We all know that being newly engaged is awesome and a little nerve racking, but without a doubt one of the most exciting times of your life. Here are just a few of the best parts, and why being newly engaged is so great!
1. Saying Yes!
As much as you’ve talked about it, thought about it, and seen it in the movies, nothing quite prepares you for the feeling of either asking someone to marry you, or being the one to say ‘yes!’. There’s no adrenaline rush quite like it. Whether it’s a surprise proposal, or something that’s been a long time coming, it’s nerve-wracking, it’s exciting, and it’s entirely thrilling. We’d highly recommend it!
2. The Ring
We know, getting engaged is about so much more than just the jewellery, it’s about love, commitment, sharing, family and so much more. But let’s face it, it’s also about the ring! Whether it’s small and dainty, big and sparkling or something in between, there’s just something so special about having a new rock on your (or your partner’s) hand, that makes you smile every time you see it.
3. The Announcements
Different couples will have a different ways of telling their friends and family they’re engaged. Some will phone, others will do it in person, and for some couples, all their friends and family are waiting in the wings to celebrate as soon as there’s a ‘Yes’. Whatever way you do it, telling the first few, most important people, is perhaps the best part of getting engaged.
4. Everyone Is Happy For You
Of course, your closest loved ones are going to be over the moon excited for you, but sometimes it’s the love from all of the others that’s so thrilling – your bestie from grade one, or your long lost aunty – you’d be amazed at how many people will be sending their love and joy your way!
5. Proposing To Your Bridal Party
Picking your bridal party can be a massive task or a really easy one, but the best bit is telling! Get creative with your proposals and you’re sure to have a blast telling the nearest and dearest in your life that they’re going to be a little more than just a guest at your wedding.
6. The Start Of Planning
All of those dreams, all of those thoughts, all of those maybes can now be a reality. If planning isn’t you’re thing, or you have no idea how you’re going to get it done, a wedding planner is the way to go!
