Ultimate Guide to Wedding Planning

Planning a wedding is a lot of work. There’s a lot to take care of, so it can become overwhelming. To help you with wedding planning in San Antonio, we’d like to offer you a simple wedding itinerary to follow.

Start with a Folder or Binder

You need one place to put everything wedding related. A folder or binder will enable you to put receipts, ideas, and information from venders inside of it. You will be happy you have it when you wonder where you put this or that.

Budget

Before you start looking for anything wedding related, come up with a budget. You don’t want to start your marriage with a large amount of debt. This will help you stay on track.

Select a Wedding Party

Choose your maid of honor and bridesmaid right at the beginning of the planning process. You will need them, as you approach the wedding date, so keep them in the loop. They can be great to call on when you’re stressing and need someone to pick something up for you or help you choose something.

Come Up with a Guest List

Before you select a venue, you’ll need to know approximately how many people will be at your wedding. You won’t know how many people will come, but by knowing how many you’re inviting, you’ll have a good idea how big of a venue you need.

Reserve the Venue

Once you know the size you need, you can start touring venues to choose one. Keep your budget in mind. You can decide on the wedding date depending on your venue’s availability as well as the officiant’s.

Book the Officiant for the Ceremony

Who will marry you? Once you decide, you’ll have to match up that person’s availability with the venue’s to come up with a set wedding date.

Select Photographer, Florist, Caterer, and DJ

All you need to do now is find people to help you decorate, entertain your guests, and capture the memories. Take your time with these decisions because they are very important. Ask as many questions as you need to, ask for price quotes, and decide on the best ones.

Have Fun with Bridesmaids

You’ll need to choose bridesmaids’ dresses, shoes, and anything else you want them to wear.
This is supposed to be a good time for you and your friends, so enjoy it.

Don’t forget about the bridal shower and bachelorette party. Check with your maid of honor to see if she is available to plan it, since that is two of her duties that comes along with that title and honor.

Select and Send Out Invitations

The wedding is approaching. It’s time to tell all of your guests when and where they need to be to share this special day with you. Once you start getting RSVPs, keep them together and mark down everyone attending, so you can have a final tally
for your venue.

Tie Up Loose Ends

From this point, you’ll just have the vendors you’ve hired contact you about last minute desires. Just answer questions and they come and prepare yourself for one of the best days of your life.
