You Have Just Got Engaged: What Happens Next?

Congratulations. You have just committed to marrying the person of your dreams. Along with posting a ring selfie and telling your family and friends about your exciting news, there are a lot of things to do when you get engaged.

While some may be excited about the prospect, others may be anxious as to what comes next. It’s a key milestone in both of your lives and one that should be celebrated as you start to plan the rest of your lives together.

Now you have got that ring on your finger, here are some of the things you need to do after getting engaged:

1.   Hire a Wedding Planner

If the idea of organizing a wedding from scratch gives you nightmares, you should consider booking a wedding planner. They will provide valuable support from the moment of engagement through to the big day, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. From sourcing a venue to hiring caterers and even entertainment, a dependable wedding planner will offer key guidance for decision-making, as well as help you cut costs and save time.

2.   Set a Budget

Whether you’re planning on getting married quickly or even a few years down the line, setting a budget for the big day will give you an idea of how much you can spend when it comes to venues, suppliers, and other key elements. While money is never an easy topic to discuss with your partner, doing so early on will iron out any disagreements or confusion later down the line. If you are receiving cash gifts from family, ensure this additional sum is added to your wedding budget and pass the final figure to your wedding planner. Part of their role is to provide a budget analysis to give you an idea of how and where money can be spent to make the best of your big day.

3.   Book a Boudoir Photoshoot

Now that you are engaged, why not offer a special gift to your fiancé as a token of your love in the form of bridal boudoir photography shoot images? This is a special moment to not only feel great about yourself but leave the studio with lasting memories of your time as a newly engaged woman. Whenever you’re feeling low or lacking in confidence, you can look back on these photographs and remember the time you felt like a million dollars.

4.   Seek Inspiration

You may already have a concrete idea in mind when it comes to the type of wedding you’re hoping for, but if not, now is the time to start seeking inspiration. Planning a wedding isn’t a quick process, so the earlier you make decisions on color schemes, floral arrangements, table favors, and so on, the less stressed you’ll be as the big day approaches. Pinterest is a great place to start, in which you can compile a selection of your favorite elements, so you have some direction as to the vibe you wish to create at your wedding.
