Wedding Wednesday - I'm Engaged! Now What? - Week 2

Well take a look at that gorgeous ring of yours! Congratulations on your engagement! Before you walk down the aisle, you will stroll hand-in-hand down wedding planning road with your future hubby and we couldn’t be more excited for you! One of our primary goals here at Brilliant Bridal is to educate and empower our brides and grooms to make the right wedding planning decisions at the right time. Since there are so many newly engaged couples this time of year trying to figure out where to start now that they've said "yes" we are going to be doing a 5 week Wedding Wednesday blog series to help you get started in the right direction!

Although your shiny new ring isn’t more than a few days or weeks old, we can assure you that people will begin asking you lots of questions about the details very soon. In fact, one of the first things people will ask after they hear the news is “When exactly is the big day?” Don’t let these big questions scare you; you’re freshly engaged and you shouldn’t have all the answers yet!

If you can't nail down an exact date, we suggest creating a tentative date or season to put these premature questions to rest.  Also, it can be helpful as you start reaching out to wedding vendors!  For example, if you know you're wanting to get married some time in October or November but you're waiting for certain details to fall together, letting vendors know you're looking at Fall 2014 is a much more helpful response than "no wedding date".

We'll see you back here next Wednesday for Week 3 of our "I'm Engaged!  Now What?" series!  Happy wedding planning!
