4. The type of wedding you want
Once the above decisions have been made, begin thinking about what type of wedding you want. Would you prefer a formal, traditional affair or an outdoorsy festival-style wedding? Your preference will make narrowing down suppliers and venues much easier, as you will have a clearer idea of what you’re looking for. It will also mean you can start planning your decorations, outfits and any DIY elements you want to make. Your budget might also dictate the type of wedding you are able to have, as traditional ones will inevitably cost slightly more whereas low-key, rustic celebrations will be a little bit less expensive.
5. Location, location, location
The location of your wedding is another thing that will make a big difference to your planning journey. You need to decide whether you want to stay local, marry in another city, or even go abroad for your big day. There are lots of factors that can influence this, such as the location of your family members and friends. It’s also worth taking into consideration the fact that certain areas of the UK are more expensive than others; for example, a wedding in the capital is likely to be significantly more expensive than one held elsewhere.
