Published 09/07/2021

You’ve begun to start making plans for the most special day of your lives but you don’t really know what to do and even where to start.  Let us offer some of our expert advice.  Arpeggio has over 30 years of experience at weddings and has seen just about everything!  Our advice is...

Do It Your Way!
Before you begin shopping for flowers, dresses, and venues, sit down with your significant other and talk about what makes your relationship special.  Are you super fun and just want a day for all of your friends and family to enjoy and remember?  Are you traditional and want a wedding full of memories and special moments?  Or maybe you’re somewhere in between?  Anything you want to do during your wedding day is okay.  Use your imagination and be creative.  Plan something special for just you two that you’ve always wanted to do.  You want the day to reflect the two of you, so make sure to sprinkle your personality into the day.  Which leads me to my second piece of advice…

Get Organized

Now, that doesn’t mean that you have to have every minute of your wedding and reception planned out.  Create an e-mail address just for your wedding contacts that both of you can access.  This will keep everything in one place and you’ll never have to search for your personal e-mail for hours just for the phone number of your wedding DJ.  Keep a wedding planner for your appointments and keep all the wedding papers and brochures in one binder.  Remember, your wedding and wedding reception will be the biggest events that you ever plan.  So make sure you…

Get Some Good Advice

And don’t be afraid to use it!  That advice can come from all kinds of different sources.  Whether it is your family, friends, wedding professionals like Arpeggio Wedding Entertainment, your venue contact, or even trusted online sources like Wedding Wire or The Knot.  There are no second chances on your wedding day.  Everything needs to go right the first time.  This is why wedding professionals must be good at what they do.  If someone is charging you a really low rate there is a good chance it is because they are inexperienced or don’t take the responsibility very seriously.  This is exactly why you should always…

Hire Professional Wedding Vendors

Now that does not mean that your friend that is a photographer or your aunt with a cake business is not a professional!  By all means, if you have friends and family that want to help you out and you trust them you should do it.  Keep in mind if you have friends and family working at your wedding they will be doing just that and will not be able to relax and enjoy the celebration of your marriage.  You need to …

Hire Wedding Professionals That You Like

If you meet a vendor and you think they might do a good job but your personalities clash, we don’t suggest working with them.  Working with a professional wedding vendor that you enjoy being around and has a similar personality to yours and your fiancés will probably think like you and will:  like music that you like.  What could be better than being surrounded by people that you like on your wedding day?  But remember the most important thing…

Have Fun!!

The guest will probably be late.  Your schedule will probably need some last-minute changes.  That’s okay because your wedding day is about the first day of the rest of your lives together.  Pack some comfy dancing shoes for the reception, hug everyone twice, dance with your family, laugh, eat, and cry.  Just don’t forget to let loose!!
