Congrats!!  It's such an exciting time!  You want to figure out all the fun details...what your colors will be, who's going to be part of the bridal party, what your first dance will be...but guess what?  Before you jump right on in and start getting stressed by all the little things, you can't forget the most important planning aspect that will help you immensely (believe me! I know!). 

Figure out your budget.

Yeah.  Money.  It can be boring to talk about when you really just want to figure out what flavor cake to have.  It can even be stressful and uncomfortable.  But, I promise you, if you figure out the budget BEFORE you start making any other decisions, it will make your life easier.  To help take one more thing off your plate, I've included links to three different wedding budget planners.  They can be personalized and edited to fit your unique needs (not everyone wants a limo).  These planners break down all the little details that you might otherwise forget while planning.
