What should you do right after becoming engaged? Before you worry about event planning, take time to celebrate this relationship milestone, and focus on sharing the good news with the people you feel closest to. Once you are ready to begin wedding planning, focus on establishing the big details first. Settling on matters of your budget, your ideal guest size, and your preferred wedding date will make other decisions easier to make. It will also give you a sense of what your wedding event will be, and what you can do to make the most of it! As you look at different options for your wedding, you should know that Texas Old Town provides multiple venue spaces, so you can find a beautiful outdoor space that is ready to fit your wedding vision and accommodate your guests!

When Should We Start To Tell People We Are Engaged?

You can begin sharing the news of your engagement as soon as you want, though you should take care to let the people closest to you know personally before making a public announcement. You can prioritize telling close family members and friends, then begin sharing with others in your tightest social circle. Once you feel that everyone who should hear personally has been told of your engagement, you can begin sharing publicly.

These Planning Decisions Should Be Made Early

There are several important decisions that will shape the rest of your wedding planning efforts in significant ways. You will want to set a budget for your wedding that you are confident you can stick to – trying to change how much you spend later in your engagement can lead to stress. You should also set your number of guests, find a venue and date, and think about your wedding theme. Once these matters are settled, you can have a clearer idea of how you, your partner, and your wedding party members should dress, what colors to feature, and what flowers will be in bloom on the date of your wedding.

Choosing Your Wedding Party Members

While you do not have to choose all of your wedding party members right away, you should touch base with the people you want to act as your best man and maid or matron of honor right after your engagement. Settling on the size of your wedding will help you determine how many people you ought to have with you at the altar. If your guest count is on the small size, a larger wedding party can feel out of place. Once you have made your announcement, you can start to contact the people you want to act as groomsmen or bridesmaids.
