Here are some of the ‘must do’s at the initial stage :

  • Inform your parents and immediate families of the good news followed by relatives and good friends.
  • Short list tentative dates for your wedding.
  • Discuss preliminary ideas on the type of wedding you plan to have.
  • Crunch some numbers and determine a wedding budget that you can both afford.
  • Consider hiring a wedding planner to assist in the planning process if your funds permit.
