Top 10 Tips for Booking a Bed & Breakfast for Your Wedding:

1. Early Planning:

To secure your desired wedding date, it is important to start your wedding preparations well in advance. Early planning ensures that you have the flexibility to choose from the best available options and reduces the chances of scheduling conflicts.

2. On-Site Visit:

While scheduling a personal visit to the bed and breakfast to assess if it’s ideal for you, please note that bed and breakfasts may not always accommodate visits. Most likely not possible, due to high demand in bookings or remote management. It’s advisable to inquire about visitation policies when making your initial inquiries.  

3. Intimate Guest List:

One of the advantages of a bed and breakfast wedding is the opportunity for an intimate gathering. These venues are tailor-made for smaller, close-knit weddings. Elopements, in particular, align perfectly with this style. However, if you plan to invite a larger group, we have alternative solutions to accommodate your needs.

4. Accommodation Check:

It’s essential to verify that the bed and breakfast can comfortably accommodate your guests, especially if they plan to stay on-site. Or explore nearby accommodation options as many popular locations offer a variety of choices to cater to your guests’ preferences.

5. Policy Review:

Familiarize yourself with the bed and breakfast’s policies concerning catering, decorations, and event duration. Clear communication and adherence to these policies are key to a smooth and enjoyable wedding day. Keep your guests and wedding suppliers informed about these policies to ensure a harmonious celebration.

6. Outdoor Options:

Weather permitting, consider utilizing outdoor spaces for your wedding ceremony. Look for locations with beautiful settings or charming gardens that can serve as a picturesque backdrop for your special day. Outdoor ceremonies can add a touch of natural beauty to your wedding.

7. Local Vendor Support:

Supporting local vendors for catering, flowers, hair & makeup is not only a great way to enhance your bed and breakfast wedding experience but also an opportunity to contribute to the local community. Research and collaborate with local businesses to make your wedding uniquely memorable.

8. Transportation Arrangements:

Organize transportation for your guests, especially if your chosen B&B is in a remote location. This ensures that your guests can comfortably reach the venue and return safely, contributing to a worry-free celebration.

9. Backup Plan:

Being prepared for unexpected weather or unforeseen circumstances is crucial. Many bed and breakfasts offer beautifully decorated indoor spaces that are perfect for intimate weddings, serving as an ideal backup option if the weather doesn’t cooperate or other unexpected challenges arise.

10. Styling:

Given that B&Bs are typically styled with charming interiors, consider incorporating this existing beauty into your wedding styling. Alternatively, opt for a simpler decor scheme that complements the venue’s ambiance. Our skilled stylist at KISS PACKAGE can assist in bringing your vision to life, whether it’s enhancing the existing charm or creating a bespoke atmosphere.

Do’s and Dont’s:

Embrace Intimacy:

Bed and breakfasts are uniquely suited for smaller, intimate weddings that prioritize close relationships and personal connections.

Respect the Property:

It’s essential to treat the bed and breakfast and its surroundings with care, showing respect to both the property itself and its neighboring community.

Clear Communication:

Maintain open and transparent communication with the B&B owner to ensure a seamless and enjoyable wedding experience for all parties involved.

Avoid Overcrowding:

Adhere to the bed and breakfast’s capacity limits to ensure the comfort of all guests and the overall success of your event.

Underestimate Planning:

Even for smaller weddings, comprehensive planning is indispensable. Enlisting our KISS services can alleviate stress and ensure a well-organized event.

Disrupt the Peace:

Keep in mind that bed and breakfasts often have nearby neighbors. Therefore, it’s crucial to avoid late-night noise disturbances and maintain a respectful atmosphere throughout the celebration.

Navigating Wedding Anxiety Together

Navigating Wedding Anxiety Together

Tips for Couples Considering Elopement or Micro Weddings

Getting married is an exciting milestone in any couple’s life, but it can also bring about a fair share of anxiety and stress. From planning the perfect wedding to adjusting to the idea of spending a lifetime together, these emotions are entirely normal. The key is to face this anxiety as a team and use it as an opportunity to strengthen your bond. In this blog, we’ll explore some strategies to help you and your partner manage wedding-related anxiety, whether you’re planning a traditional wedding, eloping, or opting for a micro wedding.

Open and Honest Communication:

The foundation of any healthy relationship is communication. Make sure you and your partner create a safe space to discuss your anxieties, fears, and expectations about the wedding. Being open and honest with each other will not only reduce wedding anxiety but also build trust and understanding.

Set Realistic Expectations:

It’s easy to get caught up in the grandeur of weddings, but remember that it’s just one day in the grander scheme of your life together. Discuss your budget and priorities, and make sure your wedding plans align with your values and long-term goals. Setting realistic expectations can help ease financial stress and reduce wedding anxiety.

Consider Elopement or Micro Weddings:

If the idea of a large, traditional wedding is causing excessive stress and wedding anxiety, consider the alternatives. Elopements and micro weddings have become increasingly popular choices for couples who want an intimate, stress-free celebration. They can be more budget-friendly and less overwhelming, allowing you to focus on the essence of your commitment to each other.

Self-Care and Stress Management:

Whether you choose a traditional wedding, elopement, or micro wedding, both you and your partner should prioritize self-care to manage wedding anxiety effectively. Encourage each other to engage in activities you find relaxing and stress-reducing. A calm mind and a healthy body will help you approach wedding preparations with more clarity.

Remember the “Why”:

When wedding anxiety starts creeping in, take a step back and remind yourselves why you’re getting married in the first place. Reconnect with the love, commitment, and excitement you have for each other. Keep your focus on the bigger picture, which is building a life together, rather than obsessing over wedding details.

Pre-Marital Counseling:

Consider pre-marital counseling or therapy sessions with a qualified therapist. These professionals can help you explore any underlying fears or concerns and provide you with tools to strengthen your relationship and cope with wedding anxiety effectively.

Create a Support System:

Lean on your friends and family for support. They can offer guidance, lend a listening ear, and even help with wedding-related tasks. Surrounding yourselves with a support system can make the journey less stressful, regardless of the wedding style you choose.

Take Breaks:

It’s okay to take breaks from wedding planning. Don’t let it consume your entire life. Plan date nights or weekends where wedding talk is off-limits. This will allow you to reconnect as a couple without the pressure of wedding anxiety from planning.

Accept Imperfections:

Perfectionism can fuel wedding anxiety. Remember that not everything will go exactly as planned, and that’s okay. Embrace imperfections and cherish the unique moments that happen spontaneously during your wedding day, whether it’s an elopement on a remote mountaintop or an intimate micro wedding in your backyard.

Seek Professional Help When Needed:

If wedding anxiety becomes overwhelming and starts affecting your mental health, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor or healthcare provider for help and tips. They can provide guidance, resources, and potentially recommend therapies or medications to manage anxiety effectively.

Wedding anxiety is a common experience for couples, but it doesn’t have to overshadow the joy of your special day. By communicating openly, setting realistic expectations, and prioritizing self-care and support, you and your partner can navigate this journey together with love and resilience, whether you choose a traditional wedding, elopement, or micro wedding. Remember, your wedding is just the beginning of a beautiful adventure as a married couple, so enjoy the ride!
