Christmas Eve proves to be the most popular day of the year for engagements. Year after year, happy couples celebrate their holidays blissfully engaged. But after the champagne toasts and congratulations from family & friends are over, the reality of wedding planning often sets in.
The key is to not get overwhelmed and take small steps to begin planning the wedding day you've always dreamed of. We've put together our list of top four things to do after you get engaged.
#1 - Get your ring sized and insured.
After admiring your new ring, make sure it's the correct size and definitely take the time to put insurance on it to cover loss or theft.
#2 - Set a date - kind of...
Think about how soon and what time of year you want to tie the knot. It's the first question everyone will ask you once they find out your happy news. Not to mention, it will help you narrow down some options once you start the planning process and before you set the date.
#3 - Get inspired!
While you already might have a Pinterest board of dresses, decor, and desserts, keep going! Stay inspired and begin to fine tune what vision and wedding style you'd actually love to bring to life.
#4 - Find a wedding planner.
This one actually can count as two things - you'll need an actual day planner, notebook or binder to keep your wedding plans organized. But, you may also want to hire an actual wedding planner to help you through the process.
