Just got engaged? Where to start with wedding planning…

Where to start with Wedding Planning?

So you’re engaged? Well, congratubloodylations are in order we think! I hope you celebrated accordingly, whether that was a romantic takeaway as just the two of you or a big boozer with all your bests. But after round 1 of the celebrations are over (I say round 1 because they’re just the beginning, really) where do you start with planning a wedding? Excitement can quickly turn to panic, but don’t worry – we’ve got it covered. Here are our top tips on starting wedding planning!

Work out your priorities

It may seem like quite a heavy task to start with, but working out your priorities as a couple and individuals is crucial in wedding planning. Believe me, doing it early can solve you a whole host of problems down the line. Sit down and candidly and honestly discuss things such as: What’s the most important part of the wedding for you? What couldn’t you go without at your wedding? What have you disliked about other weddings you’ve been to in the past? How crucial is x to you? If they’re truly how you feel, there are no stupid answers in this. Not even when your partner says the most important thing to them is a meaningful, personalised ceremony, and you say yours is a hot air balloon-shaped bar.

Love is in the air…

If you’ve found yourself on this post then chances are you’ve just said YES! Congratulations!

So, what now!? With all the excitement of getting engaged, usually comes a truck load of stress too. To help you out, we’ve got some top tips to make the most of your engagement, how to get ahead with your wedmin, and tackling the finer details…

Questions, questions, questions…

Before you’ve even started showing off your ring the questions will come flooding in… ‘Have you set a date?’…’Am I invited?’…’How did he propose?’…Everyone around you will be super excited so get ready for your engagement to be the topic of conversation!

If you don’t want to give too much away, or you haven’t made any decisions yet, come up with a blanket statement to use whenever someone comes pestering. Something like “We’re looking at having a Autumn wedding but haven’t worked out the finer details yet” or “We’re just so excited being engaged right now”. They should get the hint!

At this point, hold off inviting anyone or making them part of your wedding party. You can’t really un-ask someone to be your bridesmaid, so really take the time to think about it.
