Once you get engaged there is a ton of things that have to be discussed and decided upon. The first two are date and location, and many times the two are entertained. Many times the best locations are booked way in advance and unless you want to get married in an off month you man need to reconsider your location.
Once you pick out the date you’ll be getting married then you need to send save the date cards and invites.

Think about the first thing people always say when everyone gathers and waits for the bride and groom to leave the church to go to the reception. Inevitabley some one will say “they used to throw rice at these things but the birds would eat so much that their stomachs would explode.” Ok nobody is going to argue with that, because your friend is getting married and the guy holding the confetti, bubbles or sparklers or whatever rice alternative there is just wants to sound like he knows whats up. There is another thing called growfetti which is confetti that grows into wildflowers.
