First of all, a HUGE congratulations on your engagement! Woo! I genuinely get so excited for couples when they decided to take that next big step in their relationship. I love celebrating love, unity, and commitment. But for real, you’re ENGAGED! AHH! You’re probably freaking out with excitement, wanting to scream it at the top of your lungs, and share the big news with absolutely everyone! I don’t blame you.
Before the crazy starts, or should I say once the crazy stops…I’m sharing my top 3 tips on what to do after you get engaged and you’re trying to figure out where you go from here.
- Take time to soak it all in. Spend quality time with your fiancée. Start dreaming about your big day but disconnect from social media and blogs as much as you can and focus on the present moment. It’s a great way of remaining focused on what your engagement actually means for both of you and your future together.
- Talk to your partner about whether you want a long engagement or a short one. Once you’ve settled on that, it’ll dictate what your next steps should be.
- If you’re not sure if you even want to hire a wedding planner, that’s ok! However, I do suggest you go ahead and set up a meeting with a planner in your area. These meetings are no pressure and it’ll give you a better sense of what a planner can offer and determine if it’s something you want and/or need. If you are moving forward with a wedding planner, they’ll help kick start your wedding planning journey. We love meeting with prospective couples because it gives us the opportunity to hear their love story which we LOVE and give them some insight on the road ahead.
