First Things First

It is so easy for a bride to get carried away and start the planning process by first doing the things she likes, instead of what makes the most sense. For example, there is no need to purchase your dress before securing your date and venue. I wanted to share some tips on prioritizing your time and your responsibilities right after he pops the question! Here are the top five things you need to secure right after that ring goes on your finger: 1. Choose your date! Deciding on a date with your fiance is one of the most exciting decisions.

Hurricane Joaquin decided to crash our wedding so I wasn't really sure what to expect when it came to pictures.
