Congratulations! You're engaged! Getting engaged is one of those life events that you’ll remember forever. If you don’t know where to start take a look at 12 things to do after getting engaged.
1. Celebrate With Just Your Fiancé
There's not going to be much "just the two of you" moments. Before you tell your family and friends, take a moment with your newly minted fiancé! You'll get caught up in wedding planning soon, so savor this time before you let everyone else in on your good news.
2. Take an Awesome Engagement Ring Selfie
The ring selfies are inevitable, many couples love taking post-proposal photo of themselves. Get in close and take one yourselves or ask someone nearby to snap a nice photo of you. It’s a nice souvenir of the moment.
3. Share the News
Sharing the exciting news with the world. You should tell your parents first then other family and friends. Only after you've told everyone closest to you is it okay to post that ring selfie on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and every other social media platform that may exist.
4. Throw a Party
If you prefer to announce your good news to friends and family all at once, you can throw a surprise engagement party. Or, if the news has already been announced, let your parents host the party.
5. Insure Your Ring
Nothing can replace the sentimental value of your ring, but if something happens to it, at least you can get your (or his) money back. Make sure you talk to an insurance agent about coverage in case your ring or its stones ever need to be repaired or replaced.
6. Set your Budget
Sit down with your families and figure out how much everyone is contributing. It can be an uncomfortable conversation to have, but it's better to get it out of the way now so you have a realistic picture about what you can spend.
7. Draft the Guest List
Once the budget is set, figure out who you're going to invite to your wedding. Keep in mind that more guests means higher prices, as catering costs are generally calculated on a per-head basis.
8. Think About the Big Picture
Imagine the type of wedding you both want—maybe it's the kind of event that you’re dreaming about in your childhood or one that reflects your current tastes.
9. Pick your Venue
Now that you have your budget and guest list settled, it's time to pick your wedding venue. You can visit as many venues as you can to have a lot of options. Spacious and place with good ambiance are one of the factors.
10. Discuss a Date
Once the word is out, here's the first thing people will ask: "When are you getting married?" Reveal a date if you have one, or let curious friends know plans are in the works.
11. Register for Gifts
People will begin giving you engagement gifts as soon as the word is out. It's never too early to register, not only to help ensure you get something you like and need, but also to make it easier on friends and family who are trying to figure out what to buy you. Going to one store and decide on a few things for your list will do.
12. Start a Wedding Savings Account
Remember that even a simple, small wedding costs money and sometimes a lot more money than you would ever imagine. A wedding savings account is an easy way to keep cash accumulating for the big day.
