It's bread and butter, but better—so we knew we had to try it.
While each and every wedding-related decision plays a part in crafting your big day, there are a few choices that make a bigger impact than others. One of the biggest? Your venue. Your party space has the ability to set your wedding's tone, which is why choosing your site wisely is absolutely imperative. No pressure, right? According to several of the wedding industry's most lauded planners, there doesn't have to be—especially with their tips at your disposal. Start early (aim to begin your search at least a year out!) to select a location that suits your wedding style, whether it's classic, bohemian, or rustic. During your search, pay attention to venue package types (will this vendor provide space, food, and drink?) and its overall capacity (are you wasting money on space you don't need?). These criteria will ultimately make or break any prospective venues.

Whether you're celebrating one year of marital bliss or your first decade of matrimony, a thoughtful anniversary gift that shows how much you care is an absolute must. If you've done your research, you know that some couples choose to exchange presents based on their anniversary year. You might also know that there are two types of lists—traditional and modern. If you're sticking with the classics, your first married year calls for paper, the second for cotton, the third for leather, and so on. You know the drill! Finding the perfect present that suits your spouse can be challenging enough and choosing one that also aligns with the traditional anniversary year gift can feel near impossible. That's where we come in. We've outlined the classic present categories for the first 20 years of marriage and even added in a few gift ideas (for him and her) for each, too.
