What can you start to plan without a budget?

You can’t make any DECISIONS, but you can do all kinds of general research.

Do a bunch of pinteresting for design and researching vendors in your area and that should actually help you structure the budget once you get it and prioritize what things you might need to splurge on and what you can do without.

roseandcoil :  I would start with Pinterest and the Guest list like other Bee’s have said. I created multiple pinterest boards for each topic. One for wedding dresses, one for reception decor, oen for diy, one for flowers, etc etc.

However it is really easy to get overwhelmed by Pinterest. Try to find soemthing you really really like and build around ti to keep everythign cohesive. Dotn go pinning beautiful seashell centerpieces if you aren’t doing a beach theme! No matter how pretty!

The guest list is a good place to start as well. Start with a “If I could invite everyone I could possible want” list and then start to slowly color code it to peopel you must have and people you are willing to cut if need be.



PS. I would also start checkign pricing with vendors. I found venues especially do not have pricing online so it doesnt hurt to ask them to provide pricing so you can egt a general idea of your budget and how much you want to spend, since the reception/food will take up a huge chunk of your budget.

You can’t really plan anything. Absolutely everything including your guest list will come down to budget.

What you can do is research. Reach out to venues for pricing, same with caterers. Just research like crazy.

Once you’ve got a budget in place, that ids guaranteed then compile your guest list and go from there.
