1) I will enjoy being engaged!

It’s easy to forget how special it is to be engaged when overwhelmed with the planning process. Take time to rekindle your romance by planning a fun date or weekend getaway, admiring your ring and just enjoying the time you have with your fiancé.

2) I will DIY something for my big day.

This is a great way to add personal touches to your wedding in a unique way. This can be a fun activity to get your friends and family involved in! On your special day, it will be so satisfying knowing you handcrafted your table/seat assignments or your specialty cocktail signs to be just the way you imagined! But DIYing brides, beware: we suggest getting that personal detail and self-pride from just one or two small projects, and leave the rest to the pros. Please believe me on this one, any  more than three and you will drive yourself nuts!

3) I will start a wedding book or journal.

What better excuse to buy some gorgeous stationary than for starting a wedding book or journal of your journey?! This can be a place where you jot down your ideas, to-do lists and feelings leading up to your day. It will also help keep you organized and can be something fun to look back on.

4) I will figure out my guest list ASAP!

We know this is not the most fun part of planning your big day, but it has to get done right away! So many things hinge on the length of the list, from venue and vibe to how much your budget will be. You will be relieved when it is all sorted out and can move on to more exciting tasks…like tasting champagnes and cakes!

5) I will set realistic expectations for my marriage.

Don’t let the reason you’re getting married escape you in the middle of planning your day! Take some time to set realistic expectations for your marriage with your fiancé and discuss how your lives will be once you say your “I do’s.” This will set a positive foundation as your new life together begins.

BONUS: I will not try to change too much about my appearance for my wedding day.

You are beautiful EXACTLY how you are right now! It is super important that you look and feel like yourself on your wedding day. We are totally on board with you feeling like your best self, but from plans for tons of weight loss, to mermaid hair extensions and from gallons of self tanner to lip-flips, just make sure you look like the person your fiance proposed to. The last thing you want is to look back on your wedding picture and be sad because you don’t look like a version of yourself that is impossible to maintain during your regular life.
