Getting Started with your wedding plan?
Make the announcement and do not forget to tell your parents first
Sit down with your fiancé and talk ideas. Think about the style you’d like, whether it’s a beach wedding, a sit-down dinner in a fancy hotel or an off- beat ceremony. This is your time so don’t buckle to what other people think and want.
While you don’t have to set a firm date now, it’s smart to have an idea of what month or season you want to marry in. Then you’ll know how long you have to get things organized. Because your wedding’s size determines where you’ll hold the party, how much it will cost (prices usually rise per guest) and whether travel will be involved, creating a guest list is one of the most important things to do. So make your list; your fiancé and both families should do the same. You can, and likely will, cut later, but this first number will be your base.
It’s rare these days that the bride’s parents pick up the whole bill, so decide on your bottom line. Find out from both sets of parents if or how much they can contribute. Your own contribution will go a long way to having your dream wedding.
Your friends and family are just as excited as you are with your upcoming nuptials. Never be afraid to ask for help when you are planning your wedding. Finding the right vendor and wedding service provider can take the stress away and keep you focused on your special day.
