1. Budget

This will probably be the first thing that comes to mind before planning a wedding. It will be the determining factor when it comes down to the size, venue, food, dress, and everything else in a wedding. You cannot start to plan all of the intricate details of a wedding without coming to a conclusion on a budget with your significant other.

2. Size

The size of the wedding will also be a huge thing to think about before planning a wedding. Would you rather have every friend there or have a more intimate wedding with just family and close friends? The size of the wedding has so much more significance than just staying under budget. It can set the tone for how much attention you can pay to each individual guest.

3. Priorities

Do you want religion to be a large part of the wedding? Or do you want to spend more time focusing on the entertainment and reception? You need to figure out what you want to prioritize and spend the most time on during the planning process. Whatever you prioritize, whether it be food, the dress, or the connection between you and your significant other, it will be emphasized on your special day and be something you remember about your wedding years down the road.

4. Theme

Not all weddings have a theme, but if you are going to have one, it is best to decide one at the beginning of the planning process. Once you decide the theme, it will help you decide the color scheme, food, and decorations for your theme. Having a theme, even if it is a broad one, will generally help you in the planning process because it helps narrow down your options.

5. Colors

You might not think that the colors have a big impact on your wedding, but they can set the tone for your entire day. Once you determine your colors, you can move on to picking the bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, and decorations. Take some time to really think about your wedding colors and what they will say about the ambiance of your wedding.

6. Planner

Before you start thinking about the decorations, venue, and details of the wedding, you should contemplate having a wedding planner or going it alone. If you are well-versed in party planning, you might feel confident in planning a whole wedding without professional help. But if you are a planning rookie and it fits into your budget, having a wedding planner can make the process a whole lot easier and less stressful.
