Congratulations, You’re Engaged! Now What…? – Magical Monday

Congratulations, You’re Engaged! Now What…?

Now that you’re engaged, the first step before you can do anything else is picking the venue!

Before you can set an official date, you will first have to tour and check with potential wedding venues.

Next scope out your favorite venues and meet with your top three. You’re date has not been set yet so there is much more flexibility when you find the venue of your dreams.

You will need your date set and your venue booked before you can begin booking the rest of your vendors. 

Your Wedding Planner can really help in this area.  They can save you both money and time.  They can tell you exactly which venues will be a good fit for what you are looking for. 

Your reception site will determine the overall mood and atmosphere of your wedding.  Select a site that will fit your individual style, taste and budget.  Many venues book more than a year in advance so book early.

Picking a venue should be a fun experience! 

One major part of picking a venue is to ensure that it satisfies all of your needs, and fits your budget!  Making sure that the venue is easily accessible for your guests, has all the areas and space you desire, and includes all of your necessary amenities are just a few starting points when it comes to venue selection!

Another very important question is regarding payment! 

You want to be sure there is no sticker shock when you choose a venue. Making sure that there is a clear understanding is crucial, and helps alleviate any “surprises” in the wedding planning process.

Regarding payment, is there a deposit required? Is there a payment plan option? What is the cancellation policy? Finally, when is the last day to make any changes?
