Tips for newly engaged couples

 

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!

You’ve got the ring, you’ve got the man, what’s next?

There’s so many things to organise before the big day, but where do you start?

There are so many wedding magazines out there but now with the invention of the internet, check out blogs, Pinterest and other wedding websites for inspiration. Before you get carried away and purchase anything though, make sure you sort out the following first:

1. Budget

Work out the budget with your partner. Estimate how much everything will cost and stick close to it. Maybe even open up a seperate account to keep that budget in order! Here’s a good budget for a wedding.

2. Set a date

When you are setting your date, think of family and friends who will be travelling to your wedding. Ensure it is a date that most people you invite overseas/nationwide can make it! Send your invitations (or save the date cards) early so guests can.. well… save your date. (At Fino Photography, we can take an engagement session for you with “Save the date” ideas – let us know if you wish to have this service). Once you pencil in a date, make sure you call up a few locations to ensure your top few choices are available for your preferred date. Draft up a small guest list while you are at it.

3. Research

Go online, look through wedding magazines, however you want to be inspired. Start calling up caterers for quotes, supplier quotes and get those creative juices running! Figure out a theme so you can work everything around it. Even start looking around for dresses so you can work a colour theme into your wedding. It can take awhile to find the perfect dress so start looking around early!

Until next time…

Ciao for now:)
