- Find the Perfect Venue
Finding the wedding venue first will help you set a date and location. Finding something aesthetically beautiful while also being convenient for all your guests is hard but by focusing on you and your partner’s wants, it can be easier than you think! When you go to visit the venue try to imagine your wedding day there. From “I do” to the reception, make sure it provides all needs for a successful day. It’s sort of like your wedding dress, if you feel it’s the one, then go with your gut!
- Choose your bridesmaids!
There is no perfect number of bridesmaids. Depending on the size of your wedding, it could vary from 2 girls to 10! Think about a friend who has been in your life since you were young, a new friend that has an instant connection with you, a co worker that you see every single day, and maybe your husband’s sister or cousin! Think about the women in your life that inspire you and that will stay in your life for the long haul!
- Start the guest list
Combining two families into one venue isn’t as hard as it seems! You and your fiancé can discuss together the size of the wedding, this will go along with the budget you have discussed. Choose family members and friends that support your upcoming marriage. Contact a parent to make sure you haven’t forgotten a cousin or two! 😊
