Just Got Engaged? Here’s What to do Next
Updated: Mar 22
It's official—you're engaged! Congratulations! We know how exciting it is to be newly engaged, but it can also be overwhelming with what to do next. Now that you've said yes, it's time to tackle all the things that come with getting married—from picking out your wedding bands to deciding on a honeymoon spot. Don't stress; we're here to help! Here are some steps to take after you get engaged.
1. Take Time to Enjoy Each Other and Celebrate this Next Step
We are so hyper-connected these days with social media that we often feel the need to share what's happening in our lives instead of being present in the moment and enjoying it. Getting engaged is one moment you can never reproduce, so after you say yes, take a moment, or however long you need, to be in the here and now. This is the time for you and your partner to celebrate the moment and your next big step in life together.
2. Announce the Engagement
It's time to let the world know your big news! When you're ready to share, you should tell some people first before posting on social media. As soon as you're prepared to tell anyone, family comes first. If they aren't present for the event, call them or plan a trip to visit them and announce it in person. Your announcement should be followed by extended family and then your friends. Now that you have shared your news with your nearest and dearest, it's time to post it on social media!
3. Celebrate the Engagement
Now that the news is out and it’s time to celebrate with an engagement party! After you announce the engagement, tons of people will want to celebrate with you. Big or small, an engagement party is a great way to raise a glass and celebrate with everyone together.
