You’re Engaged! Now What?

After getting engaged, there are a few important steps to take to begin planning for your future together. Here are the first five things you should consider doing:

1. Celebrate: Take some time to enjoy the moment with your partner. Whether it’s a romantic dinner, a weekend getaway, or a simple toast at home, celebrating your engagement together is important. This is a special milestone in your relationship, so make sure to savor the joy and excitement.

    2. Share the News: Spread the word to your family and friends. Start by telling your closest loved ones personally, whether it’s in person or through a phone call or video chat. Then, consider announcing your engagement on social media if you’re comfortable doing so. Sharing the news allows you to celebrate with your wider circle and receive congratulations from those who matter to you.

    3. Discuss Your Vision for the Wedding: Sit down with your partner and have an initial discussion about your wedding vision. Talk about the type of wedding you both envision, such as the size, location, theme, and season. Consider factors like budget, guest list, and any must-have elements. This conversation will help you align your expectations and priorities as you start planning your big day.

    4. Insure Your Engagement Ring: Protect your investment by getting insurance for your engagement ring. Accidents can happen, and losing or damaging the ring would be devastating. Contact your insurance provider to inquire about adding a rider to your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy to cover the ring. Alternatively, you can opt for standalone jewelry insurance.

    5. Set a Tentative Wedding Date: While you may not have a specific date in mind just yet, it’s helpful to establish a general timeframe for your wedding. Consider factors such as the season, any important dates or events, and your desired timeline for planning. Having a tentative wedding date will give you a starting point as you begin to coordinate with vendors and make arrangements.

    These initial steps will lay the foundation for your wedding planning journey and help you navigate the exciting process ahead with confidence and enthusiasm. Then you call Elite Wedding Co. to book your wedding team that will ensure your wedding is AMAZING!
