Congratulations to all the couples who got engaged over the holidays.
The next thing you should be doing is . . .
. . . enjoy being an engaged couple.
I know you’re excited (and rightly so!), and probably want to dive in with all of the fun of planning your big day.
But, I repeat,
Enjoy being engaged!
Getting and being engaged is a once-in-a-lifetime experience so for right now savor this time and . . .
. . . show off your ring
. . . lose yourself while gazing into your beloved’s eyes
. . . relish being a “fiance/fiancee”
Of course it’s normal to want to start working on your wedding plans, and some folks even wonder why it’s recommended to just enjoy this period without doing any actual planning.
- It will give you a little breather before you get knee-deep in the plans and details.
- If your honey spent a lot of time and effort on the proposal, give him (or her) a break from another round of planning.
- It’s very likely that the two of you haven’t even talked about how you’re envisioning your wedding day to be. So how can you really start planning it?
- Once you do start in on your wedding plans, you may experience “wedding overload” – where you’re thinking about wedding stuff 24/7, everywhere you turn someone is asking about your wedding. If you do, you’re going to thank yourself later for taking this “newly engaged period.”
Then, when you do start in on your wedding plans, give me a call so we can create a “game plan” that allows you to enjoy the next phase of your engagement.
Hearts, Joy, Love!
