Here at The Riverhouse, we’re obsessed with everything wedding-related! From the hottest trends in décor to top food choices and even the proposal stories that go along with the big event. We’re constantly watching and listening from the front lines. Now that we’re in the midst of the holiday season, we’re sure to see a new influx of engaged couples beginning on their journey to matrimony.
Some early planners may have already pulled out the ring over Thanksgiving dinner and many others likely followed in their footsteps with proposals at the holiday dinner table. They may also be planning a romantic New Year’s gesture, or the tried and true, Valentine’s Day engagement!
Whichever route you’ve traveled to make your way here, we congratulate you! You are embarking on one of the most beautiful and treasured experiences in your life and we’re happy to be a part of that journey.
In honor of engagement season warming up, we’ve created a list of the top things to do as soon as you’ve said Yes!
1. Celebrate the Moment
First and foremost take a moment to celebrate what’s just happened. Whether you’re alone at the moment with your partner or surrounded by family and friends, now’s the time to take a mental snapshot of the emotions in this exact moment. Nothing can be cherished more than the feelings you’ll recall at this time thinking back on the day many years from now.
2. Map Out a Timeline
Once you’re ready to set plans in motion for the big day, take time with your partner to map out a timeline. Even if it’s just a loose one, for now, you’ll want to think seriously about how long from now you’d like to wait to tie the knot and what day, time of year and location you both agree on.
3. Work on the Details
With a date picked out, the bridal party selected and some inspirational ideas in mind, it’s time to start getting your dates booked. Be sure to select photographers, DJs, and other vendors you trust and who share in your vision.
Choosing the wedding venue is one of the most critical steps to ensure you and all your guests are treated to a day they’ll never forget.
