Key Tips for Planning Your Big Day

Planning a wedding can be a little overwhelming for some brides. Here at The Historic Pinecrest, we want to help make the planning process as easy as possible! One of the first steps in the planning process is to choose a venue. Our beautiful wedding venue near Colorado Springs offers the ideal backdrop for your wedding day. If you've already booked your big day with us, take a look at the tips provided below to make your wedding planning experience a little less hectic!

Estimate Guest Count

Before you can even book a venue, it's important to get a good idea of the number of guests you plan to invite. This number can actually help you narrow down which wedding venue is going to work for your big day. While there is no guarantee, about 30% of the guests you invite will not be able to make it to help you celebrate.

Create a Wedding Binder

A notebook or binder filled with everything wedding can help keep all of your plans and ideas in one place. From to-do lists to service provider contracts, it's important to have all of this documentation handy, for planning your big day.

Book Blackout Dates Early

If you plan to get married on a highly sought after date, book your wedding as far out as possible. This can help you ensure you get the venue and service providers you wish for. It's important to get your major wedding providers lined out, to ensure they are available for your date.

Block Off Hotel Rooms

As soon as you set your wedding date and get a venue locked down, try to reserve a block of hotel rooms at a nearby hotel. This can help give your out-of-town guests a good idea of where to stay, especially if they are not familiar with the area. Try to keep price in mind when blocking off rooms - take the budget of your wedding guests into consideration, when selecting a hotel.

Allow Time to Set Up

Plan ahead for set-up time prior to your wedding. Whether it's the day before or the morning of your big day, make sure you have plenty of help to decorate your wedding ceremony and reception space for your big day!

Enlist the Troops

Be sure you have plenty of friends and family members on hand to help with your entire wedding process. Whether your bridesmaids want to help create decorations for your big day or your family members want to help you decorate and set up at your wedding venue, ensure you have plenty of hands on deck to allow your wedding to go off without a hitch!

Now that you know all these ways to make the process of planning a wedding a bit easier, you're ready to get started! When you book your wedding with The Historic Pinecrest, you can rest assured that our venue will provide a breathtaking backdrop for your ceremony, reception, and everything in between. We look forward to helping you make your big day just how you've always imagined!
