Future brides and grooms don’t always realize just how much time they will have to devote to organizing their wedding.
From the moment your engagement is announced, many hours will be spent making innumerable decisions and countless appointments. But don’t worry: you can save an amazing amount of time by dealing with local businesses.
Why not combine practicality with pleasure by focusing locally when preparing your wedding. Everyone would agree that organizing a wedding isn’t an easy thing to do, and so it can be very reassuring to be able to count on people that you’ve known all of your life, or almost, to make a success of this important event.
Just think for a moment about all the steps involved: choosing the location of the wedding and reception, shopping for wedding bands, the gown, selecting a photographer, making up the guest list, having invitations and thank-you cards printed, planning the menu, decorating the reception hall, finding a DJ, selecting a cake, ordering flowers and favours. The list is long and the job, huge.
By choosing to buy local, not only will you avoid wasting a great deal of time driving long distances but you will also have the pleasure of involving people in your community, those who are a part of your neighbourhood and local economy. Your florist, caterer, jeweller, and all those other business people will be eager partners in making your wedding the best party of your life.
