If you have recently got engaged, then first of all congratulations! Planning a wedding should be fun, not a headache, and you will want to put your own personal stamp on the big day and make it enjoyable for the both of you and your guests. The first thing to do, after you finish celebrating your engagement, is to sit down together and work out what you would both like from the day. Do you want a large party, or a more intimate gathering? Do you have large and involved families or a small group of friends? This will help when you decide the venue, as you will know how many people you are catering for.
