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 www.happylifeent.ca for Edmonton & Calgary DJ services), florists, transportation, caterers etc.
