Congratulations! You’re engaged! In all the flurry of the excitement, it may be hard to know what to do next. Here are a few essential things to tick off.
Contact your friends and family
There are some things people simply can’t discover via your social media posts or Facebook status updates. The news of your engagement is definitely one of them! Pick up the phone and give your close family and friends a call before making any online announcements.
We know you’ve probably already got the majority of your wedding planned in your mind or on Pinterest, but there is no need to jump right in. Let yourself enjoy being engaged and have fun sharing your news with everyone over the next few weeks.
Pick a date
Once the rush of celebratory dinners and catch ups has slowed down, start thinking about a date. Your date will be the anchor for the rest of your planning so it’s best to choose this before you start anything else.
Start meeting with vendors and venues
Time to start researching vendors and venues and organising meetings with your favourites. Chances are you’ll have a few in mind already! When putting down deposits and signing contracts, make sure you are reading them carefully to ensure you are both on the same page and you know exactly what you are paying for.
Your custom wedding dress
Some brides come to us knowing exactly what they want, others come to us with no idea at all. With Ella’s expertise we can help you create a custom wedding dress that will make you feel like all your dreams have come true, right here in Brisbane. It’s best to organise your initial custom wedding dress consultation at least 8 to 9 months before your wedding.
