First of all, congratulations on your engagement!  This is a monumental moment in your life and we’re sure you’re excited.  We know you want to make sure everything is perfect from your engagement to your wedding. This means you’re probably asking yourself questions and contemplating what to do next.  Luckily, you’re in the right place because helping couples is what we strive to do.  With that being said, here are seven important things to do after you get engaged.

  • Celebrate First

You should take a moment to relax and enjoy the feeling of being engaged. It’s a moment worth celebrating and you deserve to enjoy every minute of it.


  • Announcements

Before you put it on social media, tell your closest loved ones first. They should learn about the good news before your friends on your Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok, and Twitter.


  • Get Your Ring Insured

The importance of insurance cannot be overstated. It can save you from a lot of pain and heartache if something should happen to your ring. Insure your new ring for peace of mind.


  • Plan Your Engagement Party

It doesn’t have to be something big. With the pandemic, you probably can’t have a large gathering anyways. Invite a  few people you are closest to. Remember, if they’re on your engagement party list, they should probably be on your wedding list too.


  • Put Down Your Vision

Use paper, cut out magazines, and make several Pinterest boards. Don’t limit yourself while gathering information. You can streamline them later using your style, story, and your budget.


  • Start Thinking of Your Date

You’ll be asked plenty of times, “When’s the wedding?” Having a date in mind will help you create a time frame for your planning. You can start by thinking of what season you’d like to be married in and go from there.


  • Research Your Main Vendors

You’ll need a wedding planner, a photographer, and a caterer. We sometimes refer to them as the big three. Afterwards, you can decide on a wedding venue and all the other members of your wedding professionals team.
