Step 2: Planning The Day For Your Glacial Till Vineyard Wedding

When you’re planning your Glacial Till Vineyard wedding, there are so many things to consider. But, first, you’ve got to visit Glacial Till, see what you’re working with, and start planning and prepping. 

#1 – Guest List

Now that you know the venue and you’ve seen what it can hold, it’s time to start planning the guest list! You want to do this step with your partner to ensure that everyone you want at the wedding is invited. Start with the obvious friends and family, and then move on to people that might not be as obvious.

A great tip is to go through your Facebook friends to see if anyone’s name pops up that you might have forgotten. 

#2 – Floor Plan

Now that you’ve nailed down that guest list, it’s time to figure out where everyone’s going to sit. Start considering your options and what you’ll need from the venue to pull off the best seating plan possible. By now, you should have sent out invitations. So you’ll be able to start solidifying your vision.

This is also time to consider how you want your day to look. Where do you want to hold the ceremony? Cocktails? Dinner? How do you want the day to flow? You can talk all this through with the venue manager and your wedding planner. 

#3 – Theme

This should have been at least considered long before the guest list or floor plan, but you have to know what kind of theme you’re attempting. Is the wedding modern? Is it a fairytale theme? Is it bohemian? These questions matter because they determine a lot of things like decor, food choices, etc. 

#4 – Decor

Knowing your theme means you’re able to start getting decor for the special event. You want to ensure you’ve planned everything out and source it throughout the time between the decision and the big day.
