This quick guide contains all the vital information for a newly engaged couple to begin their adventure in wedding planning! 

The question has been popped, all the happiness and butterflies are settling down, and you think.. “I am engaged! Now what?”

1. The most important step to planning the wedding of your dreams is setting your budget. Going into debt for your wedding can be a frightening thought. By defining a budget, though, you can invest in things that are the most important. Don’t let the wedding dress alone throw off your whole wedding budget! Payment plans are a great way to get things that you want too. Some vendors offer no-interest or little interest payment plans so don’t be afraid to ask!

2. Have your wedding date in mind! Every vendor you talk to will want to know when your big day is to make sure they are available. Even if you don’t have the actual date set, it’s helpful to narrow it down to at least the month and year of your wedding.

3. Book your wedding venue as soon as possible! Booking your venue first helps you secure your wedding date and set the tone for your color scheme/theme. Be sure to find out what is all included with your venue booking too! This can include food, drinks, seating arrangements, and many other in-house services. Sometimes they are included as incentives to book and sometimes there is an additional fee.

4. Start booking the most important vendors for your wedding! Examples of vendors would be your photographer, videographer, DJ/band, officiant, caterer (if not included with your venue), and florist. These vendors typically get booked almost a year or more ahead of time. Whether you are on a 6, 12, or 18 month timeline, these are absolutely crucial to book first!
