If you’re newly engaged and wondering where to start with your wedding planning, you’ve come to the right place. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but having a checklist and timeline of what tasks to tackle at each stage can help you stay organized and on track.
Our wedding planning checklist covers everything from pre-wedding planning to after the celebrations are over, so you don’t miss a single detail.
So take a deep breath and get ready to start planning the wedding of your dreams. With our comprehensive checklist, you’ll have everything you need to make your special day unforgettable.
Once You Get Engaged
Now that the excitement of announcing your engagement and planning your engagement party has died down, it’s time to start thinking about your wedding day. Here are the first five things to do once you’re engaged and ready to start wedding planning.
Celebrate with Your Loved Ones
Before you start wedding planning, take some time to celebrate with your loved ones. Whether it’s a small gathering or a big party, this is a special time in your life that should be celebrated with those closest to you.
Draft Your Guest List
Your guest list will determine the size of your wedding and, subsequently, your budget. Start by creating a draft guest list and categorizing guests by “must invite,” “nice to invite,” and “can live without inviting.” Remember, the more guests you invite, the more expensive your wedding will be.
Decide on Your Budget
It’s important to have a budget in mind before you start planning your wedding. Talk to your partner about how much you’re willing to spend and prioritise what’s most important to you. You’ll also get a good idea of how much things cost once you start enquiring with venues and suppliers.
Decide on Your Wedding Style
Whether it’s a dedicated wedding venue, villa or beach wedding, decide on the type of wedding you want. Once you have a clear idea of your wedding style, you can start looking for venues, vendors and décor that match your vision.
Start Sending Venue Enquiries and get viewing!
Start making enquiries at wedding venues that pique your interest. Ibiza is a popular wedding destination, so it’s important to do this early as sought-after dates go quickly! Send out your initial enquiries for the dates you’re after, how many people, etc. Once you’ve found some that are suitable for your budget and style, arrange viewings. View some online/via video call and in person from different locations will give you a good idea of what it is you really like, and what styles of wedding venues work with your budget.
The Finer Details
Once you have the above covered, it’s time to start planning the finer details of your wedding. Here are some additional items to add to your wedding planning checklist:
Book Your Wedding Venue and Vendors
Once you’ve narrowed down your wedding venue options, it’s time to book your venue and vendors. Selecting the right vendors is crucial to the success of your wedding day.
We recommend working with our trusted vendors, who are familiar with our venue and can provide excellent service. From photographers to DJs, florists to caterers, we can recommend the best in the business to make your wedding day unforgettable.
Choose your wedding theme and decor
The theme and decor of your wedding should reflect your personality and style as a couple. From rustic and bohemian to modern and chic, we’ve seen it all at Kazamor. Our recommended team of suppliers can help you create a stunning backdrop for your ceremony and reception.

Send Out Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations
Once you have your guest list finalized, it’s time to send out wedding invitations. Be sure to include all of the important details, including the date, time, and location of your wedding, as well as RSVP information.
Plan your Wedding Timeline
Planning a timeline for your wedding day can help ensure everything runs smoothly. From the ceremony to the reception, we recommend that you plan every moment of your special day. We can advise on a recommended running of the day, or if you’re working with one of our recommended weddings planners, they can also arrange this with you.
Choose Your Wedding Attire
Start shopping for your wedding outfits, including your wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and suits for the groom and groomsmen.
