Hooray! You're Engaged!

The winter holidays are filled with family and love, so it’s only natural that this time of year is among the most popular for engagements. If you’re a lucky couple who recently got engaged, congratulations! As an engagement gift to you, we’re going to share the first five steps you should take to get off to a great start planning your special day:
1. Reach out personally to your friends and relatives to share the big news. the big news before your announce your engagement on social media. This is also a great time to think about wedding attendants that you would like to be involved.
2. SET the BUDGET. The first big step of wedding planning is setting the budget. You can ask your parents if they intend to contribute anything to the wedding so you can include that money in the final amount. Once that number is set, DON'T GO OVER!
3. Finalize your guest count. Yes, we mean finalize. Before you know how much money you can afford to spend on any of your wedding services, you need to know how many guests you’ll have to feed.
4. Get a wedding planner or utilize a planning resource. Whether you work with a professional planner or go the DIY route, stay organized and on a timeline to make the planning process as stress-free as possible.
5. Find a venue. It may seem more logical to set a date before selecting a venue, but being flexible on your wedding date can actually help you find the perfect venue because you’re willing to book your wedding when the venue is available. The venue may also offer discounts on certain days of the week or times of the day, so your flexibility can allow you to take advantage of that.

These five steps will help you jump-start your wedding planning. We hope that you enjoy this special time of being engaged. The big day will be here before you know it!
