What to do Once you get Engaged
25 May 2017
Congratulations, you've found the love of your life and have decided to settle down together! You've just got engaged to the person of your dreams but what comes next? When do you tell everyone, when should the wedding planning begin, when should the hen party planning begin? These are all the questions that will circle around your head (once you've calmed down a little) after getting engaged. Lucky for you ladies we're here to help you out!
Before getting into all the hen party and wedding planning why not just enjoy each others company for a while first. Of course, you're probably dying to let the whole world know that you are getting hitched but taking it all in with your other half for a little while is probably the best idea. This doesn't have to mean one or two weeks a day or a weekend works perfectly. This will give you the chance to plan who you're going to tell first and how you're going to tell them!
Now's the time to get the word out there and let your nearest and dearest know you're getting hitched. Tradition is you start with the bride's parents, then the grooms and then work you're way from there. Make sure that you have all of the important bases covered before moving onto the public announcement.
Get the word out to everyone else. Now that you've told the most important people in your life about your engagement it's time to tell everyone else you care about. This can be done by a post on social media or the good old fashioned way with a post in the newspaper, like the stunning Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter. This idea is so sweet but so simple. We love it!
Get that rock on your finger insured. Chances are that the engagement ring is going to be one of your most valuable possessions for the rest of your life so make sure that you have it insured. As much as we all hope nothing will happen to the ring accidents happen all the time!
This is where things get really fun, it's time to pick your bridal party! For a lot of ladies the women they were going to choose for the hen party has been a given for years for others they will need to think about it a bit more before making the all-important decision. There are so many fun ways to propose to your bridesmaids and maid of honour and they're all on Pinterest! Choose wisely ladies they'll be planning the hen party!
Let all the wedding planning begin. With the help of all your wedding party start planning everything from the dress, the venue, the ceremony and everything else that goes along with it.
