Season: Decide when you want to get married. If you have been dreaming of an outdoor wedding but don't live in Hawaii or San Diego, January may not be the best month for you to get hitched.
Tradition: Make sure to really do your research on where the tradition came from. Talk to your parents or grandparents....ask them about their relationships and details from their weddings...if there isn't a tradition that you like, start your own!
Location: Maybe he proposed to you in front of your favorite museum or during a wonderful picnic in the park...it's always nice to incorporate those details into where you want to get married. Start early!! Venues book up far in advance and if you have you heart set on a certain place, don't get your heart broken...book early!
Color: This is my favorite! There are so many ways to incorporate color into your wedding. Bridesmaids dresses, shoes, flowers, favors, cake, linens, etc. Just make sure not to get too crazy trying to match the pink dot in the invitation to the pink flowers in the cake topper...that will only drive you insane...enjoy this time!
