1. Make Sure Your Nails are on Fleek
Your hands will be in the spotlight for the next couple of weeks, which means your manicure must be on fleek. Otherwise, friends will be focusing more on your chipped nail polish than your gorgeous engagement ring. Not cool.
2. Post a Ring Selfie
A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Now that you’ve got the important phone calls out of the way (because in the case of your parents, a picture alone won’t suffice), it’s time to announce to the world that, yes, you’re engaged! The best way to do so, obviously, is by showing off that rock, brides.
3. Update Your Facebook Relationship Status
It’s not official until it’s on Facebook, duh! Some brides will be dying to do this right away, whereas others may prefer to wait a bit. There’s no right or wrong answer here. But, expect to receive tons of love (okay, likes) once you do formally update your status to engaged.
Cheers to married life! Round up some of your best friends and family and go out for a celebration, or have a special date night solo if that’s more your style. You’re engaged, and that’s totally worth toasting.
5. Chill Out for a Week or Two
Don’t jump into wedding planning right away! Take a week or two to let the news really sink in and to just savor the moment. Trust us, you’ll have enough stress over the next twelve months to last you a lifetime.
6. Plan Your Engagement Party
Figure out if you plan on having a engagement party. Odds are, your parents or his have already hinted that they’d love to host it. If so, start discussing details.
