Party planning requires a bit of work and effort for the party host. The most effective thing that you can do for yourself is to write a party planning checklist of all the things that need to be accomplished and when you need to have them completed.
Brainstorm _ get your ideas formulated and organized on paper. Consider things like small wedding ideas, unusual wedding venues, outdoor wedding ideas. Budget _ establish your financial limits and guidelines. Consider a cheap wedding reception as a means to save money. Guest List _ Who do you want to participate in this special event. Reservations _ Book the Venues. Vendors _ Interview and get contracts on flowers, food, photographer, musicians, baker, etc. Wedding Dress _ Provide time for up to four fittings for your bridal gown, just in case. Bridesmaids _ Sizes, colors, styles, fabrics and multiple fittings will all take time. Invitations _ Lots of choices. Consider the wedding reception invitation wording if you\'re making your own. Or, customized wedding invitation text if you\'re going to buy them.
