How feasible is it to plan a wedding in a city you don’t live in and any tips for doing so?
This is definitely doable. You can start by scouting venues in that area and asking them to provide a “virtual tour.”
Speaking to a wedding coordinator or a consultant in that specific city can also help you a lot; ask for the average costs and availability; to help you set expectations better.
In terms of looking for vendors, if you are in a different city and you are limited to traveling to meet vendors, ask your “potential venues” and ask them about their in-house or preferred vendors.
In addition, vendors preferred by the venue already have established credibility with the venue and know the land’s lay better.
Another good thing about working with preferred vendors is that you will most likely be able to put them all in the same place for when you do your walk-through.
You can meet with them simultaneously at the venue and do your tasting, mock-up design, and other things that you would want to see put together for you.
We’ve curated this checklist and guide to help you plan an out-of-town wedding.
