There is a lot wedding planning websites and apps, that will help you and make things easy. Most of them let you set out a budget, create ticklist, shows venues and list of vendors near to you, make a guest list and allow for guests RSVP on it and much more!

You can create a wedding website and post information on it, so you don’t have to answer a bunch of questions.
Some of them are totally free.

Timing

Pick a date. You should consider what season and year you’d like to get married. How long it will take you to prepare, do you need time to save some money or free up time for a wedding and a honeymoon?

Remember, a lot depends on the region and whether the wedding will be inside or outside.
