Once you have shared the news, you will want to start thinking about a wedding date. Determine the time of year you wish to have your wedding and the photography that will be depicted. Consider major holiday weekends and if you wish to plan a destination wedding. One tip is to opt for another day other than Saturday, such as a Friday or Sunday wedding. In doing so, you can slice your venue fee nearly in half.

Once you have your date selected, you will want to schedule an engagement photo shoot for you and your fiance. These photos typically capture the engagement ring and portray your love and commitment. Opt for a location that means something to you and your future spouse. Many couples choose to have their dear friends and family snap a few photos, but it's becoming more common to hire a professional wedding photographer.

The fun part of the process is selecting a theme. Couples are getting creative, making their wedding day a true replica of their interests as a couple. Depending on the theme, your colors are chosen and typically, the mood of theme as well. If you're having a destination wedding, your wedding will be a bit more casual. It's dually important to review religious aspects and if you and your significant other are representing your beliefs throughout the ceremony and/or reception.

The next area you want to focus strongly on is your budget. Choose the budget wisely, as you don't want to over-exceed the dollars allocated. Many weddings can cost anywhere between 25,000-65,000 euro. Of course, this dollar amount is based on the location of the event. Many New Yorkers have a wedding around €65,000. You will want to consider the amount of guests you plan on inviting as well, in order to get the most accurate numbers. Be mindful that you could spend more on tables/chairs, wedding favors, and food, as the cost is dependent on the amount of people.

Determine Guest List The biggest task is compiling a list of guests who you want to share your special day with. Be mindful of the number as you will usually pay per person for catering. Don't provide options for single guests not in a serious relationship to bring a guest.

Select the Bridal Party The fun part is having your best friends and close family members by your side the day you get hitched. Make sure to talk the bridal party over with your future spouse. You will want to consider how many people you have based upon your budget. Remember, bridal party gifts and favors should also be included in your budget.

Lock in Venue/Caterer To make sure that all is set on your special day, you will want to look at potential venues and perform a taste test of hor'dourves and the main meal. This is also a good time to decide whether your prefer a buffet style meal or formal sit down dinner.

Since the wedding date and venue is confirmed. You will now want to order and distribute the Save-the-Date announcements. Sending the announcements to your guest list announces your engagement as well as allows your guests to secure the date to assure their attendance.

Purchase the Gown The bride-to-be's main priority is the wedding dress. It's never too early to start looking for the perfect wedding that gown that flaunts the best features of the bride.

With the theme and colors selected, you can now choose your bridesmaid dresses. Many brides select a color and dress with their bridesmaids. Make a day of it!
