Congratulations... you’re getting married!
You are about to plan the biggest party of your life and you’re probably wondering where to start. We suggest starting with the budget, this will help determine the rest of the decisions you make. On pages 26 and 27 you’ll find Planning Your Wedding Budget, an article that spells out step- by-step how to figure a budget for your wedding, whatever the size. The Countdown on pages 10 and 11 is a timeline with a breakdown of when you should be taking care of each detail for the 12 months leading up to your big day. The next step should be to plan the guest list...this can be one of the most complicated aspects of planning a wedding. The article Planning The Guest List, starting on page 94 gives some simple planning techniques to help figure out who to invite.
