The First Steps to Planning a Wedding
From Happy wife happy life 


The first steps to planning a wedding can be stressful. After all, it’s not like you plan a wedding everyday and you’re probably still basking in engagement bliss. So, where do you start? We’ve compiled a list to help you plan your dream wedding!

Here is our list of the first steps to planning a wedding:
  • Decide wedding date (Keep in mind that the date and the day of the week are likely to affect costs)

  • Work out your budget (It’s so  important that both of you create and stick to a budget)

  • Consider throwing an engagement party – funds permitting of course!

  • Decide whether you will have a church wedding or civil ceremony

  • Start considering the wedding party and guest list (The size of your wedding will inevitably affect your venue and budget so keep that in mind)

  • Collect wedding magazines or start a Pinterest board for ideas in regards the dress, decor, colors ect.

  • Choosing a Venue
    • Visit venues to enable you to select a favourite/s
    • Check availability for your date
    • Secure with a deposit – once confirmed available

After date and venue are set in stone, start to research photographers, videographers, entertainment (such as DJ & Photo Booth services – Check out for Edmonton & Calgary DJ services), florists, transportation, caterers etc.
