How to Start Wedding Planning

How to Start Wedding PlanningCongrats and best wishes are in order: You’re engaged! It’s an unforgettable time in your life, but after the initial rush of engagement excitement wears off, you may be wondering, “Now what?” Wedding planning can seem an overwhelming and daunting task, and you may not know where to begin. If you nail down the essentials early, the rest of the big day planning can be executed over time with ease. How to start wedding planning? Narrow down a date, pick your venue, and settle on a style. Then everything else will fall into place.


Before you let yourself fall in love with a particular venue or vision, determine your wedding day budget. You’ll want to have a candid conversation with your fiance and loved ones to determine who is paying for the wedding and how much they are contributing. Once you have a budget in mind, you can begin the planning with confidence.


It helps if you have a season or month in mind for your wedding. Some couples have a special date in mind, which can be both helpful and hindering. On one hand, it’s nice to have an exact date to inquire about but on the flip side, you’re immediately limiting your options by sticking to one date. It’s best to be open to dates depending on the availability of your favorite venue.


Your venue will likely be your biggest expense, especially if catering is coordinated through your venue. Choosing your wedding venue is a big decision. The best wedding venues have a variety of location and space options to fit your event, offer payment plans and budget-friendly options, and let you customize your wedding to fit your personality.
