Fall Into Love

People often ask me "When is the best time to get married at Terradyne Country Club?"  My answer, and everyone doesn't have to agree with me, is Fall. Why you ask?  It's because this place is absoulutely stunning in Autumn-I just adore it!  Warm layers, rich colors and crisp, but not cool, air.  It is a fantastic time of the year to get married.  If you ask me what months are our most popular for booking weddings? I can say that the last ywo years, August has been the #1 most booked month, followed by October as #2.

Get Inspiration from the Natural Colors outside

Ambers, ruby reds, yellows and burnt orange are some of my favorite colors of the fall season.  Take a look at this beautiful bride Kateri Hopper.  She and Richard got married here last October and she was inspired by the warm colors of the fall season. I just love the floral work by Char Titus of Char's Designs.  Brides, please get inspiration by the natural beauty that surounds us in the plains of Kansas, for example tree limbs, tall grasses, pine cones accompanied by romantic candlelight.  Decor doesn't have to be expensive "Get Creative"!

Since we live in Kansas you can never predict the weather.  It is a continous battle of heat exhaustion or extreme cold, so I think that late Summer and Fall is ideal for outside ceremonies because our Kansas weather tends to cool off and it's comfortable outside.  We must take full advantage of this weather before we have to dig out our winter coats and bundle up for the snow and holiday season.  The Hereford House at Terradyne Country Club still has some dates open for Fall weddings. Please call Morgan Bauer, the event specialist, at 316-733-7800 to see what dates she has available.pan

Be Flexible

Most Saturdays are already full for the summer months, but venues often have a tougher time booking those Friday and Sunday dates.  Many couples are opting for a late Friday ceremony and celebration or a Sunday afternoon event and reception. (Since they're not prime days, you may even be able to get a break on the room rental or catering minimum.)  Don't worry; those guests who are important to you will still come to your wedding, just as long as you tailor your plans to the day.  Friday couples may want to consider serving hors devours before the ceremony to quell the hunger guests may feel during the ceremony.  Sunday brides and grooms might think about when thier guests attend church and other religious activities, then schedule around that.

Pinterest Fun!

I know most of you girls already have a vision of what you are trying to accomplish whether it be a theme, color scheme, food or decorations. Try and take things step by step, simplify.  Remember wedding plan is a process and does not have to be in one week.  Pinterest boards can get overwhelming especially if you have more than 20 or more boards and believe me, I have seen a bride that had 40 different Pinterest boards.  If you are planning your wedding a year in advance do your research pin ideas that you like but when it come to 3-4 motnhs prior to your wedding try and stay off of Pinterest, it can confuse you if anything new and exciting pops up in the wedding world and you want to redo all of your work that you have done.

Save the date or maybe the month

Let everyone you hope that is going to attend the ceremony and reception know a date is coming.  Be creative in the way you announce it.  Even if you only give them a date-or even a month-of when you plan to do it, they'll now start to clear their schedules to attend and help you in the weeks leading up to it.  Out-of-town guests can even start making travel plans.
