Wedding Planning & Design - FAQ

What are the steps to planning a wedding? 

Once you get engaged, you'll likely start planning your wedding day. The first thing you'll want to do as a couple is decide what matters most to both of you. Is it creating a magical event for your wedding guests in your hometown? Do you want there to be great scenery, food, drinks, entertainment, flowers, or decor? Get on the same page with what matters most – and then, it's time to discuss your budget. 

Every bride and groom's financial situation is different, but having a general idea of your wedding budget will be needed to make any further decisions. One of the first things you'll also need to do is decide on your guest list. The initial list doesn't have to be perfect, but you'll want to know which family and friends you'd like to invite as your list of attendees will affect your next big decision: the wedding venue. 

Once you decide on a location and wedding date, all of the other inspiration and wedding elements will start to come together. You'll now know the season and level of formality for your wedding dress, start to put together inspiration and detail the creative concept board for your florals and celebration, and have the big day come to life with the help of your event team and designers. 

How do I design my own wedding?

If you're a bride or groom who is planning the wedding yourself, Inside Weddings will help you put together your wedding look and offer expert tips and advice throughout the process.
