We’ve been engaged for almost six months, and so far, we’ve learned our fair share about what it takes to plan a wedding! As we near the six month mark, I thought I’d share a piece on what we’ve learned and offer some advice to couples planning a wedding.
While planning our engagement party, I was surprised to realise that there is a little bit more organizing that goes into a party like this than what I had expected! Getting quotes for various venues, organising the guest list, deciding on the décor, designing the invitations – just a few of the things I’ve had to think about. I soon realised that planning an engagement party can get out of hand quickly, and that cost of the party can escalate if you aren’t careful! I’ve learned my fair share about planning an engagement party, and I wanted to share some ideas with you on how to plan an engagement party.
It’s only been a week since somebody put a ring on my finger, but the ‘wedmin’ – wedding administration (if you’re a Miranda fan, you’ll be familiar with this term!) – has already begun! From the get go, I had people asking me if we had chosen a date, whether we’re hoping to plan a summer or winter wedding, a big fancy do, a small intimate affair…the list of questions goes on!
