Congratulations! You're engaged! You might be asking yourself... now what?
Whether you were expecting it or not, there's a lot to think about now. But first, take a breath, enjoy the moment and take it all in. No need to rush into wedding planning if you're not ready. Being engaged needs to be acknowledged and savored, so don't skip over it. But if you are ready to jump in, here are a few things to do to get you started down the wedding path.
1. Celebrate! Tell your family and your closest friends. Be ready to tell the story of how your honey proposed, again and again. Make the rounds visiting with friends and family to show off your new bling and allow everyone to celebrate along with you and share in the excitement. It really is a special time! And when you can, be sure to celebrate privately with your fiance with some alone time. Your lives will only get busier from here.
2. Make it Social Post the news on social media and let everyone know that you're engaged! Take a fun picture of your ring or make a sign as an announcement. Get a fresh manicure so you're ready for all eyes on your hands.
