Now that you have taken some time to enjoy your engagement, the fun of the planning process begins! Planning a wedding can feel pretty overwhelming at times. Make sure to keep one important thing in mind: Try to have fun! This is your wedding after all. Focus on what’s truly important celebrating the love the two of you share and getting married, all while being surrounded by those you love. Here are some things to consider when you start planning your special day.
Communication is always key, especially during your whole wedding planning journey. It’s important to communicate on the dreams and aspirations you have for your special day. Communication will help with staying organized and keeping everything on track when it comes to decisions, lists, deadlines and much more. Your wedding should represent both of you, together as a couple.
Narrow down between the desired year and month that you want for your wedding. This year? Next Year? Some aspects to keep in mind when it comes down to deciding a date is weather and finances. Do you want a winter or summer wedding? A date that isn’t in wedding season could help you save on your budget.
A big decision needs to be narrowing down where you as a couple want to enjoy your special day. For many couples, it’s important that the venue they choose is easy for the majority of their guests to get to. However, whether you’re hosting your event close to home or planning a destination wedding in another city, or country, it’s important to think about the logistics of getting everyone to your event site.
Your wedding budget will be the driving factor for many of your wedding decisions, so this should be one of the first things you tackle before getting carried away with the rest. Make sure you re-visit your budget at every decision making throughout the wedding planning stage.
