It finally happened! The ring you have been so patiently waiting for, is finally on your well manicured hand, and, you posted your first Instagram as an engaged couple. When the excitement fades a little, you start googling gorgeous venues, creative photographers, amazing invites, etc. It is overwhelming how much you find on Instagram; and, you do not even know where to begin…well, friend, that was me too.
First things First…The Budget
The most important aspect to figure out first when wedding planning is your budget. Your budget is going to define almost everything-from what venue you choose, to the types of flowers you walk down the aisle with.
Once you figure out your budget, it is important to list out all the people/items that will be included in your wedding day. This includes the venue and photographer all the way down to the wedding favors you give away to guests at the end of the night. Then, rank each item in order of importance to you. That way you know how you are going to spend your budget.
