- Plan Your Budget
- The Guest List
- The Wedding Party
- Choose a Venue
1. Pick Your Date
Choosing the perfect date for your wedding can be stressful. Think through busy travel times, holidays, and the time of year that will affect your pricing for the venue and services. You may want to consider a beautifully unique fall or winter wedding that may save money and increase your event’s attendance.
2. Plan Your Budget
Whether looking at a ballpark estimate or a line-by-line breakdown of expenses, you need to have a realistic budget before planning your wedding. Create spreadsheets to track spending and highlight “must-haves” in a different color than “nice to haves” on the sheet.
3. The Guest List
The guest list may seem overwhelming, but it is less stressful if you break it down into smaller lists. Start with the number of guests you can comfortably afford to invite, and segment the list into:
- Immediate family and close friends
- Extended family and friends
- Neighbors and coworkers
Take note of single guests, and decide if your budget can include a +1 for them. If you’ve exceeded your limit, start paring down from your list of neighbors and coworkers first.
4. The Wedding Party
People often ask how many people should be in a wedding party, and the answer is simple: as many as it takes. When selecting your wedding party, you are responsible for purchasing a small gift for each member. You may also be responsible for their suits or dresses. The bride usually provides professionals for makeup, nails, and hair for the women in the wedding party.
5. Choose a Venue
Finding the perfect venue for your wedding will depend on the type of ceremony you are planning. Look for venues with simplistic elegance and wide-open areas, such as Venue Bouchon. These spaces can be as formal or relaxed as you want for your big day. Make sure the venue has changing rooms, ample parking, and plenty of room to seat everyone on your guest list.
