Default What is your biggest tip for the planning session?

What do you recommend bringing to the planning session? We are thinking about having ours about 8 months before the wedding.

If I remember correctly on one of the episodes on the Disney Wedding Podcast the girl said she took printouts of her pintrest boards and that to help give visualization to what she was trying to describe to the planner.

Definitely pinterest was the biggest tool! My planner and florist both pulled up my pinterest boards! Also bring swatches of anything you have and come prepared to discuss transportation, f&b, decor, and timelines.

You will make most if not all of your decisions at the PS, and then make edits based on those primary decisions.

Also be yourself! Be vocal about what you like and don't like so that your planner and florist can get to know you as a person!

There is a link in this post from Carrie Haywards blog that includes the audio from a bridal showcase session that the DFTW staff put on about how to prepare for the planning sessions. It's really got some good tips

We originally planned an escape wedding and switched to wishes the day we booked, at the 6 month mark, so we won't be able to go there for our planning session. But our contact said we could do it via Skype or something. Has anyone done that? Any tips?

I've heard of a few people doing them via Skype, including a former coworker, who had a great experience! It took her about 4 hours

I have a friend who was a DB several years ago. And her suggestion to me was to have a notebook. I work with web, so I do EVERYTHING online. But I think her suggestion to have something that you can have on you at all times is brilliant. I have digital and analog copies of everything I need in case I'm not near my computer when I get a call or an idea.
