If you can, I’d REALLY like to be your friend! Let’s face it - weather in the Pacific Northwest is very quick to change and keeps you on your toes. We don’t ever quite know what we’re going to get. If you are someone whose entire wedding will be ruined by rain, wind, a low flying airplane, a train’s whistle, a flyby of honking geese, cold temperatures, or a myriad of other outdoor occurrences then an outdoor ceremony or reception isn’t a good choice for you. If you can roll with the punches and understand that no one can control the weather or completely control an outdoor environment (and consequently none of your vendors are to blame if it’s raining, too hot, a car horn honks, etc.) then considering an outdoor event or portion of your event can be a great option.
Get your Groom Involved in the Wedding Planning!
This Sunday, January 15th is the Skamania Lodge Bridal Open House. If he's like most guys, the last thing he wants to do is go to some Bridal show. But ours is different and YES, there really will be other guys there! He can belly up to the bar and sip on a Northwest Micro Brew (important research for the big day!), while you talk to the florist, photographers, and check out the decor.
Next up, FOOD tasting! What guy doesn't love that? You two can get a taste of all the options the Lodge has to offer and decide on your menu together!
How much work do you want to do on your wedding day?
Did you know that the average wedding takes 200-300 hours to plan? And there are a minimum of 30 “hiccups” that occur at every wedding? Hiring a professional wedding coordinator will save money, save time, and save your sanity.
