Congrats to everyone who got engaged over the Holidays! Getting engaged and planning a wedding is a crazy but an incredibly rewarding journey. We often hear the question asked, “I just got engaged, what do I do next?”. So! We thought we would drop these 5 tips!
Enjoy the feeling of being engaged: Seems simple right? Getting engaged often makes you feel like your on cloud nine, so enjoy every moment. Don’t feel rushed to pick a date.
Budget: This is an incredibly important one. Sitting down with your fiancé to figure finances will help you not to overspend. It’s easy to do when planning a wedding.
Pick a Date: We encourage you to pick a few dates. Pick your favorite and have two back ups. Venues often times have dates that fill up fast, so having some back up dates will be helpful.
Choose a Planner: Whether it’s full wedding Planning or Day of Coordination, having a Planner allows you to have an expert in your corner. At the very least, you don’t want your family having to make sure the wedding runs smoothly on your special day.
Create your guest list: Now, more than ever, choosing an initial guest list and having a shortened one is important. Depending on your date, many venues foresee not being able to hold as many guests as they normally can.
All in all, remember to breathe, enjoy every moment and know that at the end, you get to marry your best friend!
