It’s hard to believe that it’s already November. Fall is flying by, and before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us.
And everyone knows that after the holiday season, comes the wedding season.
That’s why if you’re planning a spring or summer wedding, the time to act is now. If you’ve just started to think about what your bridesmaids are going to wear for your May wedding, you need to buckle down and make some decisions.
Whether it’s your wedding dress, your bridesmaid dresses, or even your accessories, ordering now can be a huge help in the long run. For one thing, all of these items can take a long time to come in, and the holidays can make that ordering time even longer. Factories often shut down and production can sometimes stop for weeks at a time. That means there can be a huge difference between, say a bridesmaid dress ordered at the beginning of December, and one ordered at the end.
The same goes for bridal gowns. Not all months are created equal, and you’ll find that the ones at the beginning of the year fly by the fastest. In fact, around here, we think it’s just about May. That’s why we love brides who act early. Time is your friend, but having little of it just causes stress. Stress and brides is not a combination anyone wants.
Of course ordering before the holidays is also just plain fiscally responsible. It makes things easier on everyone’s budget. You know that feeling, right? When you start the year off practically broke from buying presents, going to parties and being festive? Wouldn’t it be nice to have already made your big wedding purchases before then?
Your bridal party feels the same way! So pick the dress and give your girls a hard pre-holiday deadline. That will ensure that no one is scrambling to get the funds together when the New Year rolls around.
Around here we spend a lot of time focused on the future, and it’s our job to keep every bride and bridal party on track. You might even say we’re a little obsessed with our timelines, but trust me, they can make things much easier.
So soak in this lovely fall weather, clear your mind in the crisp air, and then set your sights on May.
