Just engaged!
Posted: Feb 9, 2012 5:41 PM

Hi! Newly engaged here! Haven't even started doing much planning. It seems almost daunting with all the things to arrange. Any advice on where to start?

Dear Kit,

Get a looseleaf notebook and some pocket folders. Label the pocket folders with wedding items: Invitations, flowers, dress, etc.

Then, as you read wedding magazines or see stuff on the internet that appeals to you, tear out the ad or print it out and stuff it in the pocket folder. Later, go through and weed out stuff that you no longer find appealing.

You also need a budget. Talk with whomever is paying for the wedding (you? you and FH? parents?) and find out what is their bottom line.

Sit down with a spreadsheet and lay out the various budget items, with a total calculated in large type at the top. Compare that total to your budgeted amount to spend. As you read wedding item ads, note prices and start putting in prices in your spreadsheet, then see how that affects your total.

It's a lot of fun, but also a lot of work! I'm so glad it's once in a lifetime!

A budget, the date and how many people are most important to start out with. Also decide which items you and your fiance want the most.

Its great your engaged and congratulations. Ok I will suggest you to plan your wedding with the best things. Make a to-do list and think about getting things done in a timely manner like you should focus on the invitation to people, dresses etc.

So that kind of to-do list will help you to plan your wedding.
