At this stage, it is important to start a wedding binder or folder. For inspiration, go through bridal, food, gardening, fashion, and design magazines and ideally research on Pinterest and Instagram for more free inspiration. You also need to come up with a budget and create a guest list. The location plays a very important role. Lately, a destination wedding in Greece is considered to be among the top ones! Especially summer island weddings at locations as Crete, Rhodes, Santorini, and Corfu. Hire a wedding planner if necessary, and decide on your wedding location.

This is the perfect time to look for a suitable wedding photographer, book the wedding’s entertainment, and choose a reliable wedding caterer. If you are anticipating out of town guests, it is important that you look for available accommodation in the area. You also need to create a wedding website from a reliable provider. The purpose of a wedding website is noting wedding dates, accommodations, travel information, and anything important to the wedding. The links to this are then sent to invitees and other stakeholders.
