It's engagement season, and so many "congratulations" and well wishes are going around! I love this season where you can simply FEEL the love all around! On this first Wednesday of 2017, I am so happy to share a few things that are often not thought of until you get engaged and experience them yourself.
- First, you can't stop staring at your hand! It's true... You'll never be the same after the proposal, the anticipation of your marriage, and of course, the engagement ring on your hand. This symbol of love and forever is ON YOUR HAND. It's real, you're getting MARRIED!
- You won't believe how many times you retell your proposal story! In all of the excitement, everyone is going to ask you how your fiancé proposed! Expect and ENJOY this. Retelling your proposal story is part of the excitement and fun of being engaged!
- Everyone will ask what your wedding date is! I know, you may feel overwhelmed when loved ones and friends ask what your wedding date is right away, but they love you and they're sharing in your excitement! It's helpful to share a statement like - "We're celebrating our engagement now and will start planning soon!" or "We're thinking next fall!"
Most importantly (and a BONUS!), I don't think we tell newly engaged couples to ENJOY these moments enough. Time flies by, so take time to relax and truly experience the happiness of this time in your life!
