Here are five major things you should do after you got engaged during Christmas. Well, you got engaged during the Christmas holidays, and you are now starting planning your wedding. Thus firstly, congratulations on your engagement. I’m sure it’s a bit of an overwhelming feeling, but at the same time, it’s such an exciting time for you both. I always get so excited, chatting to my brides about their engagement stories; each one is unique and different. What’s the same with every couple is that they all are radiating with such love and excitement. And mainly right after the Christmas proposal.
Perhaps, after the Christmas proposal, you don’t know where to begin now, so today, I want to talk about what you start with once you rise thinking about wedding planning, right after the Christmas proposal. The nearest thing you definitely should do is open a bottle of Champagne, tell your family and friends, and size and ensure your ring.
Create a budget and do your best to stick to it. Do not get into debt going into marriage. What’s worse than to start a new family with a debt? Weddings can be as large or as intimate as you want them to be. Always be creative, and don’t feel like you need to stick with some traditions if you’re uncertain about them. The only rules at your wedding are the ones you make!
A wedding is a kinda big project, and you can’t do everything yourself. Focus on what you really want and pass jobs onto your bridal party and family members. Everyone wants to help, and I’m sure they will when asked. So if you need help, just ask. They will feel a lot more a part of your big day too.
Hands up, who else loves files and spreadsheets. I am a planner, so I’m one of those always organized, and I love to keep track of things. If you can note what you’re spending and where it will make everything much more effortless in the long run. Also, record who of your bridal party is doing what.
Go to wedding fairs or ask Google for help and meet lots of excellent wedding suppliers. But mostly, ask your friends for recommendations and then do online research. Hire vendors that you absolutely love and trust. They will be a considerable part of your big day, so make sure they’re your kind of people. Don’t forget that as a first you should hire a wedding planner, venue and photographer… in any order. They will help you with the rest.
