Hello and welcome! I cant tell you the correct way to do it but I started by deciding what wedding elements are most important to me. This helped me prioritize. For me it was 1) attire 2) decorations 3) flowers 4)cake 5) food 6) # of people 7)photog 8)music/dancing 9)time/date 10)location

Since I cared most about how I looked I narrowed down my dress first then planned around that. I thought I wanted a simple look but found the dresses that looked best on me were more formal and had tons of bling. So now I am leaning toward a winter wonderland. I wanted a fabulously decorated reception but didn’t want to spend a fortune. With DIY winter wonderland is totally possible. I also decided that this would be our wedding not our families. Both of our moms can be intense so I decided to leave them out of it for now.

I don’t know if this helps as I don’t know what etiquette issues you are struggling with. You might want to put together an inspiration board to focus you in the right direction.

Dont know if this helps but happy planning!

Welcome to the Bee!  I would suggest getting a bridal magazine or a joining an online website with a planner on it.

Welcome to the Bee!

For me, the first step was a rough estimate of how many people we were going to have.  Finding a venue was next and securing the date.  I then started to plan more of the details – colors, theme, etc. except then I found my dream dress, and that pretty much changed all of my other details (I originally wanted navy blue and chartreuse for my colors, but once I found my gown, it just whispered, “vintage” to me, so I ended up changing everything else.

Not sure how busy your location is, but for venue, photographers, caterers, etc., most places were booking right at a year out so you may want to get started soon.

Welcome to the hive!!!

Budget! Before you even start looking and risk falling for something you can’t afford, figure out what your budget is. Then figure out how many guests you want.

From there, figure out your priorities, as PPs have suggested. If photography is important, but videography is not, put more money into that.
