Creating A Plan After You Say Yes

Stationary by Cartier

You said yes!  What is the first thing on your to-do list?  The better question may be what should be the first thing you and your beloved should do?  Sit down and create a checklist, and create a realistic budget.

At World Bride Magazine we take great delight in being of assistance to you in planning your nuptials.  We took it upon ourselves to create a wedding worksheet that will simplify things for you.  That way you can keep track of your spending and planning needs during your wedding process.

While all of this information may seem to be a bit overwhelming.  Do not fret.  Go over things together and focus only on what you need and want.  Working with the right professionals will only help guide you through the process to make this journey completely enjoyable and memorable.

One book I am going to recommend you all to read is  Don’t Let Your Wedding Be The Death Of You by David Anthony, Wedding M. D.  It is a quick read and full of laughs with great tips on keeping you on track.

Keep your eyes on the more important things– your wedding day and your marriage.
