Your in depth Wedding Checklist

Your in depth Wedding Checklist : After you announce your engagement

  • Sit down with your families and discuss everything from themes and colours, the number of guests, the budget and establish who pays for what.
  • Start looking for venues early and book as early as possible – including catering if needed.
  • Decide on a honeymoon destination and book early to save costs.
  • Decide whether you want to get married in a Church or Chapel. Find out what your Pastor or Priest requires and if they will marry you outside of the Church, if needed.
  • Get quotes for photographers and videographers as they get booked out early.
  • Look around for your dress – if you see something you love and it is on sale, rather buy it early than run the chance of not getting it. Start setting your in depth wedding checklist. https://www.facebook.com/weddingplanningbyestee
