If your just engaged and have no idea where to start when it comes to wedding planning, we’re here to help! Here are the five things we recommend you do first as a newly engaged couple.


We guarantee the moment you're engaged one of the first questions you’ll be asked is: "when's the wedding date?" But, setting a date is a little more complicated than that. Before you can determine a date, you have to consider things like what season you prefer, family events or holidays that may conflict with your date, and the time you'll need to plan.

With Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, we typically begin planning with couples 16 months ahead of their anticipated wedding date. But, we can plan a wedding in as little as 6 weeks too!


Take time before you begin making any decisions to sit down with your partner and discuss your fairy tale wedding. What are the elements that you want to include? The themes and color schemes you like? 

And, don't forget to think about the unique qualities of your relationship and love story that you may want to include on your special day! A favorite meal, a special song, or particular entertainment element, there are so many ways to personalize your wedding day so make sure to take full advantage!



Now, it's time to talk budget and guest count. Consider the elements that are most important to you and your partner and how you want your guests to feel on your big day. Are you dreaming of an intimate affair or a celebratory party?
