THINGS TO DO AFTER ENGAGEMENT

This is a responsible thing =)

Eine Inspirationstafel wird Ihnen helfen, Entscheidungen für jeden Aspekt Ihres Hochzeitstages zu treffen.
4. CHOOSE A SEASON.
If you weren't sure what time of year you would like to get married before you created your inspiration chart, you probably already have made up your mind. Look at the images you used on your inspiration board - these images will show you what time of year you are drawn to.
5. SET YOUR BUDGET AND CREATE A GUEST LIST.
This is probably the hardest part, especially if your fiancé's parents and you haven't been approached about it yet.

There’s nothing like visiting a bridal shop and trying on wedding dresses for the first time! Even if you’re not ready to order your dress just yet, trying on a bunch of gorgeous dresses will be a fun way to relieve some of the stress you might be feeling after venue-hunting.
7. CHOOSE A VENUE AND SET A DATE.
This might be easier said than done. Or it could be love at first sight =) Anyway, once you've found a venue and a date is set, things will take shape!
8. BOOK YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND PLAN YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION.
Next, you should research and book your photographers.

After all, you want to get to know him or her and become familiar with his or her style of posing.
9. FIND LOCATIONS FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT MEETING AND PUT IT ON THE CALENDAR!
Your engagement date gives you the chance to connect with your photographer, see how it feels to be photographed, and snap pictures for your save the date. Research them locations and plan your session for the best time of year for the location you have chosen.
10. BOOK YOUR CAMERAMAN, CATERER, BAND OR DJ, FLORIST AND PHOTO BOOTH.
Once the venue and photographers are booked, focus on the cameraman, caterer (if your venue doesn't offer one), entertainment, floral arrangements, and the photo booth. Be sure to ask your wedding photographer for recommendations. If you loved his work, chances are you also like his favorite suppliers. Once these important items are taken care of, you can relax a bit before concentrating on the rest of the to-do list.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. It is the spiritual.
