Starting with a guest list can be a great place to start, so that you have an idea of how big of an event you will be planning. Pinterest boards are another fun way to organize and get excited about the wedding ideas that inspire you the most.
The most daunting task of wedding planning can be picking the right venue. It is important to have a style of venue in mind, and then from there, comparing costs of similar venues. Don’t forget to consider what is included, and required, from each venue when making your choice.

Setting a timeline is a critical step in making sure your wedding planning goes smoothly. You’ll want to book venues and bigger vendors for the things that are most important to you as soon as possible, to make sure you get exactly what you want. Find a timeline template online and then tweak it to fit your specific needs. Event planners are also great resources for keeping to a wedding planning timeline.
When it comes to choosing a caterer, go into the process knowing your style and your budget. Make sure to go into choosing a caterer having researched testimonials and online reviews, and knowing what is important to you and what things you can be flexible with. Catering will be one of your biggest expenses, but keep in mind what a huge role they play in the event, from service, to food, to most likely rentals.
