The moment you say “Yes” is also the very first step you make towards wedding planning. However, keep in mind the fact that not everything has to be done right after the engagement proper. What are the things you should not do after your engagement? Here are some of the most important ones:
Choosing your bridesmaids. There’s no rush when it comes to choosing your attendants. You don’t have to do it right away. Take your time, consider the options and make sure you make this moment as special as possible.
- You should really avoid moving house any time between the engagement and the wedding. Specialists consider that moving and getting married are among life’s most stressful events. You definitely don’t want to make a “cocktail” of these two!
- Doing anything that will change your schedule a lot. This is definitely not the right time for a career change and not the right time to buy a puppy either. Avoid anything that will change your usual schedule because, as you might expect it, your wedding planning will take quite a lot of your spare time as it is.
- Over-spending. We know it feels very tempting to “treat” your anxiety with a new pair of designer shoes or with a very expensive trip to Paris, but save these for the “after-wedding” period. Your Big Day will probably come with a lot of expenses and you should really try to save as much money as you can.
- Worrying too much. We know planning a wedding can be stressful (and downright confusing at times), but try not to stress out too much. It is of the utmost importance that you keep your clear thinking if you want this event to turn out exactly as planned.
Also, don’t forget not to postpone choosing a venue. Once you have a draft of your wedding guest list, make sure you go out and “hunt” for the perfect location. Here at Black Horse Inn, we can provide you with a wonderful venue surrounded by stunning landscape. Come visit us and see for yourself!
