The first thing to know about planning a wedding is to take your time. The second is to know that it’s ok to ask for help.
Weddings can be notoriously stressful for even the most organized person. Now is the time to unplug and allow yourself to feel all of the amazing emotions that planning a wedding entails.
Here are the steps to plan a wedding.
1. Begin With a Budget
This is an important step because you will want to make sure you stay within your budget. There are many ways to save money when planning your wedding, so make sure you do your research.
Begin with a budget, and you need to know how much you can afford to spend on your wedding. Once you have a budget, you can start looking for vendors, wedding venue, and services that fit your budget.
2. Set a Date and Start Planning Early
This will allow you to avoid any last-minute scrambling. It will also give you plenty of time to find the perfect venue, book your vendors, finalize your guest list and make all of the other important decisions that go into planning a wedding.
3. Choose Your Wedding Party
Take a step back and envision what you want your wedding day to look and feel like.
Are you looking for a traditional wedding, or something more unique? Do you want a big or small wedding? Formal or informal?
Once you have an idea of the overall feel of your wedding, you can start to plan out the details.
Consider your wedding party’s personality. You want your wedding party to reflect your own personality, so choose people who will make your wedding day more fun and ask for input from your fiancé. After all, they should be a part of this decision too!
4. Send Out Save the Dates
After you’ve picked your wedding date, the next step is to spread the word! Send out save-the-dates so your guests can start clearing their calendars. Order custom save-the-dates or design your own with photos and sentimental details. Include all the important details like the date, time, and location of the wedding, as well as your wedding website, so guests can start getting excited about your big day!
5. Make a List of Must-Haves
This list should include everything that is important to you and your fiancé.
Once you have your list, you can start looking at venues, caterers, wedding planners, photographers, and more.
