The first thing most couples do after getting engaged is to share the news with friends and family members through a social media post. This is when the engagement is very fresh and the fiancés are still bubbling with excitement, what happens after? After the initial proposal and engagement, there are weeks and even months until the big day and there are so many things to do.
Here’s a quick guide newly engaged couples can follow after saying “yes”:
- Make The Calls
If only everyone you want to share the news with was on social media, your job would be done. Sadly, there are still many close relatives and even friends who aren’t present online. Create a list of people you want to call, not just text. Start with mom and dad, followed by grandma and grandpa. One thing is for sure, you will be spending a lot of time on the phone.
- Commemorate The Day
Getting engaged is just as special as the wedding day. Why not commemorate the date by ordering personalized engagement ornaments? This will be an extra special addition to the Christmas tree and these personalized engagement ornaments can be used years after even after tying the knot because it is still a day worth remembering.
- Get The Ring Resized
There might be a chance that the jaw-dropping engagement ring is a little loose or a little tight. That’s just normal, ring sizes are a little more complicated than dress sizes after all. Don’t worry, you can always get the ring resized so that it fits perfectly on your finger and you can show it off to everyone on your engagement party.
- Decide If You Want An Engagement Party Or Not
Once all the buzz and excitement settles down, talk with your fiancés if you want to throw an engagement party or not. The party can be as small and intimate or as large and grand as you want it to be, as long as you and your fiancés are on the same page about the celebrations.
- Set A Date For The Big Day
Deciding on the wedding date is a big decision that should not be taken lightly. Setting a date even if it isn’t the final date should be done as soon as possible. Deciding on the date early will give you more than enough time to change the date if needed.
- Get Ready For The Wedding Planning
Depending on how grand and big the wedding will be, you will need enough time to prepare for the big day. Buckle down because you will be hopping from one vendor meeting to another in the next few months. Stay organized and stick to a schedule to keep the stress levels down.
- Send Save The Date Cards
Once you have decided on the date and it is official, send out save the date cards. The earlier, the better, especially if it is an out of town wedding. Your guests also need to prepare for the celebrations, give them more than enough time to get ready.
