Shortly after your engagement, spend some time imagining your wedding day. Together with your partner, answer these critical questions to get the ball rolling:
- When do we want to get married? Remember to give yourself some realistic time to plan.
- How much are we willing to spend? Our free budget calculator can help!
- How many guests do we want to invite, including the wedding party?
- Where should we get married? Can the venue accommodate the dates we have in mind and the number of guests we want to invite? Does it have the vibe or theme we want?
Your answers set the stage for selecting your wedding vendors. Check their product and reviews, but remember to also trust your instincts. A vendor may have wonderful reviews and a great portfolio to match, but in the end, you should personally feel good about them.
Take your time to interview each vendor to your satisfaction. Our vendor questionnaires below can help. Ask yourself, "Can I work with this person on one of the most important days of my life?" If the answer isn’t “yes”, keep looking. You want to feel confident and even excited about the vendors you hire, and the special and memorable touches they will bring to your day.
