This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, you have an engagement ring and you’re getting married!
Congratulations! It is a great moment and you are beginning a special journey in your life. But what should you do after committing?
The first steps you take after your engagement is the preparation for a successful wedding planning process. After your engagement the next step is to tell all family members and close friends about the great news. Think of those special people who you would like to give the news personally and as a couple.
One way to do this is to organize a dinner or a family meal or a casual meeting and make them know about the big news. Prepare to repeat a thousand times how it all happened, the future brides friends will ask “Did he kneel? Was it romantic …?” Once your inner circle is updated, you can then spread the news in your social networks.
Now that you are engaged, all eyes will be on the left hand of the future bride, so pamper yourself with a professional manicure. Clean cuticles and smooth skin will make your new accessory really stand out!
Click a photo session
In the weeks following the request for a hand, it is important to immortalize that moment with a photo session in the place that you like the most. You will have a beautiful album of photos filled with memories and you can also use those photos for wedding invitations or for a Save the Date
Secure your ring
He has been dreaming of this moment for a long time, now he cannot slip that precious ring from his finger.
And now, that it’s finally yours. The perfect ring. Don’t you want to do everything you can to make sure you keep that ring safe? I imagine that you will want to do everything possible to ensure that the ring can be replaced in case of loss, theft … etc. Once the ring has been insured you will be calmer.
Prepare the budget
Although you are still in the early stages of your commitment, it is worth planning the expenses of your wedding. When deciding a wedding budget, you can have a clear idea of how much you plan to save and in what period of time you want to do it.
In the budget you have to take into account many factors, place of celebration, dress for the bride and groom, photographers, catering, decoration … and also the number of guests that you want to invite in your wedding.
Choose a place
Choosing a place is the same as choosing a date; in fact, the place usually determines the date. Choose a place that means a lot to both of you.
If you have your heart set on something in particular, be sure to call them as soon as possible to see availability. Also, it would be good to visit the chosen place.
You may have several ideas in mind but after visiting the spaces the options will be reduced.
Enjoy a romantic weekend! The two alone!
Since you have been committed to celebrations between family and friends you both have probably not spent any time alone for a while and when the wedding organization starts you will have even less time to be alone together.
Take a moment to disconnect and enjoy. Be sure not to mention the details of the wedding. Yes, there is a lot to do, but for now, enjoy a weekend by the sea or in a rural house to celebrate your commitment.
