Engaged? What next.

Before we start, congratulations to you! If you’re significant other has just got down on one knee and popped the question, you’re probably feeling all kinds of happy right now. With that elation also comes the nerves of something new and reaaally big, so we’re here to help. If you’re thinking engaged? What next… take a glimpse at these vital steps you should take next, before the proper wedding preparations kick in!

Call EVERYONE You Know

This part is probably the least stressful, most exciting thing to do after you get engaged. The few hours, days or even weeks when no one else knows but you and your SO are really special. However, letting all your loved ones know the happy news is bound to put a smile on their faces. The one and only golden rule for this is not posting an excited status on Facebook before you tell your family. You don’t want to upset anyone important before the big day.

Set a Date(ish)

Nothing else can get moving unless you decide on the time of year you want to marry. Once you’ve settled on that, pick a month and even try to narrow it down to a weekend. This way you can start on all the other preparations as soon as possible. Make sure you open up the lines of communication for this decision. It’s a huge day for both you and your fiancé so the date needs to be perfect! Engaged? what next.
