Helpful Tips for Those Who Got Engaged on Valentine’s Day

So, you finally popped the question on Valentine’s Day and asked your best friend to marry you. You got a big YES in return. Congratulations! That was the easy part. Now comes the hard work: planning the nuptials. Where will you get married? What will you serve? Will it be casual or fancy? Where will you sit those two cousins that never seem to get along??

No worries. A little bit of planning and research will go a long way toward making your big day special. Bucks Run Golf Club offers these helpful wedding planning tips if you’re celebrating a Valentine’s Day engagement with your sweetheart:

Bucks Run Golf Club Engagement


First things first: get organized. Pick up a three-ring binder for compiling and storing all your correspondence with vendors, notes you take during meetings, and photos ripped from magazines you want to show vendors. It’s also a good idea to create a special email address dedicated to your wedding, and don’t forget to store important vendor numbers in your smart phone.


Is a traditional church ceremony important to you, or do you prefer a simple outdoor wedding on-site at the reception venue? Do you love the vibrant colors of autumn or is a warm early summer wedding on your mind? Or perhaps you want to re-create the proposal by scheduling your wedding for Valentine’s Day one year from now. Either way, season and venue are the first things to think about because they will set the stage for the entire event.


Before you can even think about choosing a venue, you need to think about the approximate number of guests you want to invite. You can then take that number around with you as you tour venues and decide on ballroom sizes. The Knot suggests allowing for 25 to 30 square feet per guest, which takes into account the space you'll need for the tables, waiters, the band and a dance floor.


By this, we mean: what will form the backdrop for all the events leading up to your big day? From the engagement party and bridal shower to the ceremony and reception, it always helps to keep all your celebrations in one spot for consistency. Plus, you can form ongoing relationships with your wedding planners and caterers who will all get to know you, your wants, your budget, and your theme. They’ll become just as invested in your big day as you. Well, almost! Start your tours of local venues with Bucks Run Golf Club. You can kick off your festivities with a much-deserved engagement party on our Outdoor Veranda Patio, highlighted by amazing views of the golf course and a full Quarry Grill Restaurant Menu to choose from.

Then, tour our spacious banquet room -- perfect for all the coming events you’ll be hosting, from the shower to the rehearsal dinner to the wedding itself. Featuring panoramic window-views overlooking Lake Fisher, we pair you with your own personal Event Coordinator who can help you fully customize your event.

Once you have your wedding venue set, everything else will fall into place. Let one vendor lead you to another. For example, your event coordinator can suggest a great florist in the area, and that florist may have some great ideas for a fun DJ or elegant band.

Take the time to celebrate your Valentine’s Day proposal, then come to Bucks Run for all your wedding-related needs. Call us at 989-773-6830.
