Enjoying this brief and beautiful moment in your life together can be marvelous!
Talk about wedding dates
Once you’re ready to start wedding planning, set aside some time to discuss wedding dates. Choose two or three backup dates, just in case the venue or vendor of your dreams is booked on your ideal wedding date. Setting a wedding date can give you something to work towards.
Set a budget
Make sure everyone is on the same page by setting a budget. Whether it’s a talk with your family or just a talk with your fiancé, setting a budget is one of the most important parts of planning a wedding. Wedding costs can quickly escalate, and having something to work within is helpful for both you and your vendors.
Start thinking about your main bridal party
Who is going to be there for you through the ups and downs of planning a wedding? Choosing a bridal party can be tough, but you really need to think about the people who you want there for you. You’ll want to make sure your bridal party is reliable and trustworthy. Make sure that they’re the people who know you best. Sometimes people can be offended if they are not included in your bridal party, but your wedding is about you and if they are truly your friend, they should understand that.
Optional: Hire a wedding planner
Just not up for planning the wedding yourself? Hire a wedding planner to save yourself some stress. It is an extra cost in your wedding, but many people except that class at the relief of not having to plan the wedding themselves. Hiring a wedding planner can save a lot of stress for couples who are not super into the production of an event, but still would like to throw a wonderful occasion with those that they love.
