2016 Planning Guide
Planning a wedding (even a not-so-elaborate one) involves endless details, ever-growing lists, pressing deadlines, and enough frustration and stress to make you want to run away and elope. That’s why we published this guide.
The book you’re holding, The Valley Wedding Pages Annual 2016, is your secret weapon to avoid insanity! Use it as a cheat sheet, reference, encyclopedia and workbook that spells out everything you need to know and reminds you when to get it done.
We’ve laid out the BASIC basics, like how to begin this massive undertaking, then followed that up with much, much more. This is your insider’s guide with expert advice about budgeting, venues, guest lists, invitations, catering, beverages, and entertainment. It’s your un-put-downable bible of tips about makeup and hairstyling, reception design, cake and dessert trends, flowers and décor, gowns and accessories, ceremony schedules, personalized vows, gift registries, and your all-important honeymoon. But wait—there’s still more! We’ve packed in must-have timelines, essential legal information, even directions for assembling a wedding-day emergency kit.
By all means, use the Planning Pages toward the back of this book; they’re perforated so you can easily remove them, make copies, and maintain updated notes about everything. We think you’ll find them eminently convenient and helpful!
My hardworking, energetic staff and I are delighted to present this priceless collection of inside scoops, secret clues, and lowdown information you just can’t get married without! Read it. Use it. Enjoy the time and money it will save you.
