3 Things you Will Realize Only after Getting Engaged
You have probably dreamed and fantasized about the moment where the love of your life gets down on a knee to propose to you with an elegant diamond engagement ring. When it happens, you’ll probably just gasp, or cry, or have one among a variety of reactions before hopefully saying ‘Yes’. With that out of the way, your engagement journey begins.
The first and most important thing most women do after saying ‘Yes’ to a marriage proposal, is call their parents to tell them the news. After you make the engagement announcement to everyone else, they will be eager to know your story, plans for a wedding, and more. You normally won’t be prepared for the ways life will change after getting engaged, no matter how long you and your loved one have been dating, or how many times you’ve dressed up as a bridesmaid.
You Will Keep On Staring at the Ring
The amazing diamond sparkling on the ring finger of your left hand is something you won’t be able to take your eyes off for at least for a couple of weeks. Even if you are not a person who loves the showy aspects of diamond, it’s easy to get obsessed with the ring because it holds significant emotional value. Moreover, it will also keep on reminding you of the magical moment when your loved one proposed.
You May Have to Tell the Proposal Story a Million Times
When you call your friends and relatives to tell that you are engaged, the first question most of them will ask you is about how your boyfriend proposed. So get used to telling your proposal story over and over, because it’s part and parcel of the engagement paradigm. You may be even asked to tell it after the wedding ceremony. Hopefully, you won’t tire of the practice too soon.
The Wedding Details
Even before you get time to decide when you want to get married, family members and friends will probably begin asking about the date, venue, wedding dress, and other details. If you and your loved one have not discussed any of these things yet, it is best to say something like, “We’re so excited just being engaged right now. I’m sure there will be plenty of time to figure out the details over the coming months.”
