But I am here to help you.

Take some time to go through it carefully: it will save you a lot of stress as you get ready for the big day.

If you are ready for this, let’s dive in.

15 easy things to prepare for after engagement.

Traditional marriage:

In most places, traditional marriage comes after engagement.

If your country is what I just described, then you should start planning your traditional marriage immediately.

Have budgeting of what it will cost you to have a wonderful traditional marriage right without breaking a bank.

Below are a few questions to help you plan effectively:) How many people are you inviting?

1) Which venue do you wish to use? : Mostly,  traditional weddings are done at the bride’s home. But you want to use another venue, then plan it ahead of time.

2) What are the most important things needed?: Try listing all you’ll need to have a successful traditional marriage. You could forget the most important things if you don’t write them down.

3) Would you need a photographer?: Would you need a photographer for your marriage? o  maybe ask your brother to use your mobile phone to capture the moment.

4) Are you hiring sound or what? You can decide to use your sound system for the occasion, instead of hiring one. It depends on you.

5) Choose your date. As you are planning your marriage, the date should be your number one step, as that determines every other thing.

These questions must be answered correctly if you must have a wonderful traditional marriage.

Now that you’ve found answers to those questions, let’s move to the second point.

Plan Your Wedding:

The next thing to plan after engagement is your wedding. Now that you are done planning your traditional marriage, it is time to plan your wedding.

When planning your wedding, there are so many things to put in place to have a successful wedding.

These are very important that if you miss either of them, then your wedding may fail. As I share these with you, take good note of each of them.

The Wedding day is one of the important days in the life of every couple, and special care must be taking to make that day as special as it should be.

You don’t need to spend so much to have a successful wedding, you only have to be creative to get what you want,

Check out the most important things you need to have a beautiful wedding on a budget.

My advice is that you delegate some of these tasks to some other people, so you will not wear yourself out with stress.

Most Import Way to Plan Your Wedding Successfully.

– Write the List Of Those To Invite:

I will tell you how important this is: if you have so many people in your life that you will wish to invite to your wedding, then you must start making a list of the invitees.

This is the most important aspect of wedding planning people overlook.

You will think there’s ample time to do that: but the truth is that if you don’t start writing them down earlier, you will forget so many important people.

Start early; probably from the first day after the engagement. It may take you days, weeks, or months to write:

Carry your jotter around so you can write them down as you remember.

You Need To Set A Budget:

This may not be a pleasant part of your wedding planning, but it is an indispensable part of wedding planning.

The success of your wedding largely depends on your budget.

If not, you will be disappointed after planning and later find out that they are out of range.

So calm down and start writing them down with your parent, or your partner.

Ask your friend about their wedding budget, so you can have an idea of what to include in your own.

Remember, you shouldn’t copy all in your friend’s list, just pick the ones that appeal to you.

Choose Your Venue:

Your next step is to choose a good venue for your wedding.

Put so many things into consideration when making your choice of venue: like the season, the size, and the cost of the venue.

Be sure to visit the venue in person, to make sure it matches your desire.

When you are through with the venue, then it’s time to pick a date.

Pick Your Date:

If you are still nervous about when to have your wedding, don’t hesitate to pick your date immediately.

There’s an affirmation that “once you choose the date for your occasion, you have done the accession.”

Therefore choose your date now. It will be best if you put the weather into consideration as you set your date ( June, to October, can be a good time) the weather is always beautiful then.

You can also look at choosing dates that are significant to you, as well as dates when things will be cheaper for wedding plannings.

Let me leave you here to brainstorm on the best date for your wedding.

Start Sending Your Invitation:

If you have completed the planning steps from 1 – the last, then you are good to go.

Just take a little time to fine-tune your invitation list: make sure you didn’t omit anyone.

Then start sending your invitation. Please, send it on time so your guest will have time to plan for it.

3) Plan Your Honeymoon:

Another important thing to plan for after engagement is your honeymoon.

Where do you want to spend the honeymoon? When is it going to be? Have thought about how long it will last?

You should find a better answer to all those questions if you want to plan a successful honeymoon.

Here are what to do to have a good honeymoon.

Start Your Planning Early:

The best time to start planning your honeymoon is also after engagement. You may not have another better time to do so.

Write it down somewhere so you remember your plans.

On your planning list, write down your destination, your budget, and how many days your trip will be.

Your Destination:

Brainstorm to know the best destination for your honeymoon. Consider your choice of relaxation.

Do you want it on the beach, a 5-star hotel? It is up to you to give yourself the honeymoon ever.


You will need to set your budget for your honeymoon, else you make a mistake. When you set your honeymoon budget, you will know if you can go high or low you can go.

Your budget will keep you from stress about money: because you know how far your budget can take you.

Decide on having the most fun as you plan for your honeymoon:  that will help you to plan.

The last thing you can plan for after your engagement is your family.

4) Planning Your Family:

This is the last thing to plan for after engagement and the engagement ring is placed on your finger.

The earlier you decide how your family will be, the better.

Ask yourself what you want in your family. How many children do you want to have? Where do you want to reside? What steps would you take to make things work out the way you want them?

What sacrifices would you make for your family to be the best? I suggest you start making a list of all you will need to do.

You will refer to it when you get confused along the way.

Again, if there are families you are looking up to, you are free to ask them questions about how things are working for them.

Put everything down on the paper too. But remember that each marriage is unique. Select what you believe will give you the desired results and discard others.


Don’t waste time to start planning your future. The plans you make today will help you succeed earlier.

I wish you the best.
