The season for wedding planning is upon us! Usually in January and February, there are a few Bridal Shows in our area. I really look forward to this every year, as I get the opportunity to meet with new brides and say hello to fellow vendors that I haven't seen in a while. This weekend, I'll be at the Pensacola Beautiful Beginnings Bridal Show put on by the Bridal Loft, and this will be my seventh time being there! It is crazy to think that this journey began so many years ago. I have prepped everything and set up my display here at home beforehand to make sure it all fits right, and if you'll be in attendance, I can not wait for you to see the wedding invitation collections I'll have for you to see in person! If you're not local? Something tells me I may be on Instagram posting a few stories before the day begins during setup....so you may want to follow me there for behind the scenes details!
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.
