Setting Your Wedding Goals

Congratulations on your engagement! Now what? You have some big decisions ahead of you. Here are a few tips to help you stay on track.

#1 Hire a professional wedding planner to assist you in this process. A wedding planner can help you find the best venues and vendors to fit your needs. She can assist you with creating a timeline and budget, selecting invitations, photographer, flowers, cakes, linen, transportation, lodging, and much more.

#2 The earlier you get started, the better. So don't procrastinate.

#3 Set a realistic budget and stick to it. Be honest with yourself about what you and your family's financial comfort zone is.

#4 Include the groom in decisions. It is his day too.

#5 Once you have decided on your wedding gown, flowers or cake, stop looking in wedding magazines for more ideas.

#6 Remember that it is really about what happens after "I do." Don't loose sight of that.

#7 On your wedding day, relax and enjoy your day!

Nicole, Thank you so much for congratulating me on my engagement. Thank you also for being a faithful follower of my blog, and lastly, thank you soooooooooo very much for this great post! Of course as a planner, I've told my brides some of the same things, however now being on the other side, I see things in a different light, and needed the reminders for myself :-)
