We’ve noticed a trend recently with our couples planning shorter engagements. We could not be happier! While there are always pros and cons of both the longer engagement and shorter, we’re here to help you through the planning process no matter what you choose. Everyone knows that planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming. Some brides live for this phase of their engagement, while others may dread the very thought of it. Planning the wedding of your dreams in a few short weeks is not only possible; it can be enjoyable as well. We’re here to offer you some tips to help make it an easy and enjoyable process.
CHOOSE YOUR VENUE WISELY
When choosing your venue, there are a few key points you should keep in mind. This is especially true if you have a shorter engagement.
Choose a venue with inclusive services to save time sourcing additional vendors. For example, The Colonnade at Revolution Mill offers not only a gorgeous space, but also offers chairs, linens, rentals and food & beverage service by Pepper Moon Catering — all in one effort. It’s also helpful to choose a venue that offers vendor recommendations.
Make sure to check the reviews of a venue before you book. Mistakes can be made if you book a venue too hastily. Reading the reviews of past couples can be a great way to get a feel for the venue.
"What an awesome experience we had at Revolution Mill Events for our daughter and now son-in-laws wedding. From the first day we met with Jaime we knew this was a perfect place to host this wedding that our daughter had always dreamed of. The venue, the staff and Pepper Moon Catering was right on point on every little detail. We are still hearing great things from the guests about the entire evening. The food prepared by Pepper Moon was a HUGE hit. Thank you again Jaime, Revolution Mills, Pepper Moon Catering and the entire staff!!!!"

ASK FOR HELP
There is no shame in asking for help. Your friends and family are there for you and are excited about your upcoming nuptials as well! Let them give you a hand.
BE REALISTIC IN YOUR PLANNING
Yes, you can plan a stunning wedding in a short time, but it’s also important to be realistic in knowing you may not be planning an event equal to The Royal Wedding. There is something beautiful and even elegant about simplicity. Use that knowledge while mapping out your wedding day details.
INVITE YOUR GUESTS
While nothing beats a gorgeous invitation suite, Evites are a great option to efficiently invite your friends and family to your wedding in a time crunch! Evites are easily customizable to your wedding theme and are quick, easy and delivered directly to your guests’ inboxes. You’ll receive responses faster and email is a great way to get in touch with people.
Will you need to decorate your venue a lot or a little? Is the space stunning by itself? Adding small touches to spruce the space up just enough to show your personality and style is what you want when planning a wedding in a short time.
With extensive experience in planning and executing Triad weddings, Revolution Mill Events is uniquely equipped to help you express your wedding vision. Whether you envision a celebration that is traditional or trend-setting, have a short or a long engagement, we will work closely together to create a wedding day that reflects your personalities and delights your guests.
