As a rustic wedding venue near Houston Texas, people are always inquiring about what they need to know when getting everything prepared for their wedding day.
In response to this we have decided to put together a basic list of all the information that every wedding stylist is going to need to know about your chic rustic wedding plans.
Of course, this list does not have everything that you will need to know, and some of the questions only you can answer, like what rustic wedding venue near Houston Texas you will be having your wedding at. But it is a good basic guide of info that you will be needing to to have. Hopefully having this information readily available before hand will help to make the process of setting up a wedding just a little bit easier.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
1. When is your wedding date?
Obviously this is one of the first question that anyone working on your wedding is going to need the answer to in order to make sure that they are available on the date as well as any vendors and rustic wedding venues near Houston Texas you will be booking.
Many wedding services and venues can be booked a long way out in advance, so it is important to first work out all of the scheduling details before getting too deep in the rest of the process like choosing which rustic wedding venue you will be hosting your wedding at.
2. At what rustic wedding venue will your wedding take place?
The next most important thing that any wedding coordinator will need to know is where you will be hosing your wedding and reception. Of course, we hope that you will be hosting your wedding with us at Pine Lake Ranch. We are a 5 star rated rustic wedding venue near Houston Texas. However, no matter where you plan on having your wedding and reception, it is important to have these details worked out well in advance and to inform your wedding planner as soon as possible which wedding venue you will be choosing.
Make sure that you send over a clear way of communicating the wedding venue that you would like to have your rustic wedding and reception at, as there can be very similar named event venues.
If the venue is local to Houston Texas, then you may be in luck if you are working with a wedding planner, as they very well may have worked with the wedding venue in the past.
3. Who is the wedding coordinator at the venue?
Some wedding venue's have their own wedding coordinators that you, or your stylist will be working with in order to help you to arrange your rustic wedding near Houston.
It will be very helpful if your wedding stylist knows who your coordinator from the venue is before he or she tries to contact the venue to begin making arrangements for decorations, and vendors, and everything else. This way the two can coordinate their skills more seamlessly.
4. Can you have a meeting at your wedding venue?
Your wedding stylist or coordinator may be very familiar with the rustic wedding venue that you have chosen near Houston Texas, but regardless, he or she will benefit by meeting with the owners or coordinator, or some kind of representative of the wedding and reception venue prior to making all of the other wedding arrangements.
When meeting up at the rustic wedding venue, take note of all of the areas that are provided. For example, at Pine Lake Ranch, we have over 26 acres of land for you to style and utilize for your chic rustic style Texas wedding. From a true rustic barn and a centuries old live oak tree, to a Ranch House, private fishing lake, and open aired corral, there are limitless options at Pine Lake Ranch for you to utilize and enjoy while designing your rustic wedding.
5. What is your wedding's color scheme?
A wedding planners job is to create a beautiful wedding for you to enjoy. One of the first thing that you and your planner should discuss is what color you would like for your wedding.
Don't worry if you do not know what scheme you want to go with before you meet up with your stylist. They will be happy to meet up with you and discuss and show you all of your options. And once you and them meet up at the rustic wedding venue that you want to have your event at, this may help you even more to choose your color scheme and see what it will actually look like.
6. Are the meals seated?
Before figuring out the details of your seating for the reception, your wedding stylist will wish to make sure that your reception will be having a seated meal. If you are having your rustic wedding at the Pine Lake Ranch venue, near Houston Texas, then we would absolutely recommend that you do have a seated meal as we have a beautiful rustic barn that is perfect for having large seating arrangements for all of your guests.
7. How many people will you be seating for the wedding and the reception?
Your wedding stylist will be needing to know how many people you are going to have seated at both your wedding ceremony, as well as the reception. For the reception, they will want to know specifically how many people will be at the seated meal that you have in the rustic barn for you wedding reception. This way they can have a basic idea, or start to formulate ideas on how they will be arranging everything as well as start coordinating with your food vendors on portions and amounts of food.
8. What size and shape are your tables?
The size and shape of the tables that you will be using for your wedding reception will have a direct impact on how they will be set out in the true rustic barn.
This information is also needed for fitting the tables with runners and table cloths, napkins, and other decorations for the wedding venue near Houston Texas that will fit in with you color scheme that you have picked out.
