5 Steps To Start Planning A Wedding
Congratulations on your engagement! You must be extremely excited and happy to begin this new journey in your life with your fiancé. Although it’s an exciting time, it can also be overwhelming as you try and figure out what kind of wedding you’d like to have. As the excitement starts to fade, it’s now time to get to business and start planning the wedding of your dreams! But where do you start? With so many things to consider, you can seriously start to stress even before you pick a date. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered and have a few tips on how to start planning your wedding:
- The very first thing you’ll need to do before you start going into planning mode is to set a budget of how much you’re willing to spend on the wedding. Remember to factor in every last detail because the last thing you want to be is in debt over your wedding.
- Choose Dates
- Pick a few dates in various months so that you have options. Your dream venue might not be able to accommodate your top date, so having a few backups will help when you finally decide on a venue.
- Start Your Guest List
- Even before you go choose a venue, create a guest list so that you have an idea of big the venue should be and if it fits within your budget. You might only be able to invite family and a few friends if you want a very lavish wedding, so it’s important to choose who you’ll invite to your big day because it will impact the rest of your wedding planning.
- Decide On Wedding Style
- Do you want a romantic, beach, mountain, rustic or traditional wedding? You’ll have to decide the style you’d like so that the rest of your planning can follow a certain theme.
- Choose Vendors and Venue
- After you’ve chosen the style for you wedding, you can now research and decide on vendors and the venue. Make sure that you choose reliable and trustworthy vendors because a cheaper price doesn’t always mean you’re get quality service.
Once you have these top five things done, you’ll be able to then choose your dress and then get the invites out to your guest list. So don’t get overwhelmed and tackle each task at a time!
