Recently engaged? Do you anticipate receiving a ring this Holiday Season? Congratulations! Take some time to enjoy the excitement (which may take weeks) and take pleasure in this wonderful time.
Once you get past these next few days you need to sit down with your fiancé and make a few decisions together. The first thing you need to discuss is: What Kind of Wedding Do WE Want? Small Intimate, Grand & Elegant, Religious, Ballroom with All Your Friends & Family – what type of wedding do you envision? Don’t say “Nice.” That can be any of the above. What’s your style – casual or formal? Do you plan to have lots of family and friends? Do you love the outdoors and want a sunset ceremony? Do you want to dance the night away with a big band and a ballroom than makes you feel like Cinderella & Prince Charming? These are decision to be made before you start any wedding planning.
