Planning a wedding takes alot of your time and energy.  This is a huge event in your life. I know that you are juggling so much between your work, being engaged, family, home, and just plain life. Take a deep breathe and then take one more …  slowly letting out all the worry and anxiety. Make a top 5 list of things that you can do right now to get things going as far as your wedding.

Here is an example:

1) Select the wedding date while talking to you finance about this date being the all important anniversary for the two of you marking each new year of your marriage.

2) Write down your top 5 favorite locations for both your ceremony and reception while also considering great spots for an after party- you will have such a blast after the reception since you are finally relaxed and ready to celebrate with your friends and won’t want the evening to end.

3) Start with a list for your bridal party for both of you talking about how to match up the girls and guys and choices for maid/matron of honor and best man. Even talk about flower girls, ring bearer, etc

4) Talk about the type of ceremony that works for both of you whether it be traditional, intimate, funny, religious, etc. and decide the time for the ceremony such as sunset, evening, morning, and so on. This will help answer questions when you start visiting locations for your wedding day.

5) Start putting together a guest list for both sides of the family. This will not only give you an idea of the size of the space that you need for your wedding but it will also help you know the cost per guest and help you with a wedding budget and can be used for sending Save The Dates.

This is the best place to start. Take it one step at a time until you complete all five tasks. Look for the next five tips next time. Until then, enjoy being in love and the excitement that comes with your engagement. Make your love a priority and follow the tips above to help you with planning your wedding day.

Wedding Planning… where to begin

How do I start planning my wedding day?

The best way to get started with your wedding plans, is to stop for a few moments and let the image of you walking down the aisle come to your mind.  Enjoy that moment and take in all the details that you see.
Ask yourself the following questions:
  • What type of wedding dress and veil are you wearing?Shoes?
  • What is your fiance wearing? A Tuxedo? Suit? Linen Shirt and Pants?
  • Where are you? Is your wedding in a beautiful garden? At sunset on a beautiful beach? The church that your family attends?
  • How many people are there on your wedding day?
  • What flowers are you carrying? Is the bouquet a classic style? Glamorous?

Now take a deep breath and relax. There is plenty of time to plan your wedding day. This is a time to share all the excitement with your family and friends. It is also the best time to enjoy being engaged. You and your fiance need this time together. Soon enough there will be many demands on your time.

By the way, please send me your proposal story to: There will be six winners selected. The contest ends August 31, 2009 at 5:00 pm EST.  Look for future contests too!
