1: Savour The Moment

Perhaps you have experienced a mix of emotions – the joy, the excitement, and the sense of anticipation for the journey that lies ahead. Or maybe there have been a few moments of nervous excitement; and now you are wondering how to move forward? Well, however you are feeling, know that it is an honor for me to guide you through the initial steps of your engagement.


1. Savor the Moment:

Before diving into the intricate details of wedding planning, take a minute to just enjoy the magic of your engagement. This really is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that deserves to be celebrated. It might feel like it at the time, but there is no rush... try just being a fiance for a while. Host an intimate engagement party with close friends and family if you want to do something to share the joy; I can guarantee that they are just as excited about this as you are.


2. Dream Together:

Sit down with your partner and let your imagination run wild. What is your dream wedding? When? Where? Why? What does a wedding mean to you?


Whether it's an elegant ballroom affair, a rustic countryside celebration, or a destination wedding, this is the time to dream. Once you know what you are dreaming of; I'll work closely with you to understand your vision and turn it into a reality; or a version of it that suits you both.


3. Build Your Wedding Team:

If I could share only one thing with you; it would be this - "Surround yourself with a team of professionals who share your passion and get your vibe." Whether it is an insanely talented photographer to capture every special moment, or a phenomenal florist who can bring your vision to life – assembling a dream team is crucial. As your dedicated wedding planner, I will leverage my network of top-notch vendors to ensure that every aspect of your celebration reflects your style and sophistication.


4. Set a Realistic Budget:

While dreams are limitless, budgets (unfortunately) are not. As an experienced wedding planner, I'll help you set a realistic budget that aligns with your vision. From the venue to the smallest details, a well-planned budget ensures that your celebration is not only breathtaking but also financially viable.


5. Choose a Date and Venue:

Selecting the perfect date and venue is a pivotal step in the planning process. Whether it's a romantic summer soirée or a cozy winter celebration, your chosen date will set the tone for the entire event. Together, we can explore exclusive venues that resonate with your vision, ensuring that every detail contributes to the overall magic of your special day.

6. Personalize Your Ceremony:

Your wedding ceremony is the heart of your celebration. Work with a planner and your celebrant / officiant/ registrar (insert relevant person here) to personalize your vows, create a meaningful ceremony script, and infuse your love story into every element. From incorporating cultural traditions to ripping up the rule book; the ceremony should reflect the essence of your relationship; and ultimately what matters to you.


7. Begin the Guest List:

"The Inner Circle", "The Chosen Ones" - whatever we are calling them... Drafting the guest list can be a delicate task, but it's essential for planning purposes. Together, we can navigate through this process, ensuring that your celebration is filled with the people who matter most.

I can provide guidance on etiquette, seating arrangements, and more to make this aspect of the journey seamless.

Just let me know any family dynamics we need to pay attention to and we can do as much as possible to ensure that these are managed on the day. Herding guests and playing peace keeper is run of the mill for a wedding planner.


8. Embrace the Adventure:

Your engagement is not just a prelude to the wedding; it's an adventure in itself.

As your dedicated wedding planner, my goal is to make this journey as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Embrace the excitement, the challenges, and the joy that comes with planning your celebration. Hopefully you are only going to do this once; and it is my goal to help you arrive at your destination excited, relaxed and hopeful for what is to come; not feeling like this is something you are looking forward to 'getting over with'. Let's start as we mean to go on!


To Conclude:

As a seasoned wedding planner, I am always thrilled to be part of your engagement journey. I love working with couples helping the, turn their dreams into reality. I provide inspiration; encouragement and support to those that need it; and help couples create a celebration that is a true reflection of their love story.


Congratulations again - This is just the beginning of a beautiful adventure, and I am honored to guide you every step of the way. Get ready to embark on a journey towards forever – it's going to be extraordinary!
