WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU JUST GOT ENGAGED
Updated: May 17, 2021
10 tips after the engagement
01 TAKE SELFIES
Take photos and share those stunning and wonderful moments with others after the man proposes and places the ring on your finger with unimaginable feelings. You can share it on all of your social media platforms, letting your peers, coworkers, family, and other close friends know about it.
02 PARENTS MUST KNOW
One of the most important aspects is that your parents on both sides are aware that you are already engaged to someone you adore. It's best to contact them right away or invite them to your wedding so that you can receive their blessing.
03 START PLANNING YOUR DREAM WEDDING
Imagine your dream wedding and figure out how much it would cost to make it a reality inside your budget. Always keep your plans realistic by making a checklist that covers things like agreeing on a budget and who you'll invite. The kind of wedding you want to have, the venues you'd like to use, the vendors you'd like to work with, and so on.
04 ENGAGEMENT PARTY
Traditionally, only close friends and family were invited to celebrate future couples. An engagement party is the first public recognition of a couple's engagement, and it's a perfect way to celebrate the union while also introducing them to their extended families. On the other hand, the tradition of the groom asking the bride's parents for their blessing is still very common. It's a way of expressing affection for the bride's kin.
05 GET RING INSURANCE
What to Look for?
The fine print is essential when selecting a provider and policy for your ring insurance. Here are some things to think about: the COVERAGE (A good policy should cover all eventualities, including robbery, injury, and an unintentional drop down the garbage disposal.) Make a special note of any circumstances that aren't covered), REPLACEMENT(How will your rings be replaced by the insurance company?
06 PUT A TIMELINE FOR YOUR WEDDING
There are certain decisions you’ll need to make before you can start creating your wedding day timeline. If you can answer these proposals, you’re reasonably ready to start planning your wedding schedule!
07 HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER
You should hire a wedding planner to help you build a timetable if you don't know-how, to ensure that the ceremony runs smoothly, to coordinate with suppliers, to turn your vision into reality, and to relieve stress. Delegating each role to someone trustworthy and capable of achieving outstanding results will help you produce the best results possible.
08 HAVE A PRENUP PHOTOSHOOT
The main goal is for you to get to know your photographer so that they can get to know you as a couple. Always be confident in front of the camera and don't be cautious. You should spend some time in a low-pressure environment learning about and overcoming your fears of being photographed, as well as acting as models in front of the camera. Months before your wedding, you will most definitely receive a range of romantic and enjoyable photos.
The decision to have a pre-shoot is entirely up to the couple, particularly if you're nervous about being in front of the camera. A pre-shoot is a brief photo session with your wedding photographer that takes place three to six months before the wedding.
09 FIND A PERFECT VENUE FOR YOUR WEDDING
The importance that couples place on privacy varies greatly depending on the location. If you're holding a daytime event in a public place like a park, beach, or botanical garden, expect strangers to walk by. They could smile and wave as they pass by, wishing you well or bringing you a thoughtful gift. If that's okay with you, go ahead and reserve your dream spot.
However, this sign isn't just for outdoor weddings. Banquet halls and hotels often host several events at the same time. You might hear karaoke-loving guests belting Madonna through the walls if other events are going on nearby, or you might reach them over the hot-air dryers in the bathroom if other events are going on simultaneously in nearby rooms. If this worries you, try to prepare your wedding for a time when there won't be another on the same day.
If that's not feasible, go to the venue on a dual-party night to see how the sound travels and if there are any other big issues before making a decision or making changes. You may even rent out a restaurant, gallery, or large conference center for your reception, making it a guest-only affair. Inquire about available protection at your location to keep wedding crashers at bay, or anywhere else your venue is located.
10 ENJOY THE LAST DAYS OF YOUR SINGLENESS
It's important to enjoy each step of our life's journey; if you let things happen and allow God to write your love story, and if you wait patiently rather than rushing things, you'll find satisfaction and joy as you trust His perfect timing.
Being single is one of the most exciting moments and experiences you may have along the way, but getting married adds another dimension of excitement and the chance to embark on a journey with the love of your life and begin to develop what we refer to as a "family" as you plan for your wedding day, when you face each other and make your vows in front of God and your friends. It is a blessing to love, not to find the one, but to become the one he or she seeks for the rest of his or her life.
