You're Engaged! That Doesn't Mean You Have Everything Planned

My sister called her boss to tell her she got engaged and after saying congratulations she asked the new bride-to-be who she was wearing?  As in who was her wedding dress designer.  Torey was engaged for maybe an hour at this point.

Don't be surprised if you get some rather specific questions right away.  People - friends, relatives and strangers - are all excited for you and they can't help themselves.

You'll be asked about the date, location, vendors, theme, details and of course your dress.  It's okay to say that you don't know the answer to any of these questions.  Just smile, thank them for their well wishes and tell them that you're still in the early stages of planning and nothing's been decided yet.

Not every woman dreamed of her wedding as a child and planned every detail.  It's okay not to know what you want right away.  Pick up a few wedding magazines, log on to wedding planning sites, browse bridal blogs for ideas and keep a list in your wedding organizer and a folder on your desktop of what you like and want.

It may not happen over night but I promise you things will fall into place and once you have your answers you'll be so excited when people start asking you about your wedding plans you;ll be upset when no one does.
