First and most importantly, celebrating love has rarely felt more important! Second, experienced and enthusiastic vendors here in our Asheville community, and elsewhere, are more eager than ever to get back to planning the day of your dreams. And next, your family and loved ones cannot wait to have something beautiful to celebrate and there is time available to plan and fine tune the details of your big day.
A World- Wide Pandemic and Shifting Priorities
Yes, a world- wide pandemic has a way of shifting priorities. Take the time you have now to solidify your wedding vision. Are you dreaming of something simpler or more intimate than originally planned? Would you like to add a significant way to honor your relatives? Is there a signature cocktail that now speaks to you a little louder? No need to change everything, and maybe not anything, but keep dreaming of that perfect day and find joy in firming up details.
Maybe You’ve Waited Long Enough
Maybe it is not the details that fill your head, but the timeline. You are ready to be married! Email your vendors now and let them know you are ready to go as soon as guidelines recommend it is safe to gather and celebrate. Pick vendors that can fulfill more than one of your needs.
