PLANNING YOUR WEDDING

 

The First Step In Planning - Questions You Need To Ask

In order to plan and budget for your wedding, there are some important things to consider about what it is that you desire your wedding to be.

 

Take a moment to consider the following questions:


At what time of day are you planning?

Saturday evening wedding or would a midweek suit you better? 
Friday evening dinner?
 Sunday brunches?
Midweek wedding?

 

What kind of ceremony will you have?

civil or religious ceremony
 civilian or military


Will children be attending?

Is your guest list a Combo List?
 (people I really want, people I need to return an invitation to, business obligations)? 

 

What kind of ambiance are you hoping for?

theme-related or traditional?
formal or informal?
music for listening/dancing or both

 

Where do you plan to hold your wedding?

indoor, outdoor or combination?

 

Consider what type of meal you would like to have.

sit-down dinner?
buffet?
cocktail reception?
appetizer only party?

 

How large will your wedding be?

intimate or grandiose?

 

What type of venue do you plan on?

large hall?
 intimate room?
 at-home?
 hotel?
 private club?
 wedding emporium? 
eclectic?

 

How much do you expect to spend on your wedding?

 

 

Will you have two attendants or a full bridal party or none at all?

 

 

Showers, Stag, Co-Ed Party-what's your preference?

 

 

Do you plan to have a Trousseau Tea or Wedding Breakfast?

Let's take a look at the options we have

before making decisions about these questions

 

The style of wedding you choose, will directly affect your choice of venue.

For Example: 

If you are planning a small, intimate gathering, selecting  the

Church at the Vatican  for your ceremony and a

large hall for your venue would

detract from the intimate ambiance you are trying to create.
