Step 1: Choose a location
One of the first things you’ll need to do when planning a lake wedding is to decide where you want your ceremony and reception to be. There are many beautiful lakeside venues to choose from, so take some time to research what each location has to offer.
Consider things like the size of the venue, whether or not they have indoor and outdoor spaces available, what kind of amenities they offer, and their overall style. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, schedule visits to each venue so that you can get a feel for the space and see if it’s a good fit for your wedding.
Step 2: Choose a time and date
It sounds pretty simple – but you should always consider what time of both the day and year you want your wedding. You could choose a warm summer evening or a cool autumn day, it really all depends on what you and your significant other want.
Step 3: Start working with event planners
Now that you’ve got the location and times figured out, it’s time to start working with event planners. This is an important step in the process because they will be able to help you figure out all of the details of your wedding, from the food and drink menu to the music and decorations. If you’d like an even easier time, pick a venue or event planner that will handle most of the work – this makes things easier on you and allows some relaxation before the big day.
Event planners are a great resource for making sure that your lake wedding goes off without a hitch, so be sure to consult with them as you begin planning your big day!
And as we said earlier in this post, we at Coeur d’Alene Cruises are there to plan and assist you throughout every part of your wedding. Feel free to reach out to us at (208) 292-5670 to start planning now!
Step 4: Start working on invites
Now that you’ve got the location and date set, it’s time to start working on your invitations. Your invitations should be sent out about six to eight weeks before your wedding, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get them made.
There are many different ways to create beautiful invitations, so take some time to look through some examples online or in magazines. Once you’ve found a style you like, work with a graphic designer or printer to get them made. And don’t forget to include all of the important details like the date, time, and address of your wedding!
Step 5: Relax and start getting ready for the big day(s)
We know it is much easier said than done – but it’s time to start relaxing. You picked a great venue and business that is handling the planning for you, so you can get ready for the big day and guide the planners along the way without much more work.
