just engaged

If you just got engaged, Congratulations! We know you are excited and may do a number of things from calling family to doing cart wheels. But don’t get overwhelmed. Below are our top things to do to get your wedding planning into high gear:

1. Share The Great News – Contact all the persons important to you first before even sharing it on social media. You don’t want your parents, BFFS and siblings hearing it from other or reading it on social media first.

2. Get a Manicure ASAP – You fantastic ring and hands will be on display for the next few weeks and you want it to look your best.

3.  Share Your News with the Rest of The World – If you are a private person you family and close friends may be enough but if you are not and want to share the fantastic news with everyone go right.

4. Wait 2 weeks to 1 month before you start planning – Let the news and everything sink in first. Enjoy this period. There is enough time for wedding planning.

5. Get It Sized – If you ring is fitting correctly great if not you can get it sized.

9. Decide if you will be bringing on a Wedding Planner to help with planning your wedding. You will need to do your research and ask for references and set up appointments. For the vendor referrals alone, a wedding planner is totally worth it. Check out the Reasons Why You Should Hire A Wedding Planner

10. Create your wedding planning website, you can use any of the templates or even start with something like Pinterest to figure out what you want and what your wedding style is. You can set your board to private as you want to avoid sharing your big day stlye amd decor with everyone. You can invite your wedding planner, mom and bridesmaid but limit the many views of what you should and should not be doing.

11. The Wedding Dress – If you are planning more than 12 months in advance you don’t have to make a mad dash to the stores just yet. But you want to start looking to see what you would prefer for your wedding day style before you make a final decision.

Along with working your planner and the tips above you should be well on your way. Congrats again and happy planning.

8 Great Reasons Not To Have a Bridal Party

IMG_8674

Many couples are choosing not to have a bridal party for a variety of reasons. Think of all the movies with bad behavior from bridal party members for various reasons or do we even need to go to the movies to see sometimes the challenge of choosing certain friends over others to be members of the bridal party. Sometimes it may be more pain than pleasure. Here are a few reasons you might choose to do the same:

1. Budgetary Contraints – Having a bridal party can be expensive and if you are on a tight budget you may not want to spend money on flowers, or hair and make up and other expenses that may come with having a bridal party.

2. You Don’t Want To Hurt Anyone’s  Feelings – Having to choose a group of friends over others can be a challenge and may ruin long term friendships. So some couples opt not to put themselves under pressure to make that choice or to hurt any of their friends.

3. You dont want to obligate your friends to spend money for your wedding – Being apart of a bridal party can be expensive and many couples have opted not to force or have their friends and family members spend money on purchasing dresses, suits and other expenses that comes with being a member of their bridal party.

4. You are Having a Small Wedding – You may be planning a small wedding and having a bridal party with half the guests standing beside you may look weird.

5. You Want All Your Guests to Have a Good Time – You dont want your friends to feel pressured to give speeches, to spend money or to get the feeling that you are giving them work to do.

6. Its Your Second Marriage – You may have done the big bridal party the first time around and this time you want it to be low keyed an intimate.

7. You want the wedding day to be stress free – Sometimes having to worry about id a bridesmaid or groomsman is on time and did what they were suppose to do or even just the sheer confusion of so many persons being in the room with you on your most special day you may opt for peace and tranquility and some alone time.

8. No Bridal Party Equals Less Planning – Nobody but you and your finace to coordinate with. No waiting on the bridal party to start the rehearsal etc.
