Consider your wedding or reception's theme, such as modern, bohemian, classic, or western. Are kids permitted? Is the clothing formal or informal? Is the ceremony small-scale or elaborate? Talk to your fiancé about the dreams you share.
Time to compile a guest list! Start out easy! Make 2 columns for guests of the bride and guests of the groom. Are there any additional guests to the invited party? When looking at venues, consider the number of guests.
What time, when, and where will your ceremony be? When: Consider the season you are yearning for! Choose the season, then check your calendars to see if any other events coincide with it. Where: Will the ceremony take place in the city or somewhere else? Keep in mind that this is your special day, but can your visitor travel easily and affordably? When is it? Do you want the ceremony at dusk or is it a daytime wedding?
