The news of an engagement often come as a surprise for most, after the excitement, tears and warm congratulations, then comes the big question; when is the big day? As if you have had time to actually think of the details among all of your emotions and excitements.
Your engaged, what a warm wonderful life long dream it has been, wow. During this time you will be faced with emotions, anxiety and excitement. Spreading the news to close family members first is the number one priority on your mind. Along with your jitters will come relief from sharing the excitement with others.
"Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction."

Getting Family & Friends Assistance
help you may get from others can lift a tremendous burden off your head. Planning a wedding is full of complicated decisions, frustration and anxiety. Wedding details are not easily done alone; trying to find time to fit these details into your already busy schedule can be very stressful and overwhelming.
While the idea of getting married is still so exciting we often push that excitement to the back of our minds until the night before the big event, this, is because of all the plans and concerns yet to be taken care of before the approaching wedding day.
During this exciting and tremendous planning time you may be offered help from others, if this is the case Take the Help, small details that can be handled by family or friends will take some presser off of you. If you do not receive any help offers from people close to you, this is ok. Some individuals dont want to get in your way and for that reason may feel more honored being asked for their help instead. Obviously those close to you will be a big part of your planning details, and taking advantage of the assistance offered by them should be accepted and appreciated.
Here are a few areas where assistance could be utilized.
- Booking appointments to meet with vendors.
- Gathering mailing addresses for invitations.
- Assistance with family guest list.
- Gift registry (someone who can tag along as support).
- Confirming appointments.
- Construction of centerpieces, reception and car decorations.
- Transportation assistance for elderly guests on the day of the wedding.
- An individual who can arrive early at the reception to check that everything is in order.
- Host/Hostess to help assist guests to their assigned seats.
- Final cheques and tips to be giving to vendors. (In sealed envelopes include payment and name of vendor, ask someone whom you can trust to hand them out before the reception is through or before vendor leaves the affair, also note that if you are tipping someone who works for the service provider hired, place their tips in a separate envelope and delivered to them directly).
- Reception night clean up (if hall requires a clean up provided by you).
As you can see, the list can go on, there is always something you can assign to someone close to you, making your job easier and giving that person a sense on appreciation.
