Tips on Planning your Wedding

I was engaged in October and married in June because I didn’t want to wait. Other people prefer to have more time and are engaged for a year or longer before their wedding day.

There are so many different decisions to make when it comes to the big day!  Whether you are on a small budget or no limit, the basic decisions are the same. The other big factor in your wedding planning is the amount of time between getting engaged and getting married.

 

Now that you are engaged!!

The key things to think about first:

  • What time of year do you want to get married?
  • How many people do you want in your bridal party?
  • Do you want a big or small wedding?
  • Colors?

Next few key questions:

  • What is your ideal date?
  • Ideal location?
  • Budget?

What time of year is the first question because it has a lot to do with the colors, location, indoors or outdoors, cake, flowers, and attire for the wedding party. The time of year also has a lot to do with the budget. Even though, pretty much year round is wedding season, there are places, flowers, cake, and attire less/more expensive depending on the season. 

Ideal date, location and budget are in the second set of questions because depending on your date and location or if you choose a destination wedding, the budget can change drastically just from those few questions being answered.

If you have a short engagement like I did, you can either skip the save the date in the mail. I actually made my Christmas cards our engagement photo/save the date/ Merry Christmas.

Generally speaking, the venue (location) for the wedding is the first thing you will need to book as soon as you decide on it. The venues fill up fast and you don’t want to miss getting married on the date you want. 

  

I crammed 12+ months worth of planning into 9 months. If you are not an organized person there are different wedding sites and apps or you can do it the old fashion way and print out a checklist. I used theKnot.com for my planning and downloaded the app. Below is a “Snap-Shot” of what theKnot.com helps with: checklist, budget, website, guest list, registry, etc. 

An example of a wedding profile on the knot.comI found the colors, flowers, suits, dresses (even my dress) and cake style pictures all before I ever went and looked anywhere. TheKnot.com allows you to save pictures into your favorites for items you find on their site, and they are linked to shops in your area where you could go look and/or buy what you have selected for your favorites. 

      

Pinterest as we all know is another great place to save a wedding file of pictures for the big day. I am a bargain shopper and generally will shop throughout the year when items are on sale to get what I want for less and just hold onto it until I need it. 

Zulily.com and Etsy.com are great places to get table decorations, place cards, programs, fans, aisle runners, guest party favors, etc.

      

I am a planner, so if you are not a planner, I would say make sure you have a checklist of some sort so you don’t forget something on your wedding day! The wedding day is for you and your groom to enjoy and make memories of the happiest day of your life!

Elk Season is Here!

And you know what that means, time to start thinking about elk calls! Calls are an essential part of any avid elk hunter’s gear. Hunters that use calls can be usually be divided into two categories. Those in the first group sit silently and motionless, hidden from sight until a game animal wanders or flies into view. This method captures plenty of game, but some hunters prefer a more hands-on approach. This group of hunters also try to stay hidden, but they make plenty of noise to mimic animal movement. In either case, success depends on producing a convincing enough reproduction of an animal’s calls to convince a game animal to come to them.elk call, bugles, splashing water droplets all around

Bull elks produce a loud vocalization consisting of screams known as “bugles”, which can be heard for miles. Bugling is often viewed as an adaptation to open environments such as parklands, meadows, and savannas, tundras, due to the fact that sound can travel great distances. Females are attracted to the males that bugle more often and have the loudest call. So the louder and more persistently you can use your call, the better chance you have of attracting game. It is also extremely important to decide what types of elk calls you plan on using during your hunt. There are several different kinds of calls, and each is suited to a specific purpose. 

A picture of a bugle tube on a white backgroundBugle Tubes: Bugle Tubes are an essential part of any successful elk hunt. These calls mimic the bugles of bull elks, and can be used to attract either cows or bulls. Most bugle tubes contain a baffle that allows the hunter to dial back the volume of their call to simulate a bull that is moving farther and farther away. This is an excellent strategy for attracting other bulls to your location.

A picture of an open reed elk call on a white background  Open Reeds: Open reed calls are typically used to mimic the sound cows and calfs, but are extremely versatile as they can also produce bull bugles if need be. Open reeds are the perfect partner for a bugle horn, as they allow hunters to simulate a wide variety vocalizations and calls.

 

 

 

A picture of a bite elk call on a white background Bite Calls: Another great addition to your call collection would be a bite call. These elk calls produce a high-pitch, nasally sound that you’ll have a hard time making with an open reed or bugle horn. The sounds created by these types of call may be the last little trigger that you need to make the bull come that last 50 yards.

However,  when it comes down to it, you can’t just buy a call, head to the woods and start making noise and expect game to come rushing out of the brush. Like any activity, becoming a competent caller takes education, practice, and patience. Whether you’re calling turkeys, waterfowl, deer, or elk, each call demands the appropriate calling technique, and the only way to learn is to first hear what the call should sounds like, how much to call, and where and when to call. Good Luck and happy hunting!
