If you’re recently engaged congratulations – but before you go searching for the perfect downtown Austin wedding venue you’ve always dreamed of we think you should stop and savor the moment. Check out our guide for maximizing your newly engaged status.
It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of telling your family and friends and the world about your news. However, it’s important to celebrate with your partner the most. Take a day or even an evening to yourselves, pop open a bottle of champagne and toast to your future together.
Announce it to the World
We totally get why you can’t wait to tell everyone on social media about how your partner proposed. However, be sure to tell your closest family and friends first. Things can get awkward if your parents find out about your engagement from your Facebook rather than getting a call or being told in person. Once you’ve told those closest to you, treat yourself to a manicure and take a ring selfie to show off your gorgeous ring.
Now it’s time to celebrate with everyone. Ask a small group of people you know you’re going to invite to the wedding over for a celebration. It can be at your home, hosted by your parents or at a restaurant or venue. Be prepared to tell your engagement story, show of the ring and answer a myriad of questions. If you haven’t set a date yet, come up with what you plan to say in advance.
