Hello Farmers and Brides!
One of our barn brides (June, 2015) lives in Colorado and is putting together a wedding with a two-hundred and thirty person guest list. Because many of the invitees are from out of state, she anticipates 150-160 people coming. (As an FYI, 150 guests is a Milagro Farms wedding size average.)
Here’s what Mesa Westlake had to share about planning a long-distance wedding:
Wedding planning is hard. In one instant you are thrust from being a student, nurse, teacher, or whatever it is that you are titled, to a professional event planner. And the stakes are high. One false move and your friends will forever remember you as the girl with the crappy wedding or worse, your most memorable day will be not remembered by others. If you throw a few hundred miles between you and your wedding location, things can become even more challenging. My friends (as well as my own long-distance wedding planning experience) have helped me develop three tricks to make coordinating a distance or destination wedding a little more bearable (if not down-right enjoyable).
