Black Friday? Try White Friday for Hudson Valley Wedding Planning!

Whether you’re already engaged or thinking of getting engaged over the Holiday season, the weekend after Thanksgiving is more than just a great time to shop–it’s also a great time to do some wedding planning.  Why now?  Besides the fact that you may have a bit additional time off of work, there are two reasons why late November is a great time to dive into your planning process for your Hudson Valley wedding.

#1. Let’s Get Together!

Many of your friends and family may also have some time off of work this weekend.  Now’s a chance to get together, talk, share, or even go out looking for the vendors, products, and services you will need for your Hudson Valley wedding.  You know that everyone in your life has an opinion on your upcoming wedding.  Take this opportunity to ask friends and family to help you with your wedding planning process, before everyone gets overly busy with their Holiday plans.

#2. Buy Now!

January and February are traditionally packed with winter Hudson Valley bridal shows.  In the Hudson Valley, there will be over a dozen bridal expos in these two months.  However, as the owner of Spinning with Style, a wedding DJ service in the Hudson Valley, I, DJ Bri Swatek, can tell you firsthand that more often than not, by February, key dates on that same year’s schedule for wedding vendors are already filled.  Many Hudson Valley wedding vendors actually set up booths at these winter Hudson Valley bridal shows and expos looking to book weddings for the following year, as that current new year is already almost completely booked.  Your wedding date is like a piece of real estate.  Just like a house, you’re building something incredibly special on that particular day on the calendar–a once in a lifetime event for your family and friends.  Many professional Hudson Valley wedding vendors can (or choose to) only work at one wedding per day, and by mid-Winter, your date could already be booked.  Consider signing contracts and paying retainers now–especially with your Hudson Valley wedding venue–before you miss out on that great service or vendor you had your eye on.

Where to begin?

An Internet search for Hudson Valley wedding venues, products, services, and other vendors can be more than a little overwhelming.  There are tons of Hudson Valley wedding vendors out there, and the level of quality and professionalism varies widely.  As the owner of Spinning with Style, I, DJ Bri Swatek, would recommend that you combine all those great referrals that you have (and will get) from your family and friends with some of the great services highlighted on this blog.  On Your Unique Hudson Valley Wedding, you will find links to lots of great

– Caterers,
– Florists,
– Photo Booth Vendors,
– Photographers,
– Wedding Planners,
– Limos and Transportation,
– Wedding Venues, and
– Videographers,
– and more!

Each one of these Hudson Valley wedding vendors is a high quality wedding professional that I have worked with on numerous occasions and I can personally recommend as someone who wants nothing but the best for their brides and grooms on your wedding day!

Congratulations,

Bri

How to Plan Your Hudson Valley Wedding in Little or No Time at All!

Thanks to the folks at Bridal Guide for posting this great article about planning a wedding in just a few short months:

Bridal Guide:  Planning Your Wedding In Three Months Or Less
http://www.bridalguide.com/wedding-planning/article.cfm?aID=278

As the owner of DJ Bri Swatek, Spinning with Style, many of the brides and grooms I have met at recent Hudson Valley Bridal shows have mentioned to me that they are looking at some of the great incentives offered by Hudson Valley wedding venues and vendors for in-year weddings.  Many Hudson Valley wedding professionals still have great dates available this year. 

Just because you might be thinking of getting engaged and get married in the same year doesn’t mean you can’t have the wedding of your dreams!  The keys are to stay organized (using a timeline or schedule like the one in Bridal Guide article above) and to hire true Hudson Valley wedding professionals who can make your dreams a reality. 

Congratulations,

Bri

As a professional Hudson Valley wedding vendor running DJ Bri Swatek, Spinning with Style, I couldn’t agree more with the tone questions:  it’s your big day, so personalize your music, announcements, and events as much as you can!  I would add that having organized, detailed contracts and planning paperwork your DJ and all of our wedding vendors is important as well.  If the plan is written down and easy to understand, all of your wedding professionals can work together to create an experience that is just as unique as you and your fiancee!

Congratulations,

Bri
