If you recently got engaged, you are probably excited and a little stressed thinking about all the work you have ahead of you. Wedding planning is a big undertaking and can make or break your big day. Before you jump headfirst into dresses, venues, and color palettes, here are three things to keep in mind.

Your Budget and Priorities 

Perhaps the most important decision to make before planning your wedding is how much money you are willing and able to spend. Once you know what your budget is, decide which wedding aspects are most important to you. If you care most about the venue and wedding photography Cape Cod, you can spend more money in those areas and less on centerpieces or your cake. Deciding early on what you are want to spend money on and what things you’re comfortable DIYing or going without entirely will ensure you get exactly the wedding you want. 

Your Support System

You will need friends and family and professionals all working together to help you achieve your dream wedding. Think carefully about the people you choose to be an integral part of the planning process. If you have a negative and picky aunt or a jealous friend, you don’t want them to stress you out and bring you down. Surround yourself with people who understand your vision, and bring positive energy to the planning process. 

Your Vision

There are a million tiny decisions that you will need to make as you plan your wedding. It’s easy to get wrapped up in each one and be overwhelmed with decision fatigue. Having a solid vision of what you’re trying to achieve will help you make those decisions more easily. It will also be a reminder to you that the color of the napkins isn’t going to ruin your entire wedding. Try to remember the things that are most important and let go of the rest.
