When it comes to reserving your Wedding Venue and Wedding Officiant, it's good to remember that wedding dates are always offered on a first come first serve basis only.
With that in mind it's a very good idea to go ahead and begin reviewing and selecting your marriage ceremony options once you have you wedding date nailed down.
The key to planning with ease begins with securing a Wedding Venue and your Marriage Ceremony Officiant straight away no question about it. Why start with these first?
Common sense really. After all, how could you possibly have a wedding without either one? All the rest are just delicious details and will fall quickly into place as you proceed forward with you wedding arrangements once your venue and ceremony arrangements in place and secured.
Kansas Bride's are eager to reserve their wedding dates for 2013 and even 2014 right now. The Savvy Kansas Brides know that waiting until the last minute to secure her wedding ceremony plans is risky business at best. To give you an idea as to how much Bride competition there is out there, it's not uncommon to get as many as 30 and more requests for the same dates. Especially during the peak wedding months.
Unfortunately, some Bride's make the unfortunate mistake of getting so involved with all the other aspects of planning the wedding, that she forgets entirely about securing of her Venue and Ceremony Arrangements until the very last minute.

Wedding Wisdom for the Wichita Kansas Bride
Here's a little Wedding Wisdom concerning the timing of reserving the wedding venue and your
When visiting with our wedding couples here's a question I encounter most often.
Q: We want you to perform our ceremony...but, we haven't secured our wedding venue yet. What should we do first, reserve the officiant or the wedding venue?
A: If you have found the officiant you want but you haven't yet secured the venue, the best approach is to communicate with your chosen officiant and let him/her know what your venue status is.
Ask your Wedding Minister for venue suggestions.
In the mean time apply for your marriage license.
Your Wedding Minister is already well acquainted with all of the local wedding venues in your area, use this to your advantage.
In fact, by asking your chosen wedding officiant for venue suggestions you can save yourself loads of time, and in some cases money, as your wedding officiant likely knows which venues are offering the best prices.
Also, once you visit with your chosen wedding officiant about the type of wedding you are envisioning, he/she will be able to suggest a venue/s that best fits your wedding style and budget.
This can alleviate a lot of undue stress on your part.
So, all in all, finding the wedding officiant you are most comfortable with and let them guide you in locating a venue.
You'll be very glad you did. For more insights and wedding wisdom, see our blogs.
