So we're engaged.....now what do we do?


I can't believe it's nearly a month since Dan proposed, time is seriously flying by this year. The most asked question we have had is 'when are you getting married?' to which we have always responded....'we have no idea!!' It's all happened so quickly and I was caught so off guard by the proposal that I really haven't thought about it. There are so many factors to take into consideration, Dan's brother is getting married next year so it could be a lot of stress having two weddings in the same year, plus Dan's family have to fly in from Hong Kong so it would be easier to get married in the Summer as that is when they normally come back to the UK. We've spent the last month just enjoying being engaged but I have a feeling we're going to have to start filling in this book!

Dan's Dad and step Mum kindly gave us this huge wedding planner which I have to admit slightly scares me as there is just SO much to do. There are so many things that I never even thought about I just don't know where to start. First things first we need to set a date and a budget, then we'll move onto venues. We have a rough idea of where we want the reception and we definitely know where we are getting married but at the moment we need to start saving pennies as although the venue is just what we are looking for it's a lot more than we had thought.

We attended our first wedding fair last weekend and it was all very overwhelming, again lots of questions that we just didn't know the answer to. 'Have you set a date?' 'What car would you like to arrive in?' 'How many bridesmaids are you having?' 'What flavor cake would you like?'

I need to get my bum in gear really and start working my way through this book. I'm meeting up with two of my oldest friends in a couple of weeks as we are all engaged now so I'll be taking lots of notes from them as they seem far more organised than me!!

Have you got any wedding planning tips for us? Where did you start? Would you like to see more wedding posts?
