  • Create and stick to a budget. As desirable as it is to have an unlimited amount of funds for your big day, it is very likely that this will not be the case. It’s important to be smart when spending money for your big day. Creating a budget will ensure that you don’t spend an unimaginable amount for your financial situation. It also helps you stay on track and be a little pickier, which can actually assist you in making decisions. Surely, the last thing you will want to do is start your marriage off with a mountain of debt due to the wedding. Let’s not forget enough money for your honeymoon.
  • Organize your thoughts. Beginning your wedding planning means that you will be filled with visions and inspiration. It’s extremely helpful to write down your thoughts, organize them into categories, such as “predicted” and “actual”. This will help you decide what you want to do and what you can do, and arrive at a healthy balance.
  • Book your perfect venue. When it comes to your wedding, your venue will set the stage for your loving and elaborate event. So, booking your venue should certainly be at the top of your to-do list. Ideally, you will want to begin planning and booking your venue about a year in advance, as this will allow you to secure your wedding date, and then begin to work out all of the other details that will comprise your big day.
