We are in the midst of wedding season here at the Canoe Club Ballroom, and we are loving every minute of it! We meet newly engaged couples all the time, and we are constantly hearing about all the wonderful proposal stories! So today on the blog we will talk about what to do when after you get engaged! Here are five things to do right after the engagement! 

Make an announcement

Time to shout it from the roof tops and make it Facebook official! Start posting all those ring selfies, and celebrate with close friends and family!


Start Dreaming about your Wedding

You may have had an idea of what you wanted before your engagement. Now it’s time to narrow your focus for what you really want for the big day! Pick your top three must-haves and then go from there.


Set Budget

Time for the budget talk! Now that you have a more fine-tuned idea of what you two are looking for, and keeping your top three must -haves in mind. Figure out what will work best for the two of you, and start saving those pennies! 

Guest List

I suggest putting a VIP list together, all the nearest and dearest people who have been there for you two will be on this list. If you two both have large guests list, keep in mind this may affect your budget.


Chose Venue & Set Date

Finally, as you begin the search for the perfect venue. It’s so important to look at all the venues you two are interested in, and try to meet the people who will be part of the planning process as well as day of duties. Once you chose the venue, book a date that is perfect for the two of you!
