Take a Ring Selfie
The first thing you need to do is get a manicure to show off that gorgeous bling! Then take a ring selfie and share with your closest family and friends. Make sure to include pictures of the proposal. You can also share the news on your social media page as long as you feel comfortable doing so. Sharing the news on social media saves you the trouble of calling friends you haven’t spoken to in years!
Make Sure the Ring fits
We all know about all the sneakiness that goes behind getting the perfect ring size without ruining the surprise. Unfortunately some rings come either too small or a little bigger than normal. There’s no need to fret, as a little adjustment can make the perfect fit!
Get the Engagement Ring Insured
This is a necessary but boring step, in the grand scheme of things. We get it, you’re excited and insurance is the last thing on your mind, but insuring the ring will ensure peace of mind, as the ring is a huge financial and emotional investment.
Celebrate Your Engagement
Get everyone together, your closest friends and family, a few nights after the engagement, for a beautiful spontaneous evening of celebratory drinks. Be prepared to tell the proposal story a thousand times!
Start Planning Towards the Biggest Day of your Life
Get a wedding planner journal to help create a timeline for major wedding related tasks. This helps to reduce the pressure and keeps things organized. In addition to a planner, buy a bunch of bridal magazines to give you an idea of the type of wedding you would like to have. It’s also perfectly okay to spend hours daydreaming about that special day.
Start a Wedding Savings Account
This is perfect for putting money away for the big day. Weddings cost a fortune these days and having a wedding savings account will help with prioritizing and accumulating funds towards the big day.
Relax and Enjoy the Process
The wedding planning process can be a stressful one, as this is a once in a lifetime event, couples are advised to take time out to relax. It’s a journey that should be cherished and thoroughly enjoyed!
