STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Jess Levin from CaratsAndCake.com appeared on KCAL9 News on Sunday morning with the following tips for newly engaged couples:

Tip #1
So many couples rush into planning mode without taking time to enjoy being “engaged”. Whether you are planning to get married in 6 weeks or 6 months you have time and beginnings only happen once.

Tip #2
Finance isn’t exactly the language of love, however, determining a budget and how you plan to talk about the wedding spend. Not only does this help get everyone on the same page it helps avoid future conflicts, especially when you go over budget.

Tip #3
Figure out what is important to you as a couple make a list and spend accordingly. If you’re drooling over an amazing designer dress, then figure out how to spend less on another less important item to you.

Tip #4
Your save the date and invitations will be the first moment you define your style as a couple. Bliss & Bone is an amazing local company here in LA that not only does incredible items from save the dates to place cards, they also do wedding websites so you can have one seamless vision both on and offline. The best way to translate your bridal style from your invitations to the big day is using florals. Empty Vase located in Beverly Hills took the vision that started with the invitations and translated that into the florals.

Tip #5
Finding the right photographer to capture it all is key. There are lots of incredibly talented photographers and it’s important you find the right one for you as they will help you tell your story for years after. This is one of the places to splurge because you don’t want to miss a detail of your big day.
