Wichita Wedding Planning: Highlights of the City
Museums and art galleries abound in the culturally rich city of Wichita. Consider an independent art gallery, a museum – like the Museum of World Treasures, or a performance hall for the site of your wedding and reception. Some of these venues include admission or a performance with your facility rental, adding an intriguing twist to your celebration.
Wichita Wedding Planning: Weather Considerations
Expect cool, dry winters and hot, sunny summers in Wichita. Rain is most common in May and June, so use caution if you’re planning an outdoor wedding. Frequent thunderstorms are not uncommon in the spring and summer months and can sometimes be severe. If your heart is set on an outdoor wedding, consider a tented outdoor affair or choose a venue that offers an indoor facility in case of bad weather.
Wichita Wedding Resources
Busy brides can use all the help they can get! Take advantage of bridal shows and wedding expos in the Wichita area – they’re a great place to meet up with other brides to swap ideas and an even better chance to connect with local wedding vendors. Bridal boutique trunk shows are great events to make time for too, especially if you’re interested in the latest wedding styles and trends.
Remember to consider your out-of-town guests during your wedding planning. An information packet with nearby services, as well as directions to your ceremony and reception site will be greatly appreciated by guests that are unfamiliar with Wichita. You may also want to reserve room blocks if you’re expecting several overnight guests, especially if your wedding date coincides with other Wichita events.
