Embarking on the journey to “foreva, eva” is an exciting whirlwind. As a destination wedding photographer and videographer, we’ve seen many different types of weddings and journeys to the “I do’s”! It is important to stay true to you and enjoy this time together.
Here are some invaluable tips for navigating the post-engagement bliss:
Before diving into wedding planning, savor the magic of your engagement privately. Create moments that are exclusively yours, relishing the joy of this significant milestone.
Resist the urge to succumb to external pressures. Politely deflect inquiries with a simple, “We’re savoring this season,” ensuring your engagement remains a tranquil sanctuary away from the buzz of expectations.
Make wedding planning a collaborative effort. Set aside dedicated time for joint planning sessions, allowing both partners to contribute ideas, preferences, and visions. This not only lightens the load but deepens your connection.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of wedding preparations, continue dating each other. Designate moments when wedding talk is off-limits, focusing on nurturing your relationship beyond the logistics of the big day.
Say yes to engagement photos, but do it your way. Choose a location that resonates with your story, creating a personalized and intimate atmosphere. This not only captures your unique connection but also doubles as a celebration of your engagement.
Collaborate on a vision board that encapsulates your dream wedding. From color palettes to decor inspirations, this visual aid serves as a guiding light, aligning your ideas and preferences.
Identify your shared values and priorities early in the planning process. Whether it’s an intimate setting, specific traditions, or a particular style, these shared values will guide your decisions and bring authenticity to your celebration.
Initiate open conversations about the budget. Establishing financial boundaries early on alleviates stress and ensures that your wedding plans align with your financial goals as a couple.
Share the load by delegating tasks. Whether it’s family members, friends, or professional vendors, allocating responsibilities ensures a smoother planning process, allowing you both to relish the excitement.
Amidst the planning chaos, periodically pause to reflect on the journey. Celebrate the progress, reminisce about the special moments, and revel in the anticipation of what lies ahead.
Remember, your engagement is a time to lay the foundation for a wedding that reflects your unique love story. Embrace each step, and relish the joyous moments as you weave the tapestry of your shared future. Cheers to the journey ahead!
