CONGRATS from Elegant Events! Your so excited to start the planning and getting the ball rolling...right? Well STOP!! Take a few days or even weeks to let it all soak in. Take your time when starting to talk about the budget, guest list, date even colors for your upcoming big day. Make a list of what is important to each of you and what is not. What I mean by important is the one or two things you can not live without (example photography is very important because these will the photos you look at for the rest of your life. Invitations are not because guest will just throw them away after they open them). This will help you when it comes to your budget. Looking at DYI invites to help save money so you can spend a little more on your photographer.
