The day when you two will bond your souls forever is by all means one of the most significant ones in your life. But when magical after-engagement feelings subside - the question of how to plan a wedding as easily and as possible arises. It is difficult to focus on one thing and distribute time correctly because you need to choose a wedding dress, location, decorations and flowers, host, photographer, and consider many different details.

After the time we spent on a lockdown, with so many plans being ruined, the upcoming year is about to be alive as ever. Parties, celebrations, and weddings are taking 2023 by the storm.

So what do you need to know about the whole thing if you’re planning to set the dream date somewhere in 2023? Take notes, darling, and let’s roll!

So what is “the perfect time” to start planning?

Every wedding, just like every couple, is absolutely unique, meaning there are no strict rules and deadlines in wedding preparation that all newlyweds must follow. Each wedding has its own budget, style, concept, and, by all means, the timing of planning. It's one thing if you’re planning a cozy holiday for a small group of guests, and completely another if you dream of a lavish celebration in the most luxurious venue. Anyway, in both cases, you will have to book a venue and vendors who are booked for at least a month ahead. 

The day of your wedding is beautiful and unique, so the whole preparation thing shouldn’t turn into a race! In the survey conducted among brides, we found out that the optimal time for planning is 12-18 months. During this time, you can easily develop a unique concept and pay due attention to details.

Are you going to plan a destination wedding and need some help? We’ve got it covered! Here’s your helping hand in this task!
