  • You’re at the very early stages of planning you're wedding and you're not sure where to start

  • You haven’t found a venue or set a date yet

  • You haven't finalised your guest numbers yet and / or are struggling to reduce your future mother-in-law’s guest numbers ;-)

  • You may be feeling a little daunted by how much there is to do

  • You might also be feeling stressed, anxious, overwhelmed and / or panicked by the avalanche of opinions. options, and expectations surrounding you - from your parents to Pinterest to the Rabbi (and everything  / everyone in between).

You said yes. Hooray! You're engaged!


As fun as this stage as there can also seem like there’s A LOT to do… well actually there are only a few key things that need doing.

See below and implement the ONLY things you need to focus on when you're newly engaged.

If you have any questions, ask me inside the Facebook group and I’ll get them answered!

Action steps when you’re newly engaged

  • Figure out what's important to you both and what kind of wedding you really want

  • Come up with a wedding mission statement that you can keep coming back to (watch the first video below if you’re not sure what this means)

  • Devise your budget

  • Calculate your estimated final guest count - this is key to finding a venue!

  • Decide whether or not you want a wedding planner

  • Know what's non-negotiable for the two of you when you walk into the first conversation with your parents

  • Go on venue show rounds and find your ideal venue
