Embracing the joy of being engaged is the best part of getting engaged! The excitement can get in the way of what you need to do next, so we’ve written it out for you. Planning a wedding takes a bit of time, but start with what’s most important, and the rest will fall into place. As one of the best wedding venues in Omaha, here’s our advice on the top five things to do after you’ve said “yes!”
Share the news
First and foremost, you’re engaged! Share the news with your friends and family. Notify your family and closest friends first, and then post on social media, as you don’t want to blindside those you care about most. You can even throw an engagement party with those you love to celebrate. Spread the word, and spend time being excited about your engagement before you get started with all the planning.
Pick a date
To start your to-do list, you’ll want to decide how long you want to be engaged before you get married. You don’t need to settle on an actual date right away, but talk about if you prefer a summer or winter wedding and where you want to have your wedding. It may be best to choose a season or a month, as venues might not have your set date available.
Create your guest list
Your guest list is going to take the most time to plan. You may choose tons of people upfront and then realize you can’t fit everyone into the budget. Or maybe you prefer a small wedding ceremony and will invite more people to the wedding reception that follows. Discuss your wedding plans and budget. You’ll want to finalize your guest list so you can begin compiling addresses for wedding invitations.
Contact potential vendors
Potential vendors include florists, cake bakers, musicians, photographers, and maybe even a wedding planner. Vendors typically are booked a year in advance, so you’ll want to contact them to set up your wedding day. It can help to create a to-do list and cross things off as you go, that way, nothing gets left out. The sooner you contact your vendors the better.
