Congrats Your Engaged! Why it's the perfect time to hire a Wedding Planner?

  She Said Yes! Engagement Proposal

Favored by Yodit Events has an Engagement Season Gift Just for You!

Did you know? 28% of proposals take place between December and February—making it the most popular time of year to get engaged. The winter holidays are filled with family and love, so it’s only natural that this time of year is among the most popular for engagements. If you’re a lucky couple who recently got engaged, congratulations! As an engagement gift to you, we’re going to share the first five steps you should take from here:

1. Let everyone know the big news. Don’t instantly announce your engagement on social media and let everyone find out that way. Instead, reach out personally to your friends and relatives to share the big news. This is also a great time to ask wedding attendants if they’ll stand up for you (if you already know who you want to ask). 2. Set the budget. The first big step of wedding planning is setting the budget. You can ask your parents if they intend to contribute anything to the wedding so you can include that money in the final amount. Once that number is set, don’t stray from it! 3. Finalize your guest list. Yes, we mean finalize. Before you know how much money you can afford to spend on any of your wedding services, you need to know how many guests you’ll have to feed. Pare that list down as much as possible to help stretch your budget. 4. Get a wedding planner. Whether you work with a professional planner or go the DIY route and hire a coordinator, stay organized and on a timeline to make the planning process as stress-free as possible. 5. Find a venue. It may seem more logical to set a date before selecting a venue, but being flexible on your wedding date can actually help you find the perfect venue because you’re willing to book your wedding when the venue is available. The venue may also offer discounts on certain days of the week or times of the day, so your flexibility can allow you to take advantage of those.

These five steps will kick-start your wedding planning. We hope that you enjoy this special time of being engaged. The big day will be here before you know it!
