Congrats, you’re engaged! Now what? This is the most exciting, joyous time of your life, but it’s also a whirlwind! The love of your life just proposed, but now you need to start planning. Take a deep breath and embrace the happy times! Once you take a moment to relish in what is to come, it’s time to start planning (slowly) your next steps.
Don’t feel pressured to pick a date right away.
The first question an engaged couple is asked is “when is the wedding”? Don’t let the pressure force you into having an answer if you’re not ready. Research venues you’d want to get married at and work out a date. Be sure to give yourself time to plan the wedding, any moving situations, and honeymoon. There’s always time to stay calm.
Enjoy the process.
Some want to jump right in, some may have already mapped out their perfect wedding on Pinterest, while others would rather not think of all of the details they now need to plan. No matter the type you are, enjoy the process. There is no need to feel stressed to have you dress, the bridesmaid dresses, flowers and linens all picked out within minutes of knowing you’ll be married. Take timeas a coupleto decide what elements will showcase you and your love. Have fun looking at stationery samples and linen swatches and tasting cakes! It is a beautiful and joyful time – don’t miss a minute by stressing!
Hire a planner.
Whether it’s for partial or full wedding coordination, please know that hiring a professional planner will make the entire process easier and enjoyable, and will save you money in the long run. Planners have longstanding industry relationships and will ensure you work with the best people for the best prices. There are countless brides that think that they (or their sorority sister, mom, aunt, or third-cousin) can do everything, but you don’t want to miss or mess up your special day! Trust a professional and you’ll rest assured that your day will be as perfect as your dreams.
