Tips for Wedding Planning

Three Quick Tips for the Newly Engaged

You’ve called your closest friends and family to deliver the good news and every one of them wanted to know when you’ll be tying the knot, what food you’ll be serving at the reception and the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses. Take a deep breath!You don’t have to know the answer to all of these questions right now, next week or even next month. There are three items that we feel are important to get nailed down as early as possible and the rest will simply fall in place.


Create a “wedding email” for yourself and your honey. Google has free gmail accounts available and it will come in handy for wedding planning. This is a great way to consolidate all wedding-related emails into one inbox and it has the added benefit of being able to be discarded after you’re married.


Make a decision about your wedding date based on availability of the ceremony and reception facility. You can take your time setting up meetings to visit various halls and venues and your date will follow. Done!


Make some appointments with various dress shops. This is an item that can take 4-6 months to receive from the day it is ordered so it is important to work on discovering your dream dress as early as possible.

Now just relax! All those little details about colors, menus and who is doing what can wait – for now, enjoy your time on cloud nine with your sweetie!
