It may be the most exciting day of your life! While you’re feeling all those emotions of finally being engaged to the love of your life you may also start to feel overwhelmed with all that comes next. Before you are overcome with analysis paralysis it’s important to remember to celebrate the moment with each other, and then consider the following list for things to do the day you get engaged.
- Keep it secret and celebrate! Take some time for just the two of you. Soak it in! Celebrate! Everything else will come later but for now it’s just the two of you! Spend the day, the evening, whatever you need but spend it with your new fiancé and enjoy it. The strength and joy that comes from taking in the moment will help you in the planning months ahead.
- What are your must-haves. Take a moment together and make a quick list of all the must-haves for your wedding, the things you really want no matter what. This will make you feel better and stay focus before starting any other wedding plans.
- Share with the closest. After you’ve soaked in the moment and processed all the excitement for your future, share it with those very closest to you so they can share in the happy news. In case it spread by social media, those in your inner circle will know before the rest of the world does. Sharing with them will be a special moment!
- Wait to make any wedding decisions. Don’t jump right in planning in the first 24 hours. In fact, it’s best if you wait a few weeks to let things settle in, letting your feet land on the ground again, with a clear head to begin making plans. There will be plenty of time for planning. Again, take in the moment and joy since it only comes once in a lifetime and then after some time, begin your plans.
