You're getting married and you've chosen your location: beautiful Mendocino! Here are Mendocino Wedding Witch's best suggestions for getting hitched without a hitch...

1. Choose A Venue EARLY!!!

Mendocino is a very popular wedding destination and ceremony sites and reception venues get reserved quickly. If you don't book your preferred location 4 to 6 months in advance, you may find yourself scrambling for the less disirable venues.

2. Hire a Wedding Coordinator.

It may sound self-promoting but trust me, you will actually end up saving money if you hire a professional who knows the in and outs of the industry, has connections to local vendors, and has access to information and deals specific to the local community.

3. Create A Mission Statement or Vision Paragraph For Your Wedding Day.

This is a statement or paragraph that hones in on the main focus of how you want your day to unfold. Think of it as manifesting your dream. The more clearly you set your intention for your special day, the more powerfully your vision will transform in to reality. Share this information with your wedding coordinator, pertinent vendors, and family members.

4. Create A Budget.

Most couples underestimate their budget by as much as 40%. Creating a breakdown of how much you are willing to spend in specific areas and doing the footwork to see what vendors charge is essential to staying on track. This is where a good wedding coordinator can earn their fee in multiples! Your coordinator will have good idea of how much you will need to spend on catering, venues, music, etc... as well as offering you options in varying price ranges. Always expect to spend more than you planned for.

5. Expect The Unexpected.

Life always throws a curve ball, that you can count on. A rainstorm, a sick bridesmaid, a noise complaint from a neighbor, an overly drunk guest... all these things and more can add the final straw to an already stressful day. Remember what you are there for: To celebrate your love for one another and to rejoice with family and friends. Don't sweat the small stuff, delegate where possible, take deep breaths, and remember to focus on your blessings.
