A wedding will probably be the biggest and most involved party either of you have ever put together, even with COVID-19 and all the different gathering structures
1. Enjoy Being Engaged
Take a moment to realize what does it means. Take the time to write down in detail how you got engaged. Contemplate the wonderful things ahead of you. Take pictures of yourselves with the engagement ring. Bask at the moment and make your engagement special. Times may be harsh but it’s important for you so you: Own it!
2. Get a Journal and Use It
This will be a time of ten thousand moments you won’t want to forget, as well as some frustrating times that you’ll need to vent about, and not necessarily to your partner. The journal/planner you keep while planning your wedding will not only help you through this time, but it will be something you cherish for the rest of your life.
Maybe at night before going to sleep you may open a word and keep track of how things are going and how are you feeling. This is a special time for you and you will want to remember it, besides: who plans a wedding during a pandemic 😛
3. Announce Your Engagement
Tell everyone the good news! There are many ways of doing this, and no way is better than any other. Consider announcing your engagement in a nice gif, use Instagram filters, make a TikTok, go crazy! Now would also be a great time to create a wedding website.
4. Set the Tone of Your Event
You need to decide what you want your wedding to feel like. A good way to begin is to sit down with your partner and do some freewriting about your ideal wedding. Find inspiration and create a mood board. Look at the adjectives that each of you wrote and use those as a starting point. If your planning to get married in the next year, maybe it won’t be a huge wedding, but that gives you a chance to make it very personal and play around with more Themes
5. Set the Budget
Start off by finding a wedding budget worksheet. Look at your finances and figure out how much you already have in savings, and how much you can save each month. Talk to each of your parents and ask them if they’d like to contribute to your wedding. Find out how much they’d like to give you, or what specific things they’d like to pay for.
Avoid debt as much as possible. Since married couples fight about money more than anything else, why start your marriage with debt in your books? At the same time, you may consider opening a new credit card just for the wedding that will earn you airline miles, cashback, or other incentives. It’s a good way for you to keep track of wedding expenses and can help you pay for your honeymoon. Just try to pay it off in full each month.
6. Choose Your Attendants
Your attendants do a lot more than just standing next to you on the day of the wedding. Now is the time to get them involved. You can choose two or 4 best friends or family that want them to help you with “stuff” that will come down at specials moments
7. Get Support
The successful bride and groom do not plan their wedding alone—they get help. This may be from professionals, respected publications, online app resources, or trusted friends who’ve planned their own weddings.
Consider hiring a wedding planner or consultant. Especially if you are a busy person, or just feel a little lost, a professional can be invaluable in putting together your ideal day and can often save you money.
