Top 3 Things You Should Book First for Your Wedding

Top 3 Things You Should Book First for Your Wedding

Planning a wedding is an exciting journey that can be filled with dreams, dedications, and decisions. To ensure your big day goes smoothly, here are a few key elements you should prioritize when starting your happily ever after planning. Booking these “essentials” early can save you stress and help create the perfect love story day.

Here are the top three things you should book first for your wedding.

  1. The Venue

The wedding and event venue sets the tone for your entire day, so it's critical to choose a location that resonates with your vision. Most event venues book out up to a year in advance! If you're seeking a charming and intimate setting with a touch of rustic elegance, look no further than SpringHaus Farm Wedding & Event Venue. Located just 15 miles outside of Athens, Georgia, SpringHaus Farm is set to open in the fall of 2024 and is currently accepting bookings.

This locally owned venue in Comer, GA offers a picturesque country backdrop with 20 acres of woods and pines, ideal for creating unforgettable memories on your special day.

Whether you envision an outdoor ceremony beneath a canopy of pine trees or a reception in a beautifully built, brand new barn,

SpringHaus Farm can accommodate your dreams. Booking your venue early ensures you secure your preferred date and gives you a foundation for planning all other aspects of your wedding. We open in the fall 2024 and are booking tours and weddings & events for 2024 & 2025 now!

2. The Photographer

Once you’ve secured your venue, the next step is to book a photographer who can capture the magic of your day. We have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing & talented photographers recently and some are often booked well in advance, sometimes over a year ahead, so it’s wise to start your search early. Look for a photographer whose style matches your vision, whether it's classic, candid, or artistic.

A wonderful locally owned photographer we had the pleasure of meeting was Kaleigh Jones.

She is located in Danielsville, GA and does beautiful work!

Meeting with potential photographers and reviewing their portfolios will help you find someone who not only understands your aesthetic but also makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Remember, these photos will be treasured keepsakes, so it’s worth investing the time to find the perfect photographer.

3. The Caterer

Food will be a central element during any event or celebration, and your special day should be no exception. Hiring a great caterer early ensures that you have access to the best food options that meet you and your guests needs and can tailor the menu to your preferences. Consider a locally owned caterer who uses fresh, local ingredients to provide a memorable hometown experience for your guests.

A great caterer we highly recommend is Crumbs & Yums Catering located in Comer, GA.

When selecting a caterer, think about the style of service you would like to enjoy—whether it’s a formal sit-down dinner, a buffet, or a selection of creative food stations, appetizers, cocktail hour or charcuterie, Crumbs & Yums is a wonderful group who makes everything we have tried to perfection. Scheduling tastings and discussing menu options in advance will help you find a caterer who aligns with your vision and can accommodate any dietary restrictions or special requests.

Why Should We Book Early?

Booking these three essentials—your venue, photographer, and caterer—early in your wedding planning can ensure you have the best options and allows you to build the rest of your celebration around these very important key elements. Early booking also provides peace of mind, reducing the stress of last-minute arrangements and helping you stay organized as you approach your big day.

For couples in Georgia, SpringHaus Farm Wedding & Event Venue offers a unique and enchanting location that is sure to make your wedding day truly special. As you embark on your wedding planning journey, prioritize these bookings to set the stage for a beautiful and memorable celebration.
