6.  If you are having a long engagement consider having an engagement party While you don't necessary need to have a engagement party it's a special celebration of your journey towards marriage and it's a great opportunity to share your excitement and happiness with your closest family and friends and make introductions before the wedding! This may be a way to celebrate with those family members and friends that won't be able to attend the wedding if you decide to elope or have a destination wedding. If you decide on having a long engagement a party is the best way to keep everyone excited during the wedding planning journey!

7.  Talk Finances I know that this conversations can feel uncomfortable at times but you need to have them! Discuss how are you going to pay for the wedding: - Will you be using savings? - Taking out a loan? - Are family members contributing? - If family members are contributing what input will they have on the wedding? - What's your budget?

8. Have discussions about the type and style of wedding you both want When it comes to wedding planning, one of the most important aspects is determining the type and style of wedding that both partners want. This decision sets the tone for the entire event and ensures that the couple's vision is brought to life. There are numerous styles and types of weddings to choose from. Tell your partner how you envisioned your wedding and go from there!

9. Choose a date When it comes to choose a date you may already have a special day in mind, but if you don't, you may want to consider things such as: Favorite season of the year - If you suffer from allergies you may choose to avoid the spring time Budget - if you're working with a low budget you may want to avoid the wedding season or you can check your favorite venues and see if they are offering any discounts for specific dates. School terms - If you're having a destination wedding or if you have guests traveling long distances, having a wedding during the school term may be something you want to avoid. Most likely some of your guests will have school aged children and that means that it can be tricky for parents to travel as they can be faced with hefty fines or childcare. Calendar - Check if there's a bank holiday or any special events happening as this can mean that prices will be higher and your guests may struggle to find accommodation. You may also want to avoid such as father's day, mother's day, sport events, festivals, etc...
