Take Time to Bask in the Moment After the Engagement
From the moment you and your fiancé get engaged, you will both feel like you’re on top of the world and ready to tell everyone. Wait! Make sure you take the time to enjoy the moment! You don’t want to remember the day of your engagement with endless phone calls or taking pictures of the ring and texting friends on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Being present in the moment and taking the time to bask in the promise of forever with your partner is the greatest and most precious thing after the engagement. Dedicate this day to relax and enjoy the news, just the two of you, before telling anyone else!
You Agree on Who’s Invited
Don’t hurry to hand out verbal invites until you and your partner have a clear vision of what you want for your wedding. You need to know your budget, venue, and other important details. For example, if you prefer to host an intimate event with your closest family and friends and don’t want to make tough decisions, don’t invite anyone before having a very clear vision.
Discuss the Wedding Date with Your Very Important Guests Before Setting it in Stone
You and your partner may think you’ve decided on the perfect date for your wedding, but it could turn out that this day is not so convenient for your most important guests. Think about the flights and hotels — they could be more expensive around that time of the year. If some of your guests have kids, it might be very challenging or even impossible for them to make it.
You simply need to know that after the proposal, you just have to take time to relax and enjoy each other. It’s not necessary to have all the answers right away. Take the wedding planning process at your own pace, and remember to be happy because you’re marrying the love of your life!
