First 10 Steps for Wedding Planning
1. Enjoy Being Engaged
Kiss each other a thousand times. Jump up and down saying, "We're engaged!" Stare at the engagement ring. Take the time to write down in detail how you got engaged.
2. Tell Your Parents
Tell your parents before anyone else. Both of you should be present - they'll have a chance to see your happiness up close, look at the ring, and start talking about the wedding.
3. Purchase a Journal If You Don't Already Have One
This will be a time of ten thousand moments you won't want to forget. The journal you keep while planning your wedding will not only help you through this time, but it will be something you cherish for the rest of your life.
4. Announce Your Engagement
Tell everyone the good news! There are many ways of doing this, and no way is more correct or better than another.
5. Set the Date
One of the most important decisions you will make as you plan your wedding.
6. Set the Tone of Your Event
This is the time to decide if you're having a formal wedding, a casual affair, or a theme wedding.
7. Set the Budget
Look at your finances and figure out how much you already have in savings, and how much you can save each month.
8. Choose Your Attendants
As your attendants do a lot more than just stand next to you on the day of the wedding, now is the time to get them involved.
9. Start Looking for Venues for Ceremony and Reception
Many venues are booked a year in advance, so the further in advance you start looking, the more likely you are to get the time, date, and cost that you've planned for.
10. Get Support
The successful bride and groom do not plan their wedding alone. They get help from professionals, respected publications, or trusted friends who've planned their own weddings.
