Hudson Valley wedding basics

When you first start planning your Hudson Valley wedding, the process can seem overwhelming. Start out by creating a definitive style and color scheme, and let this guide your wedding decisions. But don't feel like you need to make every decision at once -- just take it one element at a time. When you start envisioning your perfect wedding day, start out with the big picture.

First, when do you want your wedding to take place? Whether you love the spring or just can't get enough of the fall, your wedding season and month will determine virtually every decision you make next. Once you have a date, it's time to think about where you want to have your wedding ceremony and reception. If you have a favorite museum or park for weddings in Hudson Valley, contact them as soon as possible to see if your desired date is available.

Next, consider the formality of your wedding. Are you looking to throw a black tie soiree or a laid-back barbecue? Something in between? The decor of your event will go a long way in dictating the atmosphere of the party. For a formal wedding reception, talk to your florist about creating tall, dramatic centerpieces and book a venue with dramatic lighting or views. For more casual affairs, ask your Hudson Valley wedding florist about creating simple arrangements with lots of greenery, or string handmade paper garlands around the dance floor.

Another aspect that affects the decor of your wedding is your color scheme. Incorporate a favorite color, or turn to our galleries of other Hudson Valley weddings for inspiration. You might also consider hiring a wedding planner to help you define your style. You should also be sure to keep your budget in the forefront of your mind when making any and all decisions. You don't want to fall in love with a look you can't afford! A solid plan will help you stay on track and get a wedding that represents who you and your fiance are as a couple.
