YOU'RE ENGAGED! So now what?

More couples get engaged on Valentine's Day than almost any other holiday, If you're one of those lucky couples, congratulations on your engagement! But now that you've said "yes" and shared the joyous news with your inner circle, what's next? Getting engaged marks the start of an exciting journey, but it can also feel overwhelming with all the tasks ahead. No worries, though – we're here to guide you through the essential steps to take after you've just gotten engaged.

  1. Share the Excitement with Loved Ones: Before anything else, spread the joy by telling your closest friends and family about your engagement. These are the people who deserve to hear the news directly from you, preferably in person or through a personal call. Let them share in your happiness before making the announcement public.

  2. Announce Your Engagement: Once you've informed your inner circle, it's time to share your engagement with the world. Social media is the go-to platform for many couples nowadays. Craft a heartfelt post or a fun engagement announcement to share your happiness with friends and followers.

  4. Celebrate the Moment: Take some time to bask in the joy of your engagement. Whether it's an intimate dinner with your partner or a small gathering with family and friends, celebrate this special milestone in your relationship. It's a moment worth cherishing.
