Congratulations to all the newly engaged couples! There were a lot of engagements this holiday season, I personally know of 3 that happened and I’m sure there will be more to come with Valentine’s day coming up. Some of you are probably eager to start planning, but I want you to take a moment and just enjoy your engagement. It is really a special time, so enjoy it for a bit before you get caught up in all the wedding planning. When I got engaged, my fiance and I were travelling at the time, so we just spent the rest of our vacation (and then some) just being happy together and basking in the afterglow of the moment. I was really happy that we took that time because once you start planning your wedding, things will change. I don’t mean that your relationship will change, but the focus changes from the present to the future. I just want to remind you that it’s important to live in the moment and enjoy your engagement now.

If you are already starting to think about your wedding plans and are feeling overwhelmed and are interested in a wedding planner or just want to learn more, check out the recent Wedding Planner Series that I wrote to help demystify wedding planners. It will walk you through what a wedding planner is, what we do and how we can help you. While I may be biased, I truly believe every couple needs the guidance of a wedding planner because in the end we give you the freedom to live in the moment and make some great life long memories.
Congrats again and remember to enjoy it!
