After Celebrating your Engagement and the initial shock of being engaged wears off, you’ll need to start making decisions.

Here are the 11 most important things you need to do to really kick off your wedding planning.

1. Set a Timetable

The minute you get engaged, everyone will be asking for your wedding date. But in reality, you won’t be able to set an exact date until other major decisions—like choosing (and booking) your venue—are made. So first, focus on determining a range of dates that’ll work for you.

2. Dream Up Your Style and Pick a Location

Before you try on a single gown, book a band or sample a bite of cake, look at the big picture and imagine what kind of style and vibe you want to set for your wedding and where you want to hold it.

3. Set Your Budget

Sit down with your families and figure out how much everyone is contributing. This number will affect every decision and purchase you make, so be sure to work out your budget before you start planning.

4. Draft a Guest List

5. Insure Your Engagement Ring

No matter how careful you are, the peace of mind that engagement ring insurance will give you and your fiance is worth it.

6. Choose Your Wedding Party

Now it’s your turn to propose to your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Remember, the earlier you ask, the sooner you can enlist their help. And keep in mind that your wedding party is agreeing to spend their money and donate their time.

7. Consider a Consultant

If you’re a super-busy couple, have demanding jobs or have big dreams for your wedding weekend, then you should hire a full-time wedding planner to help you prepare your entire event, from the engagement party to the honeymoon. You can always trust B Events to handle your big event; we got your back.

8. Book a Venue (and Set Your Date)

9. Hire Priority Vendors

Get good band or Dj, photographer whose work you love, and act fast, you can check more professionals on

10. Shop Dresses

Begin your search by browsing dress photos online (and saving your favorites—you’ll want to take them with you to your appointments).
