TO DO:

  • Enjoy! Celebrate. Go get dinner, pop champagne, enjoy each other’s company… you’re engaged!
  • Share your excitement with your closest family & friends! Make sure to do so before announcing your big news on social media.
  • If you haven’t already, treat yourself to a manicure so you can show off your rock without having to hide your chipped nails.
  • Get your ring insured! You won’t regret this
  • Set your budget.
  • Dream up your day and begin with the big details: day, venue, planner, book the in-demand vendors/your priorities.
  • Begin creating your guest list, it’s a good idea to include parents in this one.
  • Choose your wedding party.
  • Decide if you want to have an engagement party (why not?!)

WHAT NOT TO DO:

  • Don’t try to take on too much. Enjoy being engaged. Planning a wedding should be fun not stressful.
  • Pinterest Overload. Make sure to be “Pinterest Realistic.”
  • Overshare. Keep some details to yourself, you still want to surprise your guests.
  • Buy your dress right away. No rush, take your time with this one. Make sure you finalize your venue first, your style might change.
  • Overthink – remember to have fun.
