Now that the holidays are coming to an end, I finally get to think and be about being engaged! I mean, I’ve been unbelievably excited since Jimmy asked me to marry him two weeks ago, but we’ve been so busy that we haven’t even had a chance to think of a date we’d like to get married, let alone where. And trust me, dozens of people have been asking since he the moment he put that ring on my finger! I’m excited to get married, but I want to enjoy being engaged and planning our wedding as well. Being engaged is wonderful! Many people have said that it’s no different, but I disagree. Jimmy and I both are happier, more in love, and always smiling. It’s so much fun!
So, now that things are calming down, it’s time to plan! As you may know from previous blog posts, I have been to A LOT of weddings (22 to be exact) over the past few years, so I have been a part of the planning process quite a few times. I’ve also seen many things that I loved and others that I didn’t, which I think will come in handy while making arrangements for our big day. And with a background in event planning, I am ready to rock this engagement thing’s world! But since I’ve never been engaged before, nor have I planned a wedding on my own, I want advice from those of you who have.
Call me smart or call me crazy, but I want to hear it all. What did you love about your wedding, and what would you have changed? How did you stay organized during the planning process? What are some things you know now that you wish you’d known then? What worked best and what didn’t work as planned? What’s worth splurging on and what’s not? What would you do the same all over again if you could? Any money or time-saving tips? What is your biggest piece of advice for us during this exciting and overwhelming process?
If you could take just a second and leave any tips, suggestions and advice for me in the comments below, I’ll love ya forever! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
