Wedding Wednesday: Tip of the week... You've said YES! Now what's next?

The holidays are the perfect time for popping the question! Almost immediately following the big announcement of one's engagement the floodgates of wedding-related questions come pouring in from friends and family... "when's the date?"... "where's the reception?"... "what are your colours?" And though not intentional, this can begin to build, and pile on, that wedding stress! Don't let yourself become overwhelmed and enjoy this special time with you and your fiance!

Once you're ready to make a plan of action you may consider creating a wedding website. This website can include things like directions, hotel accommodations, an online guest book, your registry information, childhood photos and even stories about the couple. This is especially helpful if you have lots of out-of-town guests.

DreamGroup's Top Picks for Wedding Website:
Organization is the key to planning a successful wedding! We suggest using a 1-2 inch binder to help you keep all your wedding related documents (i.e. checklists, contracts, etc.) and inspirational materials in one easily accessible place. The clear paper protectors are perfect for keeping magazine tear-outs, fabric swatches and other miscellaneous bits & pieces.

Come up with your Wedding Vision Keywords:
  • Relaxed
  • Elegant
  • Modern
  • Traditional
  • Fun
  • Unique
  • Luxurious
  • Understated
  • Intimate
  • Other:__________
DG TIP: These keywords will come in handy in keeping your wedding style focused as you consider various elements you may wish to incorporate into the wedding i.e. "Does this invitation say Relaxed & Elegant?" or "Do these bridesmaid dresses reflect a Modern & Fun feel?
