You're Engaged! Now What?
Congrats, you're engaged and you're getting MARRIED! It's an exciting time and before you know it, that special day will be here. The next few days, weeks, months are going to feel like a whirlwind. There are so many things to think about, so many people to contact and so much to get done. Don't get overwhelmed. Take a breath. OK, take one more. Before you go into full planning mode, here are 5 simple steps on what to do once they've put a ring on it.
1. Take A Moment
This is a special and exciting time in your life. Take a moment with your new FIANCE and indulge in this time that's shared just between the two of you. Crack open some bubbly, do a little dance. Hell, do the tango, if you know what I mean ;)
2. Share The News
Now that that's out of the way, you're going to want to share the excitement! Reach out to your family and friends. How you share the news is up to you. Some choose social media, a simple phone call or some couples even have a little get together to surprise everyone with the big news.
3. Collect Inspo
Hop on Pinterest or Instagram and start filing away all of your favorite styles and ideas that work for the both of you as a couple. This will be a day to share in the love you BOTH share, so don't forget to include each other in the process.
4. Talk Numbers
Now it's time to get to the nitty gritty. You know, what style wedding the both of you would like but it's time to talk about how to make your dream wedding feasible to you as a couple. According to The Knot, the average wedding in the US costs round $28k. I know, right? Whoa. But that doesn't mean you are required to spend that. And sure, you could DIY your way to a pretty wedding but then what do you do with 150 sconces? This is 2019, you have options. At Drift Elopements, that's what we are here to offer you. Modern and stunningly beautiful weddings, WITHOUT that big price tag.
5. Assemble Your Wedding Crew
Decide who will be by your side through this fun and crazy ride. Whether its your childhood friend, your old college roommate or your sibling, make sure they of course love you but also the both of you as a couple because that is what that day should be about.
Once you've celebrated and made some decisions, it's time to give us a call. From there, we will handle the details and you can rest easy knowing your day will not only be beautiful and perfect but stress free too.
