Four Considerations When Planning a Wedding


Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting things for young women to do. Ever since they were little girls, they’ve been dreaming of the day they get to be Cinderella and marry their Prince Charming. More than likely, you are no different. Now that your prince has popped the question, it’s time to start planning your very own wedding. Below are four big considerations you should address when you begin planning your wedding.

1.      1.  Budget – This is the one that most brides hate dealing with, so why not get it out of the way first. Unless you come from an extremely wealthy family, you will have a budget for your wedding. It’s best to sit down with your parents and discuss this before you purchase your first bridal magazine. Then you know what you’ve got to work with.

2.      2.  Location – Next, you should be discussing with your fiancé where you two want to tie the knot. If you’ve had the perfect location picked out ever since you were little, you better get it booked!

3.      3.  Date – Getting your wedding location booked leads to the next top consideration…your expected wedding date. If you have a specific place you want to get married, you may have to visit with the event coordinator first and get a list of available dates. Then, take a couple days to discuss the available dates with each other and your families and make your date “official.”

4.      4.  Bridal Party – Once you’ve got your date picked out and location set, you can focus on putting together your bridal party. It’s important for both the bride and groom to ask their closest friends to be in their wedding as soon as they know a date to ensure nothing else will be scheduled on their friends’ calendars!
