First things first: Congratulations on the engagement! I hope you have taken a week and let it soak in, smile big, and show off your new ring. Now, let us begin the exciting and wonderful process of planning your wedding. We have much to do in a time frame that will fly by faster than you could imagine.
Step one is to chose a date, but if a venue for the ceremony or reception is particularly important to you, see what dates they have open before you pick your official date. There are many things to remember, and a few questions to ask, when picking out the perfect venues.
1. Is your date available?
2. What is the deposit price and total cost?
3. What is the capacity for seating with rounds and eight-foot tables?
4. Do they have an in-house caterer, recommended, or no catering regulations?
5. What is the alcohol policy?
6. What are the decoration guidelines?
After you have the answers, and they are to your liking, go ahead and ask a few people for their opinions. Do not waste time making this decision. You want to get your name on that date if you decide to go with that venue. When you have secured your locations, let the daydreaming begin! Start writing down ideas, cutting out pictures, making idea boards, and developing what you want your day to look like.
