Getting engaged is always exciting. But along with the rush of happiness and anticipation, I know for a fact that many couples feel overwhelmed when they get engaged. With everything there is to do before the wedding, they felt pressured to get everything started right away!
So here are some suggestions that I followed myself. If you are newly engaged, here are the three things that you need to do. Focus on these tips, and I am pretty confident that you’ll feel so much less overwhelmed!
1. Dont hide!
What I mean by this is to mentally stop and be present in the moment. This is life-changing and deserve all of your attention. Most of the time you can get so caught up in the excitement of what is happening that you can fail to really take it in. So, pause for a little. These are stories and memories that you’ll remember forever! Pay attention to what you and your brand new fiancé are doing, wearing, even the places you’re visiting. Definitely some pictures! Getting engaged is a meaningful occasion, and it deserves your full attention!
2. Tell your family and close friends!
We all have a few people in our lives who we need to pay an in-person visit or a given them a phone call about the big news! The first person I called was my grandmother…and my excitement grew even more just by telling her. Think about the people who should hear about your engagement personally, rather than stumbling across it on Instagram or Facebook. You can choose to tell only your parents, or you might need to call all 20 of your closest friends. You and your fiancé will probably have so much fun calling your loved ones and hearing their congratulations. Share with others!!
3. Don’t plan yet
Talk with your fiancé and wait a certain amount of time just to enjoy being engaged. Pretty soon, you will start planning the wedding and making all of the countless decisions that requires. That’s why it can be so beneficial to set a short period of time while you experience being engaged to one another. You’ll be together for a lifetime, but you’ll only be engaged for a short time.
