Book the venue
Many venues are booked very far in advance, so make sure you get on the ball as early as possible. The earlier you choose a venue, the better. You’ll get the venue you want and everyone will be happy.
Set Your Budget
If you haven’t already, figure out how much you feel comfortable spending. Make sure you save as much as you can and try to stay away from too much debt. Don’t start your marriage in the negative. Plan out your finances and you should be fine.
Announce Your Engagement
Don’t forget to tell everyone the good news! Who doesn’t love a wedding? The incredible food, the open bar, and of course the dance floor! There are many ways of doing this, but mailing out save the dates is probably the most effective. Get creative with it. Use your own pictures or even attach a small gift to the wedding invitation. This is your special day, so shout it out to the whole world. Tell your friends, your family and whoever else wants to know. This is a big deal, making the invitation over the top wouldn’t be a bad thing.
