First of all, let us congratulate you on your engagement! After all the preparation your partner has done to slip that diamond engagement ring in your finger, he finally asked you to marry him/her. Of course, you said ‘Yes!’; that’s why you found our blog. And now that you’re engaged, you must be asking: ‘What’s next?’
Here are some tips for newly-engaged couples like you on what you should do next.
Enjoy feeling engaged
Many brides- or grooms-to-be struggle immediately right after engagement. They tend to stress themselves out to finish as much and as quickly as they can. But for us, it is important to enjoy the moment. Take the time to be happy about this new journey you’re about to embark on.
You should also thank your fiancé/fiancée for setting up the whole surprise and popping the question with, let’s say, a beautiful diamond engagement ring.
Announce your engagement
Tell your family and close friends about it before informing others, may it be on social media or in person. Those who are important to you deserve to know before anyone else does. Once they all know, it’s time to update your status in social media or post your beautiful ring.
Decide on a wedding budget
After settling in, you can now decide on a budget. Discussing your budget can be a difficult task, but it is an essential part of wedding planning. All the decisions and bookings will be based on how much you can shell out for your ideal wedding.
Set the date and work on a timeline
Discuss with your partner the date you both want to get married on. You can consider the dates that are essential to your relationship or a season you both like. Just make sure that the date you pick is a mutual decision.
If you are into Pinterest, then lack of inspiration is not your problem. There are many ideas that you can get on this site or on any other website. The online world is full of photos and articles about weddings, and we’re sure that you can get something from it.
If you are still unsure of what you want and need real-life advice, talk to your family or friends who are married. By doing so, you can get ideas of what you want, or you don’t want. Then, take note of the important points for reference.
Once you have an idea of what you want for your wedding, it’s time for the next challenging step: finding suppliers. This is where you should start looking for suppliers and booking them, from the perfect venue for you to your wedding rings.
Wedding suppliers usually have websites or social media pages where you can contact them directly for their rates. You can also go to wedding expos or bridal fairs where you can also find promos or discounts.
Have fun in wedding planning
Unless you plan to get married next month, take your time and have fun while you plan your wedding. While there can be stress and pressure in the overall planning, you should always remember that your wedding is a special day. Yes, it needs a well-thought-out plan, but you should let yourselves relax from time to time and appreciate one another.
Happy wedding planning!
