Wedding season traditionally begins in May and ends in October…but the planning for weddings is underway. Already I am booking weddings for this coming season. It seems that this year is off to a much stronger start compared to last year. With that said, it’s a great idea to begin selecting your Celebrant now as there are only so many weddings a Wedding Officiant can handle in a day…or a weekend.
This year, I am the Mother of the Bride…and won’t be performing my daughter’s ceremony. It is an exciting time for us…and yesterday my daughter and I, along with my other daughter and her fiance’s mother attended the Wedding Expo in Seattle. We found the perfect dress and she looked beautiful! She has her venue booked and has contacted an officiant about performing her ceremony. The venue she selected is The Grand Holiday Ballroom in Olympia. I performed a wedding there last year and the set up is wonderful. The chapel is darling and the lower level will house the reception. They have an in-house DJ, bar and Caterer, although they are flexible about using an outside Caterer. The set up includes all the tables, chairs, linens and tableware. They even have containers for flowers and silk flowers available. It makes it much easier for my daughter to focus on some of the other details of her wedding. I’ll be updating our progress in her wedding as the year moves along…what fun!
