Getting married is one of the most joyous times in life, but it can also be stressful when trying to plan it all on your own. There are probably a thousand questions buzzing around in your head about planning a wedding reception or the ceremony itself.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about planning a wedding.

 What is the cost of a wedding?

This, of course, is going to vary from person to person, as we all have our own ideas of a fairy tale wedding. Since there is no real way to tell you the cost of a wedding, you need to set a budget that you feel is reasonable. Take all factors into consideration when making your wedding budget. Once you have come up with a price you feel is reasonable, you can start to model your wedding around it. Place concentration on areas that mean the most to you.

Should we have an open bar?

This is a question that only you can answer, as you know your guest. If drinking is an important part of your social group, then you may want to consider it. However, beware of the cost associated with an open bar, as you may want to use this money to enhance other areas of your wedding day.

Should I hire a band or a DJ?

Bands tend to be a nice added touch to a wedding reception. As they can offer a more personal feel to the wedding. However, they do typically cost more than a DJ. Everything points back to your budget and what is most important for your big day.

What elements will make the biggest impact on ambience?

Lighting plays a huge factor when setting the mood for any event. Soft amber lighting can make your reception and ceremony feel more romantic. It also provides a classy feel that is outside of our everyday life.

What is the best venue?

You will need to consider the size of your wedding and go from there. Your venue will need to accommodate your guest. It is always best to gather a few different venue quotes, so you have something to compare.

These are just a few of the things many individuals wonder about when planning a wedding reception and ceremony. Take all things into consideration but always remember your budget will play the biggest role in planning your wedding.
