So, you’ve just gotten engaged, and you’re probably thinking: “Now What?” The perfect wedding can seem like an impossible task, especially for those on a budget. The perfect wedding will require hours of planning, making phone calls, shopping around venues and more. After all, your wedding day is going to be one day you will never forget. In order to make sure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch, it requires a good amount of planning.

Choosing a Venue

First and foremost, choosing the venue for the wedding and reception is one of the first things you should do in planning for your wedding. In many cases, the venue may be booked months ahead of time, which means your wedding date may very well be selected by the venue. Don’t be afraid to visit many different wedding venues in your search for the perfect venue.

Choose an Officiate
Learning The Secrets About Celebrations

The next step in the wedding planning process is finding someone to officiate the wedding. Do you want to go with a trusted friend or pastor, or would you just like a judge to marry you? After you select someone to officiate your wedding, then you can work with them to decide the order of ceremony. For example, will there be an exchanging of vows? Prayer?

Choosing Decorations

After the boring stuff is out of the way, now for the fun part. Selecting the right decorations can turn your venue into the perfect wedding of your dreams. Spend a little time online and find some inspiration to find the perfect theme that fits your personality. Swing by your local craft store and look for some ideas that will match your theme.

Choosing a Photographer

The next step in the wedding planning process is hiring a photographer. Spend some time looking online for some photographers close to you. A great portfolio is important, but also make sure that you’re on the same page as far as the wedding day will go.

Selecting a DJ or Band

After you’ve selected the venue and decorations, then it’s time to plan the party! Look around on review sites like Yelp to read about some great DJs around you. Selecting the right DJ will help you make sure that your reception is one to remember. Take some time and speak with your DJ about song choice, order of events, and more.

Choose a Caterer

The final thing that needs to be done is selecting the perfect caterer. First, be sure to talk with your fiance about which type of food would work best for your reception. When selecting the menu, be sure your decision fits your budget; this is often the biggest expense of the whole wedding day.

Now that you’ve made all the necessary plans for your big day, all that’s left to do is enjoy your wedding day!
