Wedding Planning Tips

Updated: Jan 6

You're engaged and planning your wedding how exciting! We are here to help you have a stress free experience. Here are a few Wedding Planning Tips!

Don't wait until the last minute.

Start immediately; it's better to have things done in advance, so you don't have to worry about them later. Make sure your wedding date aligns with the time it will take you to prepare. That way, you know how much time you have and can plan things accordingly.

Start with setting a budget.

Setting the budget first is very important. You need to be aware of your budget price so you're not spending more than you can afford. The average cost for a wedding is 28,000, but wedding budgets differ for everyone. You can have a small budget wedding, or you can have a big budget wedding. Consider the total cost of the wedding and base the budget on that, but be flexible about certain factors in your wedding; it could save you money. It's also a good idea to have a maximum budget along with the regular one so that if you go over the regular budget, you're aware of the max you can spend. We also have a wedding expenses checklist available in our ultimate bridal planner that could be helpful with budgeting.

Make a to-do list.

When planning a wedding, knowing what you want and what you need to get is essential; a to-do list will help you keep track of everything. QUICK MINI TIP: Rank your list from most important things to least. Get things according to the ranking; that way, you take care of the essential things first.

Pick your venue early.

The venue of your wedding is one of the most important steps of the wedding planning process because it will be the location of the ceremony. The venue and budget are like the base of the wedding planning process. Ensuing wedding choices tend to build off the budget or the venue, so it's good to knock those two things out early. When deciding on a venue, consider the size, the date and time, and the budget of your wedding. Keep in mind venues are going very quickly for 2024 bribes; the earlier, the better.

Make your wedding your own.

At the end of the day, this wedding is for you and your partner, so make sure you're doing what makes you both happy. Don't let other people's opinions affect what you want to do. If you love something get it. DIY's and adding sentimental pieces is a great way to make your wedding your own. For example, you can create family photo displays, tie your bouquets in a color that's special to you, or even create a brioche bouquet. You can be as creative as you want!
