I hope you’re all having a fantastic week! I cannot believe how quickly time is flying- like guys…it’s November, how? That means that for any of you newly engaged couples, you’re going to start having those moments of panic and stress and you’ll think you need to be doing something wedding related every waking second! Well STAAAP!
The first and only thing you should be doing after you get engaged is enjoying the moment, showing off your ring….and reading this blog! (wink, wink). But seriously, relishing the fact that you are engaged and realize that you will have loads of time to organize and plan- so relax.
I came across this article called 100 Wedding Tips http://www.bridesmagazine.co.uk/inspiration/iconic-galleries/2011/12/100-wedding-tips/gallery#!photo1 and as I was reading through it, I thought…this needs to be in a book or Newly Engaged Guide because it is nailing every single important point. Any couple I have ever met, usually starts off our convo with ‘I don’t know what I’m doing’…which is when I pipe in with ‘that’s okay, I do!’ Now mind you, being a wedding planner I should know about most of these tips, however, for all those couples out there that want to execute their own planning independently, using these tips as a guide is key!
I know I’ve mentioned it before, but my little sister who just got engaged has been a rockstar. She started off knowing her budget, what she wanted/didn’t want and the look she was going for. Weddings can be so funny because they bring up all those awkward, unwanted questions like ‘Who do we invite?’, and ‘Who is paying for What?!’ Luckily my sister was aware of these awkward convos that sometimes have to happen so when it came to my advice, she was well ahead of the game.
These tips not only touch on every single wedding tradition, but they give you a little direction as to which route you might want to take when executing and planning your wedding! We all have a little planner within us- so tips are always welcome!! Give it a read, and hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
How friggen cute are they!!!! This is my sister…enjoying her engagement!!
