He knelt underneath the romantic starry starry night, with a big bling in one hand and your hand in the other. He shakily asked the most important question of your lives and you, my dear, are in happy tears, grinning from ear to ear while nodding like a crazy woman.
Yay! You are engaged!
Before you go into overdrive and that making the mistakes that every engaged couple liked to make, stop take a breath and read on below.
Treasure The Moment
Don’t be too eager and start taking selfie or even wondering how you look with mascara running down your face. This is the moment and it ain’t going to last forever. So look into each other’s eyes, hold each other tight, immerse deeply into each other in this private moment.
As mentioned, it is a private moment between your guy and you. Calling everyone right away will just spoil the moment. I know you want to give your Nana the great news but halt it for a few hours. Reconnect as a couple and remember what it’s all about.
Social Media Posting of Your Big Bling Bling
You really don’t want to post the news on Facebook when he has not personally tell his family that you have agreed to marry him. Such wonderful news should be made personal and if you have the choice, break it over to your and his family face to face. And if not, at least announce to them over the phone. Let those who are important in your life and your relationship to hear it from your voice rather than the impersonal social media.
You don’t have to rush into wedding planning the moment you wake up the next morning! Even if the time is tight, rushing into planning will just cause stress to build up and turning you into a bridezilla immediately. Both of you will have a lot more to discuss even before you start looking for venues or even wedding theme colors. Flipping through a bridal magazine and browsing a bridal website like iBride.com is allowed.
Scaring Him Off
Don’t turn into someone that not only him, your family can’t recognise. If you are too pushy and aggressive in getting the perfect wedding your way and no other way, you will scare him off, thinking maybe the proposal is a bad idea.
