Where do we go from here?

Now join hands, and with your hands your hearts.

- William Shakespeare
He asked, you said yes, now where do we go from here? 
At White Taffeta it is our job to help you every step of the way.  There are many, many things that go into a wedding and that is why having a consultant (or team) on your side with experience is important.  However, in those first few exciting days, here are some things to get you jump started:
Choose your Wedding Date (or at least month/season).

Factors to consider:
 Time of year, including holidays, vacations & school
 Reception location and availability
 Church/Synagogue availability & proximity to reception
 Time needed to plan the wedding
 Start a Wedding File. Keep your wedding documents, ideas, fabric samples and contracts all in one place!

Set your Style.

It’s a day you have planned for a long time. Remember, it’s your day and there are no wrong answers.

Factors to consider:

 What is your lifestyle? Are you an outdoorsy person?
 Do you prefer formal, semiformal or casual? Long dresses indoors or no shoes on the beach?

Announce your Engagement.

It is completely optional but you may wish to consider putting an announcement of your engagement in your local paper. It’s a great keepsake.

Decide on a Wedding Budget.

Factors to consider:

 Do not spend beyond your means. Remember that it doesn't have to cost a fortune to be your dream day.
 Determine your spending limit ahead of time.
 Include any funds, if any, your family is providing in this budget.

Talk to your Wedding Consultant.

It is our goal to ease the stresses of event planning. Weddings are particularly complex because they are more intensely emotional than most events. Let us help you get started!

Happy Planning!
