WONDERING AND WANDERING

 

Wondering, Wandering, and Wedding

Vol. 3

We are gathered here today to talk about wedding in Williamson County.

 

As many of you have probably guessed, planning a wedding ceremony is no small and simple task.  In fact, on average people begin planning their nuptials a year or more in advance. So, clearly there is a lot of prep and planning that must take place before saying “I do”.

 

Typically,

the first decision the couple must make (besides deciding to marry one another) is the date and venue. These two decisions often coincide because of scheduling availability at the venues. It is important to consider the number of guests you intend to invite when deciding on a venue.

Venue choice should be a reflection of the couples taste and style. Williamson County offers a number of stunning, traditional indoor and outdoor venues; Celebrations Event Center, Dragonfly Wedding Venue, Starlight Lake, Walkers Bluff, and more! Additionally, intimate venues for rehearsals, receptions, showers and  ceremonies are offered throughout the area; Dotty Event Center, Irons in the Fire, Deliciously Ordinary, etc.  If the traditional route isn’t for you or you want a personalized setting, we do have a few unusual venue options; Mandala Gardens, Southern Illinois Raceway, Hartley Art Gallery, and Rent One Park!

 

The next step

in the process is choosing vendors. Vendors include the catering company, the bakery, the photographer, the florist and decorator, and the DJ or music service. Each of these elements combine to create the overall vibe of your celebration. Thankfully, all of these vendors can be found locally! With almost a dozen local floral and décor shops, half a dozen bakeries, and a myriad of local photographers, your big day can be both delicious and picture perfect. If you like coloring outside of the lines, try using a local food truck in lieu of formal catering or ask your baker about alternatives to the classic wedding cake.

Other important preparations and purchases, can also be made right here in Williamson County. Offering a large selection of  formalwear boutiques, jewelers, salons, and spas, you and your bridal party will be well taken care of from head to toe.  Local specialty shops are also a great place for bridal party gift purchases as well as unique event decorations.

With everything you need for a remarkable wedding available locally and conveniently, we invite you to fall in love with Williamson County for your big day.
