Maybe you’re newly engaged, or perhaps you expect your special someone might pop the question any time. Here’s what to do after you say “Yes!”
1) You’re Engaged, Soak It In
Take the time to soak in the moment and revel in the love and joy of this special moment. This is the only time you’re going to experience being engaged, so savor every second.
2) Share The News
Make the time to share the big news about your engagement with your nearest and dearest over a phone call, FaceTime or Skype. To avoid hurt feeling, don’t share the news on your social streams until you’ve told those closest to you.
3) Get Engagement Ring Insurance
Get insurance for that beautiful engagement ring.
4) Set Priorities
Sit down with your beloved over coffee or cocktails and discuss the vision of your wedding experience. Determine your mutual priorities before you start scheduling tours or making plans. Place the things you agree on at the top of the list and come to an agreement of the placement of the other items on the list. You will be so glad you did.
5) Define a Wedding Budget
Talk with the members of your tribe that may be contributing financially to the celebration and define the level of investment you are comfortable making in this experience. This will allow you to shop more effectively for wedding day partners and save you lots of time as you go.
6) Draft Your Guest List
7) Set the Date
Identify your availability, preferred season, and dates to celebrate.
8) Book Your Venue
Once you have considered your options and confirmed they are within budget, it’s time to reserve your venue.
9) Hire a Wedding Planner!
Hire an experienced wedding professional to bring your wedding vendor team together and bring your vision to life.
