You’re Engaged!! Now What?
First, congrats!! You are engaged! From here on out you get to take on this crazy world with a partner-who you just happen to be obsessed with! It’s awesome, it’s exciting, it’s emotional, it’s everything! YOU’RE ENGAGED….now what?
Seriously, what now? Here are five things to do as soon as you get engaged. Yes, before you choose a venue…check out this list!
Five things to do after you get engaged:
- Tell Your Family And Closest Friends
Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, BFFs! They want to hear it from you. Plus, will you every get sick of telling the story?
- Size The Ring
I know you want to wear it, but you run a real risk of losing it forever if it is not the proper size.
- Insure The Ring
If you have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance it can be added to that with a rider (just call your provider). If that is not an option for you, there are companies that specialize in jewelry insurance. (Jewelers Mutual is just one example) It is something you want to wear every single day, you don’t want to have to worry about damage or loss.
- Pick A Date (at least a maybe date)
“Congrats, let me see the ring!” and “When is the date?” Are going to be the first things you hear. So, save yourselves the explanation of why you’re not sure yet, or why you are waiting 2 years, and just decide on a guesstimate to give people. “We are thinking Spring 2019” is all you need.
- Celebrate With Your New Fiancé
Have a date night or a party and just take some time before wedding planning to celebrate the engagement. So much planning and so many decisions are ahead of you, so take a minute, pop some champagne, and celebrate! Then, start wedding planning!
