Wedding photoWhen people get engaged, they often get so caught up in the excitement that they forget a number of crucial things when planning their wedding.

This should not be so as not considering certain things or not considering them early enough could jeopardize your wedding planning and make it all the more stressful.

To prevent this from happening, it is important to take note of a number of things that should be given first priority during wedding planning to get the best result.

Here are some things to consider when planning a wedding:

1. Dates

When the process of wedding planning first begins, it is necessary to pick a date for the event.

A lot of consideration needs to go into this. First, you need to pick a time that is conducive weather-wise, particularly if you live in an area with extreme weather conditions such as heat waves or snow storms.

Also, there are certain times of the year that are considered ‘wedding season’. These include springtime and winter. If you decide to hold your wedding during this time, keep in mind that there will be many other weddings also taking place and it would be best to be sure of any other wedding taking place in your social circle around that time to avoid any clashes.

2. Crowd Size

Often one of the most tricky parts of planning a wedding, it is important to know from the onset just how many people will be attending your wedding. This will allow you to decide on a budget and a proper venue for the event.

Send out invitations and followup to know your exact guest list. Once the number has been set, begin making plans for your wedding based on the number of people you are expecting.

3. Venue

This is one of the most important things to consider when planning your wedding as a poorly chosen venue could ruin a wedding.

Before you decide on a venue, consider the number of people you expect to attend and make sure it has the seating capacity to handle such a number.

Also, make sure the venue is at a location that will be easy to locate by your guests.

Before you decide on a NY party hall, for example, ask about the amenities such as tables, chairs, a sound system, and catering services.

4. Food

When planning a wedding, the food that will be served needs to be decided upon as early as possible in order to find a suitable caterer and make the necessary arrangements.

While finalizing the guest list for the wedding, make inquiries about whether any of them have any dietary restrictions or allergies and make sure provision is made for those who have either.



Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and some important details can get lost in the cracks. To avoid this, prioritize the items above and make sure they are taken care of as early in the planning process as possible.
