It’s the Monday after Valentine’s Day which probably means there are a lot of ladies out there with some new bling on her finger! So let me first say CONGRATULATIONS!! And now I’d love to offer a few tips to the newly engaged couple:
1. Take time to enjoy being engaged! This is your time to be happy and celebrate the first step in creating your brand new family.
2. Next, make sure you and your fiancé are on the same page and have the same vision before family (and friends) get involved. Talk about what is important to each of you, and make a plan for backing each other up when other people challenge your decisions. Always back each other up in front of others.
3. It’s ok if you don’t already have a date and venue picked out within 24 hours! People will start asking you about colors and wedding parties and venues, but it’s ok to tell them you’ve been busy drinking champagne and looking at your new bling bling.
Wedding planning can be stressful – enjoy this time before the crazy kicks in! And once that crazy does kick in, I’m always here to help my couples navigate the wedding planning process!
