Your what? 

I love hearing couple's engagement stories because every single one is different and seeing them light up when they tell the story is so incredible to see! Here are 5 things you need to do after you get engaged. 


People will immediately start to ask you a million and one questions. When's the date? What are your colors? I'm in the wedding party right? Where are you having it? And the list goes on and you may have the answers right away and that's awesome and you may not and that's totally okay too! 

We get so wrapped up in wedding planning and all the questions that come with an engagement that we forget how much fun the engagement time can be. It's a time to have fun and plan not only your wedding day, but what your life is going to be like after the wedding. And those are important conversations to have. 

So if you don't what your whole wedding planned out from the start and want to have a long engagement (ours was 2 years!) or if you want to elope and get married in two weeks it's okay! As long as you are enjoying it and having fun that's all the matters. 

2. Decide what you are actually going to do.

Now like I mentioned before you don't have to know everything right after you get engaged. But at some point you are going to have to decide together what the game plan is and for some it's totally easy and others it may be tough finding a compromise, but that's what relationships are all about is compromise. 

There are so many options these days when planning a wedding and I love that it's totally customizable to you and your style! You can elope with just the two of your or close family and friends, destination wedding, or backyard/church/venue wedding, so many possibilities. I always tell my couples as long as you got married and had a good time it was a successful day :)
