Wedding Planning:4 Steps to Get Started

If you're just beginning the wedding planning process, you must have thousands of questions and ideas breezing through your mind at all times! Yes, there are numerous things to consider and plan, but don't worry our wedding planners at Velas Weddings have created a handy wedding checklist to help relax your mind and get organized for your big day.

Depending on the kind of wedding you are organizing, the time needed to plan a luxury beach wedding may vary. A small simple wedding could be planned in just 3 months, while a larger more elaborate wedding may take up to 2 years of advanced planning. In order to plan the destination beach wedding of your dreams, we recommend beginning the planning process approximately 1 year in advance; this time frame will help you as well as your attendees plan for the vacation!

Here is a practical wedding checklist to get you started. We've thought through the beginning stages so that you and your luxury wedding planner, can set the dates and deadlines for each one.

1. The Date

The wedding date is the most important as it determines the time frames for all the Big Day preparations.

2. The Budget

The budget for your wedding is the second step as most of your decisions will depend on this.

3. Book The Venue

Most wedding venues will need to be booked 6 months to 1 year prior. Once it's booked you will have the confidence to continue with the wedding planning.

4. The Guest List  

Clearly your guest list will change over time as you find out that some guests can or cannot attend, especially if you're planning a destination beach wedding, it's important to know the guest count in advance.

Once you've defined these four wedding planning essentials, create your own personalized calendar of dates and deadlines alongside an experienced luxury wedding planner who can help to give you more detailed recommendations along the way.
