    6 Tips for Newly Engaged Couple

    You just got engaged! Let us be the first to congratulate you and your future spouse! Now, you are scouring the internet to try to figure out what you are supposed to do next.

    Here are our top 6 tips that will help you successfully navigate this exciting time in your life. We are experts in the entire engagement process - helping our customers even after their proposal is over.

     

    Tip-for-Engaged-Couple

    Wait until you have personally told everyone close to you and your fiancé before you go showing off your new ring to your entire social following. We suggest making calls in the following order: 1) both of your parents, 2) any siblings either of you may have, 3) grandparents and best friends, and 4) any of your other close friends that you feel should hear about it straight from you. After that, we give you permission to post your engagement ring selfie on Instagram.

    Be prepared for plenty of questions during the phone calls after you're engaged. Here are some tips on how to handle them. 

    • Question: When is the wedding?!
      Possible answer: We're thinking of a summer wedding or We want to wait a year to get all of our affairs in order.
    • Question: How did he/she ask?!
      Possible answer: You're going to want to take this opportunity to fine tune your story - you'll be telling it many times. Try to make it as sappy and succinct as you can.

     

    Tip-for-Engaged-Couple-1.1

    If your fiancé proposed with a Gunderson's engagement ring, we are sure that it is worth getting insured. You do not want one of your biggest - and more important - purchases to be uninsured. You can add it to your current homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. Don’t have insurance? Now is the time to take that step.

     

    Tip-for-Engaged-Couple-1.2

    Get an idea of the size of your wedding by making a first draft of the guest list. Next, discuss and set your budget. These two factors are the foundation and determine the type of wedding you choose to have. We suggest allocating 48% of your budget to your reception, 12% to the photographer, 10% to entertainment,10% to the rings, 8% to flowers, 2% to gifts, 2% to invitations, 3% to the ceremony, 3% to the dress/tux,  and 2% to transportation.

     

    Tip-for-Engaged-Couple-1.3

    We know you’re excited that you're engaged and want to share your joy with all of your friends and followers. But holding back on how much you post about your wedding plans can actually make your life easier. It will reduce the unsolicited advice, number of questions, hurt feelings and self-invited guests.

     

    Tip-for-Engaged-Couple-1.5

    • Gunderson's Bridal Package: Our extensive bridal package includes a free wedding planner with tips to every detail that goes into planning your idyllic wedding.
    • Websites and applications: For the bride that doesn't know where to begin, The Knot and Wedding Wire can be invaluable resources. You can find the perfect venue, dress, photographers, and so much more.

     

    Tip-for-Engaged-Couple-1.6

    With all of that said, make time to date each other and keep the romance alive. Set aside date nights where you focus only on each other and not the wedding. Wedding planning can be very stressful. Take a deep breath and remember that the commitment is much more important than the wedding. This is a time to build your relationship up — not let the stress tear it down.

    Most of all, don’t forget to have fun! It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of wedding planning after you become engaged. But keep in mind that this is a magical time in your relationship. So take the time to pause and enjoy it along the way.
