Tips for a wedding day rain plan!

 

 

Hi everyone! Today we're talking all about tips for rain plans and how to make sure to save your wedding day if it happens to rain. First and foremost, always plan for rain! That way, you can always be prepared no matter the circumstances. Instead of just hoping that it doesn't rain on your wedding day, act like it's going to and make sure that you are completely comfortable with the plan if it does. 

First, you want to make sure that your venue has a rain plan option. If they don't, that might not be the best venue to choose. It's possible to get a tent that can help cover your guests, but this is definitely going to be an added cost. There are some rental companies (here in Tennessee) that will allow you to do a deposit on a tent. They actually call it a rain plan tent and you let them know 48 hours in advance if they should deliver the tent or not. You're going to lose your deposit if you don't have the tent arrive, but you don't have to pay for the rest if you don't...

Wedding Clean Up Tips

 

 Wedding Clean Up Tips

Today, on The Bride Link, we're talking all about wedding clean up. With all great events comes the inevitable clean up! There are few things more consistent in life! Cleaning up after your wedding can take much longer than most couples expect. Venues usually require the removal of all items either that night or the next day. Wedding day clean up is essential as the venue may have another wedding scheduled right after yours. If that's the case, cleaning up right after your wedding may be the only option. The venue's concern is the next paying client after your wedding has been completed. You risk losing some or all of your deposit if clean up isn't completed to the specifications of the venue. If you've left anything sentimental behind or items you hope to keep, make sure you have plans for clean-up long before your wedding gets started! Grab your FREE copy of your Clean Up Fact Sheet to help get you ready!
