Newly Engaged? What’s next?

The holiday season is one of biggest engagement seasons of the year! Were you one of those lucky couples this year? Are you already overwhelmed thinking about what to do next?  Here is your basic check list for what happens next…

  1. Discuss your budget. Money is a tough topic, but you need to be realistic about how much you or your family can spend on your big day. This will determine what companies you can hire, where you are going to be able to get married, and how many people can come.
  2. Engagement party – you don’t have to have one, but it’s nice if someone offers to throw one for you! This is where you can also ask your wedding party to be a part of your big day.
  3. Consider hiring a wedding planner right off the bat, especially if you are both working professionals. They are there to help guide you along the way in all different capacities from full design and planning, to month of coordination.
  4. Start round 1 of your wedding invitation list. This will help you in picking your location depending on the size of the wedding, or you can see where you need to cut the list down if you find a location that does not accommodate the amount of guests.
  5. Pick your location/date. Visit all different kinds of venues and get the pricing to compare.
  6. Adjust your wedding invitation list accordingly. You can make multiple lists (A, B, C) so that you can add more people as some respond they are unable to come, etc.
  7. Check out websites like weddingwire.com, theknot.com as well as different wedding blogs to get inspiration of what you want to do, and start your wedding website.
  8. Find your dress/bridesmaids dresses. Depending on the dress, it could take months for it to be delivered and you need time for alterations, so the sooner the better in finding your perfect fit.
  9. Engagement photos – usually your wedding photographer will do a package deal to include engagement photos, this way you get a trial run with them, and become more comfortable for those wedding shots!
  10. Save the Dates – Send out 7-9 months in advance.

Happy New Year!

We had such a blast at Disneyland this year for New Years! This was DJ Steve Shanahan’s 15th year rockin in the New Year in front of It’s A Small World. Were you there?
