At first glance, wedding planning may seem like a daunting task - especially if you’ve never been part of one. Not to worry! With these six easy tips, you’ll be armed with everything you need to ensure your wedding planning process goes as smooth as possible.

1. Start with a budget in mind

Start with a budget at the start of the planning process and stick to it. Weddings come in all shapes and sizes. You can have your beautiful wedding no matter the size of your budget

2. Always Remember!

It’s your wedding day. With planning comes a ton of opinions from parents, friends and family members alike. Including them on your decisions is fun but, it should all come down to how you and your fiancé see your wedding unfolding. Don’t lose focus on what you truly want.

3. Don't rush to buy the dress

Don't rush the dress-buying process. Of course, you want to make sure you purchase your wedding dress with plenty of time to make any necessary alterations. But don’t be afraid to explore all of your options to get a feel for what’s out there before committing!

4. The Formals

Compile a roster of friends and family you'd like to capture memories with on your wedding day. Consider collaborating with your wedding photographer to devise a strategy, ensuring that amidst the day's excitement, you don't overlook documenting those special moments!

5. Use checklists

Stay on top of your tasks by maintaining organized to-do lists. Establishing a weekly checklist can propel your wedding plans forward, preventing any delays with vendors.

6. Communication

Anticipate frequent communication with vendors, and allocate dedicated time in your routine for calls and email correspondence. It's advisable to create a designated email account for wedding-related matters to streamline and centralize all communication! At Weddings By Ray we are all about communication.
