Getting engaged is a beautiful moment to enjoy with your significant other, whether you are the one popping the question or screaming “YES!” the moment is priceless.
But what are you suppose to do right after the question as been asked, and all you can do is enjoy being on cloud 9 with your beautiful rock on your finger?

3.) Budgeting and Expense Sheet
Talking dollars is typically the least exciting part of the planning process. Find a great medium on the budget you have in correspondence with a your guest count. Make sure your budget would realistically cover venue, catering, rentals, photographer, videographer, décor, dj/band, and catering.
