Advice From Past Brides To Future Brides

Photo by Kenney Photo

I always try to follow up with our past brides each year to request photos, to follow up on whether they liked their vendors, and then also to ask a series of questions so that we can assess any needed improvements and such.  One question that I also ask is, “If you had a do-over, is there anything that you would do differently?”  Basically I am looking for any tidbits of advice that our past brides can pass along to our new crop of brides.  We are in a business where we are dealing with “bride novices” and to plan a wedding has many details.  Hopefully some of these comments can be helpful.

Fall Open House For Past & Future Brides


With a last minute cancellation of a precious Fall Saturday, we have decided to turn lemons into lemonade by hosting a Fall Open House for not only potential future brides but hopefully to also entice some of our past brides to come by for a visit to the farm.

If you are a potential future bride, then be sure and come so you can see the venue at the perfect time of day. Fall days are beautiful and the cafe lights turn the farm magical towards evening.

We will be giving tours every hour.  We have initiated a Spring Sale (limited time only) for any available March or April 2020 wedding offering huge savings for two months. If your desired date is beyond March and April, we are offering a “free night at the treehouse” for any bride that actually books while here that day.

We will have a few door prizes for gift certificates towards wedding day extras like a free bonfire.

We also will have prizes for a night in the treehouse (available for any visiting guest).

We will have a couple of our infamous High Point Farms T-shirts as door prizes and some will be available to purchase.

We are coming to our 10 year anniversary come early 2020.  We wanted to take this opportunity to invite any and all of our past brides to come to the farm to visit us again.  Come celebrate your ties to the farm and see all of the changes that have evolved throughout the years.  Check out the greenhouse.

See all of our changes to the farmhouse.

We are now an official flower farm (and goats too of course) so browse our gardens too.

Bring a wedding photo so we can celebrate “the way we were” with you.  We thank you for sharing your life with us and we look forward to greeting you again.  Even better, bring a friend who is a new bride with you to tour.

We promise to bring up one of our baby goats for a visit.  No goat yoga this time, just some goat snuggles and a few selfies!

We may have a few vendors here.  If you are a vendor who wants to come greet guests, contact us about the possibility.  We want this event low key and casual but meeting a couple of vendors might be beneficial.

Give us a shout out to let us know you are coming so we can provide a bit of nibble snacks and drinks.  See you soon!

Why We Love Summer Weddings

June is traditionally considered “the wedding month.”  I think in the past this was because it meant that school and college was out for the summer with a window of time then to get married.  This is likely still a factor today though we consider summer wedding mid-May through early September.
