The First 6 things to do for your wedding

December 6, 2021

Congratulations!  You’re now a fiancé, let’s live in this moment just a little bit shall we? 

If you have already started to gather wedding details, way to go! If you have no idea where to start, we are here to help! This part of the wedding planning journey is really about discovering you and your partner’s likes, dislikes and vision for the special day. It may also be helpful to start surrounding yourself with the people you know will be helpful and supportive to you and this journey. Like we said, live in this moment as much as you want. Celebrate, spread the word, notify family and friends if there is even going to be a wedding or elopement or long engagement. And when you’re ready, here are the first few steps you can take to start the journey. 

Tour/Book Venues

Each venue has something different to offer, being open and clear about your priorities for your big day will only help you find the perfect venue match. Be sure to ask things like;

“How many hours prior to ceremony can you be at the venue?”
“Are vendors provided?”
“Are payment plans available?”
“What types of exits are allowed?”

Find a Photographer

If you are having trouble finding a photographer or videographer, your venue or wedding planner may have a “vendor recommendation list” they can provide with you! If not, it’s easy enough to find local vendors on instagram. This way you can see first hand their editing style and personality!

Make your Wedding Website

We love using TheKnot and Zola to make your free wedding website for your guests. You can even personalize your URL on most wedding websites today for a small fee!

Start to look at Dresses/Ceremony Outfits

Even if finding “the dress” feels a little intimidating for you right now, you can start to decide if you want two different looks or just the one dress for the night to get started!
