Dear Newly Engaged Couples,
Are you feeling completely overwhelmed and worried that while you thought this should be the “happiest” time in your life is actually one of the most “stressful”. Well… lemme tell ya, you’re not alone, all couples feel this way right after they get engaged and before they select their venue and lock down their date. I tell all newly engaged couples to take a deep breath and relax, because the very beginning stages of the Wedding Planning process are the hardest.
Reason being, you go from complete elation (We’re Engaged!) to complete exhaustion (Oh, wow…we had no idea how many factors are involved!) Again, hang in there, laying your “Wedding Foundation” is the hardest.
This is the exact reason why you need a Wedding Planner. Most planners offer a complimentary initial consultation to better explain all that’s involved in the Wedding planning process and will go over in detail the differences in planning services they offer.
Prior to your consultation, here are some things to consider:
1.) What time of the year do you have in mind? I encourage you not to get “set” on a specific date if possible.
2.) What type of style are you looking for in your venue? Luxury Resort? Museum? Country Club, Modern? Private Home?
3.) Do you have a budget in mind? Is anyone contributing to your budget, or are you paying for it yourselves? If you have no idea to start, not to worry Wedding Planners will help to educate you on what’s realistic.
4.) What is the approximate size of your guest list?
5.) What aspects of the Wedding are most important to you? Culinary? Design/Décor? Entertainment?
