Wedding Planning Tips for Newly Engaged Couples — How to Get Started

Updated: Mar 30, 2022

Does this sound like you: “I just got engaged… now what do I do?”.

Never fear you are not alone; every day I see newly engaged couples asking this same question. Today I will list out 3 tips to get you successfully started on your wedding planning journey.

1. Enjoy the moment! Getting engaged is such an exciting time, so first things first take a step back and just soak in the moment. I remember when I first got engaged, I was so excited and wanted to jump right into planning. Looking back now, I wish I had taken a little more time to slow down and just enjoy the moment.

The engagement period is a busy time. Before you jump into full planning mode reflect on the things that truly matter; you and your fiancé getting ready to embark on the greatest adventure that will last a lifetime!

2. Answer the following basic questions: Budget, Guest Count, Preferred Date, and Theme/Color Scheme. No other piece of planning can successfully take place without the answers to these questions. Before even looking at a venue or vendor it is imperative that you have a basic plan for the vision for your wedding and a set budget to bring it to life.

Being engaged is exciting; it is easy to get swept away with all the options for venues and vendors. To keep things from getting out of hand it is crucial to know your fundamental information first.

3. Communicate with your partner BEFORE diving deep into planning. Discuss both of your needs and desires for how you want the wedding to be. If your fiancé is anything like mine was, he may just say “whatever you want is fine” and this step will be a breeze. However, if you are finding that your visions for the wedding are completely different find areas where compromises can be made so that the day will reflect both of your personalities. Create a clear vision so that you can be united in the planning process.

Planning a wedding is time consuming work and can quickly turn into a disorganized jumbled mess. By setting up a clear plan and establishing open communication with your partner before making any large decisions you can lay a solid foundation that will help make wedding planning an organized, fun, and relaxing experience.

Happy Planning!
