Announce your engagement.
Of course, tell your loved ones the good news. Before, couples mail their announcements to their friends and family members. Now, the easiest way to do this is to make a wedding website, or post in social media.
Set the wedding date.
Choose a wedding date. This is one of the things people will ask you once you announce your engagement. Without a date, going on with the wedding planning process will be a nightmare.
Set the tone of your wedding event.
Do you want a casual celebration or a formal wedding? Do you want to wear a pretty luxury wedding dress from Malaysia, or a simple one that you inherited from your mom? Your choice of wedding dress would depend on the tone of the event. Decide on the tone of your wedding. A great way to start is to write about your ideal wedding.
Set a realistic budget.
Look for a wedding budget worksheet. This will help you monitor your expenses and your goals. Contemplate on your finances, and decide how much you are willing to spend for your wedding. As much as possible, avoid debt. You need to have a clean start financially.
The wedding is not just an event for you and your groom. It is also for your guests, and for your families. Thus, planning everything is no easy task. You would need assistance along the way. Consider hiring a consultant or a wedding planner. If you are a busy person, you will need all the help you can get to make your wedding successful.
