OK, I’m Engaged! What’s Next?

You've just got engaged and it feels GREAT, Right?

You're flashing the ring around so it can just hit the right light to sparkle in someone's face.

I remember when I got engaged and I was travelling to work I would hold onto the bars with my left hand just so everyone could see the ring.

Your excited and probably can't wait to get started on the planning - creating your fabulous day. What I would like you to do is to take some time and just enjoy your engagement.

Hold off buying the mags, scouring blogs, looking at dresses and asking the other half "What kind of wedding do you want?" enjoy the moment with the one you want to do life with, stay present. You want to spend some time together with your fiancé just living in the moment of being engaged.

Once you start planning for the wedding your focus moves into the future. You'll only get engaged once, this is all part of your wedding journey and it’s an amazing feeling. Don't stress and worry about the wedding planning yet.

Then when you feel ready in a month or two or six or twelve, you can give me a call and I’ll be sure to take care of you.

Congratulations!!

So, planning itself is another job, and it takes time and planning to put together a day that is meaningful.
There are three key elements of planning, these aren’t the only things planners do and there is a lot of detail for each area. I’ve detailed some of the activities for each element.
