- Celebrate!!! YES GO CELEBRATE Pop that bottle of champagne, rose, wine, or sparkling water and celebrate with your fiancé! Chances are they have been stressed to the max about how, when and where they would pop the question, so now that it’s done, you NEED to celebrate. Have a fabulous dinner out just the two of you, or go and have a big engagement party with both of your families. However, you two celebrate do it and enjoy every minute!
2. Pick your wedding date
- Now that you have celebrated sit down, just the two of you, and decided on an ideal wedding date. That might be in 6 months, that might be in 2 years, but sit down and be honest about how long you both need to prepare to get married. There are no set rules for how long you need to be engaged but the typical couple is engaged for at least a year before they say “I Do.”
3. Create your budget
- Create a Budget, no matter who is paying for the wedding you need to set a budget that is realistic for all parties involved. You don’t want to make anyone feel funny and you, yourself don’t want to feel funny or even worse resent people. Know that setting the budget is hard for EVERY couple and EVERY family. But in order to plan your wedding and have fun doing so, you need to know your budget before you book anything. When you hire a Wedding Planner they can help you with budget creation and give you real advice on the costs that are involved in a wedding.
