If you are anything like me, or most people who are getting married for the first time, you may be totally lost when it comes to knowing where to begin in your wedding planning. I have come up with my top five must-do items to complete, upon getting engaged. Hope this is helpful!

  1. CALL, don’t text, all close friends and family members. There is nothing tackier than a text message from your best friend saying, “I’m engaged!” Make the extra effort to call. Everyone will really appreciate it.

  2. Make sure you complete the previous step before posting anything on social media. Once you’ve made all of your important phone calls, Instagram the heck out of that ring, girl!

  3. Discuss timing with your fiancé. When is a good time for the wedding? In a few months? In a year? This is essential to know when hunting for a venue.

  4. Find the venue before anything else! Venue availability will help you determine the exact date and time of your wedding. A good number of wedding venues require you to book very far in advance, so it is good to start looking at venues early, even if you are planning on having a long engagement.

  5. Meet with a wedding planner. The planner will help keep you on track throughout your engagement period, and in my opinion, is the most essential asset in keeping (some of) your sanity during wedding planning!

Rebecca & Peter Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | The Round Barn, Waitsfield Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Rebecca and Peter met on a cold and drizzly September day on a geological field trip in western Vermont. Despite the miserable weather, the two hit it off and eventually started dating. They decided to have their wedding in Vermont because they were excited to share how exceptional the state is for everything from the people, to the scenery, to the food. Surrounded by their families and best friends, it was the perfect evening of great food, beer, and company - everything they love in life.

One of their favorite moments of the evening was their impromptu performance with their band of the song “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” by Warren Zevon. They had asked the band to learn the song since it was one of their favorites, but little did they know they would be the ones singing it! With all of their guests singing along with them it is a special moment they will always remember.

Rebecca and Peter’s advice for other couples planning their wedding is: “Take a deep breath… It will all work out and be great! You will hire people that do this for a living and will help take care of all of the details you are probably stressing over.”
