Right after the engagement. It will start you off in the right direction and keep everyone — the couple, family and planners — working as a team.
Decide what’s important to you. It’s YOUR day! A good planner, a good venue, a good caterer, a good entertainment company will listen to your wishes, create accordingly and won’t push expenditures that you uncomfortable.
Know what you can afford
Sticking to your budget will let you stay in control of your finances and avoid extravagances and expenses you hadn’t planned on.
Choose companies carefully
The quality of service can make a big difference in your big day. Look for experience, reliability and a strong reputation in the industry to ensure all goes smoothly.
