So, you just got engaged?!
The majority of engagement happen in the Holiday Season... and if you were one of the lucky gals to get that ring in the past few months, congratulations!!!
We know how exciting and overwhelming the engagement and wedding planning process can be... and that's why we are going to help you get started on the right foot!
Remember This Day will be posting weekly blogs each Thursday that highlight important aspects of the planning process. We will touch base on everything from choosing a venue, finding the perfect dress, choosing a color scheme, picking a date, budget-friendly tips and even formulating the perfect timeline for your BIG day!
First things first- you need to take some time to relax and bask in the beauty of your future!! So often we get caught up in the details of wedding planning, that we forget what it is all about- you and your soon to be spouse!! Everyone is probably already asking you if you've chosen a date yet, or a venue... giving you advice and tips and it is quite overwhelming! So give yourself a few weeks to enjoy before throwing yourself into the planning process.
Then, it's time to contact local wedding/event planners. I know, you're probably thinking "I can plan this on my own! I'm very organized and know what I want!" or maybe you have a friend or family member that wants to take on the role of "wedding planner." Be careful when mixing family/friends with a professional vendor role on your wedding day. It can be stressful throughout the process regardless of who is assisting you- and you should never be stressed about your personal relationships. Hire a professional (certified and experienced) wedding planner/coordinator, who knows the industry and can help point you in the right direction.
CONTACT Remember This Day to schedule a *FREE* initial consultation... no strings attached- to learn more about our services (and get some free professional advice/suggestions in the process!)
Next up- speak with your fiance and determine the kind of wedding you envision. Elegant and formal? Rustic and beachy? Modern or Vintage? Inside or Outside? Buffet or Served Meal? Just a few thoughts to get you started on deciding the ambiance you hope to create- and thus eliminating some potential venues that don't have those characteristics. This "vision" will help to guide you throughout the planning process and serve as a reference point if you ever feel "lost" while making any detailed decisions. You will also need a rough estimate of your guest count... and then it's time to start the venue search!!
