Pop the champagne and pour the bubbly, you’ve just received a ring! What’s next? Before you dive into your wedding planning process, take a moment to fully celebrate your engagement. It is okay to not have answers to your family and friends’ never-ending wedding questions. Do not overwhelm yourself by pinning every thought on Pinterest, jumping into dress shopping, or scheduling venue tours. Give yourself the opportunity to settle into the next stage of your relationship. When you feel ready to move forward with your wedding plans follow our step-by-step guide below!
Determine Your Vision
Ask yourself the following questions:
1. Do we want a large or intimate celebration?
2. Who do we picture at our wedding?
3. Where in the world do we picture our celebration taking place?
4. Do we have a preference for an indoor or outdoor wedding?
5. What is most important to us when planning our celebration?
Have a conversation with your fiancé about how you envision your wedding day. Confirm you both are committed to the vision of your celebration before moving forward.
Outline A Budget
Determine who is contributing to the budget
Individuals who contribute financial investment towards your wedding typically request decision-making power. If your family, along with you & your fiancé, are contributing to the wedding then determine if they have preferences on how their contribution is used.
Determine a budget range
Before researching wedding industry costs determine a range of financial investments that you feel comfortable spending on your wedding.
