Planning a wedding is no easy task, and it never has been. Even if you consider yourself a calm and level headed person, there is surely some aspect of the wedding planning process that will test your temperament and clarity at some point. But being aware of this can make things go that much smoother. In the midst of planning a wedding, what types of priorities should you be considering? Here’s our list including a few suggestions to make things a little easier on you.
Your timeline is important for you, your wedding party, and your guests
It’s easy to get distracted by your own concerns and requirements when you’re planning a wedding. However, the timeline of the big day is one that must be adhered to for the benefit of everyone involved. This is why a lot of weddings can sometimes be planned years in advance. Once you begin orchestrating different details, from guest invitations to renting a wedding venue, you’ll quickly see just how much planning goes into making a wedding happen in the first place. For this reason, you should be clear on your timeline from the get-go.
Give yourself plenty of time for every aspect of the planning process. Do you need a venue? Are you looking to have a destination wedding? What’s the theme of the wedding? All these questions and more are helpful to consider as soon as possible. Even if you think you have plenty of time, you may be shocked by the passage of time, as so many people often are. Mapping out your timeline, including giving yourself deadlines for certain milestones, is one of the best ways to stay calm and collected throughout the wedding planning process.

Know your options when it comes to reception halls, event venues, and party venues for rent
Securing a venue for your wedding and reception isn’t always going to be easy. Sure, you may have your dream location in mind, but what will you do if it’s not available on the dates you need? Having a backup plan (or several) in mind will make you far more adaptable. Being able to adjust your plans on the fly will certainly prevent you from running into any unexpected issues that may complicate things even further. Keep a keen awareness of event rental requirements and availability even if you think you’ve already secured another space. It’s all too common for disruptions to arise, and there are simply too many variables at play to not be cautious.
Normally it’s a good idea to book your wedding reception site as soon as possible once you’re engaged. In fact, it’s wise to give yourself at least a year to nine months before the wedding. You can call around and visit some different locations to get a feel for their offerings. In fact, you may even want to visit multiple venues, especially if you are not from the area where you’re having your wedding. No detail is too small to keep in mind. When you visit many venues, it’s easier to get a sense of what you want.
