if you recently became engaged... CONGRATS! Now for the "To Do" list. Follow these steps for a planning experience that is stress free, and culminates in the BEST day of your life!
The First 10 Steps for Wedding Planning:-
1. Enjoy Being Engaged
This is an exciting and wonderful time in your life. Soak it all in and ENJOY!
2. Tell Your Parents
Their support and advice is going to make this go a lot more smoothly.
3. Purchase a Journal If You Don't Already Have One
You will want to take notes on ideas and suggestions along the way.
4. Announce Your Engagement
Bring your close family and friends together for a formal announcement.
5. Set the Date
If you want an outdoor wedding....November is dicey.
6. Set the Tone of Your Event
Do you want a super formal affair, or a big party celebration? The answer will dictate a lot when it comes to vendor selection and venue.
7. Set the Budget
This is the one many couples fall short with. Set your budget within your means, but you must be realistic. Research average vendor costs, and determine your expected headcount.
8. Choose Your Attendants
The larger the wedding party, the longer it will take to do pictures, and execute the ceremony and reception. Time impacts costs.
9. Start Looking for Venues and Vendors for Ceremony and Reception
You can do this by hiring a planner, or go it alone by meeting with several options and determining the appropriate fit for your vision. You should start this process as early as possible, especially if your date is in prime wedding season (April-October). There are several dates that will leave you with what is left due to their popularity.
10. Get Support from your Own
Go over your options with parents, or whomever you trust to give you the best advice.
