Your engagement moment may be one of the most exciting days of your life, so while you are jumping for joy, you also may start to feel overwhelmed at the thought of what is coming next (read: wedding planning). But before you get bogged down with the details, it's important to celebrate with one another and then from there, follow this list of things you should do that day you get engaged.
1. Keep it a secret — and celebrate!
Take some time to soak in your happiness and celebrate what just happened — just the two of you. Spend an evening with just your brand new fiancé and nobody else, taking some time with each other and enjoying the moment.
2. Make a list of must-haves.
For the planners at heart, it may make you feel better to make a quick list together of things you really want to have at your wedding, no matter what. It's good to make a list of that before starting any other wedding plans.
3. Tell your number ones.
When you've let the moment process and sink in, tell your closest friends and family the happy news. That way, in case it spreads on social media first, they know before the rest of the world, and it'll still feel very special.
4. Don't make any wedding decisions.
You may want to spend the 24 hours following your engagement planning your wedding. But before you make any decisions, give it a week or two. Waiting a few weeks will allow you to approach the situation with an open and clear mind. It's important to enjoy the moment before you dive into the wedding planning chaos, as it happens but just once in a lifetime.
