From the day you get engaged to your wedding day, there are ways to ensure your planning goes as smoothly as possible and leads to your best day ever! There really isn’t a one-size-fits-all way to plan, but there are key steps that all brides-to-be can take along their own individual wedding path.
Enjoy your engagement: You may want to jump right in and start the guest list or check out florists, but taking stock in this first vital step can help you remember what a wedding is all about: you and your loved one! Have engagement photos taken, celebrate with family and friends or have a special night out with just the two of you so you can connect on this new level.
Share the news: Tell your parents first and foremost and then immediate family members and close friends who you are considering being a part of your special day. Make sure you have told everyone – either in person or via phone or text – who is key in your life before sharing on social media to avoid any hurt feelings.
Preserving memories: Akin to a pregnancy or baby journal, a wedding journal online or with pen and paper can help you preserve the planning and time leading up to your wedding in a way that you can look back on for years to come and share with your future children.
Settle on the when: Pinning down the exact date is truly the first step in the actual wedding planning process. Decor, dresses, venues, flowers, etc. all surround the season of your wedding. Also, make sure to check with family members and expected wedding party members so there are not any conflicts. You don’t want your best friend absent because she is at her cousin’s wedding!
Start early: Spots and services can fill up early and fast so make sure you set a realistic date to get everything booked and planned.
Network of support: Pick up wedding books or magazines for help and inspiration. Pick the brain of a newly-wedded friend or family member. Find resources online from blogs to checklists. Or maybe you would like to work with a professional? Expert wedding planners and consultants do this for a living and can be a vital resource!
