5 Things Newly Engaged Couples Need to Do First
You’re engaged! Congrats. We at Hunt Country Celebrations are more than excited for you and wish you the very best. In your euphoria, you’re probably wondering what to do next. Not to worry, that’s why we’ve written this article. Grab a coffee cup and get cozy because we’ve laid out the five things you need to do first after you get engaged.
- Celebrate First
Before jumping into the rigors of your wedding planning, take a moment to bask in the bliss of your engagement. It’ll only happen once in your relationship. And no, this is not the same as the engagement party, we mean a special time between you and your partner where you can savor your engagement before moving on to the next step.
- Get Organized
Figure out an organizational system for your wedding planning next. You see, the more you go on in the planning process, the more ideas, checklists, side notes, and tips you’re going to encounter. You could end up mixing things up if you are not careful. Use your Google Drive, Evernote, a wedding binder, or a calendar app. The plan is to be able to keep track of all things wedding related.
- Think of A Date Range
Based on the current situation of things, you might not know your exact wedding date for a while, but setting a general date range can be very helpful. You’ll be able to gear up with your wedding planning, and it will help give your plan some structure.
- Set Your Budget
Have the money talk. You need to be sure that you and your partner are on the same page where your wedding spending is involved. Agree on your wedding size and then iron out where the finances are coming from. You should be able to come up with a ballpark range when you’re done.
- Write Your Wedding Checklist
Based on the dates you’ve chosen above, is your timeline tight, or do you have lots of time? Piece together, a list that contains details and items necessary to you concerning your wedding. This will help you have a personalized and super focused guideline of what needs to be done and when.
