So You Just Got Engaged…

The wedding planners at the Log Cabin & Delaney House often get asked “what should we do next” as the overwhelming feeling starts to set in on a newly engaged couple.  First of all, take a deep breath and relax, because it’s all fun stuff from here on out!

Here is what our team suggests you do as your first priority


Spread the Word: Tell your family and close friends your big news before posting it on social media.


Break out the Excel Spreadsheets: Determine a budget and discuss how it will be divided.


Do They Make the Cut?: Create a list of potential guests. Discuss the lists with parents and begin compiling addresses.


Pick a Place: Do your research and tour venues that fit your personalities. Make sure to make an appointment to see the Log Cabin, Delaney house, and Upper Vista.


Book the Big Stuff: Book your Venue, Photographer, Videographer, DJ, Caterer, etc. to ensure they are available on your date.  Make sure to check out the vendors on!


Pick The Maids & Men: Decide on your Bridal Party.
