Choose Your Venue

Firstly, it’s wise to choose your wedding venue. You will need to consider whether you will host the entire occasion in one place or whether you will hold the ceremony in a church or other religious building. Maybe you are planning to get married abroad and have a destination wedding. 

Whatever your dream wedding venue is, it’s best to plan it early, as many venues get booked up really far in advance. 

Decide on Your Budget

Having an open-ended budget for your wedding would be incredible. But for most people, there will need to be some restrictions in place on how much they can spend. It’s a wise idea to set your budget carefully and to monitor your spending throughout the planning process. This will ensure that you don’t run out of cash part-way through the wedding planning. Plus, you will avoid starting married life with lots of debt to pay off.

Send Out Save the Date Cards and Order Wedding Invitations

Another wedding task that should be a top priority is sending out your save the date cards and ordering your wedding invites. Ordering these as soon as you can will give you more of an opportunity to choose the perfect wedding stationery for your special day, such as custom wedding invitations

Getting these ordered once you’ve booked your wedding venue and decided on a date will make it easier for you to send them out to all your guests quickly. The sooner you send them out, the higher the chances are that your guests will be able to make it and to celebrate with you.

Research and Choose Wedding Suppliers

One final task to complete early on in the planning stages requires lots of research. Wedding celebrations typically require you to use the services of a variety of suppliers. From florists to caterers, entertainers to bakers, you will have many choices to make. So, starting your research early is a good idea to ensure you get your first choices.
