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 guest list is a driving factor in deciding such things as the menu and style of meal you will be having. If you have more than ten people on your list, you can probably rule out a five course sit_down meal, especially if you\'re preparing the meal yourself. You have a pretty good idea how many people can fit in your house, so the guest list can also tell you if you can have the party at your house, or not. The budget and the guest list are two essential items to include on your party planning checklist. These two should be the first two items you add because they both can narrow down the focus of your party. The order of what you accomplish on your list isn\'t as important as making sure you have one. Keeping track of what you need to do versus what\'s been done already will help you plan a successful party that everyone will enjoy.
