It’s officially engagement season and if you are among the many couples that are participating this year, you may be wondering how to get started. This is officially when the fun starts, albeit at times stressful, where you start building on your foundation as a couple and planning your wedding. If you don’t know how to get started, here’s what you need to know to start planning your wedding!
Tell The World
If you said “yes”, the last thing you likely want to do is keep it a secret from your family and friends. While many of the closest people in your life will get a phone call shortly after it happens, it is still a good to make a formal announcement in case anyone gets left out. Whenever possible, contain your excitement and let your friends and family know in person to make it more personal.
After the announcements have been made, it’s important to sit down as a couple and determine what you both want from the wedding to come up with a general idea. Think of themes and your absolute wants for your special day, but try to leave out any monetary aspects at this point. Just enjoy the time coming up with ideas without worrying about your budget.
Save the Date
Think of a general month or day that you want your wedding to be. It is important to make sure it isn’t too soon to ensure planning your wedding doesn’t turn into a nightmare and no one is able to attend because they didn’t have advance notice. Once you determine a general time frame, nail down one specific date and plan around it.
Build a Budget
While. traditionally, the bride’s parents would pay for the wedding, this has changed in recent years due to the high-cost of a lavish wedding. However, if you want a simple wedding it is definitely doable by not worrying about Instagram level wedding extras. Create a budget and determine what contributions, if any, your parents will be able to make.
