Regardless of it happening on a hot air balloon ride, or in your living room, the biggest surprise a woman would face in her life would be when her man gets down on one knee to propose. After you say yes, and proceed from being his girlfriend to being his fiancé, it may not be the smooth ride that you imagined it to be. Here are some of the preparations a newly proposed to bride-to-be needs to carry out, right after the big yes.
Call the Important People
After the all-important phone call to the parents have been made, there may still be a few others that you might have to call and convey the good news to. Be it your grandparents, your best friends, or your favourite aunt, they would always appreciate it if they heard it straight from you.
Throw a Big Bash
If you’re planning on doing things the proper way then you may need to throw a party to celebrate your engagement. While it is somewhat of an extra hassle for you to run around looking for engagement party venues in Merlbourne, when there is much more important things to be done, it may also be quite good to get your closest friends and family together to celebrate this important event in your life.
The best option, if you do not have any time on your hands, is to get your best friends or your parents to organize it for you. You can leave the job of looking for engagement party venues, selecting the menu and inviting the guests up to them, while you start planning for the wedding day.
Set a Budget
Sit down with your husband-to-be and decide on exactly how much you are willing to spend for the wedding. If you are on a non-extravagant budget then you may need to compromise on certain aspects. For example you may need to decide whether you have a big reception and a simple honeymoon or vice versa. Also remember, that if your parents are willing to help you out, then get them to spend for one of those extra touches that you may have been forced to leave out, due to budget constraints.
