How to Create a Priority List for Your Wedding

How to Create a Priority List for Your Wedding

It is not uncommon to forget some crucial details in wedding planning. Despite your budget, it is essential to create a priority list to ensure that nothing is left to chance. Weddings can be expensive and the best way to have the wedding you dreamt of, is to decide on the most significant parts that will make up your ceremony. 

The first step is to discuss with your fiancé and compare your priorities to eventually come up with one definitive list for both of you. This list should be natural to come up with having either attended other wedding events or from experience, you have a mental picture of the type of wedding you would like to have. At this point, the cost or budget should not be a big concern to you.

Next, you have to decide on the budget. The maximum and minimum amount of money that you are willing to spend on your wedding event. The following key points should help you figure out the restrictions on your budget.

  • The number of guests you plan to invite. These will determine the size of the venue and the refreshments offered.
  • The potential wedding location for both the ceremony and the reception.
  • The wedding décor you need.

Once you figured out the wedding date, determine the details such as the photographer and the videographer, the refreshments, the wedding invitations, the hair, and make-up stylists and other particulars. After making this list, decide between the most important ones and the unimportant. Having this in mind, then include them in the wedding budget in the order of importance. Do not hold off in crossing out anything you do not necessarily need since on the wedding day, the bride, the groom, and the vows will take center stage.

In conclusion, it is imperative to narrow down your priorities. If you and your future partner chose different items as your priorities, you could find a way to harmonize the two, and you could both have the wedding that you envisioned and desire. As the wedding date nears, you and the helpers that you have enlisted should take care of the items that you listed in the order of importance. Your priority list will ensure you have an easy time in your wedding planning. It would indeed be a mess if the postage for the wedding invitation were not paid.
