I Promise, I Will…Now What!?
The engagement guide for the new bride!
After your head stops spinning, you wipe away those happy tears and your feet finally hit the ground; pull up a chair, grab a glass of your favorite drink and begin the journey of a lifetime.
He popped the question, now it’s time to pop some bubbly! Being engaged is an amazing whirlwind toward the journey of a lifetime with the one who holds your heart! Before the questions, the planning and the craziness take a moment to celebrate just between you two.
Tell Your Family
A wedding is a celebration of an eternal bond between two people and ultimately two entire families, so why not involve them from the get-go? Your family will appreciate getting the update from you, and not your social media page. So grab your phone and get ready for happy crying, questions and using the word “fiancé”.
Insta and Insure
Now that you have gotten a manicure and made your bling Insta-famous, it’s time to protect it from any unexpected hazards the world may throw! Call your jeweler and make sure you get your ring insured! You will be so thankful that you did this sooner, rather than later!
SET A DATE
“When’s the big day?” will be one of the most frequently asked question when you start telling the world about your engagement! Sit down with your future hubby and a pick a date that you both love and that will work for your and your family. Besides, this is something you will need to talk about before you can start calling vendors or even book your location!
Establish a Budget $$$
Planning your budget can be a daunting task, but it’s one of those necessary components that will help in guiding your direction of the overall picture! Setting a budget early can help avoid financial stress later on and keep everyone on the same page. Make sure it is realistic and something you feel is attainable and comfortable putting toward your wedding day!
