Written by Woodlake Country Club.

Recently engaged? If so, take the time to enjoy your engagement! There will be plenty of time to deal with the hustle and bussle of planning a wedding. Once you are ready to jump into planning your wedding we recommend start shopping around for NJ wedding venues. The venues usually get booked well in advance. Keep reading for more helpful advice!

He finally popped the question! You're high on love and can't stop looking at that brand-new sparkly ring. Then the calls start: Everyone wants to know the date, what the bridesmaids are going to wear, and where you're registered. Suddenly, you've gone from heartfelt proposal to fever-pitched negotiations (read: fights) about the wedding guest list, china patterns, and whether you'll offer one reception entree or two.

Stop the Insanity
Moms are often the first to start asking questions. "The first thing my mother-in-law wanted to know when we announced our engagement was what kind of dress she should shop for," remembers Rebecca Menkens, a newlywed marketing director in Charleston, South Carolina. "And my fiance's grandmother wouldn't stop asking us about the date. She told us to hurry because her calendar was filling up already."

Sound familiar? It's easy to let people stress you out during the "newly engaged" phase. Don't let them, warns Myrna Ruskin, a marriage stress specialist in New York City. "You're probably bombarded with questions from all sides," Ruskin says. "If people keep pressuring you about the date, don't be intimidated. Instead, say, 'Once we come off our cloud, you'll be the first to know the wedding date.' Whatever you do, don't miss the chance to bask in your new status and enjoy those first few weeks free from planning pressure."

Your moms may not be too happy that you've decided to abandon (their word) the wedding plans while you feel out your new commitment. "Some moms are very understanding and laid back, and others will be totally on top of the bride in particular," Ruskin says. "It's important that you respectfully ask your moms to back off for a couple of weeks. Most parents will get the message, even though they can't wait to start helping you plan."

9 Things to Consider To Set Your Wedding Date

Written by Woodlake Country Club.

Congratulations on your engagement! Now it's time to set the date and choosing the date for your wedding is crucial. We know how difficult it can be to set a wedding date so we want to share some advice for what to consider when choosing the most important day in your life.

Picking a wedding day isn’t as simple as just picking a date out of a hat. You’ll need to do a little (or a lot) of research before choosing that big day. Here are the most important things to consider when you’re deciding on a wedding date.

Time to Plan:

You'll want to make sure that you have enough time to plan your wedding - without getting too stressed. Taking at least a year to plan your wedding is recommended and will make for a less stressful experience, but it can be done (if you start now) in nine or six months. Less than six months will be difficult, but many couples have made it happen!

The Season and Weather: 

Winter, spring, summer or fall – what’s your dream season to marry in? Consider the weather conditions in the part of the country where you’re planning on marrying, especially if you’d like an outdoor wedding.

Dream Venue: 

If there’s a venue where you’ve always dreamed of marrying, then check their availability before setting a date. If you’re open to any venue, then you can do things in reverse – set a date and then start your venue hunt!


While hosting a wedding on a national holiday or during a holiday weekend isn’t a total no-no, you should be aware that many of your guests won’t be able to attend due to travel or family obligations and vendors may be extra busy as well. Religious holidays are also important to consider – there are some religions which have specific dates when couples cannot wed.

National Events:

Think about big national events that your friends and family actually care about. If your family members are football fanatics, clearly hosting your wedding during the Super Bowl would be a no-go.

Local Events: 

Parades, sporting events, major conventions, and other local events that will cause sold-out hotels and lots of traffic should be avoided. Call your local chamber of commerce or town hall to find out when major events will be occurring.

Your Nearest and Dearest: 

Talk to your closest family members and friends about any important dates they have coming up. Maybe your dad has a work convention every year that he can’t miss? Or your sister is expecting her baby in the spring. Make sure that these dates are truly important (the person would not be able to attend your wedding) before taking it into consideration. So that means your mom can miss her monthly book club meeting.
