[PLANNING] Time management and problem solving when planning your Breckenridge, Colorado wedding.


You've found this blog probably because you are searching for someone to help you plan your wedding or provide a particular service.  We understand that while wedding planning can be very fun, interesting, and entertaining, it is literally a second job.  So, one of the first things you need to do is to determine how much time you can realistically devote to figuring out all the details and following up with all the vendors.  Quickly, time management becomes a priority.

Did you know that wedding planning averages 250 hours while the typical engagement is 16 months long?  In my opinion, that's enough time to overthink and rush things that aren't necessarily that important at that moment. Certain things need to be figured out first, while others can wait.  We'll introduce a few sources for handy checklists and timelines very soon!

All of these new projects take time and energy, but are a lot of fun to research.   But, don't get stuck on one look, color or style of decor.  Your first idea probably won't be the one you'll stick with in the end, so go with the flow and enjoy the creative process because tomorrow you might find something else that will take you in a whole different direction.

There is also the budget that cannot be ignored.  We suggest having a rough idea of what you'd like to spend, but have a minimum and maximum to guide you along and to have some room for flexibility.  This allows for creative ways to stretch and maximize your dollars.

The real trick is making time for it all.  There are many resources, also literally at your fingertips, these days, and this is only one of them, but what makes this site different is that it's the only online resource dedicated to helping families, planners and vendors connect to plan weddings and special events in Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone and Silverthorne, Colorado.

After buying flowers from countless distributors over the years, we have sourced not only the best flowers, but now know who the best vendors are for our local area that are able to complete the dream team you're looking for.  So, when it comes to your wedding, start to think about what time you have, what priorities you have, and who's going to help you with things get hectic. Half the fun is the imagining all the different possibilities that you could have for your wedding.  You've got the mountains already in mind, and Summit County is a world class year-round destination that is undeniably beautiful, family-friendly and filled with all sorts of activities for all kids of all ages.

We'll be exploring all the different venues, vendors and local attractions that are perfect for weddings, special events, vow renewals and elopements in the Rockies.  This last photo shows the kids at our wedding reception at the Carter Park Pavilion.  We knew we wanted our wedding to be (1) in the mountains and have (2) a lake experience with (3) lots of kids while (4) the family band played.  Those elements were important to us.  What's important to you?
