Cheers to You and Engagement Season!

With the temperatures cooling down, pumpkin spiced lattes in hand, family gatherings being planned, and the holidays literally weeks away, we want to take the time to raise our glass to you, our future YJ Bride, and the exciting engagement season ahead. 

Did you know 40% of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentines day? This is so exciting, but what do you need to be ready for if you get asked those four exciting words? We are here to help and share some of the industry secrets and what to look for when booking your wedding vendors! 

With only 52 weekends a year, getting that perfect wedding date can be very competitive and stressful. As you begin picking your creative team to help you with your wedding, begin by hiring Your Jubilee! 

We strongly believe that hiring a planner can relieve stress and save you money throughout the process. You are only planning a wedding once, we plan weddings for a living, so we are looking out for you and your best interest and bringing in the correct vendors, in your price range, to help add special touches to your big day.  Keep Calm and Hire a Planner has more helpful information on hiring a planner and why this is important first step. 

As you begin looking into other local vendors it is important to look into these 3 things: reviews, pricing, and photos.  

Your Jubilee is featured on Wedding WireThe Knot, and YelpWe love using Wedding Wire to connect with our brides because it also gives us an outlet to connect with local vendors. We can friend and endorse each other so you can see who we love to work with and start creating your list of vendors you want to meet and connect with. 

Before you begin to search vendors, you and your fiancĂ© will begin to build a wedding timeframe and budget. From there you will be able to select the vendors that fit within your wedding budget. Like us, most vendors offer various packages and are able to customize their services based on your individual needs. 

We are a visual generation… hello Pinterest! About 50% of couples admit to having a secret Pinterest board before they are engaged and have some idea of the color, style, and look of their wedding day. This is why pictures from your future vendors are so important to you! You need to make sure their aesthetic and vibe matches yours so on your big day there are no surprises. We love to showcase our YJ Brides through our blog, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest pages. You can also view past events posted by our past YJ Brides on our Yelp and Wedding Wire pages. 


During your busiest times you will be spending 15 hours a week planning your wedding. Being prepared, hiring the right, integral, and fun vendors will take so much off of your plate and help you enjoy this special time. Congratulations, we hope we can be a part of this special time, be sure to read our blog Top 10 Things to do Once Your are Engaged and enjoy this beautiful time with your spouse!
