So you just got engaged, YAY!! I'm guessing you are simultaneously feeling excited at thought of forever with the love of your life and slightly overwhelmed at the thought of planning a wedding. Am I close?!
Well, don't worry! Planning a wedding is SO much fun and I've got you covered. Booking your wedding vendors really is the bulk of wedding planning. So here's which vendors you need to book first!
The number of people you'd like to invite to your wedding will really help you narrow down your venue options. You want to choose a venue that will accommodate your wedding vision and have plenty of room for all of your favorite people!
The next big step is finding that dream venue and officially setting a date. This is probably the biggest decision you will have to make throughout the entire planning process.
Go over your budget and see if hiring a wedding planner is an option, especially if you are planning a large wedding with lots of details. They will help streamline the planning process for you by recommending vendors and offering help along the way.
This is the fun part! You get to ask all of your favorite people to stand beside you on your special day!
A lot of wedding vendors are only able to do 1 wedding a day...so those are the vendors you need to lock in first. I'm talking about your photographer, wedding band, videographer, etc.
It can take up to 6 months to get your dress in, so don't put buying a wedding dress off for too long! This will also help dictate the overall style of your wedding day.
Choose a color palette and start deciding what your gorgeous bridesmaids + daper groomsmen will be wearing on your wedding day.
Now is when you should book your florist, cake, lighting, rentals, etc. All the things that make your day uniquely yours!
Decide which of your favorite foods you want to eat on your wedding day! Are you going to opt for a seated dinner, buffet style, stations, or family style?
