Top 10 things to do after you get engaged

  1. Sit down with your fiance and talk about the wedding you both want.  (not your parents, you!). After getting your ideas in order have a talk with both sets of parents and express your wants for the day and then ask them how they feel about it and what they envision.
  2. Guest List comes before venue selection – you need to know what size space you need.
  3. A reception facility will be the largest part of your budget, around 40% of the total budget.  You may choose to view a few locations before locking down a budget. These visits may help you nail down your budget as well.
  4. When visiting a venue also keep in mind that pictures you have seen of weddings here may have had a lot of rental & decor items brought in to make the space look that way.  These items add money to your budget.
  5. Now that you have some educated pricing, come up with a budget before signing a contract with any vendor.
  6. A reception facility will also give you great referrals of professionals that have done great work there and are trustworthy.
  7. Consultations with planners are complimentary.  Talk with them. They work in these venues, they know.
  8. Take your time with selecting a bridal party.  There is no rush here! People tend to ask people in excitement before making a plan together with your fiance.
  9. Great vendors book up fast.  Do not wait. Many vendors will only take a limited amount of weddings per day.
  10. A photographer should be first on your list after your venue.  Select your photographer so you can schedule your engagement shoot. This way you can have a picture ready for your Save the Dates to go out within 9-12 months of the wedding date.

This info is worth everyone’s attention. When can I find
