Congratulations, you are engaged! As you spread the news to your family and friends the questions are rolling in...When? Where? How? All of these questions can be overwhelming if you don't know how or where to get started with the planning process.
Over the next few weeks, I am going to break down a few of the important steps to getting your planning off on the right foot. We will start with the Budget (that scary word that everyone hates to think about), discuss the Guest List and then move to Setting the Date and Finding the Perfect Venue.
In the meantime, start to pull ideas together of what you envision the day to be. Are you dreaming of a warm summer day with an outdoor ceremony? A grand reception in a formal Ballroom? Or maybe a small intimate event in your family's backyard? All of these things will affect your budget in different ways so having a general idea of the type of event you want will be helpful in the first step of planning.
