Rules of Engagement: What to Plan First for Your Wedding

Bridal Show this Sunday at the Hyatt Regency… See Details Below!

Congratulations on getting engaged! There are tons of things you’ll need to do between now and “I Do.” To get you ready for the big day, we’ve compiled a list of five important things you should tackle first.

  1. Select a Date:
    Setting a date is the most important step you can take in planning a wedding. The availability of vendors and venues will of course hinge on the date you choose. So get out your calendar and find a day that works for you.
  2. Announce Your Engagement:
    Sharing the good news with friends and family is the next step to take. Make it a festive occasion by planning an engagement party or keep it simple by sending an email or calling friends directly.
  3. Take Engagement Photos:
    Engagement photos are a really big trend with brides and grooms today. Plus you’ll find tons of uses for these photos throughout your engagement. They’re great to use with save-the-dates, on your wedding Website and even on display at your wedding reception.

The bridal show starts at 1:00pm, however there is also a Pre-show Wedding Panning Class that begins at 11:30am at the Hyatt Downtown.

The Pre-show Wedding Planning Class is free and will help you get ready for the same day bridal show. This one hour class is brought to you by the New Mexico Wedding Professionals (NMWP).
