Pop a bottle of champagne, sing, dance, light fireworks-whatever it is you do, just celebrate!

Flaunt it

It may sound a little silly, but AFTER you have told the people who are most important in your life, put in on Facebook.Remember that your best friend is probably going to be a little upset if she has to find out through social media-so announce to your loved ones as soon as you feel fit. Then start showing off that ring to the rest of the world. If you are interested in sending out a save to date to announce, the ideal time is 6-8 months prior to your wedding date.

Save yourself some stress

Think of your engagement ring as a lifelong investment. After you accidentally wash your ring down the drain or your furry friend decides he wants it for dinner is about the time people realize their ring needs to be insured. Don’t wait until that stomach dropping moment and look into insurance as soon as you can. Flaunt it with no fear!

Smile for the camera

If your fiancé didn’t already arrange professional photographs of your engagement during, schedule an engagement photo-shoot. Many wedding photographers will offer this complimentary if you book them for your wedding day. This step is crucial-you are going to want to know your wedding photographer well, given they are going to be your new best friend on your wedding day.

After budgets have been set in place for every vendor and you have decided which type of venue you would like-go and visit them. Once you have narrowed down to two or three venues, go back again and visit around the time of day you would like to be married. This will give you an opportunity to get to know the staff at your wedding venue and can help you imagine your big day better. Remember that your two vendors that play the biggest role will be the venue and your wedding photographer, so you should prioritize with these two. Talented wedding photographers and the best venues will book very quickly, so it is important to get in contact with them as soon as you decide who you like best with your budget.

Rally the troops

Remember that these people probably already make your life easier on a daily basis, whether it is through laughter, advice or knowing when to pour you a glass of wine; so they are prepared to help out your big day. Plus, now remember you have close to five times the amount of Pinterest wedding dream boards to pick from! Or, if you need some more inspiration you can check out ours here.

Paul and I could not be happier with our engagement and wedding pictures. Deevo and the Fusion team completely captured our vision and our personalities. Now we have the very difficult decision of picking which pictures to frame because they are all frame-worthy.
