In this blog, we’ll guide you through the key steps to start planning your wedding as 2024 begins.
Setting Your Wedding Vision
Start by envisioning your ideal wedding day. Think about the season, theme, and overall feel you want for your special day. Whether it’s a cozy winter wedding or a vibrant summer celebration, let your imagination run wild. You can also create a mood board, where you can collect images, swatches, and inspiration that resonates with your wedding vision. This will be a helpful guide in making your dream wedding a reality.
Budgeting for Your Big Day
It’s crucial to set a realistic budget early on. Consider all aspects, including a venue rental, catering, decor, photography, attire, and more. Determine what elements of your wedding are most important to you. Maybe it’s the food, the photography, or the ambience. This can help you prioritize and allocate your budget effectively.
Choosing the Perfect Date
Each season offers a unique backdrop, especially here at The Barn at Walnut Grove. Decide which season aligns best with your vision and style. Contact the venue to inquire about available dates. Popular wedding dates can book up quickly, especially if appropriate time isn’t given beforehand to notify the venue.

Vendors & Partners
Look for photographers, caterers, florists, and musicians who have experience with weddings and share your aesthetic with them. Meet with potential vendors early to discuss their prices, services, and other details that are good to know.
Start compiling your guest list and think about the design of your invitations. Depending on the style of wedding you want, your invitations should reflect a similar feeling. You should also work with caterers to create a menu that complements the venue, along with seasonal and local ingredients for an authentic touch.
Start your wedding planning at the beginning of 2024 to take your first step on an exciting adventure! With a clear vision, careful budgeting, and the right team of vendors, your dream wedding will come to life in this enchanting venue.
