I have had an account for quite sometime and now I am finally a bride! My fiance proposed on Friday night and we are trying to set an August wedding date. My fiance really wants to just bask in the glow of engagement (it took him 4 years to get around to it) and while I am thrilled to be engaged (WOOHOOO!!!!!) I want to make sure that I stay on top of things and start planning asap!
I have read several "to-do's and don'ts" and know that priority number one is setting the date and the venue. I have a few appointments booked (thank goodness its thanksgiving weekend!) but wanted to ask you for some help. Where should I begin? I know the budget is really important, but I feel like I cannot set the budget until I know the venue and the costs of catering. Also, I know that the floral arrangements, cake, dress, bridesmaids (havent determined them yet) are important, but also feel like they can wait a while.
Anyways, you can tell I am a little overwhelmed and your opinions would be very much appreciated!
p.s I am really excited about the dress shopping and is it too soon to start looking?
