You want to celebrate this next phase in the relationship and you want it to be good. But you don’t feeling like draining your savings to do it. After all, the real fun is the wedding, right? At Ontario Bakery, we’ve had our fair share of planning around weddings and engagements and we want you to know - you really can have your cake and eat it too; you just need to follow a few simple ideas.
First of all, go minimal. You don’t need to go all out. Think of the engagement as a preview of the wedding. Imagine the wedding and then pull back. Have the party at someone’s home. Or, if you want to book a venue, go with a smaller one. You also have the option of going to a restaurant where you can book a back room or private area.
Next on the list, is to make sure you hire a professional photographer. As said before, imagine the wedding. You’ll have a photographer providing you great photos that you’ll store in an album and look through for years to come. What you don’t want is to have amature photos for the engagement and then pro photos later on. So hire a photographer for both events to keep it consistent and beautiful. You’ll be so glad you did.
Last on the list is to make sure you’re getting the right photos. Have one day set aside for just the couple, gazing into each other’s eyes, holding hands and being together. Then you want the same photographer (consistency) to be present at the party to capture all the fun, the kisses and the general romance in the air.
