You’re Engaged! Now What?

Getting engaged is a huge step to take with your partner and is a time of memorable moments. After you get engaged, you may take the time to tell family and friends the news, post a picture, or throw an engagement party to celebrate. However you honor this major milestone, it can be daunting to consider what comes next. Here are some helpful tips to get you started in planning your timeline of upcoming events!

Set a Budget

First things first—set a wedding budget that you and your partner feel comfortable with. While speaking about money can be stressful, it is crucial to come to a decision before making any other moves. This way, you narrow down your options when it comes to food, drinks, florals, and the venue. These will ultimately be the things you’ll want to set a budget for first, followed by photographers, videographers, decorations, and more. Having a number in mind when it comes to budget will help you stay within your means, avoiding going over.

Set a Date

Once you have settled on a budget, the next step would be to set a date. This often will rely upon the desired location, and this often requires the use of a venue. Finding the perfect venue will depend on your aesthetic and party size, so be sure to correlate these variables with your budget. Once you have found the venue of your dreams, you will have the option to secure the date. Consider your guest list in order to stick to your budget, as well as staying within the capacity of the facility chosen. After this, it might be a good time to send out “save the date” postcards to publicly announce your engagement.

Once you have your budget, your venue, and date set, the festivities leading up can begin. Having a wedding shower before the big day is tradition, but not required. If you choose to have one, don’t forget about that registry! Most of all, use this time to organize your extracurricular vendors, additional options, and to enjoy your engagement.
