You recently got engaged? Congratulations! The most common question that arises after the shock and awe wears off is: what now? Yes, when the wedding is over, you’ll be married to the person you love the most in this world; but before you get to that point, there’s a few things that you must do immediately.
Research Wedding Venues
The first thing you really need to do is pick a wedding venue. Naturally, you’ll need to decide on a price range. Do you want to host it somewhere that’s low key and inexpensive? Or would you rather have an extravagant wedding? If you’re interested in a more extravagant and elegant vibe, then we recommend that you check out the Society Room at Hartford.
Pick Your Maid of Honor & Best Man
There’s a lot that goes into planning a wedding; and even if you really do have it all figured out, it’s nice to have some backup. Your best friends will want to help you. Both the maid of honor and best man are responsible for having your back through all of it. Why stress out about having to pick out the right suit or dress alone? Your best man and maid of honor will happily help you make the right decision. So, how do you pick one? Easy: pick the 1 person you know that you have always been able to count on. For some, it’s their brother, sister, or cousin. For others, it’s that person they’ve known since middle school.
Pick a Date for Your Wedding
Many wedding venues get booked for dates that are far in advance. In many cases, you may be looking at dates one year out, minimum. That said, it’s best to decide on the time of year in which you want your wedding to occur. Do you want a summer wedding? If the idea of a summer wedding makes you sweat, then what about the fall? Fall time in Connecticut means it’s not too hot or too cold. All in all, it’s a perfect balance. But whatever you decide, book your venue as soon as possible! The Covid-19 pandemic has created a huge backlog of weddings- with new ones competing for dates with rescheduled ones that were forced to postpone due to gathering restrictions.
