Planning a wedding Ian exciting thing for many couples, regarding same sex weddings and more. And with the legality of same sex weddings now in place, there are likely to be more weddings in the United States than ever before in the years that are to come. From same sex weddings to opposite sex weddings, it has even been estimated that very nearly two and a half million weddings occur over the course of just one year here in the United States, meaning that very nearly 45,000 of them take place each and every weekend (though some times of the year, such as the summer months, June in particular, are more popular for weddings than others are).
But wedding planning can certainly be a long process, as there are many things that must be decided upon. For instance, the budget of the wedding should be set right at the start of the planning process, as it is this budget that will dictate just about everything else surrounding the wedding. Typically, weddings can be quite expensive, with the ceremony and the reception together costing more than $28,000 on average. However, this cost will vary from soon to be married couple to soon to be married couple, with some people choosing to spend more and others figuring out ways to spend considerably less. But from same sex weddings to weddings between members of the opposite sex, there is certainly no denying that planning a wedding – and ultimately throwing one – is always likely to be an expensive process regardless of other factors.
Once your budget has been set, you’ll need to pick a venue. For this, same sex weddings might find themselves coming up against some discrimination if they are interested in having their ceremony in a church like setting. However, there are many other places that will be more than happy to accommodate same sex weddings (and more and more churches these days are now as well, something that is certainly important to make a note of). But for many a ceremony, a premier golf course represents the prefect location for many a couple.
From public golf courses to the premier golf course, there is no doubt about it that golf courses are widespread throughout the country. In fact, there were already at least 1000 of them by the time that we had reached the year of 1900, a number that has only continued to grow exponentially in the years that have passed since – and is likely to continue to grow in the years that are to come as well. Golf courses are the ideal location for the outdoor wedding, something that is becoming more popular than ever before (representing up to 35% of all weddings held in the United States, from same sex weddings to weddings between straight couples).
Golf courses can present the idyllic backdrop for outdoor weddings, especially for weddings that take place on beautiful summer days. However, it’s important to note that golf courses can also be an ideal place to host a wedding because of their adaptability, as many a golf course will have an indoor venue as well. While hopefully this won’t become the case for any given wedding, it can be ideal for weddings that end up being held on rainy or even stormy days, when the possibility of an outdoor wedding becomes far less likely – and far less likely to be enjoyable in any way, shape or form at that.
And once you’ve picked out a venue, you’ll need to finalize your guest lists. Though the typical wedding will include around 150 guests, there is no doubt about it that different weddings will have different numbers of people there, as only makes sense. Some weddings will be quite significantly larger, and it’s important to remember that the venue chosen must be able to accommodate lists like this. For smaller weddings, money might be able to be saved by choosing a wedding venue of a considerably smaller size, as this is likely to be all that is needed.
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that the wedding only must be perfect for the couple getting married.
