Congratulations, You're Engaged!
As you gaze at your new ring while in the warm embrace of your fiancé, your mind begins to wander… “There’s so much to do!” you say to yourself. Here are a couple of tips to start planning the wedding of your dreams.
Shout from the Rooftops
Seize the day! This is a big milestone in your life and you deserve to bask in all its glory. Embrace the inner princess in you and treat yourself to a mani and pedi, or even have a spa day with your hubby-to-be.
Pinterest is all the rage right now. If you have an account, then create a Wedding board and start pinning some ideas! You could also utilize Google and search for all the latest celebrity wedding trends, themes, floral arrangements, etc. Take advantage of your married friends or even just sit down with your fiancé and start brainstorming. It’s always exciting to dream, but it’s also easy for your eyes to be much bigger than your bank account. If you want an extravagant wedding, then you must make sure your wallet can support it.
Come Up with a Budget
It is very, very easy to rack up your wedding bill. Keep your head on straight and know what you absolutely want such as; floral arrangements, DJ, and a photographer, and know what you can live without such as; personalized napkins, pipe and drape behind head table, uplighting, etc.
Vendors and Venues
Reaching out to vendors and venues may at first be an intimidating experience but don’t let that get to you. Instead, be prepared with a series of questions and concerns; know what your budget is and what kind of wedding ceremony/reception you want. Please also keep this in mind – it is so easy to compare price between venues and vendors, however, you must also consider the value of the product or service they are offering before comparing price. Sure, Venue A may be cheaper than Venue B, but Venue B may have more perks included in the price such as early access for set up, décor to accent your floral centerpieces, cake cutting service, etc. You may be surprised that venues and vendors fill up quite quickly so move fast!
Find THE Dress
You’re probably wondering why finding your wedding dress is the last tip. Many newly engaged brides immediately jet to David’s Bridal or other stores to find the wedding dress of their dreams and forget about all other logistical details like finding a venue. Your perfect wedding dress will be waiting for you – but your venue and vendors won’t!
Wedding planning should be enjoyable rather than stressful so make sure you squeeze in time for relaxation throughout your planning process.
