Top Tips For The Newly Engaged

Recently gotten engaged and wondering where on earth do I start? Well, you’re in the right place!

As an experienced Wedding Coordinator, Xanthe has popped together a list of the first things you should do…


Firstly, enjoy your engagement, this will only ever happen once so take some time to soak it all up, share some champagne, have a party or go on a little getaway (maybe even to Symondsbury)– whatever feels like the perfect way for you to celebrate the big YES!



Tell your nearest & dearest
Sharing your happy news with your family and friends is always super exciting, there are so many fun ways to tell them… an extravagant reveal, a FaceTime call or a simple post on Instagram, whatever feels right for you!



Insure your engagement ring
Now this one seems a little boring and really what is the worst that can happen? Rest assured you won’t be mad at yourself for insuring your engagement ring if you do happen to have a Kim K diamond earring moment…



Discuss your dream day
Often people will have a dream wedding in mind, but equally you might have no idea what you want your wedding to be like. Before delving into the depths of wedding planning its always a great start to have a chat just the pair of you, before you get any input from family or friends, as after all it is your day and it’s important to remember that!



Create a mood board
Pinterest will become your best friend when wedding planning, trust us. Creating a board you both have access to is a great way to see what peaks your interest, nothing is set in stone and it creates the perfect way to open a discussion between you both and discover what you are both really hoping for from your wedding day.



Consider the length of your engagement
This may again seem a little odd, who knows how long they want to be engaged?! However, it’s good to discuss early on whether you’re in a rush to get married or whether you’d like to sit back and enjoy a nice long engagement… if you do have specific suppliers, dates or venues you’ve always dreamt of then this may be something you need to look into sooner rather than later!



That’s it! The most important thing is to enjoy your engagement and the whole process of planning your dream wedding as it will come by so fast
