Planning a wedding is an enormous task, that at first you probably will have a brain freeze. But you will soon come to realize that everything does not have to be done at once and can be broken down into smaller tasks. Organizing and having a time plan allows you to manage everything into manageable tasks. Creating a time plan will also save you money, as it gives you time to shop around for the best deals.
Everything about planning a wedding has a price tag to it. By having a time plan you will have time to think things out before you purchase anything or any services. Most people have about one year to plan their wedding, this allows plenty of time. Some people put together beautiful weddings in even shorter time than this. What ever time limit you have to organize your wedding the key thing is to set your priorities, that way you will stay organized and in your budget.
One of your priorities will be to set a time and day for your wedding that will also suit your budget. You should decide on which month and day you want your wedding. Maybe it is a summer wedding you and your partner have always wanted on a Saturday evening. Try to shop around for the venue early as possible as sometimes popular venues get booked early, but also bear in mind that if you change your day to a less popular day like during the week you could save quite a bit of money and still have a popular venue, as Saturday evening is a very popular time for a wedding. The same goes for the season, if you book a popular venue during the wedding season, which is usually from around September to April, it will cost you more, but you could save huge savings if you book it during the other months.
Your wedding date and time of reception can have a huge affect on your budget for everything from catering to the photography bill. If you decide to have your wedding during the most popular wedding season expect to pay more, but if you want to save money and spend it elsewhere then think about changing your date and time for the wedding. But if having your wedding at a particular time and date are important and a priority to you and that happens to be during the popular wedding season then you have to look at other ways to save in order to balance the expensive wedding date.
