I started with writing a rough list of guests so I could get an idea of how many people we’d be having at the wedding. Then, I went to venue. Once we got the venue, other things just started rolling into place!

Ohh, I remember when I first started planning…sigh!

What I did to start was buy a spiral notebook, where I recorded things in sections; inspiration for the ceremony and the reception.  from there, it was talking with my Fiance, picking a time of year that would work – like a date ‘time’ (we had picked ‘fall’) at first then talked to our families about what a realistic guest count might be, then we visited a few potential venues.

after we got an rough idea of guest count (we knew less than 100, more than 50) we did some general estimates with venues.  When we picked our venue, then it was time to start the decor/etc., because that really set the tone (level of formailty, indoor/outdoor) which translates to possible color scheme and of course, the dress!

It really just built from there, so yup…it does all fall into place, I promise!!

Honestly, they can be kind of gimmicky but you might want to look through a Wedding Planner binder at Barnes and Noble (make sure you clean up your mess!) or Borders or whatever bookstore you have closest to you. They have a ton of books about where to start and what order to do things in (so then you can throw it out the window. The Knots book of lists is excellent for making sure you don’t forget anything!
