  • Venue. The bride and groom need to agree to the wedding venue. Also, it’s important for them not to forget about the decorations and wedding favors.
  • Cake. Both the bride and groom should decide on their wedding cake together. The wedding reception menu (options for celiacs, vegetarians, or people with lactose intolerance) and desserts.
  • Wedding bands. This is also something that both the bride and groom must choose together.
  • Guestlist. This is undoubtedly the most tedious wedding task, as well as the seating chart.
  • Photography and music. The music that will be played, if you’ll hire a DJ, the photographer, and if you’ll have a photocall are aspects both bride and groom should decide on together.
  • Honeymoon. It’s essential to organize it in advance. You can take a day off after your wedding before going on your honeymoon, go straight to it after the wedding reception, or leave it for later.
  • You also have to think about if you only want a civil marriage or also want to get married in a church.
