Tuesday Tips { Getting Started }

One of the best tips I think any wedding planner or vendor can give is to take your time when making decisions. You don’t need to make up your mind overnight, especially if you haven’t done enough research. If you’re working with a planner {which we highly recommend ;)}, talk to them about creating a timeline specific to your wedding. That way you’ll have time to research design ideas, where the event will be, etc.It’s better to start early so you don’t feel rushed when making big decisions. To get you started, here are a few things to get the planning juices rolling:

12+ months remaining

  • Visualize your wedding – start looking for color palettes, textures, and other design elements you like.
  • Select the date and time – make sure the date you choose works for your wedding party and church before finalizing.
  • Begin working on a guest list – this will help to dictate where the event may be held + the budget.
  • Research and book ceremony + reception sites.
  • Honor close friends and relatives by asking them to be part of your special day.
  • Plan the engagement party.
