Deciding to get married is a massive decision and an immense source of happiness to a lot of people. In the days after your proposal, you may still be so consumed with excitement and contentment that you may not give much thought to the practical aspects of actually making it happen. However, as you start to get used to your new situation and realise that you’re now engaged, you will need to start considering all of the small details of the event itself. It can be overwhelming at first. The principal thing that you have to do is get the legal side sorted out. Whether you are going to get married in a religious ceremony or not, it is not an actual marriage unless it is recorded by a legal representative of the state. There is then organising a church (if you do decide to perform a religious rite) and what you’re going to wear.
