2. Wedding Date

After you have set the budget, choose a wedding date. Start by selecting a good month that will work best for you and your fiance(e). Make sure that you give yourself enough time to organize your wedding. Factor in too your wedding guests that are out of town - allow them time to make their own plans in relation to your wedding.

3. Wedding Ceremony Location

Next step will be the wedding ceremony location. Nowadays, wedding ceremonies can be held just about everywhere. Whether you want a traditional church wedding or an outdoor wedding you need to book your location ahead of time.

4. Wedding Reception

This is the part that everyone remembers the most. You don't need to have an elaborate and extravagant wedding reception for it to be memorable and fun for you and your guests. Keep it simple yet elegant.

5. Guest List

Make your wedding guest list small, personal and meaningful. A small and intimate celebration of your wedding with close family and friends who sincerely care and love you is the best way to make your wedding memorable.

6. Wedding Attendants

Choose your wedding attendants carefully and inform them ahead of time. You want to give them enough notice to plan for your event and to be financially ready.

7. Avoid Extras

Those little extra things can all add up and before you know it, your intentions of keeping a small and simple wedding will be no more. It doesn't matter if everyone else is making out-of-this-world favors or having ice sculptures. Do what matters to you and don't worry about the rest.

The beauty of a simple wedding is that it helps everyone, from the bride and groom to the guests, focus on the point of the event rather than getting lost in the details of it.
