This is the time you’ve been looking forward to. You’re getting married and have an engagement ring. It’s crazy, but it’s happening, and whether you like it or not, the hours, days, and weeks after that proposal will undoubtedly be a blur (in the best way possible, of course).
There are a lot of things to consider, a lot of people to contact, and a lot of things to accomplish. But don’t be intimidated. You have plenty of time to plan the rest of your lives, but if you’re like most newly engaged individuals, you’ll be eager to tell all your friends and delve right into destination wedding planning. For those in need of a little guidance, here are a few things you should do as soon as you get engaged:
If you’re in the mood for a night out, head to your favorite restaurant for dinner and cocktails! Oh and…splurge a little! It’s not every day you get engaged!
Think of Who you Want to be Your Bridal Party
Consider your closest friends and family members, who have stood with you through all of your breakups and heartbreaks until you discovered the man you’ll marry. When you say “I Do,” they’ll be ecstatic to stand by your side and support you. While selecting bridesmaids can be stressful and emotional, it’s vital to remember that it’s ultimately your decision. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t feel pressured to include particular people in your wedding party.
