Excitement abounds when an engagement is announced. It is traditional reaction to what is widely seen as good news. Family and friends share in the joy that occurs when two people decide to formalise their relationship.
As the dust settles on the engagement celebrations, it becomes apparent to the couple that they may have a wedding to organise. This in itself can cause some stress. There is a huge amount of organisation required in weddings and unfortunately they are not staged easily. To avoid stress, the couple needs to be well organised in advance.
The couple should enlist the help, assistance and advice of close family and friends but should still be independent enough to make their own decisions. A wedding day should be all about the couple and they should communicate thoroughly with one another to ensure that both are happy with any wedding decisions.
First and foremost the couple will need to decide on a date. That way they can call prospective wedding venues and see if they are available. Next the couple should draft a guest list; this can be a rough estimate on numbers but at least it will give them an indication of how many people they will need to cater for. Following on from this the couple can decide whether they wish to go for a hotel venue for their celebrations or choose to hire a private venue such as a restaurant and host the event there.
Other important considerations at this stage include whether or not the couple want to get married in a religious location. This will also affect their choice of venue as they may want to have the ceremony in the same location as their wedding reception and not all venues can accommodate that.
