Where do you start after your engagement?
Well to help you over the next few weeks I’ve pulled together my top hints and tips for you.
It’s an exciting time and I hope that they help you start pulling together the most awesome wedding. And as always if you have any questions just give me a shout!
I had to get this one in there but you need to celebrate!
Throw an engagement party! Go out with friends to celebrate! Arrange an engagement photoshoot (which can also be practice for the big day!). However, you want to do it enjoy this moment.
Start pulling together the style/theme of your wedding
You need to decide who is in your wedding party (or bridal party as its traditionally known).
Will you have a best man, chief bridesmaid, bridesmaids, pageboys and/or flower girls? How many will you have?
Work out how you are going to tell them the good news. There are plenty of ways you can do this. One good example is bridesmaid balloons. Or personalised gifts can give a special touch, for example, if your bridesmaid likes chocolate – ask the question on a personalised chocolate bar!
After you’ve gone through the steps above the first main thing you need to do is start looking at wedding venues. This is one of the biggest decision you will make in planning your wedding day.
There is a lot to consider when choosing your wedding venue so you can check out our blog on this specific area by clicking here.
Finally, its worth remembering that it usually takes around 250 hours to plan a wedding. Sometimes a lot more than this depending on the size and complexity of your wedding day. It is going to take up your time.
Pull in help and assistance where you need it. This can be from friends, family or wedding industry professionals.
If you are tight on time a wedding planner might be the best option for you. They can help you with pulling together your design, identifying venues or suppliers, negotiating on your behalf and taking care of all of the wedding administration. We can often save you money as well!
