Now that you've got some of the logistics out of the way, it's time to dive in!! Did you hold back on making any more wedding decisions until you had a rough budget figured out? Or did you start with some of the fun stuff, like figuring out your bridal party! Did you already have your "I do crew" all lined up in your mind?

Which came first for you? Figuring out your budget or your bridal party?

    Bridal party, but I have a smaller bridal party so I wasn't too concerned. I only have 3 girls so it doesn't seem like too much.

    Budget first. We kind of already had our bridal party in mind but we actually still haven't even asked them yet.

    Bridal party; budget has really been an 'as you go' kind of thing. Started with what the venue gave me and worked down from there.

    Bridal party! It wasn’t really a concern for budget since my bridal party is small

    Bridal party since it was really small....and we didn’t have a budget really. We paid for everything ourselves and as an older couple we just did whatever we wanted.

    Bridal Party. Our budget has consistently inched up over the entire planning process.

    Budget first. I waited to have more details before we finalized the bridal party.

    Unofficial bridal party came first. I didn't ask them until we had set a budget and a picked a venue though.
