In addition to the decorations, there are many small aspects to consider when it comes to planning a good wedding. The first thing that needs to be determined is the date. Setting a date must be done before any other aspects of the reception can continue. A location will need to be booked, and depending on its popularity, the waiting time can be a year or more.
