Take a well deserved celebratory moment with your significant other. Go to dinner just the two of you, stay up late with a bottle of champagne. Call your closest family and friends to share the great news!

Ladies, Treat Yourself!

Have your nails professionally done. Everyone will be asking to see that beautiful sparkler on your left hand, so your nails should be clean and manicured!

Start Thinking of a Few Potential Dates

There’s no need to get terribly specific at this point, but you can start to think about the time of year you’d like to get married (Spring vs. Fall) or any particular months you’d like to avoid (December because of holiday commitments, March because of too many family birthdays, etc.)

Build Your Tribe

Start thinking of those important people who you want to be a part of your wedding. Not only the bridal party, but important family members who may be readers, ushers, bachelorette party invitees and more.

Talk Money

Find out who will be contributing to your wedding budget, and the amount they are offering. Select a budget based on the contributions, and begin to build your financial breakdown in your Aisle Planner Budget tool.

Hire a Wedding Planner

Your planner will be absolutely essential as you embark on the journey of finding a venue, building your event partner team, establishing your creative vision and most important, keeping you on budget!

Start Building Your Guest List

Start prioritizing who you’d like to be at your wedding, based on the number you can financially afford. You’ll need estimated guest count as you’re considering venues, catering teams, ceremony sites and more. Remember to allow for a number of invites for both parent groups if they’re contributing to the budget.
