So you got engaged: Now what?

First of all, congrats on your engagement!  
Sometimes the thought of planning a wedding can be overwhelming.  Who are we going to invite, who are we not going to invite, who are we going to piss off…etc., you get the idea, and the number one concern: budget.  My younger sister recently got engaged which prompted a discussion about the wedding industry these days. I was married almost six years ago and it seems in that short time so many things have changed.  Don’t get me wrong, pinterest was still around but I guess now working more closely in the industry I see both sides more clearly.

For the next couple of weeks we are going to look at the process of planning a wedding.  I’m going to provide pros and cons for every decision you will make, and most importantly how they influence your budget.  Let’s be real, it’s so easy to get caught up in social media. Sometimes I think about my own wedding and wonder if I would have done things differently.  To be honest, things weren’t perfect…but neither am I. We should be celebrating our differences instead of comparing or competing with each other. So always remember to make the best decision for you and your partner.  So check back next week where we discuss “Your Wedding Date: Wedding weekend?”

As Em always says, it’s all about good juju.
