Planning a wedding is everything you’ve ever dreamed of: exciting, amazing, love-felt but more often than not, daunting. We see numerous brides who feel they are in over their heads, with everything wedding taking over their lives, and not knowing where to go or who to ask. From the very beginning to the night before the big day, there’s bound to be many questions rushing around your head, so here are some of the most commonly asked wedding questions to help settle some nerves.

How much does a wedding cost?
There’s no set cost. Every wedding and couple is different, with varying wants and needs for their big day. The best way to decide upon your budget would be to come up with an amount you feel comfortable with spending and then break it down into all the different areas.

How do I sort through all the information that’s out there?
As soon as you get engaged, it’s typical for friends and family to want to offer their advice, which may be precisely what you want. But, what’s important is to stay true to yourselves and make sure your decisions reflect your relationship.

Do we need to invite plus ones?
No, you don’t have to. However, if you wish to, or your budget and venue allow for it, it is a nice gesture.

Should I hire a band or a DJ?
A live band starts the evening on a high, however, if budget or musical preference is a concern, simply choose a DJ who will play exactly the music you like.

How do we find the best venue?
Depending on the size of your wedding and location, it’s a good idea to consider several venues for quotes to get started. Once narrowed down, it’s vital to visit these venues in person to get a feel for it and see if it’s for you.

When should I send out my invitations?
Sending out your invitations at least nine weeks before the wedding date, and setting the RSVP deadline for five weeks from your big day will allow for plenty of time.
