The Three Most Important Wedding Planning Decisions

Determine Your Wedding Budget

How much does a wedding normally cost in your area?

A wedding in your area probably costs three times the number that is in your head right now. Weddings are even more expensive than you might realize. If you've never planned one, how do you know what to expect things to cost?

Knowledge is power and knowing how much a wedding normally costs will help you determine a realistic budget, stick to it and spend less money.

Determine Your Wedding Priorities

What do you want to have at your wedding?

If you just drew a blank, that's normal. If you have never before had a wedding, you may not even know what all should go into such an important day!

Having an idea of what makes up a wedding is the best way to figure out what you want YOUR wedding to be!

Determine Your Wedding Theme

How do you want your wedding to FEEL?

This single decision will affect everything else you do during the wedding planning process - you should have this locked down before doing anything else! Your wedding theme affects your decor, your stationery, your dress, your venue, your date - everything.

Figuring out your wedding theme is the last, but not least, of the three critical wedding planning decisions - don't do anything before you determine your wedding theme!

Are you:

  • Newly engaged with no idea where to start planning your wedding?

  • Tired of ads begging you to spend thousands of dollars before you’ve even figured out what you want?
