Planning 101 4th July 2013

Congratulations! You're engaged!

Was it a traditional engagement, with your husband-to-be braving the “talk” with your father or are you yet to tell your family and friends? Either way, the fun can now really begin and of course, congratulations!

Time to celebrate

Did you know that 27% of brides-to-be call their best friend after the proposal? Who are you going to tell first, how about planning a party and letting everyone know? I am sure everyone wants to hear about the proposal so what a perfect excuse for a get together.

Every girls dream

You are finally engaged to the one you love; muster up all those magical, childhood dreams of how your wedding day would be. Find that perfect dress, shop for the exquisite, matching wedding rings and of course, get excited with the bridesmaids-to-be!

What’s next?

Engaged CoupleThe average length of an engagement is 14.7 months, very precise and quite a long time! At least you have time to think about what you really want. Do you want the stunning, summer wedding, with Champagne and pretty flowers? Or that winter wonderland feel with chance of snow on your perfect day. Whether you are planning on a traditional church wedding or an extravagant ceremony abroad, the choice is completely down to you and your fiancé. Sit down with your fiancé and each make a list of what is important to you both. Maybe split the list between essentials and nice-to-haves. Compare your lists and agree to compromise where necessary!
