I think that’s something you’ll have to determine for yourself. No one knows you as well as you do.

  • Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor

Agreed, that totally depends on you. But here are all of the wedding-related things Mr. W and I have had to do in-person (as opposed to via email/phone):

  • Venue search. Have you booked a venue? That took several Saturdays.
  • Rehearsal dinner search. We wanted to taste the menus at several different restaurants before we picked one. This isn’t something you have to do on a weekend during the daytime, though.
  • Tasting for the reception.
  • Tasting for the rehearsal dinner. (I don’t think this is too common, but the restaurant we booked offered us a free tasting so we couldn’t turn it down!)
  • In-person meeting with florist. (Did this on a work night – my florist, and I assume most florists, are busy with weddings on the weekend and prefer to have consultations during the week.)
  • Cake tasting.
  • In-person meeting with day-of coordinator.
  • Bridal shower.
  • Bachelorette party.
  • The rehearsal itself. I’m taking off the day before the wedding to get things ready, and the rehearsal is in the afternoon when I would normally be at work.

I hope that helps!!
