Wedding Planning: Your First Vital Decisions

When you have a wedding to plan, there can be so much to think about that it is difficult to know where to begin. As with anything like this, it is useful to just start anywhere, as that way you can at least get going. But it can be helpful to know where a good place to start is, so that you can get off to a strong start. As it happens, there are certain aspects of planning a wedding which you probably want to get out of the way as early as you can. That way, you can free up your time for all the remaining things, the little details, and make sure you have got the big ones dealt with early on. Let’s take a look at which decisions you should be making as early as possible.

Venue

Booking a venue can often be surprisingly difficult. In part, this is because you never quite know where will be free and when, but it is also because it just takes so much time. You don’t want to rush it, as it might be the single most important detail of the whole day. You want to make sure you are looking properly around the venue, considering every aspect of it, before you settle on anything. And it can often be frustrating to discover that your ideal venue is way above your budget. All of these complications mean that you should try and book your venue in as early as you possibly can.

Rings

Although these might not seem as important on the scale of the venue and so forth, there is a very good reason that you should get the rings over and done with. For a start, many couples know the experience of leaving the reigns to the very last minute. This happens simply because they seem to be such a small part of the whole decision making process. However, if you leave it too late, you might end up having to rush and choosing rings which are not what your ideal would be. If you really care about which wedding rings you have, then you should be sure to get this done as early as you can, so that you can find rings you really want.

Date

Along with the venue, around the same time, you obviously need to pick a date. It is generally helpful to have the date slightly loose, so that you can work it around the venues a little easier. But once you have found a venue which suits your dates, then you should lock it in as early as you can. This will take most of the stress out of it, and also means that you can begin sending around the save the date cards. That is one of those steps which often makes it seem very suddenly real, so it is worth it just for that. If nothing else, this will help you to feel that you can start to get excited for your own wedding  -and that is a great feeling indeed.
