While most couples begin planning a Fall wedding well in advance, others wait until it's too close to their wedding date to start looking for their wedding vendors (of course, in my opinion, choosing an officiant is an important decision that should be one of the first things on their list!) -- by then, for the most part, the vendors that they'd really like to work with are booked, and they're left with limited choices.
Rich and Andrea, pictured above and below, married at the Mission Inn last October. They planned their entire wedding from Pennsylvania -- no easy task, but because they began their groundwork well in advance, they were able to choose from a great variety of wedding pros to insure that their wedding day was well-planned, joyful and flawless!
My advice for today? Start to plan and book your wedding professionals as far in advance as possible. If you snooze, you may lose!
