Steps to start your wedding planning the right way

From your gown to the video editing service, these tips will get you off on the right foot.
Decide on your budget

Wedding Video Tipperary _ Abbey Video ProductionsThis first step can be one of the hardest, but it’s also one of the most necessary. Make some firm decisions about how much you can actually afford to spend before you start daydreaming about that perfect dress, perfect venue, and perfect reception. Figure out how much the two of you can afford, and then realistically discuss who else will be contributing towards the day. This decision will determine almost all of your subsequent decisions about venue, gown, photographer, video editing service and more. Once you’ve got a handle on your total budget, you can move onto your next steps.
Narrow down the dates
Wedding Video Tipperary _ Abbey Video ProductionsBetter safe than sorry. Decide on your season, and then pick 2-3 potential dates. Some venues or services – like photographers or video editing services – can book up quickly, so it’s smart to have some fall back positions. Don’t delay on this step, since some preferred wedding venues can book up over a year in advance.
Guests? Make that list!

Now’s the time to put together your guest list, after you’ve decided on your budget. It is simple math – more guests means more expense.
Choose your style or theme
This is an important decision. You want a wedding style that matches your personality as a couple, be it simple, elegant, traditional, or rustic. This decision helps simplify a lot of other decisions down the line, like decorations, venue,
Pick your venue
Wedding Video Tipperary _ Abbey Video ProductionsThis step may take some research and legwork. When you’ve decided on your short list, give the chosen venues a call and see if they have your dates available. If that works, take a trip to check out the venue and see how it feels for your planned nuptials.
Research and interview vendors
“Vendors” covers a lot of people – photographer, video editing service, florists, caterers, and so much more. Sit down and make a list of all the people you’ll need to hire, and then start looking for recommendations and doing research. Collecting business cards at a bridal show is an excellent way to get started if you’re completely overwhelmed.
Once you’ve narrowed down your list, set up some interviews and talk to the people you’re interested in hiring. Be prepared with specific questions and don’t be afraid to talk about what you want from the vendor. If you want personalized DVD for each bridesmaid, be sure to see if your potential video editing service can accommodate you.
Remember, you’re in charge!
