You’re engaged, and that’s totally worth celebrating. Round up your family and best friends for a celebratory drink, or have a special date night with your newly minted fiancé if that’s more your style. Remember, don’t jump into planning the wedding right away. Take a week or two to enjoy every moment and let it sink in. 

  • Discuss a date

Once you’ve taken some time to relax in your engaged bliss, you’ll need to start looking for wedding dates. It’s a wise idea to start thinking about it a year ahead as the most desirable wedding dates and venues get booked far in advance. Find out what works for both of you as well as your family.

  • Set a budget

Before you can really move forward with any of your wedding plans, figure out your wedding budget first. Lay out all the wedding expenses and how much they would cost in a spreadsheet. They will give you an idea of what you want to splurge and where you want to save to make your budget work.

  • Draft your guest list

The next important step once the budget is set is to come up with a guest list. Think about all the people you’d like to share this special day with. Start off by listing down the names of everyone you could ever imagine attending your wedding. Then, start trimming the list until you reach a real number. The main factors that should play into this decision are your budget and the venue size. 

  • Hunt for a venue

Now that you have your budget and guest list settled, it’s time to do venue hunting. Do some research online first, or if you have a place in mind, give them a call to get more information on pricing and availability. When researching and visiting venues, make sure to select a location that feels right and has the atmosphere you’re looking for!
