The holidays are a big time of year! Not only are people preparing and celebrating the holidays but also celebrating an engagements!
Did you know that they typical engagement season is from Thanksgiving through Valentine's Day? The most popular day to pop the question is Christmas Day with Valentine's Day as the runner up.
If you do become engaged this holiday season and move that fantastic relationship of yours to that next level, you may be wondering "Oh my gosh! What do I need to do first?"
1st) Congrats! I'm so excited for you! Celebrate! Relish in the delicious moment!
2nd) You will be so excited that you may want the whole world to now. I definitely suggest that before announcing your exciting news on social media, tell the people most close to you first. Could be your parents, siblings, best friend. Give them the honor of letting them know of your news. After all of the VIPS are notified, blast the announcement far and wide on social media.
3rd) Talk about your wedding timeline with your future spouse. You definitely want to be on the same page. One of you may be thinking fall wedding, the other dreams of a beach wedding thinking year. You will definitely want to know where each of you stands in regards to when you would like to get married. Talk about who you two may want in your bridal party should you even want one.
4th) Secure the big 3-your venue for ceremony, venue for your reception and your photographer. Those 3 vendors book up fast and usually far in advance. You want to LOVE your venues and you want to LOVE your photographs! The other vendors are important but can usually fit your date into their schedule little further along in your planning.
Enjoy the process! Give yourselves plenty of time so that you can relax and enjoy. It can all be smooth as butter. When you hire vendors who know what they are doing, you will be in good hands.
