Start the conversation on the scariest issues: the budget, the guest list, the venue and the date.
Once you have created a budget you can you move on to your guest list.
Budgeting first will help you decide whether to include people like your well-meaning but overly enthusiastic co-worker, Harry, or not .. ! Make your list of who you want at your wedding, and then ask your families for a list of who they want to invite, (but make no promises)
Think about the style of wedding you want and then what type of venue will lend itself to that look and feel – do you want the beautiful Harry the hirer glass Atrium set on a private property, or The Fairhaven set in a field, or maybe it’s a chic Melbourne venue styled with hire furniture that is design led to compliment your theme?
The Ceremony and reception
Book the church or a celebrant and consider the location for the ceremony. Questions to consider would be - are you having the wedding ceremony and reception in the same venue? Or are you opting for a traditional church ceremony and a reception in a trendy function space? Or outside in a park with guests seated on white or grey timber Willow chairs?
