I remember when I first got engaged. We didn't know who to tell first and what to do. Eventually we told some close friends and they helped us through the process. We were able to choose a date together with our families. Talk about coordinating! Then we reserved the hall- we got our first choice! (luckily). The chuppah was amazing. It was hand-painted on silk (see www.shevachaya.com).
Best wishes and mazel tov!

Shalom and Mazel Tov!
So, you're going to have a Jewish Wedding! What do you do now? The main thing is to stay happy throughout the process. You will get to the chuppah shining, I am sure!
Getting a date and location... I bless you that this should just go smoothly. Remember that keeping peace with the family is of utmost importance. At the same time, you are the star and it is all in all you and your partner's wedding.
Once you've got time and place down, you are ready to start on invitations. This is your chance to really let the world know what you are all about. I have seen some of the most beautiful invitations based on original watercolor painting with wedding themes. Shevachaya.com has invitations that your friends and family will seriously want to frame. Wedding invitations are your first impression as a couple to the world. Make them the best!
As for the rest of the details, it should just flow! Remember- this is your day, and it only happens once. If a hand-painted silk chuppah will make you happy, by all means go for it!
More to come... thanks for blogging with me! Mazel tov!
