I want to talk to you beautiful brides about priorities. Unless you have unlimited funds and a family with no opinions, planning your wedding is going to involve some degree of compromise. It is important to establish what you can wiggle on, and what you absolutely want for your dream wedding. This can be pretty difficult so I’ll give you some tools to get started.
First think about all the major components of your wedding:
Reception and ceremony venue, food and wedding cake, bar service, Guest list, décor/theme, flowers, lighting, photographer, vdeographer, DJ and ceremony music, marriage commissioner, wedding dress, etc
Now it is time to budget. It can get complicated QUICK! Go through each component with your fiancé, then prioritize out of 10 on how important it is to you. The catch is, you can’t rate everything a 10!
