The question was popped and you said yes! Now what? A million thoughts are racing through your head and all of a sudden it seems like you’re already behind on wedding planning somehow. Stop your worrying! Here’s a list of the top things to do right after the proposal:
1. Take a moment to celebrate, of course!
Life is about to get a little more stressful between picking out flowers, setting a budget, saying yes to the dress, and thousands of other details that need to be planned. Take some time to celebrate with your partner the fact that this is the start of your new life together.
2. Shout it from the rooftops
Sharing the news with your loved ones will only increase the joy you’re feeling and we know you’ll enjoy being able to say the words, “we’re engaged” over and over again. No matter how you go about sharing the information, make sure to call your parents first. It’s possible that they’ll be even more excited than you are!
3. Take a ring selfie
Sharing the news on social media is all the rage nowadays, so make sure you treat yourself to a classy manicure in preparation for that initial selfie. This is the most efficient way to let everyone in your life in on the big news and send you well wishes.
4. Insure your engagement ring
This may not be your first thought, but it’s definitely an important one. Get an appraisal by a certified gemologist and talk to an insurance agent about coverage for your bling! Make sure you know the terms of your policy and what it covers.
5. Schedule an engagement photo shoot
Engagement photos are a great way to introduce yourselves as fiancés. Document the bond that you and your partner have and then use the resulting photos for Save the Dates, the wedding guestbook, and other décor for your bridal shower, stag, or reception.
