Top Tips Tuesday: Congratulations! You’re Engaged! So, What Do You Do Next?
It’s probably being an extremely busy few weeks for you all, with Christmas, new years then probably straight back to work! And, of course throwing yourself into WHSmith to surround yourself in the finest, most glossiest bridal magazines going!
Yes, If your partner dropped to one knee and popped ‘that’ all important question, and of course, you said yes! We are sending huge congratulations your way! We understand that this time will be so, so exciting for you all. But, where do you actually start? You have to now juggle your work life, social life, wedding planning and date night. With so much to do, what do you actually do first?
I’m guessing you have already chosen your ring, or perhaps your better half did the perfect job for you? Please, please, please get that rock insured! You will be going around showing everybody, possibly taking it off to get a pretty new manicure – the last thing you will want to be doing is loosing it, or have some one potentially steal it! If you have not yet insured your’s, look for amazing, and trustworthy companies here! Plus whilst you’re at it, why not insure your whole wedding? It will save you a lot of heartache and frustration if something does go wrong!
Next, you will be at the stage where you are looking at either dates for your wedding or venues? Perhaps you are going to choose a date, then approach venues once you have picked a date that you are both happy with? Alternatively, you may approach a venue that you have had your heart set on for ages (ahem, not like you have searched before the engagement…) then choose from any available dates that they may have, and that work for you. If you are struggling with this, take a peak at our guide to finding your dream venue here!
The one thing that we recommend the most is popping by to our luxury wedding fairs. They are taking place all over Yorkshire, and guess what? The entry is absolutely FREE! To make matters even better, a hand picked selection of the most beautiful and luxurious venues will be playing host to our wonderful wedding fairs. So, not only will you be able to liaise with the venues, and their ever helpful co-coordinators, but you will also be able to see the products and services of anywhere between 30-90 suppliers!
We have a huge variety of wedding suppliers, you name it we will have it! Take a look at the most amazing cakes, trailing blooms and bouquets, sit in a luxury wedding car or perhaps browse the delicate and intricate details of stunning bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses? Feeling tempted? Remember, you can reserve your free tickets to all of our ever so pretty wedding fairs here!
Be a super organised bride or groom, and come and see for yourselves the true variety that we have at our shows. We have no more than 10% of each supplier in each category, meaning that you won’t be overwhelmed with too many suppliers that do the same thing! You can also be sure that the suppliers that are attending our shows provide the highest quality services. Start planning one of the most special days of your lives with a cool glass of Prosecco in hand as you talk to some truly talented and inspirational people, all on hand to help you.
Take the jump into wedding planning by joining us at our most luxury shows this year. Have you seen the venues that we will be working with, they are so, so gorgeous and you definitely won’t want to miss out on seeing them! Who know’s you may even perhaps book your wedding day right there and then!
Take home with you a bridal gift bag – they’re jam packed with beauty essentials, pens, pencils, little sweet treats, offers & discounts and not forgetting the finest magazines, sourced from all over the country, just to help with pages packed with pretty and filled with inspiration! Reserve your V.I.P Bride or Groom gift bag here!
