Make the official announcement.
You need to take this seriously. Getting married or the first aspect of letting people know that you are getting engaged is some serious business and something that you should not take lightly at any point in time. You can go low key on this by just posting it on a print ad in your local newspaper or you can opt to throw a major party to let your closest friends and relatives know about you and your partner planning on tying the knot. Be careful about posting a status update on your social media feed.
It should be by the time that most of the people closest to you and to your partner already know about it so that they don’t feel left out and so that they don’t feel like they’re just part of the rest of the crowd on your social media pages who probably don’t even know you and your partner. This is a great start to your wedding planning session. You might also want to bring a wedding photographer Berkshire along for the engagement party and have an engagement photo shoot for your reception slideshow and for the save the date invitations.
Think about your dreams.
If you have been dreaming of a particular theme or a particular location for the wedding, now is the perfect time for you to bring them all to light. This way, you get to have something to run with and something nice to look into at some point or so. This is the perfect time for you to take stock of whether your dreams for the wedding are realistic or not because now, you have other people to check into what you have been dreaming of such as your wedding photographer Berkshire and your wedding consultant or your wedding planner. No inspiration is too much. You can always shave the idea down a bit if it gets a little impossible to follow through with it but then again, you have to understand or know right out that it is always worth the try so figure out what you can do about it.
Have a ballpark timing for the wedding date.
A ballpark timing will give you a timeline that you can go through with or that you can use to construct your task lists around. You need to know or understand what you are getting into in order for you to be able to make this work. There has to be a sense of urgency in what you are trying to do so far. When you have everything mapped out down to a T, you can be rest assured that the rest of the things you need to go through with for the wedding planning session will follow through accordingly.
Talk about money.
This is something that you would have to prioritize one way or the other. This isn’t just based on you or based on what you are willing to spend. Your partner needs to be in on this too and talking about how much money you are both willing to spend will take care of that.
