5 Tips for Planning Your Dream Wedding

Dani Moran Photography

So you’re planning a wedding! This is an extremely exciting time, but it can also feel overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start. With so many choices to make, such as venue, wedding date, and the many details that go along with making your wedding day magical, its good to have a plan for your planning.

Though SKY Armory is a Syracuse, NY wedding venue, we’re planners at heart. SKY Armory evolved from our former event planning business. We also pride ourselves on having a talented and experienced planner on our staff. So not only is the planning process super important to everything we do, we truly have seen it all when it comes to planning a wedding.

Here are some tips from us to you that will help make planning your dream wedding a whole lot less stressful!

1. Start Early and Stay Organized:

The key to a stress-free wedding planning experience is to start early and stay organized. A good place to start is creating a timeline outlining important milestones and deadlines, such as securing your venue or sending out invitations. 

If you choose to have your wedding with us here at SKY Armory, our event planner will help keep you on track too!

2. Define Your Vision and Prioritize Your Budget:

Before diving into the planning process, take some time to define your vision for the big day. Consider your personal style, preferences, and any must-have elements you envision. Once you have a clear vision in mind, prioritize your budget accordingly – focusing on the elements that are most important to you. 

At SKY Armory, one of the steps in our planning process is a vision meeting. During this meeting we’ll go over these broader details to get a better sense of how we can bring that vision to life with the little details later on!

3. Personalize Your Ceremony and Reception:

Once you’ve defined your vision – have fun with it! Take the time to focus on all of the fun details that will make your wedding personal to the two of you. From custom signage and monogrammed décor to signature cocktails and family heirlooms, there are countless ways to personalize your ceremony and reception – especially here at SKY Armory. Work with our wonderful event planner to incorporate those special elements that reflect your love story and personalities, creating a unique and memorable experience for you and your guests.

4. Focus on Guest Experience:

At SKY Armory, we value the importance of an amazing guest experience, and there are plenty of ways to ensure your loved ones feel welcomed throughout the celebration. Consider thoughtful details such as interactive guest book stations, comfortable lounge areas where guests can relax and mingle, or fun stations such as a cotton candy station or cigar bar. Planning these details are a fun part of the wedding planning process because it allows you to bring your loved ones into the planning. 

5. Enjoy the Journey:

Above all, make sure to enjoy yourselves! This is an exciting time in your love story that shouldn’t be filled with stress or worry. Remember to savor each moment of the journey and embrace the excitement of planning your dream wedding.
