1. Envision What Type of Wedding You Want

Think about your dream wedding — is it a formal black‑tie ballroom affair, or an intimate multi‑day celebration in Southern France?

2. Determine Your Budget 

Before making any big decisions, figure out what you have, or are prepared to spend on your wedding.

Are families contributing? What are your wedding priorities? Must‑haves vs. nice‑to‑haves?

3. Hire a Planner

A good planner can show you amazing venues in your style and budget, saving you tons of time and research right from the start.

Vendor referrals from an experienced planner are truly worth their weight in gold.

4. Confirm a Wedding Date and Book Your Venue

Your wedding size and budget will help determine the types of venue you consider.

Once you’ve found a good fit, commit to a date!

5. Hire Key Vendors You’ve Had Your Heart Set On 

Already have a favourite film photographer you’ve been following for the past two years? Reach out and hire them!

Highly sought‑after photographers, videographers, bands, beauty artists, and stationery designers will often be fully booked far in advance.
