  • How much do you have to spend? Before planning any aspect of your wedding, you will first need to create your budget. You budget will be the deciding factor for each element within your big day, from the flowers to the dress. First, create your main budget, which is the absolute overall amount that you have to spend on your entire wedding. From there, you can delegate smaller budgets for details within your wedding, such as your entertainment and food. Knowing what you have to spend will allow your planning to flow with ease.
  • Style your big day. After determining the amount of money that you have to spend within your wedding, you will then need to determine your style before moving forward. They style of your wedding will be what sets the tone for each detail you are choosing, from your linens to your flowers. Whether you are going for a more rustic theme or modern glam, you will want each element of your big day to tie into your overall vision.
  • Who will be attending? As you begin planning your wedding, you will probably not know exactly how many people will be attending, but an overall guestimate will be needed. The number of guests you have coming will play a key factor in how much space you will need within your venue and how much food will be served. An overall estimate will need to be put in place to be able to coordinate these factors.
  • Set the date! Before planning any of your vendors, you will need to set your wedding date. First, choose your venue, as your location will need to be set in stone before you continue on with your planning. When choosing your date, keep in mind that planning around holidays or within peak seasons will certainly be busier times. Therefore, you will want to give yourself as much time as possible to plan, so that you are able to securely book all of your vendors.
