The happiness from getting engaged comes from the fact that your significant other is determined to make you the only one. It takes a lot of commitment and bravery to do that. But after that phase, it’s time to properly think of the next step: marriage.
Talk about it
It’s important that both side realize the fact that marriage is inevitable. It’s not simply about living together and creating a happy family. Marriage comes with lots of legal changes that will benefit the family and children in the long run, so this should be a serious matter for both to think about.
Begin with deciding a date. It does not have to be an exact date immediately, but at least both of you need to agree on the year and range of month. Come up with a list of factors that made that date the best day. Is it economy condition, the season, or maybe the availability of family members?
How much budget are you willing to spend for your wedding? Most couples won’t really be able to guess how much they’ll spend, so it’s best that you set a range of budget and see how far you can go should you need to spend more.
In doing this, think about what is the most important thing to both of you. Is it the place? Is it the photographer? Or is it the flower arrangements? This will help you in allocating budget in the proper place according to your liking.
Look for coordinators and vendors
Preparation has to be done years ahead to make sure that you have enough time to compare and choose the best partners in realizing your dream wedding. Professional Barnsley wedding photographer has to be booked at least one year ahead (sometimes, couples book them two years ahead!) to make sure that he/she will be available to shoot for your wedding.

Decide on souvenirs or bonbonnieres
Which one would you want to include? Will it be something edible or something cute for display?
Some couples want their guests to leave with a something a little special: homemade bonbonnieres. If this is what you want to do, make sure that you do your research early on, too. Try out the recipes and make sure to keep the recipe that you’ll use. If it’s going to be a big party, find friends to help you pack the bonbons nights before wedding day.
If you plan to order, do try out samples before ordering and deciding. Do a thorough checking before displaying to make sure that none is broken or faulty.
Commit to it
The most important thing is being committed to what you have promised each other. Talk about it, make a promise, act on it, and be committed to go through the end of it.
