Welcome to the Weddings 101 section of Southern Illinois Weddings! We are so excited to launch this portion of our wedding website! Our hope is for brides to find this resource helpful during their wedding planning process. Each week vendors will share their advice, tips, and insight from their perspective for wedding planning. The combined knowledge from wedding planners, photographers, cake decorators, hair stylist, invitation designers, DJs, and all the other different vendors involved in the planning process will be accessible right here on our site! And the best part? You’ll be getting insight from local vendors in the Southern Illinois area who know all about weddings in the Midwest! Feel free to give us suggestions for articles or vendors you would love to hear from and we will try to accommodate you!


Be on the lookout this coming Sunday to hear from Kelly King of Affordable Wedding Invites by Gossett Printing in Salem, IL. She will be sharing tips on cutting costs during the printing process for your wedding invitations and printed goodies on your wedding day.
