You're Engaged! Now what?!?

Posted by Sheryl Hunnie on December 16, 2018 at 2:25 PM

Congratulations! You’re Engaged!

You’ve chosen to be married. Whether you are planning a big celebration of your love, or a more intimate and casual wedding, there are some first steps you should consider….

1. Celebrate!

One of you asked, the other said, “Yes!” There is no rule that says that you have to tell everyone right away…you may take a few days to be excited together before sharing your news. When are ready to tell everyone, let your families in on the news first (in person is best), and then tell your besties. Once your nearest and dearest have been let in on your news, feel free to post away on social media!


2. Insure Your Ring

Make sure you talk to an insurance agent about coverage in case your ring or its stones ever need to be repaired or replaced. First, get an appraisal by a certified independent gemologist; most jewelers will provide this service upon purchase and make sure you understand all the terms of the policy. Find out whether you are covered if the ring is lost, stolen, or damaged, what stipulations there are, if any, and how long the claims process takes. You might be able to add a jewelry rider to your existing homeowner's or renter's policy; if not, set up a separate policy. (ref. Martha Stewart weddings)

3. Dollars and Sense

It may feel a less than romantic to begin your planning by looking at your budget, but you can’t make any decisions until you’ve established what you can spend. Decide together as to what your priorities are, do a little research, and come up with a number you are comfortable with. You then can play with how you want to use that money creatively. Remember, not everything costs money. Some of the best memories of your day will be how it felt, not what it looked like.

4. What’s your Vision?

There are as many different ways to celebrate the beginning of your life together as you can dream of. Feel free to think outside of the conventional box. Even if you are set on a formal event in a ballroom, you can play with the time of year, or time of day to help your budget. Think about options like a a cocktail reception rather than a plated meal. There are also many unconventional venues in and around Winnipeg that you may not have considered as a wedding venue.

Part and parcel to this stage of planning is a rough idea of your guest list, as that number has a real impact on your budget and affect your choice of venue.

5. Speaking of venues….

Although it may seem counter-intuitive, you should look for your venue before you set the date, especially if you have your heart set on a particular space. Check out similar options depending on your vision. Don’t rule out meeting with venues you hadn’t considered…it is amazing what the right décor can do! Once you find a venue that checks off your boxes, prepare to set the date and nail down the vendors that you really want to hire.

6. Vendor Love

There are so many talented people in the Winnipeg Wedding Industry. The best of these book a year or more in advance. At the top of your list should be wedding planners, photographers, caterers, and officiants (that’s me!). Do your research; experience, professionalism and the ability to create and deliver quality product are important. Also, make sure you are meeting with registered businesses: someone who can be accountable for the products/service they offer.

Although planning your wedding can be stressful, it should be exciting and fun! You and your partner have some decisions to make in the first few weeks of planning. Tackle them as a team and keep in mind that both of you should have input into what you want for your big day.
