So, he's finally popped the question and put a ring on it. Here's seven things YOU need to do the moment you get engaged.
#1 Celebrate wildly
We’re talking standing on tables dancing, throwing confetti at yourself, popping champagne, diving headfirst into your swimming pool (safely, of course…and, if you have one), choreographing multiple TikTok videos to highlight the new rock on your finger, throwing an engagement party and basically having. One. Truly. Epic. Time.
#2 Tell EVERYONE
Tell your bestie, your parents, his parents, your siblings, your grandparents, your cousins, your close friends, your not-so-close friends, your ex-friends, your boss, your boss’ boss, your boss’ dog, his cousins, his friends, the milkman, the Sainsbury’s attendant, the petrol station assistant, that woman you passed in the street…you get the idea.
#3 SUBSCRIBE. SUBSCRIBE. SUBSCRIBE.
Get clicking and signing up to all of your favourite wedding, hen party and bridal-related brands and businesses. We’re talking magazines, blogs, Team Hen (obviously), stationery designers, honeymoon sites, bridal shops, you name it. Often, they’ll flag up in-the-know info or offer up a discount you might not get elsewhere!
#4 Kickstart your PINTEREST
If pinning is your jam, you’ll instantly love visually curating each element of your engagement, hen party and wedding with Pinterest’s endless streams of inspiration. It’s also the perfect app to have to hand when you visit your vendors too. Need to show your chosen florist the exact botanical palette you’ve been dreaming of? Open the app, and BOOM, sorted.
#5 Get the BLING insured
It might not necessarily be the most exciting part of getting engaged, but it’s definitely necessary. Once things have calmed down a bit (and you’ve tidied up the multiple piles of champagne bottles scattered about the house) make sure your engagement ring fits perfectly and get that rock insured.
#6 SAVE THE DATE
Start thinking about a date. Whether you’re looking at a matter of months or a year and a half, getting a date in the diary will help kick things off when you finally dive headfirst into the wedding planning (and dress hunting)!
Don’t forget to really enjoy being a fiancé. Revel in your newly-engaged status and delight in flashing that rock. Team Hen has the perfect gift ideas and accessories for the freshly proposed-to, including their Engaged AF super soft tee, sassy wedding planner and endless amount of cute, Instagram-worthy extras.
