Following this, the third part of your planning should be to define the style of your wedding.

According to the style, whether it is something very fancy or minimalist, you could still adapt your budget – and you would be on time – and at the same time visualize the space necessary for the ceremony and reception.
Find a venue for your ceremony and reception, and set your date!
Be reasonable A lot of venues and vendors book several months to YEARS in advance. Your dream venue may not be available, so be open to looking at places you might not have originally considered.
Take the time to find the perfect one because if you have to take something into account it is that you must adjust the decoration to the space because it can no longer be modified to fit your ideas.
