Secrets to Planning the Perfect Vintage Lesbian Wedding Wedding
When we say from start to finish, we mean it! Let’s begin with some basic planning tips and work our way down to the best food for your vintage lesbian wedding reception!
Timeline and Planning
The first thing you want to do is get yourself a nice planner to write everything down. Every thought, every idea, and of course, the general plan for the day. Even if you have a wacky idea that you don’t think you’ll ever be able to pull off, write it down! You just never know when the planets will align just right to make a wild dream come true.
Really, any type of planner works, but if you want to stick with the vintage theme all the way through, my favorite is this one from Etsy. It has a lot of wonderful suggestions, as well as 140 pages to fully plan your wedding without leaving anything out! And it can be personalized with your names!
The next step is to start working on the guest list. How many people are you going to invite? Who are they? Will they attend in person or are you hosting a virtual wedding? Make sure to choose a proper venue and menu, so you don’t leave anyone out.
In terms of timeline, you need to decide when the wedding will start, where it will happen, and basically organize the entire day.
There are so many amazing options for vintage wedding invitations out there that it can be challenging to choose just one. Don’t worry, I already narrowed down the list to just my top three favorites. Let’s take a look!
