After the man has successfully proposed, it is the time to gear up to prepare for the wedding ceremony. But what the girl should do next? Many women are slightly overwhelmed and excited at this stage. But, it is quite difficult to know where to start. But don’t be panic, because this is perfectly normal. Wedding is a huge investment and can cost about $30,000 in average.
For this reason, it is important to get help from everyone, including family members, relatives and professional wedding planners. Their helps can get us on the right track. We could also spend our time wisely and get organized.
1. Celebrate briefly:
This is a very special moment in our life and it is necessary to celebrate it. Don’t turn it down if our friends offer to hold an engagement party. It’s the time to feel particularly beautiful and happy like a dream princess. This gets us used to becoming a marvellous and glowing bride. We should enjoy all the moment offered to us, especially if they make us happier.
Because before we know it, this happy moment could end very quickly, replaced with steady routine of marriage life, although it isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
2. Decide the right way to have a wedding:
Before we do anything else, it is important to figure out what our dream wedding ceremony should look like. Many couples unknowingly skip this step and they may end up with the kind of wedding day that they are not too happy with. Many couples may start talking about simple excuses like they don’t have enough money or time to plan a wonderful wedding day.
It’s not all about money, but how we can be creative with it. Ask parents ,relatives and professional wedding planners for some good ideas. Many people have exciting wedding day with limited budget, because they are imaginative and resourceful enough to use everything in their surroundings. It is true that planning a good wedding day can be slightly stressful, but all the mental tension will disappear if we know how to do things properly.
3. Determine proper budget:
Planning a budget shouldn’t be scary and we should be quite realistic with it. We should know where these funds should come from. We need to keep in mind about additional sources of fund, as an example parents could contribute and a rich uncle could help immensely. Who knows? However, it is important to be aware about other financial obligations as well.
Young couples also need to consider about repaying student loans and mortgage. We should be comfortable with the amount of money we want to spend for the wedding day. In fact, some couples are able to have an exciting wedding day for less than $20,000.
4. Start your research:
Once we have set the proper date, it is important to immediately secure the perfect venue. We could decide where we should have our wonderful wedding day, it could be in a banquet hall, in a rustic setting on a farm, by the halls, in a garden, in a church, next to pristine lake, and the possibilities are simply endless!
5. Consider free support from professional wedding planners:
Couples who are planning to have a wedding day could be like deer in the headlight. With adequate helps, planning for our wedding day shouldn’t be stressful and emotionally consuming. Some wedding planners provide free consultations, but we can hire them if we need additional service from them.
