    The First Steps in Wedding Planning

    Congratulations, you and your soul mate have tied the knot and are now engaged. After celebrating and showing off your ring, it’s time to start planning your big day. It can seem like a fun and exciting thing, but when it comes down to it, it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and unsure where to start.

    The First Steps in Wedding Planning

    Don’t let the daunting process put you off, its hard work but it is fun hard work. During the first steps in wedding planning remember it is the most important day of your life. Relish in the fact that you and your fiancée have total power to create a perfect wedding day that reflects you and your personalities. This article explains where to start with your wedding planning and the most important things you need to do to kick it all off.

    Set up a timetable

    Make a planning timetable and schedule yourself weeks in which you want to get certain this done. This will help ensure you stick to time frames and don’t forget anything. You won’t be able to pick an exact date until you have booked your venue. You won’t be able to organise entertainment until you have booked that date and so on. So make a list of all the things you need to do and put them into your timetable in chronological order.

    Create a vision of your day

    Before you sample any food, try on any gown or decide on any flowers, look at the bigger picture and create a vision in your head of what you want your big day to look and feel like. Imagine the style and vibe of your wedding and close your eyes and picture it. This will help you to ensure when looking at wedding venues, you pick the right place for you to create this vision.

    Here are some key questions to consider when creating your vision; big or small? Outdoors or in? Home or away? Modern, classic, romantic, vintage, rustic or glam? Fancy or casual? Spend some time looking through wedding magazines and Pinterest to give you some inspiration.

    Set a budget

    Sit down with your family and work out what everyone is contributing. With this information, you can get yourself an overall wedding day budget. Then divide that up into sections so that you can have a limit for how much you spend on the wedding venue, flowers, dress, entertainment etc. This will avoid overspending in one area, leaving you short in another.

    Start a guest list

    Your guest list will probably be added to many times along the way of your wedding planning journey, but now is the best time to start drafting one. Keep in mind your vision of how big or small you wanted your wedding to be. Also keep in mind that more guests mean higher prices in other areas, as catering costs are usually based on per-head.

    Select the wedding party

    Now it’s your turn to propose to your groomsmen and bridesmaids. The earlier you ask, the sooner you can enlist for their help. Remember that they are going to be donating their time and efforts to you, so make it a nice gesture. Get creative with your proposals and make them feel appreciated. This will help encourage them to help you to the best of their abilities.

    Book the venue

    Now that you know roughly how many guests you are having and chosen your budget, you can decide on your venue and get it booked! Remember that the reception venue will be the backdrop for most of your photos and can influence the overall feel to your day. Ensure that you select the venue with the look, price and extras you want. Also, by signing your venue contract, you will officially have your wedding date!
