right there with you. You can also use the tours at meetings with your wedding vendors to collaborate on specific layouts and placements of every detail of your wedding as if you were at the venue!
