Congratulations! You have just entered one of the most beautiful and exhilarating stages of your life. However, amidst the whirlwind of emotions and the sparkly new ring, you may find yourself wondering, "What now?" We've got you covered! Here's a step-by-step guide on what to do after that special 'Yes!'
Enjoy the Moment
The euphoria post-engagement is unparalleled. This moment, however short-lived, is extremely special. Flaunt your ring, relish the feeling, and enjoy addressing your significant other as your “fiancé.” Take some time out to bask in the bliss of this phase, away from the rigors of wedding planning.
Reach Out to Loved Ones( AKA call home first)
Before you make it 'Facebook official', call your closest friends and family. Share the joy with them and let them know how much they mean to you. After all, personal calls are more heartfelt than social media posts.
Insure That Ring
Accidents happen. With something as precious and symbolic as your engagement ring, it's always wise to have it insured. Check out resources such as The Knot for guidance on the same.
Your dream wedding has a price, and it’s vital to plan accordingly. Research prices for venues, photographers, and other services. Discuss finances with both families to get a clear picture of the budget you're working with.
Choose Your Wedding Party Carefully
Remember, quality over quantity! While having a large bridal party may seem fun, it brings its own set of challenges. Ensure you surround yourself with individuals who will support and stand by you, not just on the wedding day but also during the stressful planning process.
