A Smart Tip _ Here's a great idea even before you contact a wedding coordinator. You can create an initial wedding planning checklist during the initial planning stage with your future husband and your family. Ask them to pitch in with the ideas as well as with the canvassing of the major necessities [reservations, catering, flower arrangements, salon, etc.]. You can also do some research on the internet just to get an idea of the pricing as well as the possible needs that you may have not yet tackled. From your accomplished initial checklist, you'll have an idea of how much work should be done and how much money you will need. Just in case you're able to figure out the costing and everything you need for your wedding, you can then decide if hiring a wedding coordinator is still necessary. This tip is ideal for those who are really tight on their budgets because hiring a wedding coordinator will really cost you a lot. But hey, if you have the means, no one's stopping you. The idea is to be prepared and organized so you'll be stress_free on your wedding.
The item listed after the budget on the party planning checklist is usually your venue choice. If you are planning to have the party away from home the venue choice will cost money and will come out of your budget and a time will have to be arranged for decorations and so forth. If your party is going to be at home, and you have to hire a professional to come and clean some unwanted stains out of your rug the parties budget will be affected, making it an important listing in your checklist. Of course, if your home needs nothing besides some freshening up you may leave it off your list for now.
