Congratulations on your engagement! If you're like many couples who've recently taken this exciting step, you might be feeling a mix of joy and apprehension about diving into wedding planning, especially in the early days.

1. Celebrating Your Engagement:

First things first, celebrate your new status! Whether it's atoast with champagne  or planning smaller, in-person gatherings, make sure to bask in the excitement of being engaged. It's also the perfect time to think about your engagement ring. Check with your home insurance provider to get it insured, and if resizing is needed, start looking for a reputable jeweler. Don't forget to start browsing for your wedding bands too!

2. Setting Your Wedding Timeline:

On average, weddings take about 13 months to plan, so starting now is a smart move. Decide whether you're aiming for a 2022 or 2023 wedding. Remember, venues and suppliers book up months and even years in advance, so early booking is key to securing your preferred dates.

3. Harnessing the Power of Pinterest:

Pinterest is a fantastic tool for visualizing and planning your wedding. Create boards for different aspects of your big day – from themes and décor to attire and catering. 

4. Budgeting for Your Big Day:

Discussing finances might not be the most exciting part of wedding planning, but it's essential. Sit down with your partner and establish a realistic budget. Whether you splurge on a live band or opt for a dazzling firework display, remember that your wedding should reflect your personal tastes and priorities.

5. Drafting Your Guest List:

It's time to think about all the people you want at your big day. Don't forget you may want 2 separate lists, one for day guests and one for the evening. 

6. Exploring Venues and Suppliers:

Your wedding date and venue are foundational to your planning. While in-person visits might be limited, many venues offer virtual tours. Start by shortlisting venues, checking their availability, and downloading brochures. The same approach applies to suppliers – research, check availability, and understand their booking and payment processes. Securing your favorites early is crucial in these times of high demand.

Planning a wedding can be challenging, exciting and stressful, but it's also an opportunity to get creative and focus on what truly matters. Use this time to lay the groundwork for your special day, ensuring that when the time comes, you're ready to celebrate your love story in the most beautiful way possible.

Remember, your wedding is a reflection of your journey together, and with a bit of planning and flexibility, it can be everything you've dreamed of and more.
