Don’t share everything (on social media)

Even though you want to shout to the rooftops that you’re finally getting married, try to limit posting about every single detail of your wedding planning. It will reduce unsolicited advice, questions, judgments and invites from unwanted guests.

Pick a Date

If you’re picking a popular time of year like June or September, make sure you book a venue early and have a selection of possible dates in case you can’t get your first choice. The key is to have a few back up options so you don’t get frustrated.

Buy Insurance

Whether your fiancé proposed with a simple diamond ring, or an expensive bauble, make sure you protect this investment with insurance. You can even add it to your current homeowner’s or renter’s insurance.

Get Pre-Marital Counseling

Sign up for premarital counseling whether or not your religion requires it. These counseling sessions will help you and your fiancé discuss difficult issues that you may face in your life together. Counseling will also help to strengthen your bond and discuss the future.

Have fun!

Most of all, don’t forget to have fun! It’s easy to get caught up in the stress of planning a wedding. But make sure that you remember that this is a magical time in your relationship. So take time to enjoy it!
