I’m engaged! How do I start planning a Chicago wedding?
Congratulations on your engagement!
First of all, enjoy being engaged. Call your family and share with them the great news. Second, start thinking of a wedding date or at least try to narrow down it to a month or season. Third, talk with your fiance and set a realistic budget that you are both comfortable as a wedding is an investment on (probably) the biggest event you will host. Fourth, start creating a guest list and know what is the approximate amount of guests you are expecting to host at the wedding. Once these things are in place, the fun begins and you can start looking at a location for the ceremony and a venue for the reception.
Have fun planning your Chicago wedding and enjoy your engagement!
