After the big question has been popped and you have said yes, then what’s next? Spreading the great news of course! Getting the word out about your exciting life changing event isn’t that easy; there are right and wrong ways to do it. Timing is everything when it comes to the announcement of an engagement and you want to inform the right people first so that they don’t hear it from word of mouth. Today, we are going to talk about what you should do next after getting engaged.
Inform Your Family First
You would not want your mom or your sister to find out from someone else that their baby girl is getting married. Telling your parents and other close family member that you have gotten engaged is a big deal and you only get one chance to do it. So make sure before you even tell your best friend to tell your family first about the wonderful news.
Keep Away From The Internet
Many people announce their engagement online but for a more personal touch and to see their reactions, why not tell them in person? This will allow you to share in the joy and see their faces light up after you give them the news. If the person lives too far away and you can’t tell them in person, use the phone. This will at least allow you to hear their voice when you break the news. The internet is ok for telling some people that you are getting married soon but do it in an email instead of using social media. An email is more formal and more personal than a wall post.
Plan an Engagement Party To Tell Your Friends
Have a close relative plan a party and invite all of your friends. During the party keep your engagement a secret from your friends. Towards the end of the party call for a toast and announce the big news. Everyone in the room will be very happy and this moment will be yours to forever remember. But keep in mind that you are probably going to have to invite each guest of the party to your wedding. This is only common courtesy and it will make everyone happy if they get a invitation to the main event.
