10 Wedding Planning Tips

10 Wedding Planning Tips

According to WeddingWire's 2020 Newlywed Report, more than 85 percent of couples start talking about their wedding preferences before getting engaged, yet most say one of the biggest challenges when it's time to plan is knowing where to start.


These wedding planning tips can make that challenge a whole lot easier.


Set Your Budget

Your budget is going to be what drives many of the decisions during the wedding planning process so it should be one of the first steps on your to-do list. Sit down with your spouse to be and get ready to tackle those numbers. If anyone in the family will be contributing, you'll need to have a chat with them to find out what they're comfortable spending. If you have to pay for everything yourself, be sure to take a close look at your finances over the full scope of costs that may be involved. Be surprised for a reality check as there are many expenses you probably haven't considered.


Prioritize

Something else you should think about together is which aspects of the wedding are the most important to you. You'll need to make a list of your priorities. For example, is the specific wedding date or venue more important? Would you prefer to spend more on the honeymoon and less on the wedding? Or is a royal-style ceremony with a gospel choir singing "Stand by Me" like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had your own dream? Hiring one or more gospel singers for weddings can be done at a more affordable cost than theirs, but you'll want to put that among the top items on your priority list.


The Venue

When selecting a wedding venue, the first thing to consider is the number of guests you'll be inviting, so you may want to figure out your guest list first. Knowing how many you expect to invite before looking at venues will help save you from major headaches and potential heartaches later. If many will be coming from out-of-town or you're planning a destination wedding, look for something that's connected to or near a hotel.


Don't Forget About Mother Nature

For an outdoor wedding, one of the most important factors is the weather. In some places, a summer wedding can result in misery and even heat stroke not to mention mosquitoes, gnats, and other bugs. Unless the venue is in an area with a very dry climate, you'll need to think about the potential for rain and consider alternatives should inclement weather hit.


Choose The Venue Before The Dress

The venue you select will help you determine the type of wedding dress you should get. Obviously, a short and sexy dress isn't the best option for a religious venue like a big cathedral, and a billowy ball gown isn't going to work for a beach wedding.


Don't Go Dress Shopping Without The Fashion Police

When shopping for a dress bring someone who will be totally honest with you when you're trying them on. This is a time when you need to know which one looks best, and having a close friend, sibling, your mom, or someone else there can also help when it comes to recalling which style of dresses you really preferred.


Carefully Read All Contracts Before Signing

Be sure that you read every detail of each contract you sign with all vendors. That includes the location, date and times, deposits, extra fees, and quantities. Everything must be included in the contract because if it isn't written correctly or something is excluded, you won't be protected if things don't go the way they're supposed to.


Do It One Step At A Time

To prevent getting overwhelmed or having everything snowball around you, put together a plan that allows you to do one step at a time, and in a logical order. For example, don't start hiring vendors before your wedding date is confirmed, or book the entertainment before you've decided on a space.


Be An Early Bird

Procrastination is your worst enemy when it comes to wedding planning. Make decisions early in the process to ensure you'll get the best vendors, attire, venue, and so on, that meets your budget without having to compromise.


Save On Flowers

As flowers are expensive, unless you have a big budget, have them placed along the aisle and skip the bar or other areas as no one is really going to notice.
