You just said “yes” and can’t take your eyes off the new piece of bling on your left hand. What next?
Tell everyone the good news, of course! But wait…before you text, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook (or whatever social media tool you’re obsessed with) a picture of your hand; put down the phone and think about who should really be the first to know that you are engaged!
Children: Without a doubt if either of you have children, they should be the first to hear the news. This change impacts them the most. Combining into one family is a very exciting time, but it can take some transition.
Parents: If your new fiancé followed tradition, your parents will be expecting a call from you. Be sure to give his parents a call too!
Once you have shared the news with your kids and parents, it is free game to pick that phone back up and share the news with the world! You may also want to consider submitting an engagement announcement to your local newspaper, sending an email to your entire distribution list and getting a start on your wedding website to share the news.
Finally – Congratulations on your engagement!
Once you’re ready, give Sapphire Celebrations a call and we can set up your free one hour consultation.
