Start The Planning: Wedding Venues are Just the Beginning

You’re Engaged! What Next?

Once you get engaged, there are plenty of things to be excited about. The wedding is bound to be a magical event because it includes you and the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. But the day will be even more special if you plan things just right. There will be plenty of emotions surrounding a new engagement and it’s easy to get swept up in colors, the cake, dresses, and some of the more fun aspects of planning. However, you need to put together a list of top-priority items for the planning process. Here are a few that should start your list off on the right foot.

First, The Wedding Venue

If you already know you want a destination wedding and you have a location in mind, the next thing you need to do is figure out what wedding venue you will use. It’s a good idea to have some basic details in mind before you make a choice. How many guests do you plan to invite? Do you need something larger or something that will be intimate with just a few family members and close friends? Narrowing down size and location will help you figure out which wedding venue is right for your big day.

Second, Research Your Preferences

Start looking at pictures online and in magazines so you can get a taste for the types of wedding extras you like and what you’d prefer to do without. Some brides really want a certain flower while others are more ambivalent. Think about what’s important to you and how to bring those things together. There are plenty of wedding websites out there that can help you find the perfect fit for the look and feel of your own day.

Third, Choose A Date With The Venue

Once you choose a venue, you’ll need to secure a date. If you have a date well into the future in mind, you may be able to get that date without looking any further. If you want something rather soon, you may have to be flexible as to what date you pick. Many couples plan their weddings six months to a year in advance and getting the exact wedding venue they want in a shorter time frame on a particular day can sometimes be a challenge.

Fourth, Enjoy The Process

Before you get any farther down the planning road, make sure you stop and smell the roses—or whatever kind of flowers you want to have at your wedding. This is your big day and you need to enjoy it, even during the planning process. Set up special times with your significant other to register for gifts, go through options together, and just dream about the big day as a couple. The more special you make things now, the better the day will be when it arrives.
