Did you just get engaged? Congratulations!
This period of your life is just the beginning of more exciting things. You and your partner need to start planning your future together, including your wedding!
There’s lots to do, so start making your post-engagement to-do list early on. Here are some things to add to it.
Break the happy news to your network
Everyone in your circle should know you’re starting a new chapter in your life!
But first and foremost, you two must celebrate as a couple. Your celebration can be as simple as you crying with happiness and your partner feeling excited because you said yes!
After your little celebration is over, hop on a phone call with your family and break the news to them. Next, make your engagement official on your social media accounts. Be prepared to be flooded with hundreds of “Congratulations!” messages!
Get your ring resized and insured
Your gorgeous engagement ring is more important than you think. It signifies the start of the “happily ever after” phase of your life.
If you’re lucky, your engagement ring with fit perfectly. However, in other cases, band size might require slight adjustments. You don’t want your precious ring to slip off your fingers and get lost accidentally. So get it resized as soon as you can.
Secondly, you should get ring insurance. Secure your valuation documents and take photos of your ring. In addition, look into jewelry insurance options to cover any accidental damage to your engagement ring.
Make your bridesmaids list
Put a lot of thought into making your bridesmaids list. After all, your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life, and you only want to be surrounded by people that love you with all their hearts.
Think of your family members and friends who have been by your side during heartaches, breakups, and rough times. They’re the ones who deserve to stand next to you on your happiest day.
