The most wonderful time of the year has just passed, Engagement Season! According to Weddingwire, 33% of all engagements happen between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. If you were one of the lucky ones to get engaged in the last few months, you might be asking yourself: What now?
Here are a few tips from our Catering Experts of what to do now to start the wedding planning process:
1) Celebrate your engagement!
Don’t rush into any planning for a few weeks and take time to enjoy your fiancé and this special time in your life. If you haven’t already, show off your ring to all your friends and family. Perhaps have an engagement party! Last but not least, pop a bottle of champagne and soak in every minute!
2) Create your vision.
Find out what your style is. Are you wanting an intimate, casual, or more formal wedding? Once you figure out what direction you want to take then use tools like Pinterest, Social Media platforms like Instagram, Wedding Websites and Magazines to help get visual ideas. Every year the wedding trends change so these tools will help you with knowing what is in and what is not.
3) Hire your vendors.
It is important to hire vendors that fit your vision. Make sure you research their past work to get an idea of what to expect. We recommend considering a wedding planner as they will be able to better direct you in this planning process. However, here at Chef’s Market we are able to help too. Not only can we cater to any bride’s wedding style, but we can also help provide planners and venue contacts who would be great to work with in order to capture your vision.
