Getting proposed to is one of the most exciting things that can happen to an individual. You’ve made it to this point, your significant other made the decision to ask you to spend forever with them, and you said yes. But once the excitement of the moment has settled down a bit, you may be wondering what to do next. Here are a few things to do once you’re engaged. 

He Proposed You Said Yes Whats Next 300x200 - He Proposed, You Said Yes, What's Next?


The proposal was probably one of the most exciting moments of your life to date, so no need to rush it away. We recommend celebrating for as long as you feel appropriate. All too often people make it a priority to share the experience with the world, but it’s just as important, if not more important, to experience and celebrate it for yourself. Savor this magical time that only the two of you are involved before you start spreading the news on social media. 


Tell Your Closest Friends and Family

Once you’ve celebrated enough with your fiancè, it’s time to tell your closest friends and family. The conversation, ideally held via a phone call or in person, will make a bigger impact on your loved ones than you may know. They’ll appreciate being one of the first ones to know about the newest chapter of your life. No matter how tempting it is, refrain from NOT picking up the phone and calling your closest friends and family about your engagement. Getting the news from a mass text, social media post, or mass email is less than ideal. 


Get Your Ring Insured

 Nothing can replace the sentimental value of your ring, but if something happens to it, at least you can get your (or his) money back. Your engagement ring is probably one of the most prized and pricey pieces of jewelry you now own. That’s why it’s important to have it insured just in case it is ever lost, stolen, or something else happens to it. If you have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, it would be a good idea to add the ring to the policy.


Set a Date

After the “congratulations” and the “let me see your ring”, the next question people usually ask is when is the wedding. It will save you a lot of headache if the two of you come up with a tentative wedding date. It doesn’t have to be set in stone or anything specific; you can give a vague answer like the spring of a specific year or in a number of months or years. Plus, having a tentative date will help you start planning the wedding. 


Start Planning the Wedding

Eventually, you and your fiancè will need to sit down and start planning the wedding. Do you want a small wedding or a large one? Where do you want to get married? Do you want to do an indoor or outdoor wedding? There are a lot of questions you need to answer throughout the process of planning your wedding. Having a wedding coordinator can help take away some of the stress of planning a wedding, and having a dependable event rental company will make pulling off your ideal wedding possible.
