You may want to get a filing system so that you can keep track of all documents such as contracts, licenses, and other paperwork.
You will also have to decide on what kind of wedding that you want. Do you want a traditional styled wedding or do you want something more modern? The DJ or band that you hire should reflect this choice also. Try asking around for a good DJ or band so that you can hire the right kind of people for the job.
