Congrats on your engagement! And if you didn’t realize before, your fiancé is a Godsend. My biggest goal during this stay at home order is to not gain more than 20 pounds. He or she planned an engagement, surprised you with a beautiful ring all without having access to the beach, your favorite restaurant or your best friends from college. You my friend, are a lucky gal or guy!
Wedding planning is stressful, wedding planning during a global pandemic is crazy! We are here to help. Below are the first three things you should do immediately now that you are engaged!
Create a Cute/Unique Way to Announce your Engagement
A simple ring picture with a generic caption won’t due during these times! People are spending so much more time on social media, give them something fun to watch. Participate in an online challenge, reenact your favorite scene from a movie or choreograph a dance to announce the big news!
Hire a Wedding Planner
I know what you are thinking, of course I would say that. But seriously! Before Covid-19, my clients saw the value in having a professional handle the details of their wedding.
Now, my clients are grateful to have my team and I help them navigate rescheduling their big day. A wedding planner will renegotiation contracts on your behalf, communicate changes to the vendors and will be a huge support to you, your fiancé and your families. Having a capable and experienced wedding planning team on your side will alleviate so much stress!
The love of your life just asked for your hand in marriage! I know you want to get married right away but don’t rush! It may be 2021 before weddings go back to the way we’ve known them. You can still legally married if you desire (let us know if you need assistance getting a marriage license) but take a year to plan the celebration therefore you can have the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
Besides, no one wants to drop it like it is hot while wearing a mask and being 6 feet away from your guests 😊.
