Just got engaged?
Are you entering the new year as you start to plan the wedding of your dreams?
That just got engaged feeling is amazing and this exciting time should be cherished and celebrated for all its worth. Especially if you got engaged at Christmas – sharing this time with family and friends is what it is all about. Toast endlessly to you and your fiance, for this is one heck of a lifetime goal.
However, January can be really hard for some – Christmas has come and gone, new year celebrations went far too quickly, most are returning to work, children are back at school. January is a time where the excitement of Christmas has gone and the ‘blues’ certainly kick in.
Not on our watch!
January should be super exciting, it’s a new year filled with so many possibilities! So many exciting wedding opportunities await for those that have just got engaged. Let us help you maintain the excitement! Here’s why starting planning in January is so great:
In January, wedding planners start a fresh year and may have some availability for the year ahead. If you have just got engaged and decided that you need the help of a wedding planner, it is an important time to get your planner booked for your wedding day. Most planners only take on a maximum number of weddings per year and key dates during the summer may get booked up. Ensure that you get the perfect wedding planner for you by booking a consultation.
January is THE best time to shop for your wedding dress! Firstly, a whole new season of dresses arrive in bridal boutiques. Most places will start to receive all of the new styles whilst still having some of the older lines in stock. Which means that if you have just got engaged or if you haven’t started to look for your dress yet, you can have the best of both. Secondly, at this time of year most boutiques hold sample sales to get rid of old styles and make way for more of the new. This is perfect if you know what you want and you are looking for a bargain! Finally, for those brides getting married in the late summer, January is crunch time for you to choose THE ONE. Most dresses take six months to arrive and then you need a little time for alterations – leaving you with just enough time! Get booking those bridal appointments…
New year’s resolutions come and go in January, with Forbes magazine quoting that “25% of people actually stay committed to their resolutions after just 30 days, and only 8% accomplish them.” This January, don’t make a resolution, instead dedicate yourself to getting your wedding planned. Attending wedding planning consultations to chat about all things wedding, or attending bridal appointments with a loved one is the perfect thing to do on a cold, miserable January day. There’s nothing like starting a new diary in January and filling it with consultations and meetings with wedding suppliers.
All suppliers are looking to fill their diaries for the upcoming year. January is a great time to contact suppliers as they are looking to fill up diaries with plenty of bookings. So be the first to get in there, rather than waiting too long!
Sending out Save The Dates in January is a great way to start the year. This is a perfect way to announce your engagement to all those you would love to share your big day with. With Christmas over and the new year beginning, everyone looks forward to warmer climates and summer days. This means booking holidays and researching get aways is high on everyone’s list. Get your Save The Dates out in January to ensure everyone arranges themselves around your fabulous day!
Well, we hope these reasons have given you a boost as to why January is so amazing! Not only should you set goals for yourself in January but also for your wedding.
