You're engaged! .... now what?

Congratulations! All of us here at DYF are so excited for you to begin your journey to your dream wedding! If you are unsure about where to begin, let us make it easier for you. Here you will find a few tips on how to start brainstorming the first steps once you get engaged.


It is time to start thinking about your wedding date! Do you have a favorite season? Do you tend to like warmer weather in the summer months or cooler weather in the fall or winter? Choose a date and time of year that best suits you and your partner. Then, on to the venue!


Choosing a venue may seem overwhelming at first, but this is the fun part! Are you considering a more industrial feel for your wedding? If so, seek out venues with details such as large windows, artwork, metal fixtures, or even exposed brick. Maybe you are considering a wedding with natural elements? Choose venues with beautiful outdoor spaces such as a garden or on a waterfront! Let this choice be a reflection of your personalities and fit your overall aesthetic.


After nailing down your overall vibe and venue, choose your colors accordingly! What colors will your bridal party wear? Will you need to take the time of year into consideration when choosing your colors? For example, if you chose a fall wedding, are you going for a darker palette such as burgundy or dark green? If you chose a summer month, will you want your bridal party wearing a lighter palette such as pink or champagne?

Now to the REALLY fun part! This is our favorite, but we are a little biased.... YOUR DREAM DRESS!
