Build Your Registry
Look around your home and think of wish-list items you might need or desire for your kitchen and living spaces. Have you been wanting to make a recipe but didn’t have the right equipment? Or, wanted to start a garden but don’t have the proper tools? Discuss with your partner what you didn’t know you needed until now!

Have a Tasting
Need to pick out your toasting champagne? Have a tasting! Want to dream up a his and hers cocktail? Have a tasting! Caterers, restaurants and bakeries are also getting creative in offering to-go options and delivery when it comes to menu tastings for the big day, so do your research as you make some delicious decisions!

If you’ve already had your engagement party or are recently engaged, take the time to write your thank-you-notes for gifts you’ve received. Consider writing notes to those who may have reached out and offered kind words and encouragement, as well.

Browse for Your Dream Dress
While you may prefer trying on wedding dresses in-person, peruse different boutiques, online shops and wedding magazines to discover new designers or learn about different silhouettes. This is the time to find out what you love, and get excited about different options for when you do try on dresses IRL.
