While it can be a happy time, getting engaged can also be a little overwhelming. Don’t worry, we can help.
Here are some tips on what to do first.
What to do First
Take Time to be Happy
Don’t feel pressured to announce it or make decisions immediately.
Announce to those closest to you first
Let your family know in person or with a video call before you announce it to the world. When your VIPs know, then you can post on social media.
Plan an engagement party – if you want one
People will want to celebrate with you. It’s a great way to celebrate with everyone together.
Think about your wedding timeline
People will ask if you have picked a date, mainly for conversation. But again, you don’t have to make decisions immediately. You do need to talk as a couple; and be on the same page.
You don’t have to lock down any plans until you’re ready, but it’s a good idea to gather ideas. Check out wedding websites, magazines, social media etc.
Get engagement photos
What better way to announce your engagement and celebrate your love? It’s a life milestone you’ll want to remember! And a good way to see if a photographer could be the right fit for your big day. I would love to be your photographer and I love a good engagement photo shoot.
I want to share what I see with you. I want you to fall in love with your family time and time again. And if you see it in my images … I am the perfect photographer for you!
Why Photography is Important
I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.
And maybe it’s not just children.
