Door County Bride-To-Be ~ Planning from a Distance
August 29th, 2012 by Dawn - 0 Comments - Leave a Comment
As many Door County brides have done and will continue to do, I have been planning our wedding from a distance (just shy of 200 miles). I was fairly intimidated when I first started the planning process, because I did not know the area or the vendors. In my hometown I could come up with a list of vendors I would use for cake, reception, DJ and so on without research, but outside of this area I was lost. Looking back now the planning process and selecting vendors has lead to a fun adventure of trying new things and going to new places.
One of the key things that I have done throughout the planning process is make every trip to Door County count. Each time in the last year, we have made our way to Door County the trips were full of meeting with vendors and trying new things in the area that we could possibly incorporate to our wedding.
Another of the key to planning a Door County wedding from a far is to read online reviews, but with a grain of salt. This was a pretty time consuming process at times, but I think it was really helpful in selecting some of our vendors. We also did talk with locals when we were in the area to get their thoughts and opinions as well.
I also asked questions on the Door County Bride facebook page and received great advice/opinions. There are former Door County Brides and locals that are on the facebook page and very willing to share their thoughts and opinions from what I have seen and experienced.
Let me know if you have any questions for me or if you have any advice for future Door County Brides that you would like to share!
