This is when you start looking through bridal and lifestyle magazines for inspiration and theme to your wedding

  • Pick your wedding party

This is where you decide who would be your maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girl and ring bearer

Create a database to be used throughout the planning. Insert columns for contact info, RSVPs, gift and other information
