You’re Engaged! Now What?

You’re Engaged! Congratulations!  Let some Phoenix Valley wedding industry professionals give you some advice!

I’ll start.  It all starts with the B word – budget.  Decide what is most important to you – the venue, the planner, the photographer?  Just remember that all the money you spent needs to be preserved and so you need to find a photographer who will make your day look exactly how you want!  And make sure you hire a photographer that you want to hang out with you for 6+ hours!  Happy planning!  Yours truly, Diana Elizabeth

Now’s the time to…

“Schedule your appointment with a personal bridal consultant for the ultimate shopping experience.  Your consultant will guide you every step of the way and make buying a gown so much more special than handing over your VISA.  Uptown Bridal loves our brides and our brides love our consultants.” – Uptown Bridal & Boutique

“Find that perfect hair style that is fitting and personalizes who you are. If it’s a destination wedding, think about something more casual and romantic, if it’s in a church you want it to be more modern but some what conservative.” – Vonn Wynn, Hair Stylist

“Decide what makeup style will complete your look – classic, dramatic, fresh, bold, romantic??? Hiring an expert that is capable of all of these looks ensures that you will be flawless for one of the most important days of your life!” – Lizzy Marsh, Makeup Artist

“Beautify. Book an appointment for your lash extensions. We can help you get from bridal shower through your big day to your honeymoon looking fabulash!” – Leslie Church, Lashology Eyelash Extensions

“Find the decor & style for your wedding scenery.  Look for pictures in magazines, blogs, books that you love and create a “vision book”:  is it classic, minimal + organic, or romantic and whimsical.  Whatever that beautiful look may be, I can incorporate the colors, decor and vision you want for this special day!” – Ricki Uster, La Ricki Design

“Not stress about everything you have to do! Instead hire a planner (like yours truly) to ensure a memorable, stress-free planning experience. You will remember planning your wedding as much as you remember your actual wedding day! A planner will make sure that each and every detail is perfect and that your wedding day is a true reflection of the bride and groom. Hope to meet you soon!” – Ashley Gain, Wedding Coordinator
