Where to Start the Wedding Planning Process
If you’re still in the beginning stages of the wedding planning process (or just engaged) – it may be overwhelming and you’re probably asking yourself “Where do I start?” So we’ve compiled a few helpful tips and advice to make this moment enjoyable and relaxing.
First things first – get together with friends and family and celebrate your engagement. Start off your process with a little fun and relaxation. Then, when you’re ready to start making some decisions, brainstorm locations and the time of year that you want to get married. Talk it over with parents and other family members, but don’t try to be so flexible around everyone else’s schedule that you break. When it comes down to it, your wedding is about you and others WILL make schedule changes for you as well.
Focus on special moments in your relationship for inspiration for your wedding. If you love being on the water, boating and water sports, think of having a wedding by a lake or the ocean. After all it’s YOUR wedding and should be about what it most important to you and your fiancé. If family is your number one…think about having it in a traditional place in your hometown.
Pick a date and stick with it – but if something does come up, know that you can always change it. Just check with the venue to make sure that it is possible. Once the wedding date and venue have been decided – that’s when the fun begins. Start by sketching out a budget, getting price quotes from vendors and envisioning your dream wedding. Colors, flowers, and invitations will float through your head as you make your journey to the aisle. Good luck and check back for money saving tips and unique wedding themes next week!
