Congratulations! You’re engaged! I know this time is SO exciting and you probably have so many ideas running through your head! Before jumping into planning your dream wedding day, here are 5 things you should do after getting engaged:
1. Enjoy the moment
Take some time to soak in the moment and enjoy it together! Before you jump into wedding planning or telling all your friends, go out for a dinner date or spend some time together. It will be a great way for you guys to celebrate!
2. Tell your friends and family
Be sure to tell your family and close friends about your engagement before posting on social media. They will be SO excited to hear it from you first hand! Think about immediate family, grandparents, close aunts/uncles/cousins, and your close friends!
3. Get your engagement ring insured
Make sure that engagement ring is insured and sized to fit your finger properly! Not getting your engagement ring insured is super risky, and it would be so sad to lose! That new bling deserves some protection of its own, and it will give you so much peace of mind!
Have a party with your friends and family to announce your engagement! This is a fun way to kick off your wedding festivities. It doesn’t have to be big, just invite your friends over to celebrate!
5. Decide on your wedding budget
Before you do ANY planning, deciding on a budget together should be your first step! Once you know the numbers, then you can talk dates, guest list, venues, and wedding planners. Having those numbers in mind first will make the whole process that much easier, and help keep your wedding planning within budget.
Congratulations on your engagement! Now go celebrate!
