Your “YES!” leads to chain of activities that will eventually result in a wedding day but before all that starts, take a deep breath and soak in the excitement.
Five things to do after you said "I do!"
- Announce the engagement to the family
- Post the ring selfies
- Plan an engagement party
- Image your dream wedding and consult with family
- Hire a wedding planner
Once the excitement has settled you can start discussions about the type of wedding you want to have and where. Chat to your nearest and dearest to ensure everyone are on the same page. This is important time to address the budget and establish your spending power.
Contact a wedding planner for a consultation before you set your heart on a specific date or a location. As soon as you have an idea of what kind of wedding you wish to have, it’s time to consult with a professional.
There are a number of important factors to consider when planning a wedding - location, ideal time fo the year, numbers, your styling direction and budget.
And one more thing, one thing will happen for sure – as soon as you announce your engagement, you will be bombarded with advice and horror stories. Be polite and just listen to the ones that make sense. If you have any questions, your wedding planner will be the right person to clarify them for you.
