Congratulations! Now that you’re engaged … here is what you need to do next!
1. Tell Your Parents
2. Tell Your Close Friends and Relatives
Before you broadcast the news to the world, via Facebook and Instagram, pick up the phone and call everyone who should hear the news from you directly
3. Get a Manicure
A lot of people are going to be asking to see the ring, make sure your hands are up for the task!
4. Insure the Ring
Protect yourself by getting the ring appraised and insured as soon as possible. Bernie Robbins provides free appraisals.
5. Set a Budget and Start Saving
It is easy to get carried away planning for the happiest day of your life. Set a budget that makes sense for you and start saving right away!
6. Find a Venue
It can take quite some time to visit all of the different venues you would like to see. It is important to get started early, as dates can fill up fast at the top venues in your area.
7. Read & Get Ideas
Buy a few bridal magazines and get ideas on Pinterest. It’s fun and it’ll help get your creative juices flowing.
8. Get Help
Planning a wedding and taking care of all the details is a big job! Get help. Reach out to your mom, your mother-in-law, and your friends. Make everyone feel involved in the planning of your day.
Don’t get yourself overwhelmed with stress. This is supposed to be fun!
10. Have a Date With Your Fiancé
Remember your sweetheart? Take some time together and have a date. Don’t let every moment be about the upcoming wedding. Live in the moment and enjoy each other.
