Planning a wedding can be a lot of fun. It can also be quite stressful. Make the most out of the process with these tips!

1. Figure Out Your Guest List

Before you do anything else, determine how many people you want to invite to your wedding. This will factor in to the venue that you choose and more.

2. Determine Your Budget

It is important to go into the planning process with a budget in mind. If you are looking for ways to cut costs, start with your guest list; eliminating just a few people can save you a lot of money.

3. Make a To Do List

Write out a to do list, but go through it slowly. It is easy to become overwhelmed otherwise. Check one item off before moving on to the next item.

4. Get Everything In Writing

Make sure you get written contracts from each of your vendors. Try to communicate with them by email as well. That way, you have a paper trail if there is a dispute.

5. Give Yourself Plenty Of Time

Start the planning process early. Doing so will eliminate a lot of stress because you will not be rushed.
