Upstate New York Wedding Planners & Wedding Coordinators
April 1, 2014

Every wedding planner in NYC knows that as soon as you are engaged, chances are you are already planning, even if you don’t mean to. The internet is there ALL the time and once you just “glance” at a wedding website or make a Pinterest board “just for fun” it becomes a black hole of bliss. And not to mention EVERYONE will ask where and when you’re planning on having your wedding the very second you tell them you are engaged, so you are going to feel like you must start NOW. Overwhelming? Absolutely. Trust us. What we here at Save The Date® pride ourselves on is being a team where everyone at the company has experience being a wedding planner in NYC. We know the venues. We know what needs to get done when. And we know how to plan a wedding on a budget, even in an uber-expensive city like New York. We promise we are not the type of wedding planner often found in NYC that drives a forceful opinion at you. Our wedding planners work directly with you to bring your dream day to life.
So you ask your friendly Save The Date® wedding planner – “what do I do first?”
Think in this order: HAVE to and then WANT to. Every wedding planner in NYC knows that it is all about logistics first: money, time, locations. Once you or your wedding planner has that covered, then comes all of the fun stuff: flowers, colors, dresses for yourself and your bridesmaids. It’s that old truism that you have to do the hard stuff first or else you won’t be able to enjoy the fun stuff, and at the end of the day your wedding should always be more fun than stressful. A NYC wedding planner should be the one to help you fully realize what you want your wedding to look like and should be the one to find everything you want. A good wedding planner in NYC also knows how to prioritize your tasks and to do’s to make everything run smoothly. We should be the ones on the ground, scoping out venues, finding a florist, and helping you maintain your budget. At Save The Date® we know all the best wedding venues and vendors to make the planning process a breeze. We know you have a lot on your plate and that this should be one of the happiest days of your life, not one that drives you past your breaking point.

So the official NYC wedding planner advice is as follows: figure out your invite list and how much you have to spend before you do anything else. Trust me. Lower anxiety levels promised. Leave the rest to your professional, top of the line NYC wedding planner.
Happy Planning,
The Save The Date® Team
