“I’m engaged! Now what?” If these words have crossed your mind, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Planning a wedding can seem like a daunting task. But fear not, we’re here to help. Without further ado, welcome to the wonderful world of weddings! Kick back, grab a glass of bubbly and let’s take the first step of the planning process together.
Let's begin by addressing something that may be stressing you out: wedding etiquette. Do you know that there are entire books written about this topic? In full disclosure I’ve never read any of them and while I’m sure they can by very helpful, the sheer words alone make my stomach turn a bit.
The good news is that it’s 2017 and these days the wedding industry not only embraces change, it thrives on it. This means you can breath easy. Simply trust your gut when making decisions because I’ll let you in on a little secret, there are no rules. Choose what makes you happy!
In my experience I recommend working with a wedding planner throughout your journey to "I do". Experts will help you stay on schedule and keep you on budget. This will also allow you the freedom to be involved in the areas that you really enjoy and cruise past the ones you don't. Some areas you may want to indulge in are: cake tasting, dress shopping (of course!) and sending out the invitations.
