Cupid’s Advice:

Unless there’s a reason to rush, enjoy your engagement!

1. Relax: You have all the time in the world to play the role of husband or wife.  Take time to settle into the idea of being betrothed to your loved one.

2. Whip out the calendar: Sit down with your partner and figure out what needs to be planned, and when.  Make sure you work on the time line the two of you set together, and keep your family and friend’s influences to a minimum.  This is your day!

3. Envision your perfect day: You may both have very ideas of what your wedding looks like.  Be open with your husband- or wife-to-be and list the must-haves.  Compromises are inevitable, and it’s best to lay out the groundwork early.
