Things to Think About when Planning a Wedding

Wedding Planning


  •  Your Date
  •  Ceremony Location

  •  Sample Guest List

  •  Estimated Budget Amount

  •  Reception Location

  •  Caterer Selection:

Determining your caterer is a very important step in the process. A good caterer will allow you to enjoy your event and will help you coordinate every detail. It is very important to meet with several caterers and determine who you believe will be able to create the event of your dreams and you can trust to make it happen. Although price and budget is important, never underestimate the value of a full service caterer who will insure that the event happens as it was planned.

Other than discussing food and beverage, here are a few questions that you need to get answers to as well:

  • Have you worked at this venue before?

  • What issues have you encountered here that you would recommend against?
  •  Do you have insurance and how much?

  •  Do you have a catering license?

  •  Will there be an event manager on site until the event is over?

  •  Who will be the primary contact for me on the night of the reception?

  •  What are your clean up policies?

  •  How many weddings have you catered?

THE NEXT STEPS: Things to think about 

  •  Cake
  •  Photographer

  •  Transportation (for you and your guests)

  •  Videographer

  •  Indoor vs. outdoor wedding ceremony and reception

  •  Decide on a look and colors that coincide with the season

  •  Begin looking at dresses and bridesmaid’s dresses

  •  Plan your menu

  •  Don’t sweat the small stuff; prioritize your ‘to do’ list and establish what’s most important to you

  •  Both you and your fiancé should decide on which aspect of your wedding is the most important and make sure that you make that aspect a focal point

  •  Let one vendor lead you to another

  •  Prepare a timeline for the day of the event

  •  Plan on feeding your vendors and meeting their needs

  •  Take care of the people that you want to take care of you on your special day
