Just Engaged? Here's What to Do First

Did you get engaged over the holiday season? If so, congratulations! Here are a few things you need to do first:

Call the important people. Share your big and exciting news with your inner circle before you let Facebook and Twitter know. It's not okay for your manicurist to find out before your Grandmother.

Enjoy the moment. Yes, being engaged means you can now plan the wedding of your dreams; it also means that you just decided to spend the rest of your life with your soul mate. So, take some time (a couple of weeks) to relish in how romantic and awesome that is before you begin the craziness of planning.

Begin dreaming. Here comes the fun part! (for most people). Compare your fantasies with each other, then sign up for Pinterest; that way, you can create an online inspiration board. At this point, feel free to go crazy. You can go back and refine things after picking your venue.

Whip out your calendar. Have a range of pontential dates in mind before touring venues. Also, think about what season you envision and where you want to honeymoon; knowing this will help guide you toward your ideal time of year. Another tip: Ask other engaged friends when they're tying the knot so you can stay away from those dates.
