You’re Engaged, Now What? | 5 Things To Do First

CONGRATULATIONS! Oh, what an exciting time lies ahead for you and your fiancé! You’re about to start planning one of your biggest life events, but before you dive into the planning process, read our 5 top tips now that you’re engaged:

Appreciate the moment

The moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. Your manicured nails now have the bling to go with it, but that does not mean heading straight into updating your Facebook status. Take a breath, soak in what has just happened and treasure this moment with your partner. We know you really need to let your Instafam know the latest update in your life, but there’ll be plenty of time for that later.

Celebrate this special occasion with your partner and let them know how excited you are to start this new chapter together.

Inform your nearest and dearest

How you choose to inform your closest friends and family is completely up to you, but know they’d really appreciate the fact that you’ve taken the time to let them in on this big milestone first.

Insure your bling

Chances are you’ll be showing off your diamonds to quite a few people over the next couple of days. Even though that beauty on your finger is irreplaceable, be smart about it and call up your insurance company to insure your ring. If you need any resizing done, now is the perfect time to do so as you don’t want it slipping off your finger – trust us, you don’t want to experience the stress that goes with losing your engagement ring!

Schedule wedding meetings

It’s easy to be consumed by all the wedding planning and talk, but sit down with your fiancé and work out a wedding schedule. Having a dedicated hour each week might just be what you need to stop yourself from turning into a bridezilla.

Let the planning begin

Now that you’re officially ready to start planning, there are quite a few things to start with. We suggest starting with the following before rushing into wedding dress shopping:

Choose your wedding date

Set a wedding budget

Look at venue options

Compile your guestlist

Well, there you have it – these are our top tips on things to do once you’re engaged! Let us help you plan the wedding of your dreams with minimal stress and effort on your part.
