Tips and Advice


If you are now engaged, congratulations! We are incredibly excited for you, as you will now begin planning your big day.

Take a Look at Summer Wedding Myths That You Can Ignore

However, with so much to do, and only so little time, you may be curious as to which tasks you should complete first now that you are engaged.

We believe that every couple should start their wedding planning off right! That’s why, here at Ma Maison, as an Austin wedding venue, we have gathered some of the first tasks that you will want to complete after becoming engaged. If you would like to discover what these tasks are, be sure to continue reading:

  • Announce the News

    Now that you are engaged, you will certainly want to announce your exciting news! By taking part in an engagement photo session, not only will you be able to capture images to present to your friends and family members, but it will provide you with the opportunity to see if you chosen photographer is the right fit for your big day.

  • Create Your Budget

    It’s no surprise that your wedding will cost money. So, creating a budget for your big day will be one of the first tasks that you will want to complete! When developing your budget, determine the overall amount of money that you have to spend on your nuptials. Then, create smaller budgets, such as for your catering and your dress, so that you know how much you have to spend on each detail of your wedding.

  • Book Your Venue

    Your wedding venue is a big part of your big day! After all, without a venue, where would you say “I do”? Therefore, you will want to book yours well in advance. By securing your venue, you can then move forward with other aspects of your planning, such as booking your vendors, and developing a style for your wedding that complements your space.

Starting your wedding planning off right is certainly of importance! These are just a few of the tasks that you will want to complete first after getting engaged.
