The Beautiful Beginnings Bridal Expo, put on by the Bridal Loft in Pensacola, Florida, is something I look forward to every year as a wedding planner. There are so many brides that I get to chat with, and I love it. I get to see the excitement in their eyes, hear what they have planned for their wedding day, sometimes hear proposal stories, and I also get to chat with vendors both that I have worked with numerous times, and meet new ones as well. It is something I look forward to every January, and am so glad to get to be a part of it every year.
First off, if you are engaged, congratulations!! When you get engaged, there are so many thoughts that may run through your head - how do you decide what to do first? Do you go and buy every bridal magazine you can find? Do you start scouring Pinterest (or add more to the Pinterest board that you've been pinning to for a while now??) Where do you start? I have put together a small list together of 10 things that I think will deinitely help you get started on the right track to planning. And if you don't want to start planning right away, that is perfectly okay as well! Bask in the enjoyment of your new engagement, and when you're ready, that's when the time is to start planning your wedding. Getting engaged is a time in your life to enjoy. Please don't feel that anything written below needs to be done immediately.
