What was the very first decision you made about your wedding? Was it then when or where? Was it who would be in your wedding party? Did you have your first dance song already locked down?

    Definitely the season, which was surprisingly the hardest.
    Once we had that picked out the rest fell into place rather easily.

    We made a draft of our guest list and dwindled it down, figuring out who we really wanted at our wedding. Afterward was our venue.

    It was our officiant. She is a very dear family friend of 26 years who did both my brother's and my sister's weddings. I knew I wanted her to do my "someday wedding" before I'd even met my fiancé!

    If it was going to be an outside or indoor at a hall. Narrowed that down and then other decisions came with it

    Our venue was first! We had seen the venue prior to being engaged and fell in love with it and we knew we had to have it!

    Location.

    Before becoming engaged, we both wished to get married in the mountains or on Vancouver Island, in a small intimate ceremony. Once we got engaged, we realized that wouldn't be possible. So we decided to get hitched close to our hometown instead.

    We're definitely doing this for our guests, and not for us, which I'm sometimes bitter about. Especially when people complain about small things, I just want to tell them that if it wasn't for them, there wouldn't be an accessible ceremony/reception in their area! *deep breath*

    Was to make it small, very very small in the mountains. Everything just fell together from then.

    We picked our date first (we're getting married on our anniversary!), and then the bridal party. Then my shop-a-holic fiancé bought his suit! I haven't tried on a single dress yet, but he already has his suit, lol. We've picked a theme, and the band since they are friends of ours.

    The season and month! We wanted a fall wedding and thought September 14th was perfect. Then we found the venue online and we NEEDED to be there. So we called them up, they were free that weekend, and we booked it. So happy.

    I would think that the venue was our first thing we booked but we did go into it with a few dates in mind... had they not been available for the dates we wanted we would have still went with them though, so I'll say the venue.

    First the date. (Based on a number of factors including when we wanted to start a fanily)

    Then the venue.

    It was either the date or what city we'd get married I can't remember which came first lol seems so long ago.

    For us, we could've got married where we live (Thunder Bay), his hometown (Leamington), or my hometown (London). We eliminated Thunder Bay pretty quickly since 95% of guests would have to fly to get there so it was a toss up between the two hometowns. We ended up with London since it would be more central to more people.

    Our first decision was venue. Once we knew that, we narrowed down the date. We were very open to dates, all we wanted was sometime in the fall!
