Valentine’s Day – What to do when you get engaged!

February 13th, 2016

Valentine’s Day – What to do when you get engaged!

In case the aisles of heart shaped chocolates, cuddly toys and roses in supermarkets weren’t enough of a reminder, Valentines Day is just around the corner!

Unsurprisingly the 14th February is the second most popular day of the year for proposing to your loved one (Christmas being the most popular). And it is a leap year so ladies, you can pop the question too! We often see a spike in enquiries in the weeks following this romantic date so we thought we’d give future brides and grooms list of thing to do when you first get engaged.

  • Tell your relatives! Before posting that all important facebook status, phone your parents, grandparents and aunties who perhaps aren’t avid social media uses. No one likes to be the last to know – especially not close family.
  • Get that ring insured – need we say more?
  • Discuss dates. It doesn’t have to be specific day but an idea of month and year will make the task of chatting to suppliers so much easier.

HINT: Winter weddings are usually cheaper than high season summer weddings so if you’re on a tight budget, you might still be able to afford the venue of your choice with a winter wonderland theme!

  • Buy wedding magazines, scan Pinterest and put together an idea of your ideal wedding. Themes, colours, venues, dresses – it’s amazing the inspiration you can gather online these days.
  • Phone Best Intent Marquees!
